Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Memphis East
Just got back from a one night stay at Park Place when passing through Memphis. All hotels nearby were booked and this hotel was recommended to me by Hampton Inn on Poplar.
Paid 79.99 for Thursday night stay.
Service was excellent and friendly our entire stay!
Wow, this hotel has recently been remodeled. Our room on the fourth floor was very nice, large and super clean. Entering the room there is a tiled entry with a fridge and coffee area, full length mirror leading to large, high-end bathroom. The rest of the room had all new linens, a huge tv, and a comfortable bed.
Included in stay a continental breakfast which was nice and had a very pleasant "hostess."
The only negative was that the hotel did not have a crib.
This was much nicer than our stay last year at Memphis Hilton across the street. Would stay here again in a minute...
Park Place is my Place in Memphis
This is a really a great property at a reasonable price. The room is well appointed and the bed sleeps, well. I will stay here on every visit to Memphis.
Front desk staff also very friendly and helpful.
A great find! A clean hotel that's worth the price. A
Alright -- so the newly renovated Park Place hotel is a really nice find in a big city like Memphis.
The biggest negative is that it's not precisely in the downtown Memphis/Beale Street area. It is literally right off the highway, but it's not a dangerous area, and I am pleased to report that I had a room on the ground floor -- and had ZERO trouble with the sounds of the highway.
The hotel is on Poplar (a big street in Memphis, similar to Commonwealth Avenue in Boston), so it's only about a 15 minute drive (without traffic) down to the downtown.
Otherwise -- this newly renovated hotel is really clean, and almost a bit quaint (250 rooms I think) in its unassuming nature/architecture. Staff was pleasant/knowledgeable.
And the room -- we had a single room with a king bed -- was small but filled with stuff. Big tv that was nice, minifridge (came with soda/water -- which was a nice touch), and a nice bit of closet space for a small room.
This place is ideally suited for couples/individuals who have a car and know the area a bit.
Best Kept Secret in Memphis
If you're looking for a comfortable room (with tons of pillows on the bed), nice exercise facility, pool, ample hot breakfast, manager's receptions... even a cookie at the front desk at night, this is the best kept secret in Memphis. They have done a wonderful rennovation on this hotel and there will soon be the return of a new restaurant where the old Cockeyed Camel stood (a landmark for some west Memphis travelers.)
Convenient to the interstate. Friendly staff. If you want to pay more for less, go somewhere else. If you need a 1 acre lobby with waterfalls or fountains, this isn't your place either. Great for business travelers and families.
Free Internet connectivity and a TV channel lineup that's not the typical 20 channel hotel fare.
For a boutique feel with medium sized chain features, this is the place.
We spent three nights at the park Place and absolutely LOVED it! The hotel was very nice, newly renovated--like a business class hotel, but with a much lower rate. Very nice! We were traveling with a group that was staying at a nearby chain hotel. Reluctantly we transfered to the other hotel to be with the group and should have stayed at the Park Place the entire time. Everything about the Park Place was so much nicer--from the staff, to the room, pool, breakfast and especially the security. The Park Place had a guard in the parking lot and the other nearby hotel did not--which proved to be a problem for some of our friends. The Park Place went out of its way to accomodate us. If I ever travel to Memphis again, I will definitely stay at the Park Place!
Park Place to the Rescue
My husband and two children just returned from a stay at the Park Place Hotel in Memphis. We loved the hotel. We had stayed the previous night at the Homewood Suites on Poplar, right next door to the Park Place, and been really disappointed. Where the Homewood Suites were dreary, dated, dirty, and institutionalized, Park Place was fresh, new, clean, modern, beautiful, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating at every turn. There is absolutely no comparison between the two, even with the Homewood's suites being larger in square footage--they still couldn't compare to the Park Place's newly remodeled peace and beauty.
