“I don’t stay in an hotel! I stay at Brown’s.”
A discerning traveller circa 1880.

Welcome to London’s oldest five star hotel. In 1837 a certain James Brown made two important decisions:
1. He saw a niche in the market for a first rate, genteel inn, an early 19th century term for an hotel.
2. He made an advantageous marriage. His bride, Sarah Willis, was Lady Byron’s personal maid. She was a diligent woman, helping her husband to build a fine hotel.
This blissful combination gave us Brown’s Hotel.
