The River Inn of Harbor Town

Located in Memphis, Tennessee, The River Inn of Harbor Town lists itself as a ladies traveller preferred hotel. I think the boutique-styled accommodations would appeal to every gender and age, but especially to those that want a relaxed getaway, a romantic escape, or even a peaceful retreat. Overlooking the Mississippi river, it was a pleasure to stay here.

The front parlor of the River Inn

 

The River Inn offers several amenities for its $257.00 (more or less) per night room charge. At check-in, we were offered a glass of wine. A really nice touch! We sipped our white and red infusions in the front parlour while the pianist (Laura) entertained us with various songs. We were dazzled with our very own private concert.

Paulette’s Restaurant

 

I prefer fine dining as I appreciate both a culinary experience and a quiet atmosphere. Paulette’s restaurant is located inside The River Inn, which is convenient to guests that don’t want to venture out. The cuisine was tastefully prepared and I thoroughly enjoyed my medium-rare steak. However, guests also have the option of the Terrace and Tug’s, a casual grill. The Terrace is located on the upper level of the inn and offers an amazing view of the Mississippi.

Port and Lindt chocolate was waiting in our room when we returned after dinner. Another complimentary and guilty pleasure.

The inn has reading spaces where you can borrow a book. In the morning, guests will find freshly brewed coffee on the empty shelf.

Breakfast is complimentary if you’re staying at the inn. I really enjoyed the Eggs Benedict.
