Downtown Memphis Central Station Hotel Tour
Meet Jeremy Sadler and Helen Nelson from The Central Station Hotel in Memphis, TN! The Central Station has stood watch over South Main Street in downtown Memphis for more than 100 years, a direct reflection of the success, struggle, and spirit of the city that grew up around it. It was built simply for arrivals and departures, but the life that churned through on its rails gave South Main a vitality that turned it into one of the most iconic and dynamic neighborhoods in the city.
Today, Central Station Hotel lets you experience the verve of this town in ways unlike any other, just like a real Memphian would. We invite you to depart from the city you think you know and arrive in the Memphis that is. Welcome to The Central Station Memphis. Memphis Central Station, referred to as Grand Central Station prior to 1944, opened in 1914 and was built on the site of a former station known as Calhoun Street Station. Both stations were owned by the Illinois Central Railroad and now service Amtrak's City of New Orleans route and the MATA Trolley system.
Sleep well in one of the hotel’s 123 meticulously-designed and spacious king or double queen guest rooms with plush bedding, custom artwork and luxurious amenities. Enjoy the hotel's early 20th century charm and take in views of the historic South Main neighborhood or Mississippi River through the oversized windows. With modern amenities including complimentary WiFi, a 49" HDTV, functional workspace, easy access USB outlets, premium cable channels, and Keurig® coffeemaker, you'll easily be able to relax and stay connected. Refresh and renew with refined amenities from the William Roam Steam Collection. Relax and enjoy a little room service while listening to The Central Station’s daily curated playlist on custom designed EgglestonWorks speakers available in every guest room.
A true Memphis Original, Central Station's bar & lounge is the best sounding music room in town and home to a one-of-a-kind, Memphis Inspired vinyl record collection. Savor the Memphis sound as you never have before, while sipping on fine craft cocktails alongside locals and visitors alike.

Enjoy your meal paired with an extensive wine list that offers a selection of unique wines from smaller, family-owned wineries that deserve a place at your table.
