Stunning venue, top notch service
My husband and I were married at the Brown Hotel on October 19, 2018. We wanted an upscale and special venue where we could have our ceremony and reception in the same location, and that would have fantastic food and drinks. Our vision was luxe, elegant, and intimate. With a guest list of 60 people, we weren't sure we would find this at the Brown, having mainly seen photos of the very large Crystal Ballroom online.Sent on 12/03/2018
Thankfully, we went to tour the space anyway and met with Meghan McNeill, who showed us other options within the hotel. We knew the Bluegrass Ballroom was exactly what we were looking for when we saw it. Our ceremony and reception were both in that room, with cocktail hour in the South Lobby while the room was flipped. While the venue was gorgeous, it was Meghan who really helped the Brown shine for us. Throughout the planning process, Meghan was a complete joy to work with. She was attentive, thorough, professional, and responsive. As gorgeous of a venue as it is, the experience was elevated and made so easy by Meghan. She is a breath of fresh air when dealing with such a stressful life event!
The day of the wedding, everything went even better than expected. Meghan and the event staff were top notch. We received so many compliments on the food and drinks ("you win for best wedding entree ever" said one guest.) If you couldn't tell already, I highly recommend the Brown Hotel. Thank you to Meghan for being instrumental in helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams!

The Brown Hotel was magical and the perfect setting for a picture perfect wedding. The hotel is gorgeous - like something out of a book or movie. I have nothing but great things to say about the staff - Chef KT Thompson, Events Manager Meghan McNeill, Events Coordinator Jennifer Mitchell and Concierge Pat Sloaman were beyond compare. They elevate customer service to the next level. Pat recommended local masseuse Kristi King for an in room massage and it was perfect. From the moment we checked in the staff were always checking for ways to make sure everything was to our liking and to better our stay even more. The wedding itself was perfect in every way. The Crystal Ballroom is beautiful and the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Our Banquet Captain Shari and her team of servers and cooks did an amazing job with dinner. Meghan and KT made our tasting experience wonderful and the food was amazing. The lobby bar was a special and pretty space to congregate with our guests for an evening cocktail. The bell staff was professional and a pleasure to work with. I could go on and on. Whether you are looking for weekend trip with someone special, a cocktail before a concert event downtown or a wedding or special event venue - you will be in the best hands with the Brown Hotel.Sent on 02/02/2018
