About the property

Timeless old world charmer in the heart of downtown Memphis

Historic 3 story walk-up building with no elevator that was formerly a luxury hotel in 1926 and is now a converted condo building. Located in downtown Memphis in the Medical Center neighborhood. This updated contemporary 1 bedroom 1 bath condo is sandwiched between Front and Main Streets. Only four blocks from Beale St. and half a block from Vance Park and Riverside Drive. You will be within walking distance to many of the local restaurants, bars, and a grocery store within steps of the front door. The trolley stop is less then a block from this prime location. If your stay will be mostly in the downtown area you will not need a car. However, there is a free gated assigned parking spot available for guest use.

About Michelle

I grew up in Memphis where I have many family members and friends. I enjoy coming home and reconnecting with everyone and hanging out in downtown. I currently live in Dallas, TX and have been there since the 90's.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2015

Why Michelle chose Memphis

Location, location, location! I love the nostalgic lofty feel of this condo. I also enjoy that it is a corner unit with a wall of floor to ceiling windows that allows in plenty of sunlight year round! There are many restaurants, bars, and local attractions all within walking distance. I love being able to get around without a car.

What makes this condo unique

This is a true one bedroom/bath condo with all the conveniences of home! This is a 3 story walk-up building with no elevator. The exposed brick walls, duct work, hardwood floors, and wall of windows offers a true loft style look to this condo. There's a full size washing and dryer in the condo and plenty of closet and storage space. You will not be disappointed with your stay in this historic building.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We're back home in California now. We had a great time in Memphis thanks to you and Jeff. Your suggested eateries took us to some wonderful repasts and Jeff's tour of the area after our train arrived was a great overview. We can't thank you enough for you helpfulness.

Great location! Perfect for our needs.

Location, location, location!

This is condo is in a great up and coming neighborhood still in the early stages of that up and coming. Amenities were as advertised. The property was very clean. The owner communicated all I need to know about the property and even text'd me when the property was available a bit early. I never felt uncomfortable in the area as some others may have mentioned. I should mention though... the sidewalks are rather rough and uneven. I wouldn't ride a skateboard or want to be in a wheelchair on it. Hey the neighborhood is downtown, repairs are needed. Location is everything. We walked everywhere, from Gus' Fried Chicken (Best I've ever had), to Beale Street, down 2nd Ave. to Autozone Ballpark and also to the National Civil Rights Museum. The only minor issue I had was the hallway of the building smelled strongly like pest spray of some sort. Thankfully it didn't smell in the condo. But then again. I'd rather smell pest spray than see pests. :) A great experience overall. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this location to anyone!

Close to Beal.. decent deal

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed, close to Beal Street and river walk. Off street secure parking. It was smokin hot during our visit and the A/C kept us cool. Nice ceiling fan over the bed for breeze as well as white noise. Kitchen and bath were both good particularly the automatic ice maker. No elevator but 3rd floor wasn't a bad little climb. The apartment overall was pretty clean just a few small details (crumbs on end tables and floors needed a thorough cleaning). The owner was very responsive and provided detailed instructions for all aspects of check in, check out, etc.. Also provided lots of good travel info, maps, etc.. that helped us plan our outings.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo for a stop in Memphis on our way to NOLA. We found the condo to be very clean and perfect for what we were doing. Literally blocks from Beale Street, we only used our car to go to Graceland

We booked back in January then just a couple of weeks before our arrival wanted to add a day on to the beginning of our weekend. Angela was more than accommodating to make sure we could get that additional night! Another thing that really impressed me was how quickly our security deposit was refunded, within 4 days of our departure. I have rented on VRBO many, many times and I have never been refunded so quickly!

One suggestion would be to advise your guests to go to the rear parking lot first then to go to the front gate to get the keys. We arrived around 10:30 pm and stopped at the front door to get the keys. We weren't sure what to expect when there were a couple of people hanging out by the front door (turns out they were residents outside smoking which was fine) and lots of others "walking about" which also turned out to be normal for the area but we didn't know that. We were exhausted from a day of travel and were a little concerned at first. It would have been nice to now that we were already in the secured parking lot.

The only other thing I would mention is to make sure future guests realize this is a 3rd floor unit with no elevator. It didn't adversely impact us but could impact others.

Thanks for a great weekend in Memphis!

Owner's Response: Hello Jackie, I'm glad my condo met your needs during your visit to Memphis and Thank you for your valuable feed back. I do have "no elevator" in the amenities section of my profile however, I've also added this information in other areas of the description profile. Hopefully, this will help future guest that may not scroll down to amenities part of my profile. I hope to host you again in the near future.

I love this place

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience. The building is very historic and the location was perfect. We walked to Beale St. and to Tom Lee Park every day for Beale Street Music Fest and we couldn't believe how short a walk it was. The apartment is very comfortable and has lots of room. We liked the way it was decorated. The exposed brick gave it a lot of character and made it feel very vintage and urban and homey. It was very clean and the service was good. I would love to stay here again.
