Very nice hotel with excellent breakfast and friendly servants. Unfortunately is seamed to us that the hotel overbooked the rooms. So instead of two rooms we got only one room. This was very unpleasant for us as we had booked four months in advance. When the reservation works the hotel is great. It was just not reliable for us.

Nestled quietly on the bank of the Mississippi River lies a truly magical place... The River Inn of Harbor Town. This incredible establishment prides itself on providing each and every guest with an incomparable experience in true,"old fashioned", southern hospitality! My room was spotless, very comfortable, and tastefully appointed. The lobby and bar area were equally inviting, with a fireplace...

This was our first stay at The River Inn and we were blown away with how nice it was. The room was very elegant and charming. The bed was so comfortable it was awesome. They have a really nice Terrace restaurant on the 4th floor that gives you a great view of the mighty Mississippi river. Go at Sunset you'll...

This was our first stay at the River Inn and we were so pleased. It is small and quaint with the service you would expect from a boutique hotel. We were greeted by Katie and Julia who were were friendly and informative. We stayed in the Nautical Suite which was large, well appointed and comfortable allowing us to comfortably visit...

I stayed one night at the River Inn of Harbor Town and my experience was extremely positive. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the room was clean and very comfortable, and the little touches like the welcome glass of wine, the turn-down service with chocolate and brandy, etc. were nice surprises. A lovely site and worth the trip!

Dear Mr. Phil C. Please accept my apologies for the very unprofessional welcome by our front desk staff, this should not have happened, and I am very sorry about this. Both members of our front desk team are new staff members and they should not have been on duty without having a fully trained team member with them. I am...

Stayed here for a couple of nights this week with my wife and we both thought this was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. It's a really classy place. The food in the terrace and Tugs was excellent. Breakfast, which was included, was really good. We liked the little touches like the complimentary champagne on arrival and...

My husband and I drove from Chicago to New Orleans, passing through Memphis. Our stay at Harbour Town Square was the best. Amazingly friendly Reception staff, lovely room, amazing food particularly Paulette's restaurant, great views of the sunset over the Mississippi, generally a lovely area which is very clean and picturesque. We visited Graceland nearby which is definitely worth visiting....

We were very impressed with the beautiful River Inn Hotel. From the excellent service at check in with Melvin and the warm welcome from Karl Freidrich the GM, to the personable and professional staff in the Terrace and Paulette's, this is an extremely well-run boutique hotel. The food and drink in both restaurants were delicious. The decor, gorgeous fresh flowers...

This hotel is located in a beautiful spot in Memphis. It is right across the road from the Mississippi River and you can walk over and check out barges, the M bridge and other river sights. If you want to run or walk (or just amble), the green strip of park offers a good opportunity for enjoyment. It's also nice...
