Editorial review:

You'll get a mix of Southern hospitality with the atmosphere of the big city here. This hotel was built in 1905 and is located in downtown within walking distance of several tourist attractions. The rooms are relaxing and the service is attentive. The sunset as seen from the rooftop bar is beautiful, with its views of the Tennessee River. Critics say that there's just something missing here.

                The location, it was clean and the bed was comfortable

                When we first got to our room it had barely any toilet paper and no kleenex. The toilet was continually plugging up. The water pressure of the toilet was next to nothing. Whenever we requested something ie (plunger) it took them up to 45min to deliver. We were on the 13th floor and I could here everything outside the window. Every early am I was awakend by the dump truck emptying the bins. When I got home I discovered that I had left my coat in the closet. It took me a couple of days before I was able to speak with someone about this. They told me that they had located it and were going to make arrangements to deliver it to me. They were to call me back about delivery options. I have not heard from them yet.

                The staff were wonderful

                When they Authorised my Credit Card they STUFFED up!! Instead of authorising for 1st night they did it for the whole stay. but, they did it TWICE, although I can accept it may have been a accident, it inconvienced me. I was told it would be fixed possilble that day, BUT, almost a week later and IT HASN'T BEEN FIXED. NOT HAPPY!!!

                Its decor, its indoor swimming pool, its stunning roof view of the Mississippi, the tremendous charm and friendliness of its staff, its central downtown location.

                Almost nothing. One waitress one morning muddled my breakfast order, but this was rectified with charm. When either of the two elevators had function problems, this caused waiting in this 16-floor hotel.

                If you stay at the Peabody, you get a great lobby experience but a disappointing room. The rooms at the Madison are designed beautifully and are much better in size so you feel like you are truly staying in a luxury hotel. The Peabody has old charm but there's no way the reataurant's at the Peabody compete with the Madison either by menu, updated design, quality of the food, or quality of staff. My husband and I spent our honeymoon t the Peabody 30 yrs ago but chose the Madison for our 30th anniversary because of recommendations from Wright Medical staff in Arlington, TN. The staff regardless if who they were or what they were doing never let us not go unnoticed and were all so welcoming in such a sincere way. Loved it.

                Attentive staff. Comfortable, albeit small room. Appreciate ice delivered being delivered to room. Loved having a shower in addition to a tub. Wish we would had use the fitness facility.

                The mezzaline where breakfast was served was too warm.

                The roof top bar was a great place to have a night cap.

                Room was fairly quiet and bed was comfortable.Room was good size. Great tv's and my daughter loved the ipod docking station and speakers. Staff was polite and service was timely.

                We booked a king suite room, so our daughter had a place to sleep. Pull out couch was small and the mattress was horrible with paper thin mattress that basically had the coils and wires poking thru. We called and a roll away was delivered to the room.

                Way to expensive and no vending machines..so if you wanted something to drink you had to order room service...the food we ordered via room service was horable! They need a coke machine or some kind if vending machine because it was a total rip off 3 dollars for a coke..get real!

                Location

                Room was not ready when we checked in. Room was small for the rate paid. Bed was not very comfortable. On a scale of 1-10, would give room a 4. disappointing!

                We like the accommodations, the location, and the staff.

                The parking charges are too much!
