DENVER – The Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver is celebrating 125 years.
The Colorado icon was built in 1892 and named after its original owner, Henry Brown. It was not just a hotel, but a grand hotel with fireplaces and bathrooms in each room. A hotel with a grand entrance, grand staircase and grand ballroom. A hotel that still stands today.
Over the years, it has hosted several presidents from Theodore Roosevelt to Bill Clinton.
