“Dated, but perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed 2 nights in the Residence Inn at the beginning of a 2-week driving trip. The location was perfect and the rooms were large, more than ample for a family of five. The 2-bedroom suite with kitchen was ideal for the group. The decor was a bit grungy and dated, but they were in the process of updating the decor, and hadn't gotten to our floor yet. The staff were super-friendly and helpful and the breakfast was simple, but adequate. The central location was an ideal kick-off spot for walking the city (or taking the trolley). We would definitely stay here in the future.

This hotel was located in a perfect location to downtown Memphis where we could walk to all the restaurants, bars and music halls. It is located in a historic Memphis building which is an extra perk. Makes you feel almost like you arent in a hotel but staying in a historic bed and breakfast. The hotel manager is very very helpful. He helped us locate some great local tourist spots and find discounts. The suites were perfect for our stay and since I am a Platinum member was upgraded apropriately.

Overall we thought the hotel was great - very friendly staff, great location, nice renovations. The only 2 things that were important to us which prevented a 5 star rating were 1) The wifi was spotty - depending on where in the room you were it would connect or not. A party of 4 with multiple devices requiring wifi this became a big issue. 2) The "queen" size beds as defined by Marriott management (according to operations manager) are really full size beds. 2 adults in these beds is quite tight and not very comfortable.

Other than that we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely consider returning.

Room Tip: If wifi is important get a room closer to the elevators since it appeared the signal was stronger th...

You will see lots of people stating that this hotel has a fantastic location situated within walking distance of the downtown area. This is absolutely true. In fact, as far as location goes, this hotel takes the cake. The hotel's historic past also adds to the charm of this location. The breakfast was well presented and the food was hot and tasty. The front desk staff were helpful and professional. The valet does get backed up from time to time but they were hustling to make sure that guests were receiving their cars in a timely fashion. The room we had was huge and architecturally interesting. We had a sweeping view of the river. The only complaint was that the room was constantly damp. I also suspect that there was mold because my allergies were going off like crazy. Overall, this hotel was a solid choice. The location and overall condition of the hotel were great, but the room could have used a little work.

Room Tip: Call the valet AT LEAST 15 minutes before you want to leave in order to ensure that your car is wait...

This was our fourth stay at The Residence--a chain hotel with a boutique feel. It is definitely time for a remodel, but they are currently in the process of doing so (and the design photos show that it will be just as tasteful and in keeping with the historic building as the current design). As well, the need for a remodel, brought the cost of our room down to a very reasonable $150. Main Street continues to develop and this really is a nice area for your Memphis stay...right on Main Street and the trolley route. It is within short walking distance of Beale, Mud Island, and many wonderful restaurants. It can be rocking loud on Beale or at the nearby Stadium, but it is always quiet in the hotel--perfect. The complimentary breakfast continues to be a nice inclusion in the cost--hot and cold selections--to be eaten in their commons area or taken to your room. The studio room is a great compromise--the queen size bed is tucked into an upper level loft with the bathroom, while the living, dining and kitchenette are at a slightly lower level. The sofa is a sleeper, which can come in handy if you have children or a visitor. The view from the roof top is nice--it does not have the restaurant or bar features that some of the surrounding hotels have (the Madison, the Peabody), but if you wanted that, you would have paid $200 more and stayed at one of those hotels. If you want something a little more quiet, you can enjoy your glass of wine here, watch the sunset over the Mississippi, listen to the music from the other places (but still be able to have a conversation)--you can always visit the Madison and have a drink on their roof and get the best sunset view, if you prefer. The staff at the Residence are very friendly. I love it here. We have been several times and I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Rooms that are higher up have better views.

This hotel is a decent choice for those wanting to explore downtown Memphis. Guests can easily walk to Beale Street, the Civil Rights Museum, or the riverfront. Those not wanting to walk have easy access to the trolley.

Staff members at the hotel were cheerful and helpful. Our only complaint would be a problem with the air conditioning in the room. First of all, it was very loud, somewhat disturbing our sleep. Second of all, the carpet was slightly damp near the bedroom closet; from the stain on the ceiling we deduced that the unit above us had been leaking. This could explain the slightly musty smell.

Again, the location and staff were great. The room was okay.

Hard to write an objective review. My daughter is a platinum Marriott Rewards member and got us upgraded--to a top floor suite with direct access to the rooftop deck (currently under renovation but quite usable with BBQs and patio furniture; nice view of city and Mississippi River). So judging the rooms is difficult. I will say the room, as well as the public areas, were always clean and well taken care of. Judging everything else I can do. The staff was unbelievably super-friendly. Always a warm greeting and ready to engage in conversation. The free breakfast was one of the most comprehensive I've ever seen. Everything hot and cold was well prepared. Even good coffee and I am a coffee snob. In a wonderful location downtown, easily walkable to Beale St., the Peabody (don't miss the duck walk) and the Redbird's ballpark. In fact, we could see the large screen scoreboard from our room.
