About Brown's Hotel

The striking Georgian facade of Brown's Hotel is easily spotted on Albemarle Street, as there's often a smart Bentley parked outside (available to chauffeur hotel guests around the city). Brown's is one of the capital's most quintessentially British hotels, with a history stretching as far back as 1837 - the hotel has hosted royalty, dignitaries and many a local celebrity in that time, not to mention that, Brown's is thought to have been the inspiration behind Agatha Christie's At Bertram's Hotel.

If you're looking for a grand, luxurious location for a private or corporate event, Brown's offers six sophisticated meeting rooms that range in size from the cosy St George's Room, to the spacious Clarendon Room. The latter is by far the largest event space at the hotel, with capacity for 72 seated guests for banquets and private dinners, or up to 120 standing for networking events, cocktail parties and the like. 

The hotel also has a number of smaller suites available, each of which treads a line between quintessential period features and modern design. The St. George's, Lord Byron and Graham Bell rooms are all ideal for for intimate gatherings, whether that be private dinners, celebrations with friends and family, or business meetings. The Lord Byron and Graham Bell rooms are connected, allowing for them to be hired together for larger gatherings, or corporate and team building events where you might want a breakout room. 

The same is true of the mid-sized Niagara and Roosevelt rooms, which can be hired individually or in conjuction - together they form a room similar in size to the Clarendon room. 

Meanwhile, the expert events team at Brown's Hotel is on hand to help tailor your event and make sure that everything goes as planned.

Named after the English poet, peer and politician – and considered one of the leading figures of the Romantic Movement in the early 19th century.

The most intimate room of all of the six event spaces at Brown’s, The St George’s Room marks an important time in the expansion of the hotel in 1889. The second owner acquired a hotel that backed on to Brown’s, St. George’s Hotel, to become one larger hotel - the presence of the hotel remains within the building, such as an original stained glass panelling in The Donovan Bar. This quaint room can host up to 10 for dinner and 8 as a meeting space. The room is situated on the ground floor to the right of the Dover Street entrance and next to The Clarendon Room.
