No idea where to stay in Louisville? The Brown Hotel simply exudes elegance and class. This will be immediately evident to you upon entering the hotel. The grand piano, elaborate ceiling art, and twinkling chandeliers make it clear that your stay in Louisville will be luxurious.
The hotel rooms are equally elegant with classic neutral colored décor and vintage wallpaper. The Brown Hotel is a few minutes away from the airport, Louisville Place Theatre, KFC Yum Center, and Churchill Downs. If you feel like staying in, you can enjoy coffee at the onsite J. Graham’s Café, gourmet dinner at The English Grill, or a few drinks at the Lobby Bar.
The building in which the apartment is located was built during the Victorian era. It incorporates elements of modern design such as a minimalist color scheme, consisting mainly of white, deep chestnut, and neutral tones paired with colorful accent pieces; however, its roots are still visible in the used of faded, vintage furniture and brick panel by the fireplace. You can admire other historic homes, as the apartment is in Old Louisville. The Historic Central Park, downtown, and Churchill Downs are within walking distance, and NuLu, Germantown, and the Highlands are all a short drive away from the apartment.

The arts and culture scene in Louisville is at an all-time high these days.

With the property being in such a prime location, visitors have plenty of opportunities to check out what magic the arts district has to offer. You can freely borrow the bike and explore NuLu at your convenience!

Oh, what would it be like to live right along the river? At this insanely beautiful home, you won’t have to wonder! Located just eight minutes by car from downtown Louisville, this property proudly stands on River Road and is aptly called The River’s Edge Oasis. This large home can comfortably accommodate five people, although, with its intimate and scenic location, it’s a popular choice among couples. How nice would it be to sip on a good ol’ glass of bourbon with your loved one, sit by the balcony, and watch the night overtake the vast skies?
