Tel: 901 334 5900's insider take:

The Westin Memphis Beale Street hotel—opened in 2009 within stumbling distance of Beale Street and overlooking the Gibson Guitar Factory—caters to luxury travelers without expecting them to be too buttoned up. The 203 rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, flat-screen TVs, white-on-white pillow-top beds, and bathrooms with dual-head massage showers (all the better after a long night at the honky-tonks). But the real strength here is that the staff goes out of its way to acquaint you with the city: During our stay, a doorman walked us two blocks to point out a bar, and a desk attendant wrote up a comprehensive list of her favorite fried-chicken and barbecue joints. Finally, Memphis has a high-end hotel that matches its friendly, fun-loving self.—Colleen Clark
