Tours: Another unique and special Valentine’s touch at The Brown Palace is the “Affairs of the Heart” Historical Tour. Historian Julia Kanellos conducts special historical tours of the 114-year-old Brown Palace Hotel featuring the romantic rendezvous that have occurred throughout the years. These themed tours will be offered to the public for free on Feb. 10, 13 & 14 starting at 1 p.m From the story of hotel founder Henry C. Brown, who at 74 took a 22-year-old for his third wife, and romantic couples like Lowell and Frances Thomas, and President Ike and Mamie Eisenhower, to the scandalous affairs of Isabelle “Sassy” Springer and Mrs. Louise Crawford Hill, The Brown Palace has seen them all. The tours will highlight these, as well as World War II love stories and more.
Before the tour, visitors can have lunch in the casual Ship Tavern or upscale Ellyngton’s. For a special treat, enjoy traditional afternoon tea in the atrium lobby and have long stem roses delivered from The Brown’s own Flower Shop.
