Rated 5 out of 5 by RockerSW Best time ever
I loved staying at the Westin and will do so ever chance I get. After a long day of activities, the rooms have that fantastic relaxing scent, the beds are so comfortable; staff is welcoming and the facility is safe and secure. Proximity to attractions - fabulous. We really got to enjoy the downtown area. Our breakfast server was especially attentive. Will we return?

Great location for access to Beale Street/Memphis in May! The bed was very comfy! Tub & dual-head shower in bathroom, separately. Water gets very hot, which gets a big thumbs up! However, for the price, there needs to be a refrigerator with space for personal stuff instead of being filled with overpriced items & food on the menu is a bit overpriced! Overall, great hotel!

Rated 3 out of 5 by spencer Awesome place to stay but had some major wifi issues
Its an awesome place to stay in downtown. the location is great and has lot of options to eat around. The paid internet works great but being a platinum SPG member you are issued a coupons codes for internet that never works. you got be on call for with the tech support every time to get it fixed. Give your self an hour to make sure your Wifi issues are resolved.

Had to ask for housekeeping every day. When they finally did come they
left no toiletries
left no toilet paper
did not empty trash
did not vacuum
floors in bathroom were disgusting
bed had dirty sheets and rest of bedding
black hairs in bed
we said something at the front desk, but they chose not to do anything about it. I would NEVER stay at this hotel again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary415 Wonderful Staff
Hello, I recently stayed at your hotel and found all of your staff to be warm, helpful, and wonderful. I rated you a 9 out of 10 because there was 1 flaw, the 3am wake up call I requested (and reconfirmed with the front desk) never came. Thank goodness I woke up on my own and got to the airport on time. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VisittoMemphis Lovely hotel. HOWEVER...
So many positives: Great Location, Clean Room, Nice Restaurant, Friendly Staff. HOWEVER, I have a huge problem with the reservation/billing process. We paid in full, in advance, for our three-night stay. Upon check-in, they placed a "hold" on my credit card for $275.80 for "incidentals". This amount was not released from my card for a full five days. Not sure how we could have spent $275.80 in incidentals, even if we had consumed the entire contents of the mini bar and then stolen the robes. (Just kidding!) Not pleased and probably won't return. We travel to Memphis several times a year and have never had this happen at the other downtown hotels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fooddoc Do not stay here
Despite knowing that this was a busy time (NBA finals), the hotel was understaffed and made us wait for hours to get into rooms that had been reserved three months prior. They were unhelpful and told us we just had to wait. This is a terrible way to run a business particularly when it relies on tourism in this area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMAKA4 Wonderful Vacation Stay
This was a vacation getaway for my Mom and myself. She had never been to Memphis and wanted the full tourist experience. The ENTIRE staff was professional, friendly and very accommodating. Gregesha at the front desk really made our stay very comfortable by ensuring that we received A+ service each time we made a request about what to do, see and eat in the area. She went above and beyond our expectations and always greeted us with a friendly smile. I have traveled extensively and stayed at many top tier hotels and resorts , but this has been one of the most memorable experiences thus far. Thanks again and continue to bring smiles and comfort to your guests.

Perfect location. Outstanding staff and service. Everyone went out of their way for us from the check in counter to the restaurant hostess and bartender. Our room was clean but there is opportunity for some facility upkeep in the rooms. The carpet was stained and the bathroom grout was stained as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denise236 A step above Westin Peachtree
The management and staff here went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable with our room and our stay. I only have my stays over the last 8 years at the Westin Peachtree to compare to, needless to say there is no comparison. The Westin on Beale Street was a refreshing change.

We loved the location! The bathroom was great. It was roomy. We were very pleased that we could not hear any noise from Beale street partying. The carpets could use a cleaning in the room that we had. Free wifi would also be nice based on the room cost. But overall we really enjoyed our stay

Front desk is always understaffed, less than helpful.
Toilet did not flush. Toiletries were not fresh -- both called in to question if housekeeping had done their job. Mouth wash was open, half empty -- yuk!
Complementary coffee was decaf only, no cream.
Staff and mngmnt just don't care.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Greg Disappointed...
I have stayed at this hotel before but this time it was disappointing. Service was poor. I checked in at 11pm, the Internet wouldn't connect and I needed to prepare for a meeting so I called the front desk 3 times but no one ever answered. I called down early the next morning because it still wouldn't connect. I got put on hold FOREVER and they finally just gave me a voucher code. That night I had reservations in the restaurant. My date and I both ordered the none in ribeye. They brought us both small filets. When I asked why, they said they'd run out of the ribeye due to it being Valentine's day and that's all they had left. They didn't inform us, offer an alternative, ask if we'd like something else, nothing. In fact the restaurant manager said "that's all we have left" and walked off. I'm sure the staff was tired from working a busy Valentines night but still. Overall, the staff seem very apathetic. Other than the bell staff (very friendly), the rest of the staff seemed apathetic. I'll be staying elsewhere from now on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 3goldengirls Hotel Room Service - Unacceptable
We had to sleep in a dirty room one night during our stay, and no one (night manager) would take responsibility in rectifying it. The problem became the resident's fault instead of housekeeping (hotel). We were not compensated for it - even though we asked.