We will definitely return to the Park Place Hotel--right beside I-240 and at the foot of anything you'd need on Poplar Ave. for shops, food, movie theaters, etc. I loved the details like nice toiletries from Bath and Body Works, refrigerators in every room, and wonderfully comfortable beds,sheets, and big, fluffy towels. Only one quip--with virtually everything remodeled in this hotel, the old showerheads were still in place. Not sure why. The shower was average--not terrible, not memorable. The fitness room is stunning and free high speed internet in the rooms was greatly appreciated. We have stayed in several Memphis area hotels--Marriott Downtown, Hilton, and the Homewood Suites, and the Park Place is a notch above them all--at a MUCH better rate. Thank you!
We loved Memphis. We stayed out EAST on Poplar Ave at the newly remodeled Park Place. It was really nice, very clean and state of the art. GREAT workout room, best I've seen in a hotel. The rooms were newly decorated, very cool and housekeeping was exceptional. Our King room had a pillowtop bed, most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Staying out east we were able to reach downtown all the way on Poplar Ave which gave us some great scenery and we found some awesome restaurants. OUr favs were The Blue Plate Cafe, Corky's (of course) and Sikuski (sushi).
The best dining experience we had was at Felicia Suzanne's downtown. WOW!!!!!! The food and service were out of this world! It was upscale and not cheap but worth every penny. My husband said he would drive all the way back ( 10 hours) just to eat there again!
Also - we loved Beale Street- at night. Not much to do during the day and we found the weekend much better for the bands, etc...VERY Safe and comfortable we had a great time.
Everyone we encountered in Memphis was so nice, helpful and kind. We can't wait to go back!
We stayed at Park Place over the july 4th weekend and it was very comfortable, clean and an excellent deal for Memphis ($99). You can pay more for being downtown (everything was sold out) but this hotel was comfortable and had a great continental breakfast (however try the Blue Plate Cafe, just up Poplar). Bottom line, the beds are very comfortable and rooms are quiet.
The hotel is about a 15 minute drive from graceland. Definitely recommended. Enjoy and have some BBQ.
Customer Service Oriented
If you want a pleasant stay I reccommend Park Place Hotel Memphis, because my fiance and I stayed here on June 28-29. The rooms were nice and spacious. I really loved the printed white linen and the beautiful colored bedspread. The service you receive from the hotel staff is very hospitable, because everyone ensures that you are welcomed. There is a fitness center, pool, complimentary delicious hot breakfast, and free internet access too. Not to mention, that the hotel is right off of I-240 which will take you downtown into Memphis within 15 minutes. I recommend this hotel above all the big franchise names. This is a better deal.
My Husband and I recently made a quick trip to see a relative in Memphis. We had stayed at the Park Place many years ago and chose to stay there this time because of the location. We were so surprised to see the results of the renovations and refurbishments. Our room was terrific and the bed was as comfortable as any I have slept on. The complimentary breakfast was very good and I especially enjoyed the coffee maker that makes lattes and cappacinos as well as hot chocolate and regular coffee. What made our stay more enjoyable was the staff. Every staff member was so friendly and courteous and very concerned that the quality of service was
excellent. We will be staying here on our future trips to Memphis.

... inner city Nashville for a look around. While walking around town, we though hmm it’s become rather windy, then oh a bit of rain, then ahhhhhh run for cover it’s pouring. After standing under a building’s eves, we heard a very loud siren, hmm what’s that for? We look into the restaurant behind us and see 'Tornado warning’ flashing across the TV screen. Wow we didn’t think we’d get to experience that here. We decided to make ...

As we moved thru the famous Jungle Room where his last seven songs were recorded, I thought if Elvis could say anything ...
... brilliant. There was certainly a poignant moment when a video was showing of people singing for equality in a church in the 1950s. An elderly woman was humming and quietly singing along to the words as she was walking around.

After exploring a bit of the CBD, we head back to Beale St for our daily music fix. Beale St by day, doesn't feel quite as tacky as by night, and there are less noisy "music fans". Max heads down into a courtyard and we find ...
... so much about Elvis and other musicians from the same time period.
We spent our last day in Memphis just wandering around, and soaking in the atmosphere. In the evening we visited a famous rib house for dinner. Well, Olly had dinner. I had a cheese sandwich! I knew we’d have a great time in Memphis and it has been a great introduction to Tennessee. Our next stop is Nashville, with a short detour to Chattanooga.
