The location was good for us because we drove, parking was good, close to Beale st, we drove there, parked, then walked. The hotel was clean. The bed was very uncomfortable. Way to soft, we stayed for 2 nites and I had a backache from the soft bed. Also we were on the 5th floor, maybe that was the reason...

hotel is in hospital zone of Memphis. Very clean and sound proof hotel. beds are comfortable. We had an issue with our shower - where there was no water pressure. not sure if due to excessive rain and flooding in Memphis during our stay or if broken. Staff was wonderful, though at checkout and during breakfast that morning. Very good...

Don't be fooled by the hotel size & the location. The room was excellent & super clean. Stayed on the top floor , so the water flow wasn't that great but it was ok. Hotel is very close to downtown & rate was excellent. You can get the shuttle to downtown across the street.

The location is perfect, Midtown...everything easily accessible. The average review is due to the beds...they were so high my husband had to literally pull me up on the bed each night! I am not short...just the beds are that high. Could use a step-stool.

Way upcharged for our room with little amenities no pool or excercise facility and not within walking distance to anything. Very expensive room for the quality and services Room including surcharges and fees and taxes almost 800 bucks for one room two nights

Nice hotel in a somewhat nice area. If you are attending a concert near Mud Island or here for Memphis in May, the location is close. Rooms are nice and staff of very friendly and helpful. Usually price is good but during a busy weekend like Memphis in May, the rate went up. Will stay here again.

On our way to Texas we decided to spend the night in Memphis. Having not stayed here before we were not sure where the hotels were located and our son told us to make sure the area was safe. Checking TA we found the BW which was reasonable in price so I took a chance. First let me say even...

From the outside, the hotel doesnt look very inviting, but once inside you will be surprised. From the friendly reception staff (Linda) to the size and cleanliness of the rooms, and the breakfast served up by Diana, this is a very good hotel. With lots of on site parking available aswell, it is very handy. Even if you do not...
