Sheraton Hotel and Downtown Memphis

Wednesday, January 31, 2018
Downtown Memphis

We recently enjoyed a week-long trip to Memphis, TN for business.  While there, we had the pleasure of staying at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel.  The following review will cover the hotel and some of the interesting things to do while in Memphis.

Located at 250 N. Main St in downtown Memphis, this hotel has 19 floors is quite large.  It has a modern feel and is well maintained. The staff were pleasant and accommodating.  Supervisory staff were always on hand and capably resolved any and every situation no matter how minor. There is concierge service and underground parking ramp parking available for a fee.  It is connected to the Cook Convention Center, which shares the parking garage with the hotel.  There is an in-house security staff that monitors the hotel 24/7.  Both the parking and security features are good to know since all downtown area hotels need to take added precautions to help protect guests from unwanted panhandlers and potential crime. 


Elvis Presley's Suite

The amenities at this hotel were very nice.  The rooms were well decorated and no maintenance issues were observed.  The bed and furniture were comfortable and the bathroom and provided toiletries were very good.  The full service restaurant served delicious food, and the café and bar adjacent to the restaurant was also very nice.  Prices were moderate.  Starbucks coffee is served throughout the hotel and also found in each guest room.  The lounge on the 19th floor is available for an additional fee and is well stocked with hot and cold beverages, along with a nice hot breakfast and mini finger foods were dinner.  Fruits are available throughout the day as well.  The lounge offers a pleasant view of the Mississippi River and of the Bass Pro Shops “pyramid” building – a famous Memphis icon.

The Sheraton also has a decent full size pool and workout room for those wanting to exercise or relax in the water.  The common areas were open and pleasant, with a library and reading area, business section with PCs and copy machine, and multiple elevator areas.  Some elevators have a glass side so that you can view the outdoors while it is operating.  A city operated trolley runs a route along N. Main St. and stops right outside the hotel.  Trolley fare is only $1 per person per ride

TravelQuest’s Review:

Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel
Pros:  Has a level of comfort and customer service expected of a high quality hotel. Friendly staff, nice common areas. Food quality and service were above average.  Very pleasant experience.  Excellent full service hotel for the price.

Cons:  Some guests were overheard complaining about the noise level in an adjacent guest room.  Hotel can get busy and check in lines may be long.  Expect to pay extra for concierge parking while off-site parking options are limited/not desirable.
