About
Description
Located at the corners of Fourth and Broadway in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, The Brown Hotel is one of Louisville's most treasured landmarks. Built in 1923 at a cost of $4 million by J. Graham Brown, the More hotel was a magnet for many prominent guests and celebrities during the 1920s through the 1950s. In 1971, two years after the founder passed away, The Brown closed as a hotel and later reopened as the Board of Education building. Less

Not that I saw. The hotel is in a downtown area and so street parking is not available. There are a couple of parking garages close by by the incremental cost of the valet service was small enough that I used it.
