This place definitely has the location going for it. It's no more than a 10-12 minute walk to any of the downtown attractions: Mud Island, Civil Rights Museum, Rock and Soul Museum, Gibson Factory, Beale Street, etc. Pretty much the only things you can't walk to are Graceland, the Stax museum, or the Pink Palace, however their parking garage allows unlimited in/out. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and some will even deliver to your room.
The hotel was undergoing renovations while I was there, but they weren't intrusive. The elevator from the garage was being renovated, but they did offer luggage assistance and transportation to the lobby if necessary. My room was recently renovated, with brand new furniture, and a fridge and microwave. There was also a brand new spacious shower (no tub, if you care about that sort of thing).
Like nearly all downtown hotels, breakfast is not included, but there's a coffee shop in the building, and plenty of options a short walk away. I stayed here midweek in the off-season, so it was a good value for the money. Based on reviews here, it seems like at certain times, it can cost in excess of $200, and I'd definitely consider that overpriced, even with the renovations, but otherwise it was fine.
