Historical Traveller Reviews of Doubletree Hotel Downtown Memphis
good hotel, good locationfrom georgygirl1
The hotel lobby is large and welcoming, not as plush as some, but lots of leather sofas, tables, lamps and plants. Reception staff were friendly and gave us warm chocolate cookies as a welcome - delicious! Our room was on the third floor, and was huge. It had the usual 2 queen-size beds, which were very comfortable. The tv was inside a dresser unit which took up a lot of space, but the room was so big it didn't matter. The bathroom was also very large, with a walk in shower at least 4 ft square, and a 2nd shower over the bath. The washbasin was set into a granite top, lots of space, and a large mirror with lights above. It was all very clean, plenty of nice white towels and bathmats, and Nivea toiletries. The hairdryer was a good model, which makes a nice change. The only bad thing was the room had quite a small window so was not very bright, but the weather was overcast and rainy some of the time, so that didn't help.
The hotel restaurant is a TGIFriday, we ate breakfast there and it was fine, good service, they remembered what we like to drink. The carpet in the hotel hallway was a little worn, but decor generally was fine, some pillars in the lobby were painted while we were there.
Right next door to the Peabody and close to Beale St.
We were all happy with the hotel, it was clean and comfortable at a reasonable price.
Dirty, dirty, dirtyfrom beatricepugzilla
Once inside, the room itself was not that bad (or so I thought) and the bed was great but there was no way I would have been barefoot on the carpet in room - was bad as the hallway.
Checked in late the night before so did not notice til the next AM that the In-room coffee maker had old used coffee packs still inside from pervious guests and that the bathroom wall was covered in brown and black mold as well as black hair all over the wall and drain.
Told the front desk and was asked what they could do since I was checking out.
Ended up running out of the hotel to the airport! Memphis has way to many htoels in this price range (rather high for the area) to ever stay here again!
Ok, but not great!from AZMAD
I was attending a small business meeting with the normal amenities of such events. Overall the meeting went well and was served as would be expected, including quality meals (for hotel meals).
My problems are with the worn carpets and paint in the hallways leading to the sleeping rooms. They are not appealing. I would say that the sleeping rooms were comfortable, if not elaborate. As a business traveler, this is about all I expect. Beds were good and I slept well.
Once you get past the issue of the tired looking hallways, this is an acceptable hotel. I have stayed here several times.
Memphis is an interesting city. The downtown is not very active in the evenings, except for Beale Street and the sports venues.
Do Not Stay In This Roach Infested Hotelfrom TonifromOhio
Graceland Stop Overfrom Themate
The room was clean and reasonable size, although the shower and toilet are very close together making getting out of the shower very difficult if you were not paying attention. Bed was excellent the best part about the room. Staff were nowhere as friendly and helpful as our previous stop at the Doubletree Nashville. Breakfast was an easy walk across the street at the Denny's.
Many good Blues bars to try on Beale street, we ate at BB King's Blues Club, and listened to some great music there. The ribs were amazing, try them.
All in all this hotel rates as average compared to many stays I have made around the world. I would recommend it but there are probably better options in the area.
OK Rooms---Terrible Securityfrom cgtambo
Not a bad place for a conferencefrom iki4
Room service was inconsistent, leaving and cleaning items mearly on what seemed like a whim. Holes in the wall from old fixtures. Stains in the carpet and on the walls. Some dirt and hair on the floor in the bathroom that stayed there the entire 3 night stay of the conference.
All in all, not impressed, not what I would expect from a double tree.
The only plus was the front desk staff, and location was great.
There was also no water in the pool, This should be mentioned ahead of time. Its outside, so I guess it must only be a summer thing.
Great Location, Hotel Needs Some Tweakingfrom CCRR
Of the four-night stay, we received housekeeping services two nights. The second time, we walked into the room, noticed that a few things had been moved, remote control removed off of the bed, pillows thrown to the middle of the bed, some towels removed from the bathroom, (we assume by housekeeping staff) but the room wasn't cleaned. We called the front desk and informed them and they sent up clean towels, but were unable to explain what had happened.
We had breakfast included in our rate, which was provided by the TGI-Friday restaurant within the hotel. We could choose from all but one menu choice. The breakfast was average. My english muffin was burned one morning and the hash browns in particular were of the same caliber as you would receive from McDonald's, which was disappointing. How hard is it to cut up a few fresh potatoes and cook them?
All in all, the location was great and the front desk staff were some of the nicest and courteous we've ever experienced. I would stay at this hotel again, but would probably skip the breakfast and would request a more recently renovated room.
Excellent Stayfrom PatriciaF
Large room, very clean, good internet access.
Everything we saw, our room and the public areas, appeared to be recently updated. The bed was very comfortable.
Beale St two blocks away. Trolley two blocks away. Peabody hotel across the street. Went to see the "duck walk" at 5 PM. Got there at 425 PM, and could barely find a place to sit. At 430, every one was lined up--so as I wasn't going to stand 30 minutes to see the ducks, only saw them swimming in the fountain. My friend who lives in Memphis knew the pianist. He said it is that busy EVERY evening. Second only to Graceland in tourist visits. Wasn't that way the last time I was there in 1986!
Memphis Doubletree disappointsfrom hieCville
Reservations mismanaged (too be fair, at National level). However, National could not fix, and I needed to call all Doubletrees in my itinerary directly.
Lost laundry. Dropped of at 7 AM - promised at 5, 6, and 7 - now laundry closed. I leave at 7 AM tomorrow.
Fridays is the in house restaurant - tired and smelly - especially at breakfast.
Care Line phone (which I sadly needed to use) is programmed to a voice mail system (at least in my room) rather than a live person.
In house WiFi HUGELY slow. This is not an expensive upgrade, and I waste my time here complaining because I can't reach my server.
Vending machines - out of water on floors 10, 9, 8, 7....saw a trend, so I quit.
Fitness room - 1 tread, 1 cross, 1 bike... a weight bench, but no weights. Dark.
Anyway, Room was comfortable, and I am not traveling for pleasure, but certain things should work better for a biz traveler - the internet connection is inexplicable. Food wise, the fabulous Rendez-vous is right across the street. I prefer Club Floors for breakfast, which this property does not have. Did not see pool.
