We booked 3 nights here as some reviews said it was close to the downtown area Well, it is a hike to downtown and we found out after first night that you can find parking in Memphis later in day without having to feed the meters. This is a really nice hotel, front staff and household help were so helpful... More

Upon checking into the hotel the staff was nice and helpful. Our room was clean and roomy. Breakfast was good and staff at breakfast was kind and helpful too. The beds were awesome and comfortable. The driveway to the parking lot was a bit narrow but not a problem unless someone pulled in at the door and blocked the entrance... More

Not being familiar with midtown Memphis I trusted Tripadvisor and made a 5 day reservation at the BW GenX for orientation at University of TN HSC. I was not disappointed!!! The hotel was super clean, the continental breakfast was very good with fruit, boiled eggs, waffles, etc... and the staff was excellent!!!. The hotel parking is surrounded by a tall... More

Chose to stay here during a long trip based on the reviews. It was exactly what I expected from a Best Western. It looks like the hotel has been updated recently. We got there much earlier than expected and we had no problem with an early check-in. Location is great as it was less than 10 minutes from all the... More

Have used this hotel MANY times, specially during events and have never had issues. They can get transportation quickly if needed and the rooms are always very clean and the staff is super nice. This is my favorite hotel to use when going downtown because it is close enough to enjoy, but just far enough to not have to hear... More

We arrived later than expected but found staff very helpful. We were able to store bikes inside, get dinner ideas and directions to location. Although this plant is somewhat dated the staff more than made up for any short comings Breakfast was very good and attendant was there to help as needed. checkout was also a breeze. We will be...

Hotel located just a few blocks from downtown medical district. The neighborhood is not the prettiest I have been in, but seemed calm enough. The facility is very clean, the rooms are a good size, and everything worked - pleasantly surprising. Beds are comfortable. The only thing I would ding is the unevenness of the desk staff - some were... More

When we checked in the lady was very short with me and seemed irritated by my presence. The elevator looked really old but the room itself was pretty nice. The location is quite good and parking was safe and plentiful.

I choose this hotel because it was close to the Memphis Zoo. (Our destination for a panda viewing.) The front desk staff were very helpful with directions to the zoo and to restaurants. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Beds were very comfortable but sat high up off of the floor. On the other hand, the commode in the... More

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Memphis, but is very well situated, and the parking area is protected with iron fencing. The inside of the hotel is well appointed, and the quality of the rooms is high. Our room had a refrigerator, the bed very comfortable, and we wanted for nothing.
