We arrived to be greeted in a very welcoming way. Complimentary champagne was also a bonus. Then to be told that we had been upgraded to the penthouse was the icing on the cherry. Throughout our stay we felt welcome and valued. Suite was fantastic. Maid service exemplary. Location great but it's not in downtown Memphis. Would absolutely recommend for... More

We stayed at the River Inn because of all of the great reviews. They were correct, the service and atmosphere is tremendous. The little touches are what separates this hotel from others, wine at check-in, port and chocolate in the evening etc. The lounge on the top floor is a great place to enjoy an afternoon escape, and the breakfast...

I can't fault this hotel, the staff are brilliant and its position on the river is excellent. The rooms are a little smaller than some we have stayed at, but the are spotless and very well equipped. The breakfasts are lovely, the best we have experienced in a long time, and the choice is fantastic. There are restaurants very close... More

We had a gorgeous suite on the 4th floor with a view of the river. The location is tranquil and pretty yet it's less than a $10 cab ride from Beale St. Our four poster bed was super comfortable, there was complimentary water (both sparkling and still) and, best of all, the port and chocolates at turndown - yum! The... More

This is a great hotel, you are made welcome from the moment you walk in. It's easy to park and it's free!! Our room was lovely although a little bit noisy as it was above the bar, but the noise was not a problem. A lovely girl came round with a small glass of port to our room early evening,... More

I can't wait to go back here! In the beautiful Harbor Town area, this is nicely tucked away from the hustle/bustle of the city while remaining just a few minutes away from downtown. The hotel is exemplary--guests are met at the door with champagne, the rooms are lovely, and turndown involves port and truffles. All that and a fabulous view... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. We were pampered with wine and a very accommodating staff at check-in. The rooms were elegantly appointed and immaculately clean. The area around the hotel was quiet and peaceful. We had amazing views of the Mississippi River. Breakfast in the AM was always delicious. Close enough to downtown activities, but far... More

The hotel is rated by some as the best in Memphis, so I decided to splurge. And it did really well given the space and area restrictions, which is to say, it partners with an off-site exercise facility, directs one to a nice massage place down the street, has no pool, and there are very limited dining options in the...

Hotel only minutes away from from Beale Street $5 taxi ride which was very convenient. Breakfast was very good and served by great staff. Overall great experience good value, great hotel and... More

Perfect place to stay when traveling to Memphis. I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Everything was first rate, starting with the glass of wine at check in, the beautiful views, the amazing breakfast...did I mention truffles and port in your room every night?!? So close to downtown, but you feel transported far away. I'm already trying to figure out... More
