River Inn of Harbor Town
Ranked #1 of 138 Hotels in Memphis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

I stayed there one night while in business trip. This was a great surprise for a boutique hotel.
The staff is very friendly, you are welcome at check in with a glass of champagne, get chocolates in your room, complimentary breakfast at Paulette's ( and what a great breakfast!), complimentary wifi, and a great lobby with a real fireplace!
Either on vacation or on business trip, it is to me the perfect place up stay in Memphis.
The big plus is the free access to the local fitness center a block away.
Cannot wait to come back to Memphis to enjoy that hotel and go to Paulette's restaurant again!

My husband and I were in Memphis for a musical at the Orpheum and stayed overnight at River Inn in Harbor Town. What a wonderful experience from start to finish! The staff was outstanding. The penthouse suite was warm, comfortable and inviting. Finally, the food experience(both evening meal and complementary breakfast) were delightful at Paulette's on the premises. They have a real gem in Patrick, the friendly, helpful waiter at Paulette's! We will definitely tell our friends to stay at River Inn when they are in Memphis for a memorable, charming experience!

Stayed 2nights on first visit to Memphis
Service was excellent especially at the front desk.
Room roomy and comfortable With Sherry and chocolates at 4pm each day
Great stay, the only downside was the location. Whilst good for views of Mississippi it was a little out of the centre.

Very nice, quiet, romantic getaway. Great for weekend relaxation. Everything you need is right there. It is like a little resort. Nice restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Romantic atmosphere, nice service, good food and wine, reasonably priced. Definitely will go back there. Nice location, safe, clean, friendly. Nice spa, good massage.

Was there for a conference. Patrick did a great job making sure we had technical supplies, food and beverages as well as his interest in helping whenever needed! Conference room was airy and overlooked the Mississippi River! Rooms were charming, comfortable beds, large closet and windows that opened onto flowered window boxes and interesting overlooks. Port and chocolate left at night in your room. What more says we care! Restaurants onsite-excellent food and service at all meals. Check in includes glass of red or white wine. Coffee on each floor. Wow!

We have stayed at River Inn of Harbor Town several times this year since discovering it based on a good friend's recommendation. You will enjoy the rooftop terrace which is ideal for group events. We were greeted with complimentary champagne in late afternoon and each time we have stayed in a different room or suite, all of them spacious, well-maintained, all of the amenities you would expect in a four star hotel, and, on the west side, you can enjoy a view of the Mississippi River lazily flowing by, a scene in late afternoon with a beautiful sunset in the background takes you back a century. General Manager Karl Friedrich and his excellent staff make each guest feel welcome, and the hotel overall has achieved the highest standards in our judgment, and we have been a few places. Paulette's Restaurant is the Inn's four-star restaurant that consistently earns its "Most Romantic" and "Best Continental" designation, clearly a Memphis favorite made even more memorable by our waitress, Donna, who knows the menus by heart and guided us to some delicious grouper and salmon dishes with lobster bisque, homemade raspberry sorbet ("they make it every three hours!") and a french crepe featuring locally grown plums (" grown on a nearly farm on Highway 51"). The cosy, welcoming atmosphere of the Inn and its superb restaurant and staff that aims to please at every turn will amaze you and keep you coming back. We have found our little escape!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with a river view - most have it.

I did not get a chance to write this review earlier due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, but it was important to me that I write it. I was in Memphis for a conference, and stayed at the River Inn over the last week of October. I enjoyed my stay there very much, and want to thank everyone there for making my stay so nice. This is a fantastic hotel and has a fantastic staff! Mr. Friedrich is an amazing manager - he is very hands-on, and takes care of things directly. He specially greets all his customers every morning, and he personally made sure my room was nice. Thanks for the champagne, Mr. Friedrich! My floor (2nd floor) was taken care of by the housekeeper Lisa and her assistant Dora - they were amazing, and very dedicated to their work! They were very funny too - I had such a nice conversation with them at the coffee nook on the second floor. I am very picky about the hotel rooms I stay in, and my room was absolutely perfect and spotless each day! Thanks, Lisa and Dora. I also want to thank Rachel and Sarah at the front desk - they were so knowledgeable and helpful. Rachel was very welcoming the day I checked in, and she has an amazing way of knowing what you need before you ask for it. She is very polite and you can tell she enjoys her job. Sarah was a gem on my last day there - I was making a presentation at a conference and she helped me print my slides and called me a cab all at the same time. And she did it all with a wonderful smile! Thank you so much Mr. Friedrich, Rachel, Sarah, Lisa and Dora - you are a dream team, and I will definitely be back at your hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room if available - this way, you can see the excellent park in front of the ho...
