Holiday Inn Debuts Renovations in Downtown Memphis

The Holiday Inn Select in downtown Memphis has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to its rooms, restaurants and meeting space, all of which sport a new, contemporary look, it says.

Located near historic Beale Street, the updated Holiday Inn Select Downtown Memphis now features two restaurants—Sekisui Sushi Bar, which the hotel says is one of the only sushi bars in Memphis, and the new Russwood Park Sports Bar and Grill, a casual dining concept that was added as part of the hotel's recent upgrades.

Also added in the course of renovations were new furnishings and updated decor in each of the property's 192 guestrooms, as well as new wall coverings and new carpet in the hotel's event space, which includes two ballrooms and three smaller meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 400 people.

To celebrate its facelift, the Holiday Inn Select Downtown Memphis is offering through 2009 a series of packages for leisure travelers that include hotel accommodations as well as tickets to local attractions such as the Memphis Zoo and Graceland.
