We had out of town guests so we took them to the River Inn for an evening out. We both got rooms facing the river and what a view. Both rooms were nice but we took a junior suite which was larger with a larger bath too and we were very happy. It was quiet, the restaurant is perfect and...

Decided to try this hotel on an overnight to Memphis. Loved it here! Very romantic. Go to Paulette's to eat, and had to the rooftop bar to have a drink. Great view of the river. We had wine upon checking in, and we had chocolates and brandy at turn down service. Also, coffee was on the landing in the morning....

I have stayed at this lovely hotel several times. Generally, we go into town for dinner but decided to try the upstairs bar/restaurant. The view was spectacular, the food and service were impeccable. The front desk staff outstanding as always. And, well the breakfast at Paulina's is always a trip. Looking forward to my next visit.

All good! Thank you Melvin, Stacey and Patrick at the front desk and entire staff. The waiters in the restaurant are so good in Paulette's. We have repeated this visit on weekends many times. Nice workout facility down the street and free for guests.

The hotel is beautiful and well kept. The view from the room was gorgeous. Clean room and the turn down service at night is a nice touch. Great breakfast in the morning! Easy to get to everything. $6 Uber ride to downtown. Our bathroom had a pretty sizable leak, but it was a nice size. Our friends had no hot...

This is a small hotel that is perfect for a romantic getaway which is why we visited. Excellent service. Complimentary wine/bubbly upon check in and also port and chocolates at turn down. These small touches go a long way in making your stay extremely enjoyable. With the Terrace bar and the romantic Paulette's Restaurant attached to the hotel you really...
