The Sheraton Memphis Downtown recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation with redesigned guest rooms, public spaces, restaurants, meeting rooms, and fitness center. The hotel is just a short walk from the Mississippi River and Beale Street and located on an official stop of the Main Street trolley, which offers convenient access to the FedEx Forum, National Civil Rights Museum and the South Main Historic Arts District.

The hotel is just a short trolley ride away from Beale Street. Known as the "Home of the Blues," Beale Street gave rise to many blues musicians and continues to honor that reputation today with nightly performances.
