Memphis hotel

We will spend a couple of nights in Memphis this December. We plan to visit Graceland and the Civil Rights museum so not sure where a good area is to stay. we will have a car.

Following. I have the same question. We are there for the Liberty Bowl so also interested in lodging in the city for December.

The luxury hotel in town is the Peabody. It was full when we visited so we stayed at the Holiday Inn across the street.

Memphis is an odd town. The streets, except for the few blocks of Beale, were pretty much deserted at all hours. We walked to Sun Studios (about a mile), passing only two or three people each way. It was like a neutron bomb had gone off. I guess most people drive.

You will also see a lot of armed guards around, outside restaurants and such. We had one in our hotel lobby.

The civil rights museum recounts our tragic history from the black perspective. That exposure to that point of view (for whites such as myself) alone makes a visit worthwhile.

I got a great deal at a Comfort Inn downtown. Reviews were good and the location looks fine. Has anyone stayed there?

Downtown and close by Beale Street is good. If memory serves, I did stay at the Comfort Inn Downtown when I visited there and it was perfectly fine. Not sure I'd want to stay any further north of Beale than this, though.

Across the street from the Peabody is the lovely Talbot Heir Guest House, a beautiful apartment for the price of a hotel room.
