Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Memphis
Everything I expected
My kids and I stayed at the Memphis Marriott East this past weekend for a little getaway and play in the pool. We had a blast. The staff was all very friendly and super helpful. The pool area was well maintained and clean. The room was clean, and comfortable. There isn't anything I can say that hasn't been said in the other reviews. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again.
My wife and I spent three nights and was very impressed by the service, location, and the overall quality. This is truely one of the gems of Memphis!!
my girlfriend and I went for a 4 day weekend in june and what a great time. The room was great with a kitchen. First thing we did was walk to grocery store and stock up. room was cleaned everyday and the staff was great. free breakfast every morning (alot of choices) and free happy hr on mon-thur. we didn't rent a car and there was no need. We walked everywhere or took the trolley ($1). We took the tour bus to graceland which picked you up at the hotel. went to beale st early every day and then hit the local pubs later as the tourists/crowds appeared-the locals are very nice. Highly recommend the residence inn. One thing is when I asked for cab to airport next am they had a car service which was $10 more than cab in so probably better you call yourself.
Myself, husband, daughter, and mother stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is nicely decorated. It was very busy due to family reunions, soccer tournaments, and families visiting for the holiday. The bed was on of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. We ate at the restaraunt one morning for breakfast and vowed never to again. The buffet was $40 for 2 adults and 1 child. It wasn't worth it at all! It was in a convenient spot to visit our family but a bit of a drive to the downtown area. My daughter accidently left her GameBoy with about 20 games in the room. We called immediately for them to check the room but didn't get any response. We called a couple days later and was told they found it and would Fedex it the next day. 1 week went by with no GameBoy. We called again and no one knew what I was talking about. Finally it arrived days later and we noticed the game cartridges were not in the same place she left them, but we were grateful for the return of the expensive items. All in all, the hotel was ok and it satisfied our need.
Great accomodations, but in shady part of town
I've stayed here for a couple of weeks on business in Jan, 2005. The hotel itself is very nice with nice elegant lobby and bar area, and clean, well furnished rooms. In addition, if you're a Gold member or above in Marriott Rewards program, you get free breakfast buffet (made-to-order omlets, fruit bar, etc.) at the hotel's restaurant. GREAT! The gym is also not bad, although there are no free weights and the universal gym is definitely in need of replacement. Nonetheless, you can get semi-decent workout if you can live with some limitations. (For one, where you should find lat pull-down bars, you find just a short bar used for tricep workout.)
The location is good/bad depending on what you need. It's right off of I-240, about 10 minutes from the airport, so it's convenient if you don't mind driving around Memphis (this hotel is about 25-30 minutes from downtown). However, the surrounding neighborhood, from what my co-worker who lives in Memphis tells me, is not a good one; that explains the high metal fences that surround the hotel lot. Choices of dining in the vincity of the hotel is limited to Arby's, Popoye's, Taco Bell and IHOP; mostly fast-food places.
If you mostly stay in the hotel during your visit, or drive out to your destinations, and if you're a Gold Member or higher, you'll enjoy the hotel. If you make frequent uses of local conveniences, then you'll find this place lacking.
I have stayed here 4 times in the past year for work. Desk clerks are some of the friendliest hotel staff I have seen. Bartender was also friendly. Room was clean.
The service personel at this hotel are committed to 100% patron satisfaction. From the moment we checked in the staff worked to satisfy our every need. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is both a bar and a restaurant downstairs. The food in the restaurant was fantastic, especially the Catfish Jack. Mary, the bartender, was very friendly. The room service staff were exceptional. I highly recommend this hotel. The only suggestion that I have is that they need to update the pages that advertise for this hotel. They tout they are one block from the "Mall of Memphis" but that mall has been closed for several years. I booked the room based on the proximity to the mall, but again the mall is vacant.
A welcome haven
I was thankful to check in to this hotel after spending a night at the Fairfield Inn which was creepy. The bed was fantastic and the service was very warm from everyone we encountered. The room is spacious and attractive. I enjoyed the workout room and indoor pool. They also have a sauna. The buffet breakfast was very pretty good and a great value. I really felt at home at this location.
Not my cup of tea
We get there and the rooms are wrong.Supposed to have joining rooms, we got different floors. It took half the night to sheets for my kids to go to bed. Cleared that up got different room then the tub dont work.
The best thing about the stay is the pool and the bed.Best bed Ive ever been on in a motel.
close to the airport, but not much else. After the room service is shut down nothing left to eat but Tacos or pancakes.(tacobell, IHOP). Very comfortable beds,clean and friendly staff. ask for Roy the man to know in memphis. Rent a car, cab fare 25-30 dollars each way to bealstreet.

... in town. After all that we headed out for dinner on Beale street. Apparently Memphis is famous for its BBQ so we went to a place called the rum cafe and court and I shared BBQ pulled pork with coleslaw and chips (sorry fries over here!). It was one of the best meals we've had over - delicious! Then the three of us just bar hopped through Beale street. It was fun! It's like bourbon street New Orleans just on a smaller/quieter scale.

We headed off to the Fed Ex Forum after dinner, as we had pre-booked NBA tickets to watch the Memphis Grizzlies play the New Orleans Pelicans. Memphis is suppose to be the best crowd in the league, however the place was mainly empty. After a long couple of hours, we wandered home alone Beale Street (which was also dead) and back to the hotel.
... my blue suede shoes and board the plane many hours ago. Lucky when I touched down in the land of the Delta blues, it wasn't pouring rain. Today however the heavens did open and poured down sideways. The streets were a washout. We ducked for cover and decided best to stick to the diners and museums, likely Memphis has the best in the world, particularly Elvis's old home, and place of rest, Graceland. We hired a car yesterday, so it was easy to get out there. It's 20 mins out of town. It's ...
