River Inn of Harbor Town
Warm Southern hospitality is at the heart of this small, boutique hotel. From the complimentary glass of champagne or wine given at check-in, to the port and chocolate truffles provided at turn-down, the River Inn is dedicated to providing an exceptional guest experience from sunrise to sunset.
Inside, the hotel emits a comfortable ambiance that invites you to take a moment to put your feet up. In the comfort of your traditionally styled room, find grand four-poster beds and deep plush sofas to sink into. Meanwhile, in the downstairs lobby, you’ll find a relaxing and communal atmosphere with live piano and an open fireplace to bask beside. Or, find a quiet moment at one of the library-style seating areas found on each floor - cosy nooks perfect to read a few pages of a book.
Though the hotel is intimate, comprising just 28 guestrooms, there is no shortage of dining options. In addition to the complimentary breakfast provided to all guests, there are three restaurants available within the hotel. Paulette’s Restaurant, a well-heeled spot among the locals of Memphis, serves high-end European cuisine that is perfect for celebrations and special occasions. Meanwhile the Terrace provides contemporary fare with stunning views of the Mississippi, and Tug’s is the spot for casual pub-style comfort food.
Set along the Mississippi River on the famous sandbar neighbourhood of Harbor Town, this hotel is well situated to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Mud Island. The many boutique stores and top-rated eateries dotted around Harbor Town are perfect for a mid-afternoon wander, or for something more active, head to the water for dolphin-watching and fishing excursions.
