The tours of our historic hotel acquaint guests with our history, traditions, architecture, art, and property offerings. All tours are conducted by knowledgeable guides and take approximately 75 minutes.

Tours are offered Wednesdays at 3 P.M. and Saturdays at 11:30 A.M.

Throughout the month of October, all Public tours will be our popular “Enduring Spirits” tours, featuring true tales of unexplained phenomena reported around the hotel over the years. But fear not — They’ll still include plenty of Brown Palace history.
