Rooms & Rates
Housed in the historic Tennessee Trust Bank Building, the AAA 4-Diamond Madison Hotel features a sleek look, swanky interiors and a great rooftop lounge in America’s "Blues City." With 70 rooms and 40 suites, the hotel's Southern hospitality "comes in the form of gracious touches such as roses delivered at turndown" (Travel + Leisure).
"The building is historic, but the rooms are modern, sleek and sexy," reports the Guardian, with contemporary finishes, art deco wallpaper and artwork that pays tribute to the area’s rock 'n' roll history. Rooms also feature flat-panel TVs, in-room Keurig coffeemakers and down comforters. Plush bathrobes and rainfall showerheads come standard, while suites have a separate living room and a jetted tub.
The on-site Eighty3 Food + Drink restaurant is "a go-to for bold, Southern flavors" (Memphis Flyer), while the outdoor patio on the pedestrian-only Main Street allows for some of the best people-watching downtown. The menu features Southern and Creole dishes like the signature skillet cornbread, shrimp and grits and a cider-brined pork chop, while the weekend's Hallelujah Brunch features the likes of "Elvis waffles" with peanut butter sauce, bacon and bananas.
Make sure you venture upstairs to the hip Twilight Sky Terrace, which USAToday's 10Best.com called a "super-chic space with commanding views of the Mississippi." The bar offers cocktails, small plates and seating around an open fire pit, and Lonely Planet calls it “one of the best places in town to watch a sunset." The nightly happy hours can easily turn into late night parties; a DJ spins Thursday-Saturday nights.
Remember to pack your workout gear as the hotel has a gym, recently featured in Men’s Health Magazine, carved out of the 100-year-old bank vault and just recently restocked with new state-of-the-art equipment. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel, and guests can arrange for in-room massage or yoga sessions.
Just three blocks away is the mighty Mississippi River and the iconic Beale Street, dotted with blues, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll venues. Sun Studio, where Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash recorded their first hits, is a short tram ride away. Graceland, Presley’s former home and final resting place, is a 20-minute drive.
