This excellent hospitable hotel is set in an upscale residential development on the Mississippi River. The rooms are spacious and very well furnished. There is a choice of eating spaces (3) and 2 bars, all nice, comfortable and welcoming though different and intimate in their own way. It is costly but to our experience comparatively good value. The food is... More

We stopped here for two nights early in February. (We were on a road trip and had a bit of luggage.) The site is quite pleasant, safe, away from the city, and our room had a view of the river. We took a walk after dark. The staff was helpful, informative, and accommodating. Our room, admittedly one of the smaller... More

The Inn is wonderful and lovely. But the amazing discovery this trip with a first rate breakfast was the croissant. Buttery, crisp, made in house and perfect. You will not find a more perfect one outside of Paris. Simply amazing....and free.

Upsides: elegant property, impeccable service. Three restaurants, all good, the only quibble being that some of the menu items at Penelope's are not good value --- an $11 crab cake the size of a silver dollar being the most egregious example. Downsides: you have to drive everywhere, and a REALLY IRRITATING $9 per day "hotel service fee". Seriously, at this... More

My wife and I recently stayed here February 9-12 for a One-tank get-away and could not have been more pleased with our overall stay. PROS: Area surrounding this "boutique-style" hotel was very safe, and inviting. It sits on both sides of a small "street" in front of (attached to??) apartments/condos and you are permitted to use the attached public gym... More

Quite simply this is probably the best hotel I've stayed in. Wonderful staff who welcomed us with a glass of champagne on arrival. The bed was comfortable and the room had a lovely view overlooking the Mississippi river. The river terrace restaurant was really good with excellent service and delicious cocktails. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Free wifi which was great when I needed to facetime back to England. Our room was very clean lots of freebies in the room too. It's about 20 minutes walk to the famous Beale Street from the hotel....

A fantastic place to spend a night or several nights. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Combined with the the contigious Pauletts Restuarant it is perfect escape for couples. The Veranda Bar 4th floor is a great place to watch the sunset over the Mississippi River and enjoy well made cocktails. The food served at Pauletts has never... More

We had the pleasure of staying at River Inn on a business trip and it was wonderful. We come to Memphis often and there's no place we'd rather stay now. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful, staff is delightful and knowledgable and make you feel so welcome. You get port and truffles at turndown ... how nice is that. Lovely... More
