      Memphis Hotel near Beale St

      by NelsonMa Online Now Jul 23, 2015 at 7:30 PM

      I was booked at the Westin - Beale St but realized today there is no pool. Family of 4 with 17 and 20 yr old boys. Any suggestion on a different hotel within safe walking distance near the action? I'm thinking of Holiday Inn Select or Doubletree on Union Dr. Would these be OK to walk a few blocks back from Beale St in the evening?

    • From a Londoner UK

      by Ladywriter1968 Online Now May 20, 2015 at 11:23 AM

      I dont know if my last text appeared or not, cant find it. I considered visiting memphis but now reading about the crime, some one asked Sun records could they walk around there at night, their reply, not unless you have a hang gun. most of us Londoners dont even own a gun, let alone knowing how to even us or load one up. reading about Graceland also being unsafe I was taken back. When I visited Florida years ago Orlando it was safe there and the part we were in crime seemed very low. about the same as London I guess. If Memphis is heavily policed as I read I would have thought it to be safe then, unless certain roads are left out. We have beggers and drug addicts in London but they are not running around with guns and rarely do we get shootings here. I wanted to visit memphis some time for the music. Now I feel that I would be extremely naive going there not knowing what to expect.

    • Memphis - Best Music Museum?

      by mommio92 Online Now May 13, 2015 at 7:14 AM

      Hi! Will be in Memphis for a day and a half in June. Which music museum is the best, Sun Records, Stax Museum, or Rock 'n Soul Museum? Will probably only have time for one. Also, is the Art Museum a must-see? Not really interested in Graceland, but will do Beale Street. Are staying at the Peabody with the ducks! Thanks!

      Good places to stay in Memphis

      by llauraa Online Now Jan 6, 2015 at 10:58 PM

      Hi all, 2 of us coming to Memphis 1 April 15 for 2 or 3 nights. Want to be close to downtown and either walking distance or short cab to Beale Street so we can do the Beale St music thing. Budget is up to 150-200 USD prepared to go higher if necessary given its close to Easter so we have room to move on $$. Most importantly though want to know good areas to stay re: convenience to attractions (won't have a car) and safety / not too rowdy

      We were considering accommodation in North Belvedere Blvd. Is this a good area to stay?
      Recommendations and also tips on places to go for live music and good eats highly appreciated

      We are staying at Holiday Inn, 160 Union ave.

      We get in on AMTRAK at 10 pm at night. I am quite scared about getting a cab, quickly, to the Holiday Inn, and not appearing as vulnerable we are, two elderly foreign tourists, with baggage. Anyone caught a cab, late at night, from the station?

    • Unsafe intersections / streets in Memphis

      by sladamo Online Now Aug 5, 2014 at 9:42 AM

      Hi. We're coming to Memphis in October for a wedding and staying at the Econo Lodge downtown to save some bucks. Our friends are staying at the Peabody which is only 0.4 blocks away. Should we be worried about staying at the Econo Lodge? Are there specific intersections or areas (west of X and south of Y) that we should be careful to avoid? We will be walking around at night to some extent since they'll be doing some bar hopping after the reception on Beale street, and we'll have to make it back to our hotel somehow.

      Never been to Memphis before, but we're from Chicago, so we know about "dangers" of big cities. But if there's some specific, easy advice you can give about the hotel or specific intersections, that'd be really helpful.

    • Moving to Memphis for college

      by Amatseu Online Now Jul 9, 2014 at 10:13 PM

      Hi! I'm moving to Memphis for college (Memphis College of Art) and I use a bicycle for transportation. I need a job to continue attending school and have seen on google maps there are tons around that area. However, what areas should I avoid? I'm assuming that if it's not safe to walk, it's not safe to bike. I'm from St. Louis so I've seen my fair share of criminal activity but even so, I'm a little nervous about finding myself lost in the wrong place. Got any advice?

      Walk to Memphis central station early morning

      by JohanW Online Now Jun 3, 2014 at 1:33 PM

      I´m planning to travel with Amtrak 06.50 AM this summer (I´m going to New Orleans). The hotel is just a few blocks from the central station. Maybe 15 minutes walk.

      Is it safe to walk to in these parts of the city an early morning at 6 AM? Or should I take a cab?

      At this time of day in a city, sometimes strange people are awake... Except strange people like me ;)
