I say this advisedly, the location of this hotel on Mud Island being separated from downtown Memphis by the Wolf River. Downtown Memphis is most definitely not memorable or pretty ! Many strange characters, seedy bits, etc. Strangely, you go over the bridge to Mud Island, a fairly scale community, and you enter a different world. The River Inn is very high spec, rooms were superbly furnished, and has 2 very nice restaurants on site, one formal and one more relaxed. For the price there is nowhere else to stay in Memphis - it puts the Peabody in the shade. Lovely walks along the Mississippi and, if you can stand the heat, you can stroll down to Riverwalk where there's an intriguing white elephant model of the entire Mississippi River complete with water flows and quite interesting graphic descriptions. Only problem is there was no-one there......despite what must have been a huge construction bill.
Would definitely stay again but unlikely to return to Memphis.
