Went for a short trip 3 nights. Very clean, friendly staff. William makes a great bloody mary. Krishna the front desk girl was very friendly and checked in to make sure our stay was good often. Starbucks coffee pods provided by the hotel for the room keurig. It’s about a 10 min walk from beale. Its fine if you are with friends but to walk this alone is a no. SLIGHTLY too far for safety. Would have liked to be a bit closer. The restaurant was good too, ate there for breakfast every morning.

Had a fantastic stay at this hotel recently. The rooms are great with everything you need in them and the location is perfect for exploring downtown Memphis. Handy car park next door that doesn’t charge the earth for overnight parking. What makes this place is the staff, from William the bartender all the way to the cleaning ladies they are so nice. I was recommended some amazing places to go eat that I simply wouldn’t have found without their help. Would definitely stay again and plan to the next time I’m in town.

We had a nice stay at Hotel Napoleon. We got there early and the room was ready. The room was clean, comfortable and quite. The staff was very friendly. The hotel has a bar but it was not in operation during our stay. The hotel is in walking distance to Beale street and Main street. There was a policeman or a security guard either on the corner outside the hotel or in the lobby. Though I felt safe, the area's lack of businesses does give it a deserted feeling. The hotel does not have parking but there is a lot next door that charges $8.00 a day. I would stay at Hotel Napoleon the next time I am in Memphis.

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Hotel Napoleon! A huge debt of gratitude to Rocky and the staff who made us feel like visiting cousins from the moment we hit the lobby until our bags were being put into an Uber. Every recommendation was a spot on hit. Super helpful and knowledgeable about the city. We couldn’t have done it without Rocky and the staff. We can’t wait to return to Memphis. The hotel is comfortable, clean, well appointed rooms. Everything we needed right down to the cozy robe and slippers. And Rocky makes a mean breakfast panini! Location is prime. We will definitely be returning to the Hotel Napoleon.

The bartender/cook for the Lunar Lounge is FANTASTIC!! He is so kind and a hoot to talk to. We had breakfast before our wedding there and the food was to die for. On top of it all, he was kind enough to pay for our meal as a wedding gift. This hotel is beautiful, and everyone here is so amazing. I would 100% reccomend this place to anyone traveling to Memphis.
