This was our first stay at Brown's and we both enjoyed it. We booked through American Express which got us an upgrade to an Executive room and an £85 food and beverage credit.
The room was well sized, on two levels and as with other older hotels in London it does have character (this is with regard to the floors which aren't all perfect!!)
Huge bathroom with a very powerful shower and deep bath. Good air conditioning in the room which helped as it was a hot weekend when we stayed. One minor point - we think the room would benefit from curtains with blackout backing as opposed to the roman blind which is currently there - this did leak through light into the room.
By using the £85 credit we booked a champagne tea (for 2 of us). It was a nice tea but not as good, in our opinion, as others we've had (like the Savoy etc.). The champagne tea is £51 each which allows 1 glass of champagne (Ruinart). The sandwiches were well filled but we would have liked some slight differences here, maybe some mini-rolls? We had a second glass of champagne each (which is £17 a glass, so not cheap).
The location for us was ideal and the hotel is definitely not as "busy" as other, like Claridges that get a number of people just visiting the foyer etc. The hotel had a different, more relaxed feel but the service was of very high, and friendly, level.
Would we stay again? Possibly, it all depends where we are going in London.
