“Just the right place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Just finished up a Friday to Monday stay. Hotel was in a perfect location. Just a couple blocks to Beale St. for the crazy nightlife, as well as Gibson and Rock an Soul, and across the street from The Peabody to view the ducks, take in some nice shops or an evening carriage ride. We did drive to Sun Studios (this was awesome), Graceland (a must see), Lorraine Motel (rich in history) and a drive through Elmwood Cemetery (interesting). The hotel elevators were just fine, noise level normal (remember you are in the city!), breakfast was just right (used the $20 voucher... But it will cost you a little more to cover the buffet for two but can pretty much cover breakfast off the menu). All in all... It was just the right place!

hotel was clean, staff were very helpful and friendly
rooms were adequate, bathroom very small and could do with some TLC
Breakfast and bar prices were fairly good
Not a great view from our room and poor lifts always stopping and alarm going off

Room Tip: Ask for front facing!!! and not next to an ice making machine!!!!

On very short notice I called the hotel and spoke with the Sales Manager, Jodi Ball requesting some help with surprising my sister-in-law for her 50th birthday. Her and my brother, visiting from England, were in Memphis with Titan Tours and I wanted it to be special. Not only did she make suggestions but was also more than happy to orchestrate picking up and setting up my surprise in their room. My sister-in- law was thrilled and I am so appreciative of all her help. I also had to make several calls to the hotel to reach her in person (not knowing what time they would be back in their room) and each and every time the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Thank you so much! I will definitely be a guest here when I get to visit Memphis!

Stayed here for a long weekend in the middle of a business trip. Good quality rooms, better than average breakfast for an American hotel and a good safe central location opposite the Peabody Hotel. Bar and restaurant only adequate but with Beale Street only a few blocks away why would you eat or drink in?

We didn't have a reservation for a hotel in Memphis, but wanted somewhere close to the center as we were told it was best (safest) to stay in the more tourist areas. The price for the room (sunday and monday nights) cost over $300, which was the most expensive hotel on our trip, and although the rooms were nice, it was probably also the least value for money. Breakfast and parking were not included, although both available. The bar did serve nice food, and there was complimentary juice, coffee, biscuits and muffins in the lobby throughout the day. Definitely recommend this city though!

Thank you for a lovely stay. Walking distance to Beale Street and Sun Studios. Rooms are a little tired, but clean and tidy. But no laundry (self service)! Really need to fix that! Thankfully, the staff offered to drive us to a laudrette and collect us afterwards - which was beyond the call and we were so grateful. So a BIG thanks for that :)
The restaurant below for breakfast was awesome and had lovely staff, however, we dined at the restaurant for dinner....only to be the seen as a "hassle/problem" - as the young girl behind the bar wanted to socialize with her friends. Not impressed. Hope to see you again.
