We opened the door to our room (1501) and were so excited. Although we hadn’t specifically booked a room with a bridge view, we had a sensational view of both the bridge and the Mississippi and the room was a great size. The bed was comfortable but the shower wasn’t great. however considering what the rest of the room had to offer it wasn’t a huge deal for us. It is about a 15 minute walk to Beale Street, felt like a lot longer until we found our way around. We didn’t feel unsafe walking around at night but I would definitely recommend walking down Main Street rather then Front Street. As we were in a room on the top floor we had no issues with noise apart from the train that decides to blow it’s horn at 5.30am! Not much the hotel can do about that though. This hotel is definitely a winner considering the price for the location (and the free breakfast is a bonus).
