I was in town on business and put up at the Holiday Inn UofM. Very smoothly-run operation with friendly staff and clean, well-appointed facilities. The room was large with a separate living and bedroom area. The exercise room was small but had a variety of cardio equipment and a weights station. The food at the restaurant was very good. It's...

I got extremely lucky on this one. I needed a hotel for just one night in Memphis, and chose this Holiday Inn because it used the least number of points. I had no idea how great this place was until I arrived. It is a beautiful property and the staff is extremely helpful. And it doesn't hurt that there is... More

We were very impressed by the welcome by Joa, even after she had to put up with undue criticism of the hotel due to a third party booking. Then we were extremely pleased with Keonna, both in the evening and in the morning in the dining area. Both of these deserve a raise. Everything about the hotel was very pleasant... More

We stayed here overnight for a wedding and were very happy with our choice. Despite roadwork outside, we were able to find our way around town easily. The staff was very friendly and helpful ... one offered to light up the miniature Holiday Inn sign on the second floor lobby and waited while I photographed it. We liked that it... More

I stayed here during Univ Memphis homecoming. What a delightful staff! Check in was very courteous. The restaurant staff went above and beyond with making me a homemade pizza and the bartender at the lounge was delightful and offered excellent service while I waited on my dinner. The rooms were clean,roomy and comfortable beds. Wifi was excellent.

I was visiting Memphis for a short trip to interview at the nearby University of Memphis, and this hotel was so hospitable and accommodating. It is an absolutely beautiful hotel, and the entire staff was very pleasant and made my short stay quite memorable!

Have stayed here multiple times and it is always clean, friendly and has a great breakfast buffet. Front staff is always helpful. Restuarant staff is prompt and attentive. Convenient and in a very nice neighborhood. Would recommend this as a great place to stay!
