4/10 Fair

….disappointing
We were really looking forward to staying in The “famous” Brown Hotel. We fully understand the age of the facility, and understand there will be some wear & tear. We expected that vintage elegant feel to the place…. However… our hotel room was far from elegant… it was not even clean! The carpets were threadbare & dirty. The dust-ruffle on the bed was stained with something dark….I’m telling myself it was coffee…. I hope it was coffee! The bathroom was not clean….at all. We were very dissatisfied with the condition of our room in this “elegant gem”. We also had dinner in the Lobby Bar. The atmosphere, the food, and service were excellent!
