A perfect evening in Memphis

Located on the prestigious Harbor Town development, the River Inn is an oasis of civility in a the less-than-genteel environment that is Memphis's Central Business District. Perfect location, set apart yet with good proximity to the downtown; convenient access to highways I 55 and I 40, facilitating our travels to a business meeting in West Memphis. Warm greeting by front desk staff, respectful service from turn-down staff. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a suite with spectacular river view. Comfy queen bed, wonderful large oval tub for a soaking bath, and ample room to set up laptop to work. Highly recommend the bar at Paulette's restaurant, and enjoyed a good--though not great--dinner there as well. Breakfast at Paulette's included in room rate was a great bonus-- a proper restaurant breakfast with fresh local ingredients. Croissants, muffins and pop-overs fresh baked and excellent. With a flute of champagne on arrival and a ruby port. at bedtime offered, what's not to like? We look forward to returning for a pleasure trip, when we can take ample advantage of the lovely river front park just beyond the hotel's doors.

Phenomenal hotel!

In Memphis for a quick overnight business trip - stayed at this hotel after researching better places to stay in Memphis and it was well worth the extra time it took to get to the airport! Greeted on arrival by extremely friendly, accommodating staff who handed me a glass of wine of my choosing. The room was impeccably decorated in a "Modern Southern" motif, emphasizing the progressive character of the hotel and I enjoyed a view of the Mississippi River. Very comfortable bed and spacious bathroom with top-tier supplies. The hotel bar was very nice and upscale. Being in town only very briefly I was unable to explore the area immediately around the hotel and am unsure as to the proximity to Beale Street, etc. which is the reason for the "4/5" rating on location. The area around the hotel appeared to be an upscale area with many shops and restaurants overlooking a "boardwalk" along the Mississippi. If this hotel is located near Beale Street and other Memphis treasures I would definitely have given it a 5/5 for location. Overall, an impeccable hotel.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you have an early flight out of Memphis (e.g. 6am to Chicago, as mine was) you DO NOT need to get to the airport 2 hours ahead of time; the TSA doesn't even open the checkpoint until 4:30am. Arrive at 5am and you will still have plenty of time to get some coffee.
