“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We just loved staying at the River Inn, from the wonderful welcome and complimentary drink we received as we walked through the door right through to the turndown service and complimentary port every night ... which was a wonderful surprise. The best asset of this hotel are the staff who are exceptional. The room we booked had an outstanding view of the river and we were impressed with the various restaurants available. Again, the staff were amazing - thanks to Shannon who waited on us over a couple of nights - she was brilliant and made us feel so much at home.

Loved everything about this wonderful little boutique hotel, especially the beds and pillows. The complimentary champagne and wine as we checked in was a nice - and welcoming - touch as well. The staff was very friendly and professional and the rooms were on the large size and spotlessly clean. We had a lovely view of the river, too. My only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer - but we would definitely good back if in the area.

What a great place to stay while in Memphis. I booked a bit late for our trip to Memphis and was initially concerned about not being 'in the heart of Memphis', but this IS THE PLACE TO STAY!!!!

The staff start your great experience at registration where they do greet you with a glass of wine, a smile and true desire to make your stay wonderful. The room provided had a fantastic view of the river, an absolutly wonderful bed and luxury bath. Turndown service was a pleasant addition each evening which included a nice port and truffles on the bedside table. Location is very nice and only a short taxi to where the action is in Memphis, plus we had great discussions with the taxi drivers. Breakfast is included and should not be missed. The Euro deli plate is enough for 2 and other offerings were great as well.

In my travels and in my business I know what it takes to hold a #1 rank and River Inn of Harbor Town does too. We will be back!

Room Tip: Corner room with river views are wonderful

I stayed with 5 friends at the River Inn for 3 nights. We had a suite and a handicapped room. The suite was wonderful with lovely views of the Mississippi. The handicapped room was nice, but not really handicapped accessible - the bed was too high for a wheelchair bound person to get into, the toilet was difficult to get on to from a wheelchair, and the shower controls for the hand held nozzle were located at the top of the shower head - which was not accessible to our guest in a wheelchair. The breakfast at the restaurant was great, but service was very slow. The Terrace Bar was beautiful and had great small plates - the view was spectacular, especially at sunset. We liked the location of the hotel, but it is not near downtown. The staff at the hotel was especially gracious and willing to do whatever was necessary to help out.

My husband and I stayed at the River Inn and loved it! From the complimentary champagne & wine at check-in to the port & chocolates left in the room at turn-down - this hotel definitely tries to ensure you have a comfortable, pampered stay! Our room overlooked the river and had everything we needed. We ate dinner downtown and had no trouble getting a cab there and back. Breakfast at Paulette's was wonderful! We strongly recommend the River Inn if you are looking for a place to get away!

We stayed at the River Inn and were blown away. We actually live in Harbor Town and have never taken advantage of this wonderful place! The hotel is nestled in the Harbor Town neighborhood that is located on Mud Island in the Mississippi River. There are several amenities right outside the hotel - a dry cleaner, small grocery store, small boutique clothing store for women and men, coffee shop, gym, manicure and pedicure boutique, and a spa! The park-like neighborhood is very safe and beautifully maintained. The hotel check-in was smooth and the room was comfortably appointed with amazing views of the river and beautiful sunsets. The rooftop Terrace at the River Inn feels like you are in Barcelona- the tapas are fantastic and the ambience is incredible. We had dinner from Paulette's and it was perfect as well. The popovers with the strawberry butter are just like you are in France! Delish! The general manager, Karl Friedrich, is world-class and one of the best I have met.
The River Inn is definitely a wonderful place to stay!
