My wife and I were in our daughter's pediatrician's office about a week prior to our scheduled trip to Memphis, when we came across a magazine article featuring Talbot Heirs. We already had reservations at a hotel because we hadn't been able to find anything like this. Since we rarely stay in conventional hotels, it was a no brainer to cancel our reservations and book a room here.
From the first time I spoke with Sandy on the phone until the minute we checked out, we were treated with pure Southern hospitality at it's finest. All of the positive things that others have said are confirmed with me. After a couple of days, Tom and Sandy left us in the care of Jerry - who is equally as hospitable and helpful. He was essentially our concierge, giving us great tips and advice on things to see and do. He even allowed us to use the washer and dryer. Anyone who has a one year old can appreciate the importance of that.
Our room was great; it had everything we needed for our stay. The fact that it was restocked with milk, orange juice, cookies, granola bars, biscotti's coffee and creamer every day was a great bonus. You might laugh, but they also have good quality toilet paper, not the rough & tough stuff that tears and dissolves on you. The bed was a little creaky, but comfortable. The hot water is HOT, so be careful. The only inconvenience we encountered was the stairs. There is no elevator and no downstairs lobby so we had to keep carrying the stroller up and down each time we came or went.
Overall, I highly recommend Talbot Heirs to anyone that is visiting Memphis. The location is convenient and within easy walking distance to many of the downtown restaurants and attractions and Beale St. is only two blocks away.
Thank you Tom, Sandy and Jerry for providing us with a home away from home!
