Great Memphis Hotel!

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: The area and friendliness of staff. Location along the banks of the Mississippi, affording great of views of the sunsets
Cons: A shuttle bus could transport guests to and from the Downtown area as Ok to walk to the $1 trolley bus in day but not too nice to return after dark.
Location: Situated in a modern complex along the banks of the Mississippi river. Stax, Sun, Civil rights museums, boat trip, Beale St and Gracelands.
My husband and myself stayed here for a week this September, after a week in Washington. Memphis is very laid back, a bit run down in places but full of musical history. The parkland opposite the hotel is lovely with many local families making use of it by picnicking, jogging and dog walking . Everyone was very friendly. The hotel has a restaurant/bar upstairs and out room wasnt very far from it (about 2 rooms along) but we didnt hear any sound at all coming from there. There are a lot of nice touches at the hotel: a small library area with 2 easy armchairs and an abundance of books on each floor, glass of bubbly on arrival and port (which we dont drink, but nice if you do indulge! ) and choc each evening: 2 bottles of water provided in room each day: pianist in the comfy lobby/lounge in evenings. The breakfast was in abundance and was included in with our price leaving us full and ready for a day exploring. The only downside was, as we didnt have a car, the walk to the $1 trolley buses was fine in the day but a bit worrying after dark as we needed to go over the bridge and didnt really feel safe doing this. When we went to the Pyramid we requested a taxi back to the hotel and had to wait 45 mins with 3 people attempting to call one for us (from the Pyramid, not the hotel). There was a similar wait from the Stax museum so taxis seem to be a bit on the slow side! A shuttle bus from the hotel to/from Downtown or the trolley buses would alleviate this problem.

The Best of Memphis for lodging and food

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: The ambiance, amenities, convenient dining at Paulette's.
Cons: Housekeeping or maintenance keep noise down in hallway in morning hours.
Location: Located in Harbortown area of Memphis, TN, overlooking the Mississippi River. Downtown Memphis close by : Orpheum Theater, Redbirds Park, FedEx Forum
The River Inn afforded my husband and me with one of the most pleasant B and B experiences we have ever had. The room had every amenity, and the food at Paulette's, under the same roof, is worth making a trip to Memphis in itself. The drive about Harbortown was entertainment enough after dining at Paulette's. Downtown Memphis is only blocks away.

River Inn at Harbor Town-Memphis, TN

Posted Aug 22, 2016
Pros: The room we stayed in was fabulous, and the breakfast they serve there was absolutely world-class
Cons: The dinner at the hotel was very good, but was overpriced for what they served us.
Location: You're only 2 miles from downtown, which is an easy 5 minute drive from the hotel.
River Inn is an excellent place to stay with a great location; the room we stayed in was excellent, and the staff was most attentive.

A safe place in the middle of downtown.

Harbor Town is a quaint little town all of its own and it is right next to all the excitement of the big city. A place to go and unwind after a busy day. Great places to choose from for lunch or dinner.

Mainly came to Memphis to visit Graceland I was born on 1/8/1935 (same as Elvis) and wanted to see the roots of my "technical twin brother" Hotel staff and facilities were excellent in all respects It provided a "first class" class experience Besides Graceland, my wife of 58 years and I enjoyed the pleasures of Beale St and the Riverboat cruise

Super Hotel

Posted Jun 26, 2016
Etwas von Downtown entfernt, aber super Lage am Mississippi. Zimmer sind groß und gut eingerichtet. Als Betthupferl gibt es Lindt Schokolade und ein Gläschen Portwein.
