LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Downtown Louisville's historic Brown Hotel announced on Friday the completion of the year-long, $4 million renovation of all 293 of its guest rooms.
Designer Jeanne Jenkins of Secret Gardens Interiors reimagined the rooms with new window and wall treatments, floor coverings, furniture and art.
The redesign project marks one of the largest transformations in the hotel's 89-year existence.
"My design vision for this project was the same that any lover of history would have," said Jenkins. "I wanted to stay true to the original vision of the building's creator."
Kentucky themes are prominent throughout the hotel's 16 newly renovated floors with images of horses and Kentucky Derby scenes.
In an effort to make the project eco-friendly, many existing pieces were repurposed or refurbished locally, according to a hotel press release.
Bathrooms also received makeovers with granite-top vanities and Spanish marble accents.
"Keeping the hotel in top shape is an ongoing mission for us," said General Manager Brad Walker. "We're always working to go above and beyond the expectations of our guests so that they come back year after year."
