I can’t say enough good things about Talbot Heirs. This is undoubtedly the best hotel/guesthouse at which I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying. The location can’t be beat; it’s in the heart of Memphis and within walking distance to anything you need downtown. The inn consists of just eight rooms which were formally studio apartments, and the owners, who live on site, will even shop for your groceries and stock your kitchen before you arrive if you provide them with a list. (Included with the room were bottled water, orange juice, coffee, biscotti, oatmeal, milk and cereal for two people. Whatever you use will be replaced the next day at no additional cost.) Each room is cozy, unique, and beautifully decorated (we stayed in room 8 and loved it).
The best thing about this place is the genuine pride, care, and service that the owners, Tom and Sandy, exhibit. You won’t find this level of service anywhere, not even at the (much more expensive) Peabody across the street. Upon our arrival, Tom was waiting outside for us and actually got into the car to show us to the parking garage. He carried our luggage to the room, showed us around, and then spent a good 10 minutes talking to us about our plans and providing recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Every time we saw him throughout the weekend, he’d stop and make conversation and ask us how things were going.
At only $20 more than the Holiday Inn on the next block, and almost $100 cheaper than the Peabody across the street, this is absolutely the best place to stay in Memphis. Charming, quirky, comfortable (oh, how I miss that bed!), affordable, and a wonderful experience. It really says a lot about a hotel when it becomes a major highlight of your trip. If we’re ever in Memphis again, I know where we’ll be staying.
