“Wonderfully classy hotel.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Enjoyed our short stay at this hotel. The ambiance was wonderful as was the service. At the adjoining Little Bar, Marcell, the bartender was very attentive and kind. Enjoyed sitting here while listening to the great pianist.

Will definitely return and recommend to friends and family!

Spent one night here on a short business trip. Beautiful location, extremely clean bedroom and bathroom. The rooms are on the smallish side but had a wonderful bed, great view of the River and located in a lovely neighborhood. Was offered champagne or wine upon arrival
Evening turndown service included a glass of port and chocolates. Although I am not a breakfast eater, the included breakfast offered an extensive and beautiful menu served in the restaurant at the inn. The bonus of coffee service rely in the morning delivered to your floor was just wonderful.
I will never return to the Peabody when in town again.

My husband and I wanted to get out of town for a night and as I always do, I checked my TripAdvisor app. River Inn of Harbor Town was highly rated. I've lived in the Mississippi Delta my entire life and visit Memphis often, but was unaware of the River Inn or Harbor Town in general. Our stay was very comfortable, relaxing and I can't wait to return. The staff greeted us promptly and was very helpful with all our question. The room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. We loved how quaint the rooms were and the atmosphere was very invited. We will return.

I have stayed in many wonderful hotels in many exciting countries yet this is the first time that I have felt compelled to write a review. This property is an oasis in every way. The staff are outstanding; welcoming, warm, genuine. The room are luxurious yet comfortable. The extra touches make you feel truly at home; morning coffee in the library, a nightcap at turntown. It's so true what they say; the small gestures are the most memorable, although none more so than the bedroom view of sunset over the Mississippi; breathtaking.

Very nice property, mostly outstanding staff. Rooftop bar was great, as was the restaurant. Service at breakfast was outstanding and both breakfast and dinner menus were very nice. The one thing the killed me was the noise level in the room. Both nights heard neighbors television and talking as well as a very heavy stepping upstairs resident. big disappointment in an otherwise top notch property.

Room Tip: based on our experience, try to get a room on the top floor. if yu can avoid the rooms adjacent to...

This is our second trip to Memphis to stay at the River Inn and would highly recommend to anyone. We drive 8 hrs for this incredible stay and their food. At check in you are greeted with wine/champagne from friendly staff. The rooms with the Mississippi River view are the best. Beautiful decor, very cozy bed linens and pillows. In the morning you have fresh coffee waiting for you on your floor. Everything is exceptional. My husband and I recommend Tug's for dinner which is attached to the hotel. If you love gumbo you'll love their seafood gumbo, voted Memphis's best! Their chili is great too! For your complimentary breakfast you'll be greeted at Paulette's, also attached to the hotel, by Patrick who will offer you the best service and food imaginable. Try the eggs Benedict or the French toast with cinnamon butter. We will definitely be
back next year to enjoy the Mud Island area of Memphis again!
