The hotel is idealy located in the downtown area and for that matter the price is very much acceptable. When you get to the hotel the check - in area is on the ground floor next to the entrance to the car park. The rooms however are not on the ground floor, but start a few floors up.
The breakfast area is located on the 9th floor. So don't make your way down !!!! It is a small breakfast area so I opted to get the things I wanted and eat it in my room.
The pool is a nice plus. Loved the lounge chairs alongside the pool.
I had my questions about the cleanliness of the room as the sheets had wrinkles in the like you get when they have been used and there was a long black hair in my bed and that was definitely not mine as I have short blond hair. Despite the roomrates ( which once again were quite ok ) I think when you get into a room you should at least get a sensation that you are in a clean environment.
Did not have to many encounters with the staff, but when I did it was all friendly and helpfull.
From the hotel it is an easy walk to Beale street where you can find a nice selection of restaurants and Autozone park ( baseball field ). The waterfront is not too far either.
When travelling with public transportation: ask a local what busses do stop in front of the hotel. The transportation website is not accurate and the signs at the stop are either not there or not clear about the bus numbers.
If you are travelling on a budget to Memphis and you want a great location then stay here. If you are more of a Ritz person than this is not the place for you.
