Courtyard By Marriott Memphis Airport
Travel Blogs from Memphis
We were off to Memphis, TN. As you may have guessed (or I may have written) I have been joined on my journey by Kevin Laake, Baltimore based bon-vivant and general good fellow. He's also a whiz at anything numbers which works out well with my no planning big picture approach to this trip. So when you hear me referring to Kevin, It's not me. I haven …
Today began my 10 day journey from Kansas to the east coast and finally Chicago. Kansas pushed me out of the state with below freezing temperatures and impending inches of snow. I chose to stay on the interstate since I have seen the desolation of Oklahoma and therefore didn't feel compelled to see it in slower motion. After driving south all …
... in the stretch pink limo.....FOR FREE!! (Free is the best thing ever) We had a whoppin meal of pulled pork and ribs - I know now why Elvis balooned in size in his later years, who wouldn't with the food they have down here! The entertainment in the rataurant was an ex-marine Elvis impersonator, great combination. He was being very patriotic on the day that was in it, and cranking out the tunes (and even throwning in a bit of trivia) in between times. ...
... Graceland, Memphis Tennessee." I just couldn't get that Paul Simon song out of my head. After the big day and night yesterday we had a leisurely start and walked the 5min walk to Graceland at about 9:30am. It was Sunday so it was pretty quiet, I'm guessing because everyone was still in Church.
Graceland was very commercial with 8 separate museums/exhibits as well as his Graceland house itself. Every exhibit had its own shop and you could just about buy ...
... famous “marching of the ducks”. The Peabody is one of Memphis’ oldest hotels and the duck march started as a drunken prank in 1933, when the owner brought some ducks back to the hotel after a fishing trip. Ever since, at 11am, the ducks come down in the elevator from their Penthouse Suite, march across the lobby, and jump into the fountain, where they spend the day. At 5pm, they head back up.
We arrived early to get a good spot, and I ...

Il personale migliore in assoluto
Ho soggiornato al Memphis Airport Courtyard per una settimana e sono stato magnificamente. Il personale era cosė cordiale e disponibile. L'addetto al ricevimento del turno serale, James, mi č stato di grande aiuto ogni giorno; mi chiedeva se avevo mangiato, se avevo fame o se avevo bisogno di andare da qualche parte. Mi ha fatto sentire come a casa. Avrebbe fatto di tutto per soddisfare ogni mia esigenza. Mi ha detto anche che il direttore dell'hotel ha istruito il personale a non dire mai di no agli ospiti. Questo č servizio!
The Best Staff Ever
i stayed at the memphis airport courtyard for a week and i had the time of my life the staff was so triendly and so helpful. the worker that was working that night james helped me every night that i spent there i stay there for a week and every day he ask me have i eatten or was i hungry or did i need to go any where he made me feel like i was at home and that if i need anything he would go above and beyond th do it. and he told me that his general manager told them to never tell the guest no. now thats service
Good catch for you budget concious travellers
I stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway to Memphis. This hotel is located very close to the airport yet I did not hear any noises. The hotel was overall clean and the entire staff was very friendly. I booked this hotel and flight together through site59 where I received a very good deal. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced yet the food was very dry and non tasteful. On my second morning I arrived at the dining room at around 10:30 and was told that the buffet was mostly cleared. I went ahead anyway and the server was generous to give me a discount. I enjoyed that the hotel offered free parking and also has an outdoor pool.
Pros- Free parking, Outdoor Pool.
Cons- Terrible Food.
Not all bad
The Courtyard at the Memphis Airport was very clean. All of the staff were very polite and welcoming. The hotel is using new technology to make sure that only guests can enter the hotel. However, through no fault of their own, every morning around 3:30 - 4 the FEDEX planes take off right over your room. The noise woke us and we couldn't rest again until they had all taken off.
Remodeling will change your view drastically
I've always stayed at Marriotts and used this Courtyard because of its convenience to Tunica, downtown and east Memphis, nothing is ever too far away, even though it's not close to much.
Just stayed there this weekend and they are in the middle of a complete remodel. Very extensive. The rooms are being gutted and upgraded quite a bit. If you get a room now, you'll get a remodeled one and they are very nice. With the remodel complete and the convenient location, I think this is an undiscovered gem for staying cheap in Memphis.
GREAT rate...but very ghetto!
Noisy, horrible location and appeared to be a favorite of the locals who conducted business in their rooms.... my neighbors were as I heard some banging against the walls and screams of pleasure.
My boss' flight was late, when he got in, he was given a key to a room which was already checked in... guess what he walked in on.
Bad experience all around.
Go Else Where
This Courtyard is definitely not up to Marriott standards. The whole facility smelled like smoke and the overall appearance was dark, dirty and dingy. When I checked out the room it was filthy (seemed to be a standard trait throughout the facility) and I went to the desk and immediately canceled my reservations and stayed elsewhere.
Not up to Marriott's Standards...go elsewhere!
I am a trip planner for my company and we have been using Marriott's quite extensively. This was the worst one we have ever used. Un-friendly staff, not prepared, overcharges and un-responsive management. Most Definitely not up to Marriott's standards.
I liked it
We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and liked it alot. We found the room to be very clean and the facilites immaculate. The staff was friendly to us and very helpful recommending things to do in town. Even though its close to the airport, noise was not a problem. Would definitely stay there again.
Stay at another hotel
Do yourself a favor and find another hotel in Memphis. This place is NOT up to the usual Marriott standards: poor room quality and housekeeping, lousy food and service, unfriendly staff, all at a upscale room rate. There are better choices, I'm sure.
