There is a great range of hotels in Memphis to choose from...
Budget hotels and motels dominate the street scene on the roads in and out of the city, though you can find cheap hotels in Memphis just about anywhere, with an excellent variety of mid-range accommodation also peppering the entire city.
To make the most of your time in Memphis, however (and to avoid driving or using public transport to get anywhere), the best place to stay is in the Downtown district. Here you are within a reasonable walking distance of many of the sights and you can book Memphis hotels of every variety, from good-value chain accommodation to stand-out luxury hotels that epitomise southern hospitality and old-time grandeur.
The only exception to the Downtown rule is Graceland, which is a 20-minute drive south of the city. If you insist on being close to the Elvis Presley estate you can book hotels in the vicinity, but you might be stuck for great places to eat, drink and recount your daytime memories of Memphis of an evening. Car hire is available if you just want to pay Graceland a visit but stay in the city centre.
Big brands are easily found across the city, from traditional hotels to motels. Check out offerings from Best Western, Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, La Quinta, Marriott, Super8, Hilton, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, DoubleTree, Days Inn, Econo Lodge and Comfort Inn.
