We arrived late at night and left early in the morning, but in the short time we were there, the staff was pretty friendly, and the sheets and pillows were pretty comfy. The location is close to Beale Street and plenty of attractions. You will pay $25 for valet parking.

This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Peabody Hotel and a short walk to Beale St. They offer an airport and local area shuttle which is really convenient.

This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Peabody Hotel and a short walk to Beale St. They offer an airport and local area shuttle which is really convenient. The property seems to have undergone some updating but the lobby and adjacent restaurant/bar area seem cold and somewhat unwelcoming. Our room was large and bright but lacked somewhat in cleanliness. Our housekeeper was less than attentive and we had to bring a number of issues to the manager on duty. I’m an IHG Platinum member with a documented request that my room not be near the elevator. We checked in and our room is right across from the elevator door. When brought to the front desk attendant’s attention she moved us the a room sharing walls with the elevator shaft. Didn’t feel like another visit down to the lobby. After our first night our bathroom was left dirty by the housekeeper and soiled bed linens were not replaced and there were no towels in the bathroom. A call to the front desk for towels was not addressed for well over an hour then two hours after the first towels arrived another housekeeper knocked with yet another set. A manager came to address issues with our dirty room and most but not all were addressed but again didn’t want to perpetuate the issues. Although the location is convenient I don’t think I’d stay here again. Also of note, our room overlooked an empty dirty pool and building construction. Although not swimming season it did not appear the pool is functional. Read less

This is a modern hotel a few minutes walk from the bustling Beale St area. The bathroom was a little grubby but the rest of the room was clean. Our first nights sleep was ruined completely by the pouring of concrete into the roof of the building next door. This started around 1am and lasted until 6am.

This is a modern hotel a few minutes walk from the bustling Beale St area. The bathroom was a little grubby but the rest of the room was clean. Our first nights sleep was ruined completely by the pouring of concrete into the roof of the building next door. This started around 1am and lasted until 6am. The hotel didn’t offer to move us to a quieter part of the hotel - we were in a room at the end of the corridor that was at the side of the new building. Fortunately this wasn’t repeated on our second night. Valet parking was compulsory unless you wanted to park elsewhere in another car park. Staff were always friendly and attentive. Read less

Stayed here for 5 night during Memphis in May. The staff on reception were extrememly welcoming when we arrived. The room was fine but I think it is fair to say the hotel needs a little bit of updating. Location is superb. Walking distance to all the main attractions of this great city so definitely recommended.

It is located in the center, so you can explore Memphis by foot. Do not park your car at this hotel, but one block away for only 10 a night. The hotel is OK. The room and beds were clean and spacious enough for a few nights. But the pool was very dirty and old.
