THINGS TO DO IN DENVER - The Brown Palace

The Brown Palace Hotel


The Brown Palace is a luxury hotel where you can go for a special day, night or weekend and be pampered.     The Brown is the 2nd oldest hotel in Denver, only to the Oxford Hotel and named for Henry C. Brown.     The historic hotel opened their doors on August 12,1892 and has gone through many renovations over the years.   The Brown Palace Hotel


This historic hotel was designed by Frank E. Edbrooke to be reminiscent of fine hotels "back east".    

The Brown Palace and Spa





Today, these are the "fun facts" about this hotel -   

  ~ The 720' artesian well is located under the lobby floor and provides water to every room's facet.

   ~ Every President has resided in this hotel since 1905, except Calvin Coolidge.

  ~ In 1937, top two floors were the Skyline Apartments complete with kitchens, & were permanent residents until they moved out in the mid '80's. 

   ~ There were rumors there was once a tunnel under the hotel connecting the hotel to the Navarre building where there was a gambling den & brothel at the time. 

  ~ There have been stories over the years of the hotel being haunted by previous patrons.

  ~ President Eisenhower was practicing his golf swing, hit a wayward ball which hit the fireplace mantel, and remains to this day as a souvenir.

Hello Joan,

I have been in some really old hotels. they would have a little plaque in the door saying "so in so stayed here and the date".

Doe's this one have the some thing. I like to read those little plaques all the time when traveling around the country. A lot of history in them.

Best, Clint McKie

Joan, from the picture it looked like the building is in triangle shape reminds me of a historic building name "Triangle Inn". Thanks for sharing the great information.

Eileen, I think Room 904 would be a sleepless night!   

Barbara, The Brown Palace is truly could be a weekend of elegance and relaxation!

Lynda, we all have these gorgeous historic hotels in our towns --- bet you have a few!

DeeDee, it is fun to research the facts --- it can be amazing!

Clint, I have been there many times, and cannot remember seeing plaques, I will need to look next time I am there.   Having every President except one spend the night, they must!

Larry & Sheila, when I was married, my husband & I would go down to the Tavern, and get a drink that came in a bowl with a straw and a lily pad!    I think it was called a Scorpion.      Should check that out again!

Ritu, glad you enjoyed the history of this historic hotel!

Kwee, I will need to Google this Triange Inn.     This hotel has lots of character & charm.
