... soon as they started to get darker I jumped up and stood under this little window blind on the front of the building. It would have offered maybe 1m2 of coverage. A few minutes after I made the move the rain started falling, and falling and before long it was what can only be described as torrential downpour. Flash flooding in the streets and all. The four of us were huddled under this blind, bags on the ledge so they ...
... shattered, so we dumped our bags and chilled out for an hour or so. After a while, we decided to head out for a little wander around the streets surrounding the hotel, to get a feel for the area. There were homeless people everywhere, it was muggy as hell and we didn't see a single non-african-american person apart from each other in the six or so blocks that we walked...it was a bit strange, and so different from San Diego. We happened across one of ...

and finally... Checking into a hotel at Memphis airport with a giant bed and a shower... We made it.
... and to think, y'all thought it would be me causing trouble ;)
Tomorrow we pick up the hire car and head to Beale Street and Sun Studios and the real adventure starts.
G'night from us until tomorrow. We're gonna have a brew and get some shut-eye.
Happy Birthday, Dad! I hope you have a great day!
After taking down our campsite, we drove to the parking lot at Graceland, home of Elvis Presley. Elvis Presley bought Graceland in 1957 for $102,500.00 at the age of 22. It was named after the former owner's Aunt Grace. Over 600,000 visitors tour Graceland each year making it one of the five most visited homes. It sits on 13.8 acres of land and includes the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Madison Hotel Memphis
# 1 hotel in Memphis
Memphis needed this beautiful 1st class hotel. The design is unique and contemporary. The service is outstanding and at the level of some of the best in the world. Staff is the most friendly an dprofessional I have ever come in contact with.
What's the big deal?
Perhaps Memphis deserves ANYTHING else but the "famous" (but lousy) Peabody, but this place is not it. Food is lousy, service is primitive. We drove all the way out to another restaurant named Equestria to have a mediocre meal then drive all the way back downtown....bad time....bad recommendations from the locals...they don't know good service or good food! Memphis is behind most other cities I visit by about 15 years
Won't stay anywhere else in Memphis
have stayed here 4 times, so far...the staff is polite, quite personable the decor is colorful yet minimalist,the rooms have the most comfortable beds and decorand for some reason, I am constantly reminded of good music while I am there
I spent a great week here.
I stayed 6 days, the room was a little smaller than I expedcted for the price. The bed was terriffic+ and the linens luxurious. I tipped the maid well on my first day and explained that I was a Beale St. musician that would be playig all night and sleeping all day. I need a maid at 3:30PM not 9am. Housekeeping accomodated me as did the mini-bar captian. Security was good w/ a doorman. Bathroom and it's accoutrements were fine, great blues sampler CD to listen to and TV package was adequate. The only minor inconveniences were caused by construction around Madison Ave. at the time. Also I had to walk two blocks to another hotel to catch the daily airport shuttle back.
I just returned from the Madison and was pretty impressed by the overall quality of the hotel. Nice exercise facilities, smallish but very attractive rooms, fantastic linens and a very peaceful and private overall atmosphere. The bathrooms were pretty amazing too- big, with separate shower and bathtub, and lots of marble. The free continental breakfast was better than average, and the bartender pours a mean (if wildly expensive) drink. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay in Memphis, don't mind a little bit of attitude, and are willing to pay a little more than at other properties in town, this is a very good choice.
Horrible customer service!
Manager has no clue about customer service and the chef in the restaraunt needs to return to cooking school. Manager actually argued with me and was defensive when I shared my experience.What a disappointment, Memphis needs an upscale customer service oriented establishment.PASS!
Pass on This Hotel
Stay was an absolute nightmare. Maid walked in after I had retired for the evening. Hotel said she was doing turndown service - but at 10 p.m. I don't think so. I left a bracelet in the room which the hotel at first denied fiding. The same bracelet was mysteriously mailed to me two days later. Strongly suggest choosing another hotel.
Much better and more updated hotel compared to the Peabody! It is much more comfortable and fun than the Peabody. Finding a newspaper around there is like finding a needle in a haystack though!
Friendly staff and beautiful "artsy" decor. The mattress was wonderful, too!
