A celebrated destination in Downtown Denver since 1892, The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa knows a thing or two about ensuring our guests’ happiness. Although we pay homage to our past through our preserved architectural details, original artwork and history tours, we also aim to be innovative so our guests enjoy a relaxed and luxurious experience.
You may have heard about our popularity with presidents – every U.S. president since Teddy Roosevelt has stayed at The Brown with the exception of Calvin Coolidge and Barack Obama – or our Beatles Suite, complete with a custom jukebox and stylish entertainment center, but consider the following unique features that you’ll find in one place only: The Brown Palace.
Bee Hives on Our Roof
Scared of getting stung? Fear not—our bees live all the way on top of the hotel. We installed three hives back in 2010 and have added more along the way to use their fresh honey at our spa, in our food, and even in our house bourbon.
A Cigar Bar with Customized Humidors
In Downtown Denver, there are few places left to puff a fine cigar indoors. Our very own Churchill Bar is one of those places. The bar sells cigars from its world-class humidor, and The Brown even offers custom humidor rental for personal cigar storage.
Traditional Afternoon Tea
With Devonshire cream shipped directly from England and the magical sounds of a live harpist floating through the air, we take our Afternoon Tea seriously. Participate in our long-standing tradition, complete with tea pastries, scones and tea sandwiches.
Our Own Artesian Well
Can’t get over the taste of our water? You may not know that The Brown Palace sits on its own artesian well, located more than 700 feet below the hotel. The two fountains in the lobby get their water directly from the well. Give one a try.
A hotel that has been around since 1892 is bound to have a few lingering guests. Sign up for our popular Ghost Tour, highlighting the tales of unexplained phenomena and spirits who appear to have chosen to spend the afterlife with us. We also offer a variety of other tours for scared souls.
