Crowne Plaza Memphis Downtown Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Crowne plaza hotel was very comfortable, even though the bed was a little too firm. But my overall stay was quiet time, pleasant view at night, breakfast was great. I was disappointed in no microwave and the expense of items in lobby area ( ex water was way too expensive) Some of the staff members were a bit arrogant which came off a little rude. Parking space was limited and no enough of .

Smooth check in, very friendly staff, great location. I plan to stay here when I return to Memphis!

The shuttle driver was very nice and helpful. Staff was very friendly and helpful Room was great

I stayed there during the snow/ice storm they had and I must say they were great at making sure that I had everything I needed and did it w/a smile. They had a shuttle which took me to places downtown during the storm and Kenneth was great at making sure he drove safely. Michael at the bar can his "own" drink and its tasty too!! Ask him to try it out! Brittany and Cynthia helped me with checking in and out and in again as the storm delayed my activities. The staff for in the restaurant was great too!

While the lobby and general condition of everything was very clean there were a few things that just seemed to make the hotel feel in a little disrepair. The air unit in the room is not a “central air” type and it just never shut off. It would constantly blow air, first the warm air and then blast cold air trying to maintain the temp in the room?? It was noisy, constantly blowing and getting that cold air blast was not fun. also there were some smaller things that added to it overall. The plug on the lamp did not work properly to charge the phone, the round lighted mirror in the bathroom was falling off the wall and was unusable, the light in the bathroom ceiling was coming out of the wall. Neither of us slept well and we are glad we were only there for one night.

We enjoyed a long weekend in Memphis and were very pleased with our stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Overall a nice hotel. The staff were nice. It's almost faster to take the stairs as the elevator was very slow. There was always a line of people waiting to get on. Parking seems a little pricey for self parking.

Very nice hotel, one thing , they need to have more shuttle service available at night

Great hotel nice staff only fault just a little bit to far from the middle of the action

Thumbs up! This hotel was a great choice and close to everything we wanted to do.

Adequate for short overnight stay. Security for parking is not the best. Worried about our car all night.

Was in town for BMA's . We tried the Crown Plaza instead of the host hotel. Nice place, not bad food . Will be staying there next year.

Cloud Not Sleep the 1st night...We moved to rooms on the pool side...The pillow s were Terrible....while New...you put ur head on the pillow and would find your pillow Flat...no matter how many pillows​ you put under your head...Very uncomfortable

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. The beds were comfortable. I especially enjoyed the shuttle service to other parts of downtown Memphis. Thank you.

we walked to the Mud Island museum, Beale Street, and the National Civil Rights Museum. The parking lot was secure and breakfast was great.

The lobby area was very nice, and the bartender was nice and helpful. He made great recommendations on food and drinks. The room was pretty nice, and the housekeeper did a great job during our stay.

There was some confusion about valet parking. When I pulled up I told the young man I wanted valet and he told me to go up the ramp. We had to take a ticket and I have never seen this with valet. Sure enough it was self parking so my son parked his truck and they did valet with my vehicle. I got charged for two valet vehicles. Not a big deal but when you have driven 8 hours and you're tired it is

Room was a little on the smaller side. Lack of wall outlets

Our weekend was a great experience to Memphis! We did Graceland, (a MUST see), the civil rights museum,(very good), Beale St., Sun Studios, and more. Our hotel at the Crown was decent, bed was a little uncomfortable, but the staff was extremely nice and always helpful. The location to Beale St was perfect.

Hotel was very clean and staff was very generous and have great tips to my wife and I who hadn't been there ever. Highly recommended for it being close enough to Beale to walk but far enough for a peaceful sleep.
