Brown Palace Hotel

Brown Palace Hotel

Brown Palace Hotel is the second-oldest hotel in Denver, Colorado and is the first atrium-style hotel ever to be built.Fact|date = January 2008 It is now operated by Quorum Hotels and Resorts. It was built in 1892, one year later than the Oxford Hotel. It was named for its original owner, Henry Brown, and was designed with its odd triangular shape by architect Frank Edbrooke.

Guests included and still include entrepreneurs, legislators, presidents and foreign officials. Past guests include the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown (she stayed at the hotel only a week after the "Titanic" disaster), Dr. Sun Yat Sen (just prior to being the president of the new Republic of China), Queen Marie of Romania, the Duke of San Macario, and The Beatles. Presidential guests inluded Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Harry S Truman, and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Since its opening, light has poured into the atrium from the stained-glass skylight eight stories above. Afternoon tea is now a custom in the lobby with Denverites and visitors alike listening to a harpist or pianist. The hotel also includes four highly rated restaurants: fine dining in the Palace Arms, elegant breakfast and lunch in Ellyington's, casual lunch and dinner in the Ship Tavern, and the members-only Brown Palace Club.

Each year during the National Western Stock Show in Denver, the Grand Champion Steer is taken to the Brown Palace and displayed in the lobby.