There was a lot of hustle and bustle when we arrived for a short overnight on our way west by car. We enjoyed the motorcycles, nighttime activity on the main strip, and then a pleasant singer and servers in the hotel bar. It was a nice rest stop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Traveler4444 Needs improvement
Checking in took longer than it should have because there was only one attendant working the front desk. I also had to wait for the only valet to return from parking another car. I was not acknowledged as SPG gold until informing the attendant, and then was told that no upgraded rooms were available.
The hotel's lobby and common areas are nicely designed and stylish. The gym is large and has a nice view, although it is in need of some maintenance and upgrades (for instance, the televisions on two of the three ellipticals did not work).
My room was stylish but, like other parts of the hotel, needs a bit of maintenance and better housekeeping. Furniture and fixtures appear worn: for instance, the armchair had a noticeable ink stain and the electric outlet on the bedside lamp did not work. Poor housekeeping was a significant issue: two of my towels had stains, there was standing water in the ice bucket, there was mold and discolored grout along the perimeter of the shower, etc. This room just wasn't up to the standard I would expect from a relatively new Westin property.
The on-site restaurant, Bleu, was acceptable but not amazing. Service at dinner was attentive and friendly, and my starter salad was delicious. My salmon entree was just plain strange. The menu reads of a chef trying too hard to be original without the skills to execute it.
Overall, a fine hotel for one night of sleep while on business, but not for much else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by exhausted1 Memphis Beale a terrible representative of Westin
The room has no insulation at all. We could hear the conversations of the people next door clearly. At 2:00 a.m. we could hear next door neighbors talking even down to their yawns. We reserved a room with 2 QUEEN sized beds. When we arrived, hotel was sold out and did not have a room with 2 queen beds available. Since I am not a high ranking member of loyalty club, they gave me a disabled room that had 2 very small double beds. Front desk said nothing about this when checking in, they thought they would just "slip it by me", I guess. Later, I complained and asked why the hotel sold room types beyond the number that were available. I was told that they continue to sell rooms regardless of type until they are sold out. It is obvious that they always do this all the time and if you complain they offer you a measly compensation such as removing your valet fees or something. Bottom line is if you book this particular hotel, DON'T count on any specific room type no matter how many people in your party. A very poor representation of what a Westin hotel is supposed to be.

The best part about this hotel is the location. It's close to Beale Street as well as many other fun restaurants and bars. The heavenly bed was also amazing after traveling for hours. It was clean, modern and comfy!

I had an issue at check in and found that the ladies at the front desk couldn't have cared less that their issue with not having my room ready caused me to be late for my plans.

This Westin is not up to the same standards as other Westin properties.
Beware, the deal one makes on the phone while booking is not honored at the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SSSFO Very clean and comfortable rooms
Wonderful and pleasant stay. Nice comfortable room with great HVAC. Great hospitality staff. Nice restaurant with good food. Business center is quite adequate for travelers. Great value in many ways. Need upgrade to wi-fi as 250k up and down is too slow. Need a doorman to help. Dialing zero for operator will need to wait as they are always busy. Yes, short staff for a sell out hotel is not acceptable. No one at the front desk after hours. Depending on your video camera to watch your lobby makes me nervous. Prefers a less noisy vacuum in the hallway. Need HD on your flat screen TV. Golf channel will also help. I'll come back again every year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rubin Staffing Shortages
It appeared from the moment we arrived that there were not enough staff on duty.
1 person at the front who appeared to be the Valet, Bellman, Concierge and Doorman.
2. Only one person at the front desk who was rushed
That evening we went to the lobby bar to enjoy a drink before dinner. There was no barman, he appeared after 20 minutes. no apology. Two other clients also waiting for refills. You are losing revenue as well as not fulfilling guest expectations from a $500.00 one night stay.
Both lunch and diner were nice experiences. Staff were great and the food was well prepared, fresh and interesting. The room was clean and well maintained.
