Rated 5 out of 5 by HGArnold Can't beat the location!
This hotel is located right in the middle of all the action in downtown Memphis! It's one block from Beale Street and right next to theFedEx Arena. We could walk to a lot of things and really take in the area. The restaurant is really nice and the staff are incredibly helpful. We will be back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pamm Restaurant unsatisfactory
There was a lot of confusion at front desk about free weekend breakfast.
Waiter was awful. Poor service. Took over 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee. Eggs and hash browns were stone cold. Toast was cold. Server appeared inexperienced.
Bathroom grout appeared to have mold.
Bed was comfortable

Rated 3 out of 5 by SAMCO83 Great location - Good quality
Just a block from all the action on Beale St. and right across from the FedEx Arena. Great location to see all the sites from.
Little overpriced bar inside hotel.
Room was very nice but cleaning staff did not leave coffee 2 of 4 mornings and daily cleaning was very average - below average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by biosales This is a great Westin with great staff and wonderful rooms!!
What a classic Westin experience!! The upgrade to a suite facing the FedEx Forum was a dream come true!! The room and bathroom were so cool that we could hardly sleep!!! The staff was great and every detail was perfect! This is why I work so hard to keep a Platinum status!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dee721 Great relaxation hotel!
This hotel is excellent for a relaxing get away. The staff are courteous, accommodating and will go out of the way to make you comfortable. I loved walking through the front door and immediately fall into the relaxing aroma of white tea! Great location, I throughly enjoyed my stay!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cmu82 Poor Service
My wife and I recently stayed the night here to meet up with friends downtown. We arrived at 5pm and were told our room was not ready because the basketball team had just checked out and they were still in the process of cleaning. They promptly handed us a $40 voucher for the bar and took our suitcase to the back. We walked over to the bar and ordered 3 drinks that totaled $38 (wonderful prices right?!) We went outside with our friends while we waited to be called. Finally, at 6:15pm, they called and said our room was ready and our bags were waiting for us there. We went and got the room key then went upstairs. After walking in the room, we realized our bags weren't there. I had to go back downstairs to locate the suitcase and bring it up to our room. The ice machine didn't work on the 3rd floor, so we were told to use the one on 4, 6, or 8. Also, we stayed on Daylight Savings night and still had to make the 12 o'clock check out. We've stayed at many hotels downtown, but this will be our last at the Westin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rufus43 Great location for downtown and Beale Street.
The staff was sensitive to our needs and very helpful. Wheelchair accessibility was very good. Smaller furniture would have made it easier to get around. The restaurant food was good. Very relaxing and convenient. We would stay here again. Great location for strolling downtown.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MM14 Great Location, Somewhat Expensive, Good Staff
The hotel is somewhat pricey; however, it is very well located and the staff is mostly great. I spend over 100 nights a year at Starwood Properties and can say the staff is good at this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for many reasons including the location, food and staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigcat20 Great place to stay for Beale,Orpheum,FedEx Forum events
This was our first stay at the Westin. We wanted a hotel near the Orpheum and Beale Street. The Westin fit the bill with comfort and convenience. We were able to walk to the Orpheum then back to Beale. We really enjoyed bleu. The food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dave1778 Parking and Cleaning
Front desk did not accurately describe parking charges when they talked me in to actually paying more than the parking deck charged.
Also after returning from a long day around 6:30 in the evening we returned to an unclean room and had to wait for housekeeper to clean it.

Very accomadators, beautiful and clean. The beds were amazing, Bleu restaurant has the best lobster Mac and cheese. The only drawback was you have to pay for Internet, in this day and age, that should be included. Beale street was littered when I was walking in the morning,

I just stayed here. The room clealiness was terrible, staff was bad.
Bathrooms were very dirty. The room service was exorbitant, and finally when the food arrived it wasn't any good - it was missing stuff. I had to make two more call before I got everything that I paid for!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MemphisRunner Memphis Marathon Weekend
This is the third year we've stayed at the Westin for the Memphis Marathon Weekend. For our purposes, it's been perfect.
Many of our friends run the Grizzly House 5k, and the hotel is right on the starting line. It's an easy post-race walk from the finish lines. Considering that, it doesn't seem like you could go wrong with a Starwood Hotel right in downtown.
However--at check in, there is fresh fruit in the lobby, but the next morning, that banana is $1.00. last year, I was able to book a room with star points, this year not only could I not use points, or cash and points, they tried to double my rate at the last minute. Even though my room wasn't ready until about 8:30 on check-in night, they wouldn't agree to allow me an hour's late checkout to shower after our races. They certainly didn't care that I was an SPG member.
All of these issues may be small things to most, but I stay Starwood to avoid issues.
All in all, for the price and attitude, I'll probably be looking at other downtown hotels for next years race.

This is a great hotel with a wonderful location right off Beale Street. The restaurant is wonderful and willing to change the menu to meet your needs. The one thing they do not have is an Executive Lounge for their Platinum members, but other than that is is A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clyde361 Amazing location, excellent rooms and staff!
Best location to Beale St. Got an upgrade to corner room with perfect view. Room great. Staff great. Call to service excellent. Would stay here every time in Memphis. Not any better.
Small cons: valet parking backs up due to small space. Clean behind tv on mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tags81 Great Location...fabulous staff
Maybe it's just the "southern hospitality", but we couldn't have been treated more warmly by each and every member of the staff we encountered. Definitely a place to stay.....bear in mind you might ask for a room NOT facing Beale street if you're not a night owl.

I'm a platinum guest who travels to this hotel very often. Outside of the POOR PLATINUM RECOGNITION the room I was provided was dirty. The bathroom had mildew, there were stains on the carpet and curtains, and worst all the front desk manager was least helpful.

This hotel went above and beyond honoring every request we made. Our event was planned in advance however all of the staff went to great lengths to allow us some impromptu requests. Every staff member we encountered made us feel extremely welcome and important!

The staff here was welcoming and gave us great suggestions for dinner. The rooms were very nice, and the beds were extremely comfortable. When we got to the room our toilet was not running well, but they sent someone up immediately and fixed it. A great stay!

Caveat: When I arrived, I was surprised to be upgraded to a "presidential suite." Wow. It knocked my socks off. Super-comfortable and luxurious. (I'm not normally a "Presidential Suite" kind of guy.)
Staff was also helpful and friendly.
Great stay overall!

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

Rated 2 out of 5 by HONESTAYE Lack of status recognition
I use to frequently stay at this facility. In the past 3 months I haven't been upgraded once nor received a thank you for being Platinum and have the Westin be my choice hotel in Memphis. I do receive the generic thank you email from the general manager.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gina22 This hotel is very loud!
I wish the staff would have recognized that we were traveling with children. The room was great! but the music on Beale St., was too loud! It stopped around 2 am. I found out the next morning that the rooms on the other side of the hotel are quieter.

Rooms are quite large and so nice to have a separate tub and glass shower! Housekeeping will clean your room no matter what time you leave, which is nice. (we are late sleepers).
Added feature - Starbucks is right next door just a few steps outside.

We will recommend you to our group for next year : )
Thanks for the hospitality!

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.
