From hotels in the lively Beale Street area to boutique bed-and-breakfasts that offer quiet comfort, the Bluff City has something for everyone.
In Downtown Memphis, you’ll experience the fun and history of the city. Start your day at Tom Lee Park and learn about one of Memphis’ greatest heroes, then walk along Big River Crossing for unparalleled views of the Mississippi River. Don’t forget to check out the shops, galleries and restaurants lining Main Street as you head closer to the live music and party atmosphere of Beale Street.
The lodging options in downtown Memphis run the gamut from as high-end as the historic Peabody Hotel to as quaint as the guest houses hidden just blocks away from Beale. The Peabody is perhaps the most famous hotel in Memphis, offering modern amenities, historic charm, and views of the Mississippi and the city skyline.
If you’re looking to rest your head in quieter, more suburban surroundings, East Memphis is the place for you. Within its scenic, tree-lined neighborhoods, you’ll experience fine dining, boutique shopping, the Memphis Botanic Gardens and many more treasures.

What’s more, there are plenty of restaurants all over Overton Square and Cooper Young when you’re ready to grab a bite.
