I thought staying on the first floor might be nosey but for the 3 nights I stayed I heard nothing from my room :). The... More

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. First, we booked a room with a king bed and sofa bed. There were no sheets or blankets in the room for the sofa bed. I went down to the front... More

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! I didn't know that this hotel was also a memorabilia museum to the Holiday Inn founder - so that was a nice surprise and a nice exhibit- I think on the 2nd or 3rd... More

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

When we arrived in Memphis, the complimentary hotel shuttle was delayed and then never arrived but the hotel paid for our taxi to the hotel. Whitney at the front desk was amazing and extremely helpful. After travelling America for 6 weeks, we never experienced this level of service anywhere else. This extended to the restaurant where Cameron, our server, was... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were incredibly spacious, clean and comfortable. Staying here made being on the road 4-5 days a week pleasurable. It's located right on the Univ of Memphis campus and was a mere $10 Uber ride to Beale Street, and a 15-20 min drive to Graceland.
