We were in Memphis to drop our son off at the University for Freshman year. The location was perfect and the pictures we saw were great, however upon checking in and seeing the room, I have to say I expected more. The size of the room was impressive but the look and level of cleanliness was not. The dirt coming... More

The hotel is directly across the street from the campus and is conveniently located near several places to eat (all within a 3-5 minute driving distance). The hotel does have a restaurant however I never visited it as it was my first time to Memphis and I wanted to sample several of the local establishments. The hotel bar is nice... More

First time at this hotel... $4 uber ride to the concert. Clean rooms, unusual layout, looks like a campus remodel. Breakfast was very good. Might be a difficult hotel for handicapped travelers staying on upper floors- it's a lengthy walk from elevator to the rooms (imagine Embassy suites layout on steroids) That's not a complain, just an observation for those...

This hotel needs a pool. It is too hot in Memphis not to have one. The University of Memphis pool is very nice but it is a little bit of a distance. Hotel staff told us they would have towels. Not true. Charity who works in the restaurant is very nice and professional. The food itself is below average The... More

Stayed here while taking a class at the university for a few days. It's your typical Holiday Inn. Staff are nice, the room I was in was large with a separate sitting area from the bedroom. Which had a microwave, coffee maker and fridge. The reason I gave it a three is due to cob webs in the corners of... More

I had an unexpected short trip to Memphis. All the downtown hotels were booked so I thought I'd stay here. It's a beautiful hotel located on campus. My room was very clean, large and comfortable.

We have stayed at this hotel about three times in the last year or so. The first two times our stay was very pleasant. However, not this time around.

Had a quick overnight in Memphis and had a late check-in. Restaurant was closed, but pizza delivery and a nice spacious room made it all better!

Super location--very easy access to the university as it is right across the street. Good parking and the shuttle was a bonus! Front desk staff had good directions to restaurants and buildings on the campus. The 2 room suite was superb--we had been on the road for business and it was nice to have a living room + separate bedroom.... More
