... Just a quick bite at the bar, but the food was once again very good, albeit expensive on a travellers budget. So with the first stop a success, we went to the trolley, as this is cheap and takes you around the main areas. We got on and went for the 40 minute circle trip. To be honest, apart from Beale street, I didn’t really see anything of particular interest. On the way back to the hotel we saw that the Memphis Red Birds were playing baseball that ...

On return, we nipped into the rather nippy and fridge-like rock and roll museum to learn about the role the musical revolution played in the civil rights movement in this area. With Music studios emerging to record black talent from the cotton fields. The likes of Jerry Lee Louis, BB king, Johnny cash, Howlin Wolf, Isaac Hayes all made ...

Graceland is certainly a place to come back to visit again. We didn’t even touch on Memphis city itself and would love to do some exploring there too. ...
Before we completely abandon the Mississippi River, we have stopped here in the land of Elvis...literally....Graceland is just across the street from where we are staying at Graceland RV Park. We have stayed here before and while it was not our first choice, it is not flooded as is our preferred park down by the river....it's not so bad....there is security for the RV park and Heartbreak ...

From there we walked up to the Peabody Hotel where ducks, who live on the roof of the hotel, are escorted down in the lift each day at 11am to swim in the lobby's fountain & then escorted back up at 5pm. There's a real crowd to see it & a ceremony with an honorary duck master to escort them. Back to Beale St again for a couple of hours, we had ...

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.
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.
Alright -- so the newly renovated Park Place hotel is a really nice find in a big city like 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.)
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!
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 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).
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.
