There are a few universal truths about Memphis. It has amazing music of all kinds, but most famously the blues. It has world-class food (not just barbecue but of course, the barbecue, too). And much of the year it can be hot and humid outside. All the more reason to book a hotel in Memphis with a pool. Here are a few hotels in Memphis with pools – both indoor and outdoor – for your Bluff City swimming pleasure; all are bookable through Culture Trip.
Memphis is a city steeped in history, and that’s true, too, of this hotel, which was originally developed by the founder of Holiday Inn in 1963. It’s been completely updated as a Hotel Indigo, with bright murals, a fun vibe with live music, and an outdoor pool (a must during the hot Memphis summers). Thankfully, the new owners maintained some of that 1960s retro charm at this prime upscale location, which is walkable from many downtown attractions.
It is pretty difficult to beat the location of this popular chain lodging off of Front Street, just a moment’s walk from the Mississippi River and Mud Island. From here you are within easy walking distance of the many charms of Memphis, including “America’s most iconic street”, Beale Street, as it’s unofficially trademarked – picture three blocks of nightclubs, restaurants, and shops. Take in the skyline from the rooftop pool and don’t forget to ask for a room with a river view.
Is a holiday not a holiday without your furry friend in tow? Then check-in at this pet-friendly – and budget-friendly – hotel within walking distance of the thriving South Main district, with its shops, restaurants, and bars, and the famous Sun Studios, where B.B. King, Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded in the ‘50s. The hotel has spacious rooms, free breakfast, and an indoor pool and gym. On a road trip? The hotel has one of the rarest amenities in downtown Memphis: free parking.
Stay at this hotel for proximity to the city attractions including the surreal man-made Crystal Shrine Grotto, and leafy Shelby Farms Park, where you can cycle or rent a paddleboat. Close to the interstate, it’s a handy base for exploring the east side of Memphis. This is an all-suite hotel with large rooms – expect couches and kitchenettes – and room for the whole family, including the dog. The outdoor pool is open in the warm-weather months and has a barbecue area – grill your lunch as you sit watching the swimmers.
