Verified Reviews of The Brown Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Unexpected Bill of $18,000."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I just received an invoice from the Brown Hotel for over $18,000. We made a large block for our parents at this hotel. However, we explained the your tournament was not a Stay to Play tournament, nor did we require the to stay at this hotel. So, parents may have chose to stay at other hotels. We confirmed verbally with the Hotel multiple times that we wanted to have a release date. If rooms were not picked up, we wanted to release the rooms back to the public. They agreed and said that they set up these types of blocks all the time. The Brown is now trying to collect because they are stating we did not fill the 80% requirement. We are still in the process of communicating with the hotel regarding this matter and it could turn out to be resolved in the near future. However, we were blind sided by this. We have never experience this type of contractual agreement outside of a Stay to Play event.

"Charming and beautiful."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
stayed here for an on premesis wedding. Everything was fantastic. Food at wedding was outstanding. Enjoyed breakfast and service at J Graham's. The location of the property was a bit dubious but that can't be helped. Enjoyed our stay. The tub did not drain but not a huge deal.

Testimonials:

Testimonials icon
"It was quick and easy and non-binding which was great. Allowed me to reach out to the hotels I was interested in learning more about and ignore the ones that I did not think were a good fit as well as let me know who did not have availability. I'd definitely use this service again." C.V. - Clifton Park, NY
