8/10 Very Good

2/10 Poor

Wow, what a disappointment! When we checked in, we got an “upgrade” from our king room to a suite with a queen bed since they had overbooked (this is not an upgrade). Then we went up to the room which was dirty. Stained carpet, smudgy mirrors, dirty rags left in the bathroom. We were very disappointed because we thought this was supposed to be much nicer. We stayed the night and the next morning my husband took a shower and the drain was clogged, which is even more disgusting since it’s an open shower (so there was just a large puddle in the middle of the floor). We checked out early and went elsewhere. This is the only time I have ever done that.

Cool hotel. Walking distance to all the spots in Memphis. A little nervous about the parking, but turned out fine. Very affordable and top notch downtown hotel.

Some improvements needed,
The lobby could use a new rug! The doors were locked and it took a couple of minutes before someone opened the doors. Why not install a machine to use the room key?

4/10 Fair

Look else where….
VERY RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE, Not a warm or friendly environment. CS reps wore street clothes. Dirty dingy white t shirt with writing. No coffee until 8, was told at 7:00 to go to Starbucks for coffee. No complimentary breakfast. Rooms were small but nice. Elevators weren’t clean.

6/10 Good

The staff at Hu is very nice and that is the best part of this review. However, a couple of issues that bothered us. The coffee shop was not open. The restaurant was not open. The tv in the room did not work except for 4 channels until the day we left. We were only given 2 towels to use. Housekeeping did not come the second day at all. Stains were noted to the carpet. Overall not anywhere as nice as the photographs provided on the website. We did enjoy the view from the rooftop. All in all the stay was fine, but those issues were definitely bothersome given the extended period of time we were there.

Just Okay
Parking was not communicated clearly, ended up parking in a parking garage and my vehicle was vandalized. Carpet was not clean. Hotel needs major update. Not worth the price.
