This particular location is quite lovely as it fits well with the historic feel of Memphis. Registered with the National Historical Registry, you feel you are walking back in time as you take in the art deco lobby and decor surrounding you throughout. The hotel originally debuted in 1930 and one really gets that feel when walking in.
I didn’t get a chance to personally meet the General Manager of this location but Jessie, our front desk representative, was extremely friendly and helpful and able to provide me with all the information I needed quickly and efficiently so that we could get comfortable without delay.
The rooms are the largest I have seen so far in a Residence Inn. Less of a hotel room, more like an apartment, we had more than enough space in this two-bedroom, two bathroom suite. Also with a full service kitchen, the room had free Internet access (with cable provided in room), DVD player (with free DVDs provided in the lobby area) and a full living room and dining room area.
A small fitness center can be found in the second floor. This includes two treadmills, a stationary bike and small weights, as well as free towels and a television.
Complimentary breakfast is served in the hearth room located adjacent to their billiards room. The Main Street Trolley with its vintage trolley cars is located directly outside the door, and many of the favorite local restaurants, shops and sights are a walking distance away. We had our car valet parked ($18 a night) and didn’t need to access our car again till we left. The rate for our two-bedroom, two bathroom suite at the time of our stay was approximately $300 a night.
Check their website for room packages which include tickets to famous sites such as Graceland.
