What’s wrong with my orchid?
She was doing so well a few weeks ago! She had 4 pretty blooms and everything. But now the blooms fell off and it just started turning brown :( root rot??
The leaves look great! Orchids will bloom and then lose their blooms. Sometimes the stems stay green and sometimes the stems brown. You can cut the stem off and care for your plant.

I see it has drainage and a great, chunky soil mix-- that's amazing for the plant! 
If that were my plant, I would cut the stem below the brown and above the last green node. A few of us, earlier this year, found out that an orchid needs a dip in temperature to be able to bloom. perhaps if you were going into the colder months, you can look forward to a new bloom next year! 😁
