The Brown Hotel, for Georgian-Revival glamour / heavyweight history near the Muhammad Ali Center
You can’t visit Louisville without tasting the famous hot brown, and where better to taste it than where it was created: the Brown Hotel. It may be the city’s culinary icon, but the hotel itself is no side dish. Hand-woven throws and hand-polished Spanish Ramora marble floors add an old world warmth to every refined suite. The room named the Greatest is obviously the Muhammad Ali Suite, where a mahogany four-poster bed and marble jacuzzi tub will make you feel like a champ.
