The Crown Plaza Memphis sits about a mile away from the action of Downtown Memphis. Guestrooms offer a king or two double-beds with a 42-inch flat-screen TV, a mini-fridge, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Upgrade by requesting a quiet floor or a skyline view.
An onsite restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a beautiful lounge is available for cocktails. The Crown Plaza has both a sizeable fitness room and an outdoor pool. The property offers a shuttle to Downtown venues.
Crown Plaza Memphis is nine-miles to the Graceland Mansion, 0.9-miles to Downtown Memphis (visit the famous Peabody Hotel ducks, Orpheum Theater Memphis with free summer movies, Mud Island River Park and great kid-dining Huey’s Downtown) 3.4-miles to the Memphis zoo, 6.8-miles to the Pink Palace and Planetarium, 9.7-miles to the Big Back Yard, 5.7-miles to the Children’s Museum of Memphis.

The hotel is in an excellent location, about 20 minutes away from Beale Street on foot. It is also close to the river and the Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid. However, they offer a free shuttle. The rooms are spacious and well-kept. The reception area is not well arranged and the breakfast menu is spares
Well done, Crowne staff!
Today’s crew was exceptionally friendly - cordial and polite. Something here has changed, for the better. From the front-desk to the bar/restaurant, it was top-notch service, very polite, attentive and full of smiles.
A great pleasure. And the manager gave us a personal “two-minute-tour” from the parking lot of the apartment (across the street) where Elvis lived with his parents. Fun!
