DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Memphis
Travel Blogs from Memphis
Hvem hadde vel trodd at Memphis skulle bli den desidert beste byen så langt på turen? ikke vi i alle fall. Vi digger Elvis, dro hit for Graceland, ikke Memphis i seg selv. Ikke at Memphis er arkitektonisk flott, spesielt ren eller pen, men Beale Street er helt rå på alle andre vis. Vi bor på et Hilton Hotell ca 350 meter unna Beale Street og fant …
A nice day here in Memphis, weather in the 70's and a spectacular sunset. I am looking forward to tonight's trip to Honolulu.

Leaving Atlanta riding with the traffic at 80 miles per

After imbibing at a bar down the street from the hostel and a full day of exploring I proceeded to sleep most of the next day.

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Memphis
We went to Memphis for Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at the Doubletree off Poplar Road near Germantown. The hotel staff was very friendly. The location was great. We were 10 minutes from Graceland and 15 minutes from downtown. We were going to stay near Graceland or the airport but after riding through those neighborhoods we are very glad that we didn't. We ate Bar-B-Q at the Pig Whistle and Rum Boogie. Both were very good yet had different flavors. The Pig Whistle has more of a vinegar based sauce and the sauce at the Rum Boogie was tomato based. If you get tired of Bar-B-Q try the Half Shell. It is right across the street from the hotel. We also recommend the Pink Palace Museum. Beware of the signs off I-240 directing you to the museum. The neighborhoods you drive through to get there are awful. Your best bet is to go down Poplar to Goodlet and then turn on Central. The Ride the Duck tour and Peabody Ducks are a must.
I was very concerned about staying here after reading all the bad experiences of other travelers, but I have no complaints. I did not experience the problems that others reported. The room looked great and did not look outdated to me at all. Everything worked in the room although one lamp was missing a bulb. The staff was friendly and treated me nice even though I had booked a great rate on the internet. There were only 2 people at the front desk so I can see how service could be slow if you arrived during a rush, but I had no problems getting checked in. The workout area was fine for me, but it could be lacking for some travelers. The location is a little inconvenient for downtown travelers, but I was visiting family down the street. Great cookies as usual and there was coffee available in the morning. It's too bad some people had a bad experience, but I'm glad I stayed here.
My 'average' rating that I'm giving to the hotel is due to the workout area; the workout room is NOT for serious workout. As a business traveller, my needs are probably different than regular vacationers: free high-speed internet counts for more than children-oriented services; professional, efficient check-in for hotel loyalty program members are appreciated more than extra tending to special needs. In these criteria, the hotel is above average.
Good (not great) hotel. Friendly staff, wireless internet access, clean rooms, relatively comfortable beds (sheets weren't scratchy, but not an especially high thread count either), carpet a little worn but not bad. Maids will start knocking around 8 unless you hang the sign, so be warned. Bathroom was average size with decent shower/tub--nothing special, but everything worked just fine. Restaurant is decent, though a little pricey. Location is good, though finding the parking lot from the nearby Poplar Ave. can be a bit tricky. Probably a 3 or 3-1/2 star hotel in my opinion, but I felt the price was very good (input $60 on priceline, and wish I'd started lowed but I didn't have enough time to try again in 3 days). Lots of airline staff, so I'm assuming they discount the rooms pretty deeply. But I'm usually happy with a 3-1/2 star stay for a 2-star price. I'd stay here again, though remember it is EAST Memphis, and isn't very convenient to downtown.
Overall great overnight stay
We got a great rate here by booking through Hotwire. We stayed here on July 27, 2004. The hotel was very nice and clean. We appreciated the warm chocolate chip cookie upon check in. We requested a non-smoking room and they put us in a smoking room; but they quickly changed us to non-smoking as soon as we made them aware of the mistake. The room was very clean and spacious and we enjoyed the "extra" amentities of a more luxurious hotel. Was very convenient to our destination in Memphis the next day. We would definitely stay here again.
Memphis is a good place to visit. Things to do, places to see, people that are friendly.
Stayed here for one night, July 10, 2004, through a winning priceline bid of $38.00. There was no mention of priceline upon check-in and were allowed to check in an hour early. We requested a non-smoking room and were given one with 2 doubles since all the kings were taken. The staff were helpful if questions were asked and we experienced no problems with any staff.
I stayed at this hotel for two nights because of location for a business trip and even thought I had stayed there in 1999 when it was a Hilton I was curious about the "renovated" hotel.
We experienced terrible customer service at the Memphis Doubletree. I can't help but wonder if the hotel staff feel they are not obligated to treat us as they would their "regular" customers since we booked through an online travel site? The service was so unbelievably poor we will definitely not be returning there.
We are very upset with our stay at the Hilton East in Memphis. we spent one night there and had our car broken into .It was parked in there lot, which should have been safe ,but we found out different.My windshield was broken and everything we had in our car was stolen. The Hilton manager said he would take care of it,Well we have not heard from him and he doesn't return our calls. We lost around $2500.oo worth of items. We had been saving for a couple months to take this trip, just to lose everyting we bought. They even stole our luggage of clothes. We don't advice anyone to stay there because there security is not what it should be. thank you,
