My wife and I held our ceremony and reception in the crystal ballroom. Jeri was amazing, she was available whenever we had questions and was always willing to help. The staff was great, as they made sure the night went off without a hitch. It is a little pricey but they will do all they can to help with menu options to find something that works for you. The manager of the hotel stopped in while we had our food tasting to make sure everything was excellent. I seriously can't say enough nice things about The Brown Hotel.

We spent our wedding night here and it was wonderful! I truly felt like a princess thanks to the quality of service. The bellhops were fantastic, and absolutely treated us like royalty. Maybe we'll go back on our 10-year anniversary!

The Brown was perfect. With Jeri taking care of everything, I did not even need a wedding planner! I almost did not look at the Brown initially because I assumed it would be too expensive. Though not cheap, the prices were certainly competitive and, considering the exceptional level of quality, actually an amazing value for your money. Jeri was a pleasure to work with and responded to my many questions in detail and, perhaps most importantly, right away. Every detail was simply perfect, and Jeri worked with my vendors to allow me to do nothing but just enjoy the party. The food was delicious, truly a higher level of quality than any large event I have ever attended - and I have been to a lot of weddings and work events! I was also impressed with professionalism and kindness of the staff. When I went to peek at the ballroom before anything began, the waiters were receiving pre-reception instructions. When they saw me in the corner, they started smiling, clapping, and saying congratulations. The sincerity in their immediate smiles conveyed sincere pride in the work they do, and it showed all night long. Additionally, our many out-of-town guests appreciated the convenience of having just an elevator ride at the end of the night (very competitive wedding rate) and reported rave reviews of their experiences.

I can't say enough good things about the Brown Hotel and especially about Jeri Stewart, the on-site Wedding Coordinator! My wedding reception was held at the Brown and I had several out-of-town guests (including my husband and I) who stayed at the hotel. It is truly a gorgeous place with a magnificent ballroom and very comfortable guest rooms. The chef is amazing and I was so happy with the way they worked with me to provide our youngest guests with something they'd enjoy for dinner and that I was able to create some special items of my own (not taking straight from the menu) for our big day! I planned my wedding from out of town and could not have been happier with the responsiveness and attentiveness that was given to my emails and calls throughout the planning process. Plus, Jeri provides a great listing of recommended vendors which made it easier to plan from so far away. I love the ambiance and character of this historic hotel and would highly recommend it to all future brides! We have great photos and great memories from our wedding there!

The Brown made my daughter's wedding the most unbelievable event. Everyone was attentive, professional and made us feel like we were the first and only wedding held at the Brown (of course we weren't) but you get my point. I would recommend the Brown to anyone wanting a once and a lifetime experience for their wedding.
