Dear Mr. Phil C. Please accept my apologies for the very unprofessional welcome by our front desk staff, this should not have happened, and I am very sorry about this. Both members of our front desk team are new staff members and they should not have been on duty without having a fully trained team member with them. I am...

Stayed here for a couple of nights this week with my wife and we both thought this was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. It's a really classy place. The food in the terrace and Tugs was excellent. Breakfast, which was included, was really good. We liked the little touches like the complimentary champagne on arrival and...

My husband and I drove from Chicago to New Orleans, passing through Memphis. Our stay at Harbour Town Square was the best. Amazingly friendly Reception staff, lovely room, amazing food particularly Paulette's restaurant, great views of the sunset over the Mississippi, generally a lovely area which is very clean and picturesque. We visited Graceland nearby which is definitely worth visiting....

We were very impressed with the beautiful River Inn Hotel. From the excellent service at check in with Melvin and the warm welcome from Karl Freidrich the GM, to the personable and professional staff in the Terrace and Paulette's, this is an extremely well-run boutique hotel. The food and drink in both restaurants were delicious. The decor, gorgeous fresh flowers...

This hotel is located in a beautiful spot in Memphis. It is right across the road from the Mississippi River and you can walk over and check out barges, the M bridge and other river sights. If you want to run or walk (or just amble), the green strip of park offers a good opportunity for enjoyment. It's also nice...

We fell in love with the River Inn of Harbor Town several years ago, when our daughter entered Rhodes College as a freshman. The entire experience is one of a small European boutique hotel with utmost attention to every detail. We love the river views, the cosy bathrobes and coffee service in the library, just outside our room each morning....

My wife and I just spent four days in Memphis, meeting our family for the "touristy" things such as Graceland, The Civil Rights Museum, and Beale Street. My hotel choice, after reading many reviews, was the River Inn of Harbor Town. My choice was not wrong. This boutique hotel is located in a planned community known as Harbor Town, just...
