“Good location and nice room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

We spent two nights here. The hotel is just two blocks from Beale Street, so it's just a short walk. We had a nice room on the 11th floor - the bathroom roof showes some signes of needing renovation, but except that the room is perfectly OK. The air condition worked well and didn't make too much noise. The fitness room on the 4th floor was small but well equipped, and the outdoor pool is nice when it's warm. The parking was $12 which is not bad.

The location of the hotel is great! Did not have any problem with night noise, although, the city was tearing up the intersection of Union and 2nd during the day. As mentioned in other posts, the beds are very comfy and the bathrooms are small. Had a couple of service issues: asked for a wake up call which never was made, luckily I was up anyway. Our room keys stopped working mid way through our stay which made it a pain to get in to the parking garage. We did not know the key was the culprit (thought it was the reader in the garage) so we got caught in the stairwell and could not access our floor. Maid service was very good though and rooms were clean. All in all with the minor glitches a very economical hotel with a great location.

We used our points for a night stay so we could check out Beale Street. The hotel was less than a 5 minute walk to Beale Street. The room was great - the bed comfy. The bathroom was small but it was doable. We did hear some noise from the street but hay it was a Saturday night and everyone was having a great time.

Priority Platinum receives a $20/day breakfast coupon. This perquisite is great when travelling as a couple because two can easily for this price. The location is across the street from the Peabody which puts you in the heart of Memphis downtown night-life. They have self-parking for $12/day. Coffee and doughnut holes are put out for free in the morning. All considered, a good deal.

The hotel was very easy to find. It was a 5 minute or less walk to everything we wanted to do near Beale street in Memphis. Rendezous is in the alley next to it,the ball park is across the street, Beale street was a very safe 5 minute at the most walk. The staff was just ok, not over the top friendly or anything. The elevators are super slow! Rooms are on the smaller side but they are fine for a night or two stay. The bathroom on the other hand was very small and needed some work. The bed was big and comfy.The tv was flat screen and a nice size. If the price was right we would stay here again because of location.

Room Tip: The covered parking garage was only $12 for 24 hours.

This Hotel really is in the middle of where you want to be to see the best of Memphis. We visited in October 2011 and had arrived by car. We found the Hotel easy to find even though it's in the heart of the City. Underground parking for Guests is available but is charged at about $15 per day, so watch that one.
The Hotel is kind of a `no frills' place but it is adequate, tidy and clean. We found the room rather small, but that wasn't the end of the world. The room was fairly quiet and more than anything else, was in walking distance to the main night life which was great... meant we didn't have to drive or get taxis every evening for a good night out.
The Peabody Hotel is opposite and worth a visit to see the ducks in the lobby! And there are plenty of trams that go all over the city which can be caught quite easily near the Hotel.
Sun Studios and a few other attractions in the City can all be seen on foot or by catching trams. Really easy to get around. The only thing we had to get in the car for was Graceland which is about a 15 - 20 min easy drive and well worth visiting.
The Sports bar/cafe in the Hotel was excellent quality. There are plenty of good eating places nearby aswell. Overall, we had a lovely trip. Good fun.
