Rated 4 out of 5 by DXM55 Good but not great!
I was disappointed by a number of small details during my stay. There was no one at the check-in desk when I arrived. Had to wait 3-4 minutes. The staff was unable to meet my request because they were not fully trained on the software, my express checkout took 15 minutes and two staff persons to make corrections on my bill. The hotel maid service was lacking in some areas although the room was clean, they missed small details.

Carpeting was disgusting and should be ripped out. Stain on comforter was disturbing and the mold in the bathroom nasty.
Room was run down and dirty.

Rated 3 out of 5 Great location!
A great location directly behind Beale St. And across the street from the FedEx Forum. Rooms are beginning to get a little tired, however the lobby area is a great place to meet with friends and enjoy the bar before going to the game across the street.
The restaurant is good for breakfast, however the room service has room for improvement. Tried dessert twice, on two different occasions and it was horrible.
Check in desk staff remembered me and my Starwood status upon the third check in over the course of a month....good touch.
Need a code for Internet...get a few upon check-in as inevitably it will go out on you and you'll have to call for another if you don't get upon check in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MicheleM2012 Not that bad, but not that great..
This is a below average Westin, but not quite as terrible as some others are writing. It definitely is showing it's age....I did not have an issue getting my room (but arrived after 8pm) however even though I asked, they didn't offer me an upgrade. Even worse, I was put into an accessible room on a low floor while others in my party without SPG status were in a regular room on a higher floor. Room service was late, and when I called down didn't get any response. HOWEVER I did tweet to @Westin and that did the trick.
Fitness center was good!
I'd stay here again if I have to come back to the area, but wouldn't recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by aloha NOT as Important
When we arrived, the Valet gentleman marshaled us so far forward that we were no longer under the awning (it was raining). He said he did this to make room for others. We had driven 8 hours so I had some sorting to do in the car, once I was done there was still no one to help with the luggage. I grabbed a cart and began loading my stuff on to it. The Valet told us we could not use a cart since they had other guests arriving that have a contract with the hotel. I told him I did too, it is called a reservation. He then took the cart into the lobby and emptied it of my items. I ask him about this and he said "the other people are more important than you." I took the rest of my stuff into the lobby and checked in. I talked to the Manager (Chris?) and he said all the right things, apologized and all. He said he would take the Valet charge off my bill. That didn't happen, we were charged. I am sure I could have questioned it again and gotten it removed, but I was done discussing things. We figured out the "More Important" guests they had were the visiting team playing the Memphis Grizzlies that night.
The room was nice, it could have been cleaner but was not nasty. The toilet seat was not tight, it swiveled.
Bottom line: We will NEVER go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tlam Wonderful experience
I recently stayed at the Westin Beale for the BSMF. My companion and I arrived early from Atlanta via plane to rain and unseasonably cool weather. The staff was gracious and friendly and the good customer service was punctuated by Amanda upgrading us to a suite after our room was not ready by our scheduled check in time. The great location and the beautiful facility added to our wonderful Westin experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeff72 This hotel needs a new housekeeping staff
I have stayed at previous Westins and know the company as a hold strives for excellence. Unfortunately, Memphis is a poor example. When we arrived rooms were not ready and when we got to ours, housekeeping was still cleaning rooms on our floor. There was a bag of chips that someone had spilt in the bar sitting area. No one ever came to clean the mess up that clearly had been there for awhile. The lobby bathroom was filthy. Toilets were needing flushed and floor had trash everywhere. The elevators were dirty. My room was clean. I'm not sure the floor had been vacuumed but it was fine for me. Valet was on their game. Extremely nice people. The front desk was a little to be desired. Only one person was checking in at 2:00.
