Rated 4 out of 5 by FunkyElvis Exceeded my expectations
I stayed at another Westin on the East Coast last summer where my reservations and room type got very screwed up. Needless to say, my expectations were low for staying at another Westin.
What a surprise.
The entire staff, especially Amanda at the front desk who ran off driving directions to several places of interest in Memphis for us and let me try out a Gibson ES 175 from their high end display case in the lobby--the Gibson factory across the street--was amazing. The room was perfect overlooking Beale and we even got a really nice breakfast complete with omelet station and a complimentary Wall Street Journal and USA Today. And the location is perfect. I have stayed at a much more expensive hotel up the street before and would prefer the Beale Westin to it -- never thought I would say that.
There were some minor distractions -- a nut was missing from the fancy ice bucket in our room and the same room service tray stayed in the hallway the whole time during our overnight stay.
I would gladly trade off these imperfections for the location and perks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peep Good but not exceptional
On the whole the visit was fine, but lack of attention to detail was annoying, silly things like the lack of bathroom products, no shower gel or shampoo.
Bar opening hours were limited.
However when open found Bar staff fun and engaging

We were very dissatisfied with our stay in the Westin. We were supposed to check in at 4 pm and when we arrived we were told the hotel was running behind and they could take our bags and call us when the room was ready. After an hour and a half of waiting we still have not heard anything. I went back up to the desk and they said there were 4 people ahead of us. We had planned on changing and then going to eat before the Grizzlies game. That didn’t happen. We went somewhere close by to eat then to the game. The game ended and we still did not receive a call. This was around 9-10 pm. We went back up to the desk and they finally gave us a room. We go up to our room and it’s a one bed room suite with a random rolling single bed in the middle of the den area. We had booked a two bedroom queen since there was 4 of us staying; therefore, one of us had to sleep on a pull out coach. We were not informed of this and no apologies were given. I have never been so dissatisfied with a hotel experience. I would not advise going to the Westin during a busy weekend.

The Westin is a super hotel in the best Downtown Memphis location. One block from Beale St. Across the street from FedEx Forum, the Rock & Soul Museum and a free shuttle to Graceland and Sun Studios. Food and music everywhere!

Rated 3 out of 5 by tps12 Don't drink at the bar!!
Hotel is great but the bartender ripped me off. $56.00 FOR 2 DRINKS?? Kettle 1 & Jack Daniels. I've never had a more expensive drink anywhere! I don't care if they were doubles...they looked like singles. I'm not happy with that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stegen Great hotel close to the FedEx Forum
We stayed at the Westin to attend the Grizzlies/Lakers game & it was great! We just walked across the street into the Forum -no parking issues, etc. The room was very nice & clean - especially liked the separate tub & shower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by glenn5 Fantastic Location, great staff
The staff was wonderful. Any issue was addressed immediately. My only complaint was the fact that WiFi was not offered free in all rooms - everyone does that now!! We need that in today's world

This hotel is only steps away from the FedEx Forum, the Rock and Soul Museum and Beale Street.
The rooms are large and very clean. The staff is very attentive.
One word of caution, the drinks at the lobby bar are very pricey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Morris7 Totally Unsatisfied
We stayed at this hotel because of the location next to the FedEx Forum. Big Mistake! Check In is a 3 p.m. and we arrived at 5 p.m. Upon arrival the hotel staff, whom was very rude, informed us that our room was not ready because it was being cleaned. Apparently a basketball team had stayed the previous night and they didn't leave until after checkout time. My family and other families had to wait in the lobby until our rooms were ready. Keep in thought that the game started at 7 p.m. and we didn't get into our rooms until 7 p.m.! We drove for 4 hours to get to Memphis and then had to sit for more to wait on our room! Then the hotel clerk was rude, I cannot remember her name but I will be reporting her again! I talked to a supervisor and he said he would "try" to give us a discount on our rooms because we had 3 rooms. I learned the next morning that we could not receive a discount and that the staff should have offered us free breakfast or something! I am totally disgusted and disappointed with this hotel! My family, friends, and I will definitely not be staying here again!

I called the front desk and concierage desk multiple times over a 30 minute period with no response. I also called the Starwood 1-800 number and was put on hold. Extremely poor service all the way around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ben523 Not Clean
I am a frequent traveler and often stay at Starwood properties throughout the U.S. Like most of their Westin properties, this hotel is relatively new, well maintained and in a good location. However, my experience at this hotel was one of the worst that I have ever had. The rooms were not clean and the staff was often unhelpful. When I checked into the first room, there was a towel hanging on the rack with makeup stains on it. Clearly, it had not been changed. I asked for anther room and was given a comparable room on another floor. I didn't inspect the bed before going to sleep. When I woke up the following morning I found a strange sock in the bed which leaves me to believe that the sheets were never changed. I mentioned this to the staff the following morning and they acted as if they could care less. In addition to the unclean rooms and the unhelpful front desk staff, I had breakfast at the onsite restaurant the following morning. The service was slow and the food was mediocre. There were no other customers in the restaurant and it still took nearly 30 minutes to get my food.

THE ROOMS WERE GREAT AND REASONABLY PRICED ,THE VALET PARKING MADE IT SO EASY IN A BUSY TIME. THE FOOD AT BLEU WAS GREAT AND PRICED RIGHT , AND YOU ARE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL BEAL STREET HAS TO OFFER.

Our group had three rooms and none of them every got comfortably cool. The staff overcharged us for parking and a water that was never touched. There was an ice machine but no coke machine on our floor.

Great staff (especially Richard at the front desk) and a great location. Rooms need new carpet and new towels and could have been a little cleaner. But overall, a much better experience than last time.

Checked in at 1:30 pm. Along with several dozen others, did not get a room until 6 pm. No communication from the staff and no offers for any compensation whatsoever. Will never stay at a Westin again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wannfamily00 This hotel is one of the best downtown.
We live in town but our choice of hotels when we do decide to stay downtown Memphis is Westin. Would recommend this to anyone. The beds are heavenly divine and the rooms have all the modern features.

Being close to Beale St. is a plus, but what keeps me coming back is the Staff. They are helpful from the time you check in until the time you leave, and all this with a SMILE on their faces. :-)

Had troubles with only one operational elevator. Not good for a hotel this size. Long waits and people crammed in as a result.
Rooms were great. Bathroom excellent with separate shower and tub.

I always felt Wetstin's were top tier hotels but when you pay for steak and get hamburger it's very disappointing. No hand towels or wash cloths in the room. Look like it needed to be vacuumed .
