We stayed at the Hampton Inn during Elvis week 2007. The reviews we received from Trip Advisor (who we really rely on to get the best locations) were spot on.
The location is great - close to Graceland, airport and downtown. We did not rent a car because we thought it would be too manic at this time of year with Elvis fans, but the #50 bus stops at the top of the road (on Poplar Ave) and goes straight through to the bus station in town. You can get a free transfer for the tram to take you along Main Street - and all for $1.50/person.
The hotel is lovely. Our room was big, clean and the beds were ultra comfy. The free breakfast was great - mixture of hot/cold food and free coffee 24/7 in the lobby.
The staff were more than accomodating and you were never without a greeting; but we found all of Memphis to be like this so it was no surprise.
When we checked out we went to the airport only for our flight to be cancelled to the next day. I phoned the Hampton (even though all other hotels were booked because of Elvis Week) and they came to pick us up in the shuttle and had a room ready for us! Thanks for sparing us a night in the airport!
I would truly recommend this hotel and when we go back to Memphis we will stay here again. I would recommend renting a car though. It looks quite easy to get around and there were lots of parking places in the downtown.
All in all a most memorable and enjoyable stay...even if Elvis did not make a come back.
