The Destination
While Louisville may be synonymous with the Derby (and all that comes with it: mint juleps, big hats, and Millionaire's Row) there's a lot more happening in Kentucky's largest city—bourbon! the East Market District! performing arts venues! A city defined by its patchwork of distinct neighborhoods—Germantown's hip, eclectic scene is an attraction in and of itself—Louisville gives visitors a chance to revel in the spirit of the Old South. Ride a roller coaster of up-and-coming restaurants, microbreweries, and art galleries into this city's equally bright and progressive future.

The Digs
Not far from Churchill Downs (three miles, in fact), The Brown Hotel, a AAA Four Diamond property and one of T+L's World's Best 500 Hotels in 2012, is a "fixture in the city's history" on the corner of Fourth and Broadway says Garden & Gun. "From the towering marble-clad main lobby to the antique-appointed rooms, the classic 16-story English Renaissance block exudes old-school elegance of the Gilded Age. Given its location near the landmark Palace Theater, 'The Brown' plays host to more than its share of celebrities, especially during Derby Week."

Ornate hand-painted plaster relief ceilings and decorative crown moldings are still intact throughout the hotel, yet the guest rooms are a study in contemporary sophistication: Beds are topped with Egyptian cotton linens, European white goose down comforters, and a custom-designed throw blanket, while other amenities include flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access. Club Floor room guests have plush terry robes, a dedicated concierge, and access to the Club Lounge, where a continental breakfast, afternoon snacks, hors d'oeuvres, and complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks are on the house.

  • "Opened in 1923, this grand-but-intimate hotel has a gilded second-floor lobby that gleams with marble and polished wood. A special Louisville dish, the Hot Brown, was invented here."
