“A Great place to stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

we arrived late coming back from a vacation in myrtle beach sc. the night staff was friendly and helpful. the rooms were clean and comfortable. the open atrium area gives off a feeling of importance. the breakfast was incredible they did an excellent job taking care of us.

This is a great place to stay. I have never seen anything like it. All the rooms face a big atrium with an escalator that runs to the 3rd floor. It is a hospitality school and a museum. We were on the museum floor, and it was really interesting! We also loved the multiple separate areas in the lobby for movie-watching with our friends who were also staying there.

Our room was clean and well-kept. The employees were friendly and professional. They do not have free breakfast, but they do have "kid's eat free" for breakfast and dinner. All buffets. Very good food.

I was picked up promptly from the airport on arrival, but I was disappointed to have to take a cab on departure because their shuttle doesn't start until 7 a.m.

I would stay here again for sure!

Room Tip: I liked being on the second floor at the museum. First floor would also be nice.

Whatever the reason you are in Memphis for this location is wonderful and we felt safe and secure. If it's personal or business run for reservations before all the rooms are gone. It's across the street from the University of Memphis so I'm sure it's booked far in advance for events the school has.

Even better than the first. I checked in late. No problem. Brian at the desk upgraded me to the PRESIDENTAL SUITE! Holly Molly. 2 sinks, 2 huge rooms, a refrigerator as big at the one at my home. Brian welcomed me as a platinum member, gave me my points at treated me like I was the most important person in the place. You just can't ask for better treatment than this.
I am thinking about staying here until they forcibly evict me, LOL.

This hotel is some distance from downtown and public transport is scarce, so be prepared to travel by taxi to downtown attractions or Graceland. Fares are reasonable between $20-25 respectively.

The hotel room was large and facilities adequate but attention to cleanliness of the bathroom was lacking and detracted from the overall satisfaction of our stay. Renovation, particularly of the bathroom is well overdue.

The breakfast had a good variety from which to choose and table service provided.

The airport shuttle service was advantageous.

This is a typical Holiday Inn, located across from the University of Memphis. Room was a suite with comfortable beds; pillows, however, were uncomfortable--hard. Close to downtown, free parking is a plus. Staff was nice. Facilities and room were clean, but bathtub showed flaking enamel.

Room Tip: We always request high floor away from elevator to avoid noise.
