Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn Select Downtown Hotel
Good Deal for the Pricefrom AA-Platinum
On the down side, the windows were sealed, which meant that I had to rely on A/C at all times. In addition, the Hotel is half a block from Autozone Field (Home of the AAA Memphis Redbirds). After the game they have fireworks an concert, which can be very busy. The room had a very nice chair and ottoman, but since the TV did not move, it was hard to see from anywhere other than the bed.
As with many hotels, they tell you that your USA Today is included in your room rate. What they do not tell you is that you can opt out for a savings of $0.75/day. Also, if you are a Priority Club member, a continental breakfast is included (since it is free to join, there is no reason not to join). They are supposed ot inform you of this at check-in, but they seem to be negligent in many cases.
Overall, though, this is a good, centrally located hotel and I would stay here again
Good Location, Bad Foodfrom Platna
The hotel is right across the street from the Peabody and both bars close at 11pm. But Huey's is right next to it and it's open until about 4am. It's about 2 blocks away from Beale Street. This is not far, but in Memphis the drug addicts or drunks come right up to you if they see you are out of town and ask for money. If you are going to be walking back from Beale after 12am, just pay attention that no one follows you. Besides that, the city is completely walkable (down to the waterfront, the Memphis Belle, etc) or you can take the trolley.
The staff is pretty nice and helpful. There is a computer with an internet connection near the lobby but you cannot rely on it. The internet did not work for a full day while I was there. Also, even if you are a smoker I would not recommend that you pick a smoking floor because unlike other hotels, it stinks. Pick a non-smoking floor and go outside, you'll sleep better. The rooms include a Nintendo GameCube controller, but the games they offer are not the very popular ones (not that it matters if you're coming with kids). They do have an outdoor pool, but the water was ice cold so we could only stay in it for a little while.
All and all, this is an average hotel in a nice location. If you can save a lot of money on ths one versus the Peabody or Hampton Inn (which is right on Beale St) then book it.
Great hotel, close to everything!from A TripAdvisor Member
The location of the hotel is great, across the street from the Peabody, and just a short walk to Beale Street.
We chose a cityview room, which I highly recommend. If traffic noise bothers you, I suggest that you request a room on a higher floor due to the traffic on Union. Our room was very clean and well kept. The bathroom was small, definitely very crowded with two adults getting ready at the same time.
Although pricey, the breakfast buffet was reasonably good. There are several hot choices, as well as yogurt, pastries, etc on the cold side. Wait service in the Union Cafe was outstanding.
One suggestion, if you use the parking garage attached to the hotel, take the stairs up to the 4th floor, then use the guest elevator up to your room. The elevator in the parking garage is the freight elevator, so you compete with housekeeping, etc. for its service.
Better than expectedfrom hackjenn

We thought it was Great!from alliebdive
Our room was standard HI - 2 queen beds, spacious enough, cool, clean. Not 5* but completely acceptable and very comfortable. Location would be hard to beat. Right across the street from the Peabody, 2 blocks from Beale Street and 5 minutes from the Rock and Soul Museum. You can't beat this location imo - close enough but also far enough from the noise.
We had the Music City Package which gave us Graceland Tours, Museum entry , breakfasts and free parking, an Elvis clock and a music cd. Good value. I'd booked it in advance - and there were no problems at all.
The breakfast was very good indeed - an excellent buffet with super offerings. The service was very helpful and friendly. The outdoor pool was welcome in the summer heat - it's small, but many hotels don't have one at all so....
Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again and stay here.
Great central locationfrom Buddie-Paisley
Hotel is very well finished. Good pool for a city centre and not heavily used. Quite a bit of business traffic as well as seasoned travellers. When hotel is busy parking, that costs $10 a day, can very very challenging! Reception staff not as warm as other hotels in the Holiday Inn group. Breakfast is available in the downstairs restaurtant and offers a good buffet selection. I think it's a little expensive but that's just me. Our sons stuck to cereals but didn't really find what was on offer to their liking.
If you want a centrally located hotel where you can pop across to see the Peabody Ducks this is it.
Worth the Moneyfrom sesm
The rooms are clean and appear updated, the resturaunt is OK and the halls are dingy. For the money, I would stay there again.
First Time In Memphisfrom hq014
Again it's in an ideal location for downtown Memphis. We wouldn't stay there again...
Top Local Tips for Memphis
Beale Street Don't miss the free bands playing in the park on Beale Steet. You can buy beer anywhere on the street and sit in the park and listen to the band. They usually play until 10PM. This is also great for families who want to experience Beale St.
Civil Rights Museum Free on Monday 3.00pm
Graceland If you have a car, drive to gracelands as opposed to an organised tour from the hotel. It cuts down your wait time. Tour buses you to a depot transfers you to graceland and then you join everyone else!
