Mem­o­ries of the Brown Palace on my wed­ding night in 1952

“125 years of fame, for­tune, his­tory and lore,” Aug. 3 Life & Cul­ture story.

In­ter­est­ing ar­ti­cle about the Brown Palace Ho­tel by Gra­ham Am­brose. It brought back mem­o­ries of 65 years ago and my wed­ding day, June 8, 1952. My hus­band-to-be was serv­ing in the Air Force in New Jersey and had come to Den­ver for our wed­ding. I’m an in­cur­able ro­man­tic and I had booked the bridal suite at the Brown Palace in Fe­bru­ary 1952 for our honey­moon night. Ar­riv­ing at the ho­tel af­ter the wed­ding and re­cep­tion, we were so dis­ap­pointed to learn that we would not be stay­ing in the bridal suite, as the cou­ple who stayed there the night be­fore wanted to stay there again.

Just as a side note: The to­tal bill was $16.65, with two restau­rant charges. The room, No. 441, was $11.
