The Westin Memphis Beale Street
Travel Blogs from Memphis
City tour this morning to studio B, where Elvis and many other artists recorded their songs. Then visited thecountry music hall of fame. Excellent. Had lunch there then a song writer joined us for and sang some of his songs. Left Nashville after lunch and headed to memphis.
Arrived ar hotel , had dinner at bb kings, then listened to a blues band until midnight.
Gracelands tour which was fantastic. But there were too many gift shops.
In the afternoon we boarded a tram and did a town loop. Town is very run down.
Then walked around beale street and listened to blues music.
A great band were playing in the park.
Had dinner at johnny gs creole cafe. Fantastic nachos.
Listened to a band on …
All Elvis fans will have rushed to Gracelands today (after making any necessary repairs to their cars). Not being Elvis fans, we were not sure how we would react to a tourist crazy destination but the noise from Beale Street below our hotel meant earplugs were necessary for the first night. After checking the Jaguar in the morning and fixing a few …
A relatively late start today at 8-10 am but we are always on the go at 6 am, packing the car etc. even when we have more time. We drove along the Tennessee country roads for about 80 miles to the first Regularity Test. All test speeds seem to have been reduced from 50mph to 35 mph to factor in the fact that there are normal cars on the road and …
Today we drove for only two hours into tennesee. That's about 200 miles. We visited elvis’ Graceland and his grave. We took the tour and saw many of his personal possessions such as awards, rooms, records, and outfits. We went to Beale street and enjoyed a fabulous bbq dinner in front of a live band. (with Green Fried Tomatoes---yum!)

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Memphis Beale Street
I arrived in Memphis with reservations at the Hampton Inn and Suites (I would have normally stayed at the Peabody, but based on Trip Advisor comments and ratings I chose the Hampton). I checked into the Hampton Inn and Suites and realized it wasn't the hotel for me. The Hampton Inn and Suites is a nice, clean hotel but there's no bell man (you have to handle your own luggage), no hotel restaurant, and the rooms are rather small and homey.
We went to Memphis just for a weekend getaway as my husband had never been. I picked the Westin when we were forced to change our travel dates and my first choice was booked. I talked to the folks at Hotels.com to find out why the Westin wasn't rated. Upon learning it was brand new, I figured, "It's a Westin. What could go wrong?" Especially at $200 per night.
Worth Every Dollar Spent
My family had a great experience at the Westin Memphis Beale Street. The staff was very professional. My kids enjoyed the flat screen televisions and I enjoyed the Starbuck's coffee maker in my room.
The Daily Grill was fantastic - the food was good, fresh, and the porportions were huge. I know others that have stayed at the Westin and their experiences were good as well.
It's unfortunate that positive reviews are the ones that are often left untold.
I am staying at the Westin in two weeks and it is my hotel of choice.
Ist jede Mark wert
Unsere Familie hatte einen tollen Aufenthalt im The Westin Memphis Beale Street. Die Angestellten waren professionell. Den Kindern hat der Flachbildschirm auf dem Zimmer gefallen, mir hat gefallen, dass es eine Starbucks Kaffeemaschine auf dem Zimmer gab.
Der Daily Grill war fantastisch, das Essen war gut, frisch und die Portionen waren riesig. Ich weiß von anderen Reisenden, die auch hier waren und eine sehr gute Erfahrung hatten. Schade, dass diejenigen mit positiven Erfahrungen nicht mehr Bewertungen schreiben.
Ich komme in zwei Wochen wieder ins Westin, ist mein Lieblingshotel.
This hotel only opened up about a month ago and it still has lots of problems to work out! First off, I called for a wake-up call on two mornings and it never came. I was very grateful that I had set the alarm on my cell phone as a back-up. Second, the rate that I booked the hotel at was not honored. Third, there is a rooftop patio across the street. When I say that it was LOUD, that may be an understatement. I am a person who usually doesn't complain to a hotel, but the noise coming from across the street was so bad that I couldn't sleep. When I called to ask how long this would be going on, they said until about 3 or 4am and that there was nothing they could do about it. This was on a Sunday night! Lastly, my toilet was running for a full 24 hours. I thought the maid would hear it and send someone to fix it, but that was not the case. Overall, the hotel is nice enough, but definitely not worth the money that it costs to stay there. I would take your money elsewhere until they work out the kinks!
Stil und Eleganz
Dieses niegelnagelneue Hotel war sagenhaft. Der Service war ausgezeichnet, das Zimmer war nicht klein und war im Stil eines W Hotels gehalten. War hier mit einem 10jährigen Kind und zur der Zeit als wir hier waren, war es in Memphis voll. Wir haben das Peabody gesehen und die Enten sind klasse. Ich muss dem vorherigen Reisenden widersprechen und ich bin pingelig. Es war super. Und wir zahlten nur 200 Dollar pro Nacht, was für ein Schnäppchen.
Style and class

Elegante e di classe
Un hotel nuovissimo davvero incredibile. Il servizio era eccellente, la camera non era piccola ed era in tipico stile Westin. Con mio figlio di dieci anni siamo stati qua a maggio che è un periodo molto affollato a Memphis. Non avevamo nessun segno di riconoscimento legato al polso. Siamo stati al Peabody e penso che le anatre avessero le sistemazioni migliori. Mi spiace per l'autore della recensione precedente, ma sono un tipo esigente di L.A. È stato fantastico. Ho pagato soltanto 200 dollari a notte, un vero affare.
Please spend you money in another downtown hotel. I have only stayed in downtown Memphis a few times, but the Westin was the worst. Due to a booking problem with the Peabody, I was forced to find another hotel for the Beale Street Music Festival. The Westin had just opened for business and had rooms available.
