The ultimate Deep South city, Memphis is celebrated as the musical capital of the USA and the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll. From the iconic Beale Street to Graceland, you’ll hear the constant hum of Elvis (and the blues and soul that inspired him) at every turn. The city is also the birthplace of the modern franchise motel – the first Holiday Inn was conceived here in 1952. That particular establishment is long gone, but big American hotel chains still tend to dominate. There are plenty more unique options to be found though – take your pick from quirky themed lodgings, historical delights, and a handful of high-end boutique hotels that have popped up this millennium.
