Downtown Memphis is home to the FedEx Forum - home court for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association and the University of Memphis Tigers - always one of the best teams in college hoops. The Forum is also ground zero for big concerts, the circus, monster truck shows and more - so there's rarely a dark night at the palatial events center, which is located just off Beale Street and only a few blocks from the Mississippi River.
Finding lodging near the Forum - and by near, we mean within a few blocks walking or a quick trolley ride away - is easy, and there are options for every budget and taste. From lush and historic hotels to accommodations for families and the budget-conscious, there's no shortage of downtown hotels that can serve as home base for a night at the Forum - and give you easy access to many of the attractions in downtown Memphis.
The sleek and contemporary Westin Beale Street overlooks the Forum and even offers some NBA-sized rooms with extra-long beds and high shower heads. Visiting teams usually stay here – you can tell if there's a fan base outside the hotel on game days. The historic Peabody Hotel is just a quick three blocks from the Forum, with the moderately priced and extremely well-located Hampton Inn Beale Street right in the middle of all the Beale Street action.
