Stay at a hotel in downtown Memphis and feel connected with the heartbeat of the city known for its blues, its soul, its grit-and-grind NBA team, and its authentic charm.
Downtown Memphis is a very walking-friendly environment, so if you stay at hotels like Doubletree Hotel Memphis Downtown , there's no need for a cab. Downtown is home to a number of Memphis musts, including Beale Street, the National Civil Rights Museum and The Metal Museum. From virtually every downtown hotel, tt's an easy stroll to the Mississippi River, where Tom Lee Park beckons for joggers, walkers and picnics (and is home to major events including Memphis in May). If you're catching a concert at FedEx Forum or Mud Island, then downtown is definitely the place to stay, as you'll want to go from concert to after-concert party on Beale, then just breeze to your hotel-away-from-home. A few downtown Memphis hotels house some of the best restaurants in the city, as well - including The Peabody's Chez Philippe and Paulette's at The River Inn of Harbortown. For NBA star-gazing, try The Westin Memphis Beale Street, where teams getting ready to take on the hometown Grizzlies stay - it's just across the street from the FedEx Forum.
