This lovely Southern city is more than just the home of Graceland, as guests at our Holiday Inn® Memphis hotels soon discover. Even so, Elvis’ mansion is the must-see attraction. The over-the-top décor certainly isn’t to everyone’s tastes but the exhibits are truly touching, especially Presley’s personal belongings. Get there early to beat the crowds.
Away from the kitsch appeal of Graceland, Memphis offers many memorable moments. For starters, there’s the legendary Southern hospitality – something you experience the second you walk through the door of your Memphis hotel.
Our Memphis hotels are conveniently located for the attractions. Make sure you visit Beale Street, the birthplace of the blues, and take a tour of Sun Studios where Elvis cut his first record, and numerous recording artists including Johnny Cash and B.B. King started their musical careers.
For a more thought-provoking experience, visit the National Civil Rights Museum, built on the site of the hotel where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. If you have time, take a day trip from your Memphis hotel along the legendary Highway 61 to the Mississippi Delta and the Delta town of Clarksdale, right in the heart of Tennessee Williams country.
All of our Memphis hotels have quality restaurants. If you dine out, try some Southern BBQ ribs or deep fried catfish – both local specialities. Don’t miss the bizarre site of the Peabody ducks making their daily red carpet entrance at 11 a.m. in the Peabody Memphis Hotel. Who said Elvis was the only tourist attraction in town?
