      The location was great it is within an easy walk to Beale St, the tram and other tourist highlights. The staff are friendly helpful and informative, the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I felt safe and car parking garage was easy to get too

      There was no fridge in the room

    • Older travelers

      It is a nice hotel with good location.

      Price is a little high but it is better than some others in the area

      The location was good, walking distance from Beale St and other downtown sites.

      There was a very noisy ice machine in the hallway. Service was slow (eg more than a day to get some coffee pads that worked with the coffee maker in the room).

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Help staff, very clean, nice comfy beds, location location location, juice/ coffee and cookies/ donuts in lobby nice touch and the lobby attendant is wonderful

      Parking garage needs more spaces to accomidate guests or limit cars to 1 per room, charging for parking as a guest is a bit crude

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Close to Beasle Street, walking distance

      Parking elevators extremely slow..parking spaces were very tight...it took many tries to geet out of space

      walking distance to Beal St.

      older rooms very slightly shabby.

      The hotel staff were friendly and, for those who have travelled to Memphis to visit sights such as Beale Street and Sun Studio's it is in an excellent location. There is a great bar 'The Flying Saucer' just a few minutes walk away which serves beers from all over the world and The Peabody Ducks (check this out on You Tube for details) are worth a few minutes of your time as the hotel is directly opposite.

      The hotel decor is incredibly tired. The wallpaper and carpets in the common areas are throwbacks to the 1980'S. Access to the hotel from the car parking is via the service lift which is far from ideal. As regards the elevators generally these are incredibly slow, one simply stopped on the ninth floor and set off an alarm on two occasions during a three night stay (we were on the 14th floor) which did not inspire confidence. Signs in the lobby during our stay proclaimed that the lifts were being modernised, however, there was no evidence of any activity towards this whilst we were staying there (which included a weekday). Of some concern to us was the fact that when we returned to our room of the Friday evening (having been out from early morning), the door was not actually locked (although we had specifically checked that it had been when we left it). Fortunately, all of our possessions were fine (including, in may case a laptop). When I reported this at the desk I was told that 'housekeeping must not have pulled the door too after the room had been service'. To be fair the desk clerk did then report the matter to housekeeping and there was no reoccurrence of the problem during the remainder of out stay. A word too about the 'pool'. This is an outside pool which is accessed through a door on the 4th floor. Apart from it being a popular haunt for smokers who avail themselves of the tables and loungers around its edges, visitors should also be aware that, although towels are provided there are no changing facilities, something which necessiated my tavelling down in the elevator from my 14th floor room in a dressing gown when I wanted to swim - not ideal in from of other guests at 4.30pm in the the afternoon. However, this seems to be a fairly common state of affairs. At the Holiday Inn in Harrisonburgh the situation was the same and at the Best Western in Baltimore, the 'changing room' was the gents toilet!

      I've stayed in cheaper hotels that had better amenities in the room & supplied a hot breakfast. Won't be back!

      Great location and confort for the money. You need to keep upgrading this property because of it's age. People were just fine!

    • Older travelers

      Close to Beale street.

      For what I had to pay for parking I could have stayed across the street at the peabody. The elevator to the parking garage is very confusing. Otherwise it was a nice place.

      The location, staff was very helpful and love the restaurant.

      It was located close to the sites of that area.

      Location and it was very quiet, even in the middle of downtown. Great place to get away from the city crowd.
