Mediocre in every way. Note how many people from England and small towns stay here. There expectations are low. Many, many, buses stop here to stay and the lobby is packed and slow elevators. Pleasant but lackluster staff. I was roped into staying here because Expedia promised "close to Beale Street." Liars. One mile. Nothing for a few blocks. Highway, courthouse, bail bond store front part of town. It is safe, just - lackluster. I LOVED my visit to Memphis. The sights were better than expected. BUT, stay closer to them so you can go back to your hotel and get refreshed before going to dinner or going back out later at night for a few hours of music. The hotels claims to have a shuttle but given how slow they all move, I walked. I should have spent the extra $50 and stayed "close to Beals Street."
