There’s no need to travel to the coasts to see the water or stay in a trendy boutique hotel. Intimate, luxurious, unique and stylish all describe these three downtown Memphis hotels.

Snuggle in to 100% Egyptian cotton linens and embrace the VIP lifestyle with top-notch service and amenities at the Madison Hotel. Fresh seafood, mouthwatering steaks and warm blackberry bread pudding at their award-winning restaurant, Grill 83, is the perfect remedy for tired travelers and stressed out sightseers. 

The Madison is housed in the Tennessee Trust building (circa 1905 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982) and is conveniently located within walking distance to many attractions including Beale Street, AutoZone Park and the Orpheum Theatre. 

During summer months, the rooftop of the Madison is transformed into a haven for hot music and cold drinks. The warm sunset over the Mississippi River is the perfect backdrop to live music from local bands. 

The Madison Hotel is just one of the trendy boutique hotels that call Memphis home. For another fantastic option, venture over to Mud Island (a small neighborhood in north downtown Memphis) and enjoy all the creature comforts at the River Inn of Harbor Town.

The charm of the Old South meets the intimate style of Europe at this quaint hotel. Gas-lit lanterns and wood-burning fireplaces invoke an elegant atmosphere. Soak up the Zen-like views as barges and river boats pass steadily along the Mississippi River just outside your balcony window. 

Guest of the River Inn are treated to a complimentary glass of Champagne or wine upon arrival and each floor has its own library-style sitting area where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee with a side of the  daily news or your favorite book. To add to the ambiance, Paulette’s, a local favorite restaurant, fills the hotel with the aroma of its French cuisine specialties. 

Talbot Heirs Guesthouse located across the street from the famed Peabody Hotel Memphis is a quaint bed and breakfast off the beaten path from conventional hotels. The rooms are decorated with lots of local art, are closer in size to a studio apartment and are fully stocked with water and snacks. 

This independently owned boutique hotel really goes out of their way to make you feel at home. Prior to touching down, give them a list of your favorite treats and they’ll make sure the kitchen is stocked when you arrive. A night’s stay typically ranges $130-$270 based on room size, availability and time of year.
