Wish we could have stayed longer!

My husband and I were down for the weekend preceding a conference at the Peabody, which didn't have a room available on Friday. We thought we'd try the River Inn to experience a different part of town, and were so glad we did! The hotel was beautiful, the service was excellent, and no one should miss Paulette's popovers, dessert crepes, or warm breakfast croissants! I also used the gym, located at the end of a residential block, which was great. They are renovating their rooftop bar, so we weren't able to have a drink there, but did check out the space and suspect it will be wonderful when finished. We walked just a few blocks and took the trolley to downtown for $1, which was also fun.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
This hotel was all that we hoped for and more... Clean , quiet and safe. The hotel staff were all exceptionally gracious and helpful but the gourmet breakfast Monday morning was the best! If we return to Memphis, we will definitely stay here again!

This hotel was very enjoyable. It was in a neighborhood setting and did not have a large city feel.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We really enjoyed our experience here. We had a great view of the Mississippi River, were able to take a walk in the park along the river and enjoyed the residential like setting. The breakfast, included in the cost of the room, was wonderful with great service. It's location was easy to find and was just a short distance to Beale St.

A wonderful place to stay and located in an excellent community

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We loved our stay at the River Inn of Harbor Town. From the moment we checked in, we received lots of concierge attention and service. A welcoming glass of wine as we arrived onsite. The hotel has only 28 guest rooms and the accomodations were all top notch. The room was beautiful with a four-poster bed and deep luxurious bathtub. The view was of the gorgeous riverwalk and well groomed grounds. Several onsite restaurants and watering holes made Harbor Town a place we didn't want to leave. After an early morning run along the river, we spent the morning eating a delicious, full-service gourmet breakfast at Paulette's, on of the onsite eateries. The food was awesome! We plan to return at our earliest chance and to bring our family with us!

A Great Hotel in Downtown Memphis

I highly recommend the River Inn of Harbor Town located on Mud Island in Memphis. The service was excellent and the hotel is lovely. It has a European feel to it, with some nice "extra" touches, such as a complimentary glass of wine or champagne at check-in, as well as chocolates and port turndown service. Also, a FANTASTIC gourmet breakfast at their fine restaurant, Currents, the next morning. Next time (and there will be a next time) we will have dinner at that restaurant. It's very close to Beale St. I recommend letting the front desk arrange for a cab so there is no issue with parking or driving back. This hotel stay was to celebrate a very special birthday, and I could not have been more pleased. Very romantic and elegant.

Great experience

We've just returned from a viwit to the River Inn of Harbor Town on Mud Island, Memphis, TN. This boutique hotel is fantastic. We were there for 3 nights to celebrate a special birthday. We could not have asked for a better experience. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was great. We had a wonderful view of the Mississippi River. Can't wait to visit again.
