SpringHill Suites Memphis Downtown
Travel Blogs from Memphis
We left Sun Records and headed right over to Graceland, about a ten minute drive(just outside the city of Memphis). Our tickets for that I purchased through AAA, which was a savings of $8 a ticket.
Once we parked and got our tickets, we were given a pair of headsets and self guide recorder, and then they ushered us into a line for a small …
Beale Street in Memphis is the equivalent of Bourbon Street in New Orleans except no strip clubs...just bars and restaurants and novelty stores...the nightlife area of the town for sure. One of the novelty stores we saw had everything Elvis...even a toilet seat which we found funny. Then we were told that "Elvis died on the toilet so it kind of …

We're also going Oma swamp tour tomorrow, which will be interesting, I think. Not so sure about it to be honest, but I'm only here for a short amount of time, so why not?

... every electric guitar as part of the final inspection. They would listen and tune it accordingly, by ear, so that it was all set and ready for consumer purchase.
At this particular Gibson factory, each guitar was virtually hand-built and individually tuned before it got shipped out and sold for anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 retail. We learned that with a staff of 65 this factory runs a single shift, Monday to Friday producing approximately 50 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Memphis Downtown
Just Loved it
From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The suite was fabulous with everything we needed. Make sure you get a balcony overlooking the park and the trams.
The location is perfect, close enough yet far enough away from Beale Street not to be disturbed by the noise. It is only about 4 blocks, a ten minute walk.
Breakfast was more than adequate and complimentary.
The staff arranged taxis to Graceland and the airport.
We loved the hotel and we loved Memphis.
My husband and I stayed at the Springhill Suites in May. The location is perfect. You can walk to Beale Street or jump on the trolley, but you're not right downtown in the busy section. The pool is nice, but not private. The adjacent buildings are 10 feet away and the windows face the pool. The rooms at the Springhill Suites are very spacious. Breakfast (which is included) is more than just continental fare - it includes pancakes, fruit and lots of other slections. One word of caution - don't book a room facing the side with the trolley tracks. The noise of the trolleys (which start very early and end very late), do not make for a restful sleep. However, the location is great and the rooms are very nice and it's a great choice if you don't want to spend the extra $ on the very luxe Peabody.
My wife and I booked this hotel on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews. Vacation. Three nights. Spacious and comfortably furnished room. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Adequate breakfast included in rate. High speed internet. All staff courteous and helpful. Location is convenient to Beale Street, Museum of Rock & Soul and shuttle services to other attractions. This new hotel and neighboring hotels are in an area in transformation with a number of building undergoing restoration. At night, we did not feel particularly safe walking to and from hotel because of loiterers and panhandlers on corners and near trolley stops. Note that many restaurants in area are closed on Sunday and Monday nights - not very tourist- friendly. As result, you might be forced to walk to Beale Street for dinner. Beale Street a real disappointment after visiting Bourbon Street. As development continues in the area, the "edginess" should lessen. The concerns expressed relate to Memphis generally rather than this hotel specifically. We recommend this hotel; it has much to offer at a reasonable price.
It was perfect for us!
I learned of this hotel on tripadvisor.com. I can't say enough good things about it. It was a nice, clean hotel. It was comfortable for the 5 of us that went. There were two queen sized beds and a sofabed. The refrigerator and microwave were nice to have in the room. The rooms are not as big as an Embassy Suites, but it worked for us. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room. A nice breakfast was served, which included, waffles, eggs, sausage, bagels, rolls, oatmeal, cold cereal, and fruit. The location was perfect for us, who had never been to Memphis. We did not rent a car, but the trolley stops right behind the hotel. We used this to tour the area and then to get us to the Civil Rights Museum. The cost of the trolley is only $.60. We walked to most of our sites: the Mississippi Riverboats, Beale Street... The people working there are very friendly. I called in advance to get the number for transportation since the hotel does not provide a shuttle to/from the airport. This was very reasonable, $25 for the 5 of us. We also ended up taking a taxi to Sun Studio, we started out walking and then decided to opt for a taxi - this too was very reasonable and everyone is very friendly. I hope to go back to Memphis, and I'm sure we will stay at the same hotel. The rates are reasonable compared to others in the area, and you couldn't ask for a nicer location. There is also a nice park in the courtyard behind the hotel.
Nice place to stay downtown
My family and I stayed at this hotel and were pleased. We will stay again. It was clean and we liked the location. Easy walk to Beale Street and on the trolley line. We had a balcony room which I recommend. There is a nice view of the park from a balcony room but not much view at all on other side of hotel. We didn't think the breakfast was anything to brag about but there was a restaurant on the park square that served a great breakfast. For the geographically challenged (I get lost every where I go): the hotel address is Main Street but you can't drive down this part of Main because of the trolley line. You get to this hotel from Front Street but you can't see it from Front Street (there is a tall building in front of it). It is located beside a Sleep Inn which you can see from Front Street.
We just returned from a weekend trip where we found our room to be very clean and comfortable with many amenities. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, two telephones and two televisions which added to our comfort. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful by providing city directions and preparing a bountiful breakfast. We found the location to be excellent for our needs. Convenient parking was available. This was the first time that we stayed at a Springhill location and we will return.
Excellent hotel and location
Suite was very comfortable and clean, plenty of room for five. We had a balcony at the front of the hotel which was worth the extra cost and overlooks the park.
Hotel is situated within walking distance to Beale Street (10minutes) or you can hop on the trolley bus outside the hotel for a very small charge. (Keep plenty of coins as no change is given)
Each morning a good variety of food is provided for breakfast which is included in the price.
There is a $5.00 charge per day for car parking.
If you ask the receptionist for directions, they can provide you with a prepared detailed route. eg to Gracelands.
Springhill Suites Downtown Memphis
We stayed at the Springhill Suites in Downtown Memphis this weekend, and it was very clean & comfortable. The rooms were a little narrow to classify as suites in my opinion, but they did have a separate kitchenette, and sitting area. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for the location and the wonderful complimentary breakfast. We could walk to Beale St. in 5 minutes, and if you didn't feel like it, just hop on the trolley right outside the door.
A good value in the revitalized Memphis downtown. Location is great - about a block from Mud Island, within walking distance of the Pyramid.
The downtown trolley stops right behind the hotel. Rooms are a little small for a suite hotel but they are very comfortable, quiet and clean.
The breakfast layout was decent - coffee, muffins, bagels, cereal and fruit, etc.
Hotel parking is in a lot that is shared with another hotel and is also open to the public. If you go in and out during the day you might have a problem finding an open space when you return. I was working afternoons and nights during my stay so I was able to find a spot when I got back in.
Traffic in that downtown area of Memphis was surprisingly light and I was always able to get around without being stuck in a traffic jam. The Interstate loop around the city can get pretty bad during rush hour but it didn't affect my travels.
I'd be happy to stay at the Springhill again.
I stayed at Springhill Suites Downtown - Memphis in September 2002. My sister and I met for a long weekend and found this new hotel to be extremely clean! The staff was friendly and the location was PERFECT - just blocks away from BEALE Street!! Also, the Trolley line is just behind the hotel in a nice park-like setting with carriage horse rides traveling up and down the street! The breakfast is included, as well, and I just can't say enough nice things about Springhill Suites - Memphis!
