The Redmont is the oldest hotel in Birmingham and its recent renovation has embraced the glamour of the 1920’s, when it first opened. The 120 guest rooms comprise mostly traditional bedrooms, beautifully decorated and furnished with luxurious linens and a plush bed. For additional space, The Redmont offers 11 suites, each with separate living area. ‘Harvest Restaurant & Bar’ is the main dining room, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and for a quick pastry, panini or coffee, ‘2101 Café’ is located just off the lobby.
Signature cocktails can be enjoyed from ‘The Roof’, affording great views over the city skyline. This charming boutique hotel is within walking distance of the Theatre District, where you will discover many dining and theatre options.
The Brown is an iconic hotel dating back to 1923, its blend of old world elegance and modern day comfort reflecting the rich heritage and Southern gentility that have made Louisville a draw for lovers of bourbon, bluegrass music and the Kentucky Derby. The Brown boasts Louisville’s most luxurious and sophisticated accommodations,
its 203 bedrooms and suites individually decorated with mahogany beds, upholstered furnishings and the signature Brown Hotel throw. The romantic ‘English Grill’ serves contemporary American cuisine with a Kentucky twist, whilst ‘J. Graham’s Cafe’ offers casual a la carte and buffet dining, including a sumptuous Sunday Brunch. The lobby bar is a popular spot for handcrafted cocktails and classic comfort food and wherever you choose to eat, be sure to try the legendary ‘Hot Brown’, invented at the hotel in 1926.
An early 19th-century antebellum mansion set in 26 acres of manicured gardens, the Monmouth Inn reflects all that is charming about the South, where guests can expect gracious hospitality, luxury lodging, excellent cuisine, historic tours of the house, and a lovingly restored garden. The 30 elegantly appointed spacious rooms and suites are located either in the main house or one of seven delightfully named outhouses, and each accommodation has its own charm, with all rooms affording views of the rolling, manicured grounds and some featuring a spa tub and fireplace. Wander around the meticulously nurtured gardens, accompanied by the gentle humming of cicadas, then enjoy mint juleps or a cocktail in the ‘Quitman Study’ or lounge, with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner in the award- winning ‘Restaurant 1818’ inside the antebellum home.
In case you’re wondering, Cincinnati is not in Kentucky, but the Hotel Covington is located just across the state border in the city of Covington. The 114-room hotel began life as Kentucky’s first modern skyscraper and high-end department store, and stands today as a testament to the days when it first opened in the early 1900’s.
Each guest room and suite is rich in character, with a generous amount of space, and includes mini-fridge stocked with local goodies. ‘Coppin’s Restaurant & Bar’ takes its name from the original department store and features local speciality food and drink, ‘Artisan Coffee Bar’ is exactly what it says, and ‘The Walk Up’ is rooted in a tradition of street food and speakeasies. The hotel patio offers lawn games, night-time movie screenings, a creative cocktail menu and a roaring fire on winter evenings.
