Recent guest reviews

Stayed here on business with out getting rental car. Hotel was in walking distance of Beale st and restaurants. Offer free pick up & drop off shuttle within 5 mi radius of hotel was useful (none to/from airport unfortunately ). Overall staff service and room was good.

The room would never cool down It was very uncomfortable.

Very loud, and did not care for inability to access my vehicle. Homeless people all over and never felt safe.

No inside parking without mandatory 22$ valet! While bldg is old rooms were current decor. 4th flr has balcony but the bathroom shower wouldnt accom a tall person..the ceiling is very low No microwave or refrigerator either Bar food was good and we had a great lady running things that night! Price..not a good value

I was attending a business conference at the Peabody Hotel and this was the one of the overflow hotels. Convenient, across the street from the Peabody and walking distance to downtown attractions. Rooms were clean and staff friendly.

Close to all the fun downtown. Room comfortable. The Keurig coffee machine was nice.

Great location to restaurants. Parking was expensive though.

Very nice place and close to Beale Street. The staff couldnt have been any better. I will stay here again.

The employees were great...from the front desk to the cleaning and everyone in between! We were there for 3 nights to celebrate a friends daughters 21st birthday.

It was okay!! Until the morning where there was an event outside where people were on microphones and there was a marching band with 15 drummers!!!!! People hollering at 6:30 am. I paid 200 dollars and was very unhappy!!!!!!

Great spot to stay for the Beale St Music fest, but the rates jump WAY up for Memphis in May. If i had it to do over again, I would just spend a little more and stay at the Peabody across the street for those prices.

I believe the place was being renovated so it might be nicer now. When I was there I was not impressed but the location is great and just a quick walk to beale street. I would stay again to see if it has been updated.

We walked everywhere. Staff was very helpful. Hotel was clean.

Stayed 3 nights, room were clean and staff was nice. Walls were very thin so we heard everything outside including the automated voice of the elevator and the ice machine. Staff at hotel stated there was no transport from the airport however there was a van waiting for pilots only.

We were greeted with big smiles and friendly staff. When we left, they gave us the same warm smiles. They were always asking if we needed any help and gave us great information. Great location for easy access to Beale St. and many great restaurants.

Ordered a king one bed room. Got a two bed queen. Parts of the room #855 were broken shower and towel hooks. Right next to ice machine and it sounded like someone was vacuuming all night right outside the door. Bell Boy did not help.Told me to make sure I put the cart outside the room next to elevator. No refrigerator or microwave Anyway, very expensive for what we got. It is close to Beale Street.

We arrived early since we wanted to beat the storm that was coming our way and the staff worked hard to get our room ready for us. the location was perfect for us. we were going to a concert at the fed ex center and wanted to visit beale street and both were just a few short blocks away. also rendezvous was right down the alley! perfect. the room itself was clean and the bed comfortable. my only complaint was no refrigerator. other than that perfect.

After staying in Nashville for a few days we headed over to Memphis for some more great American music. We arrived early at the hotel since the weather was going to get bad later that day. The staff was more than accommodating and hurried to get a room ready for us. The location of the hotel was perfect! We were right next door to Rendevouz (our favorite restaurant in Memphis), and also many other fine eating establishments. We were a few blocks from Beale Street and the FedEx Forum. We were able to walk to both locations. The room itself was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable which was great considering the night before was terrible in Nashville. My only complaint about the room was no refrigerator. The staff was very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. If we make it back to Memphis we would definitely stay there again.

Great location right in the heart of the city. Staff friendly and helpful. Convenient on site parking which is a little pricy. Self park round the corner for a third of the price. Right next to a great rib joint.

Perfect location to be able to see all the sights. 5 minute walk to Beale Street & to the tour operators. Room was on the main street & the occasional noise was not an issue
