River Inn of Harbor Town
The River Inn of Harbor Town is a new property that has the look and feel of an elegant European Inn, with antique fixtures, reclaimed wood floors, four-poster beds, flower boxes, and windows that actually open. Guests mingle with Memphis locals at the intimate rooftop bar, where there are beautiful sunset views over the Mississippi River. If you can't make it to the bar, you can enjoy the sight from your own room. All but six have full river views. Book the Admiral Suite if you want to sleep in the same bed as 2008 presidential candidate John McCain.
