Need A Vacation? Try A Staycation! Here Are 3 Local Memphis Hotels to Check Out

Updated: Oct 21, 2020



In the midst of COVID-19, one thing everyone misses is traveling. From the breezy airport vibes to seeing the plane fly above the clouds, to renting a car and crashing on your hotel bed from jetlag. We miss it all.

But to get those vibes back, what do we do? With travel restrictions, we’re limited to travel only so far. How can we get a sense of those “vibes” back without traveling outside of Memphis?

That’s where staycations come in.

Here are five local hotel spots where you can go, so you can feel like you’re back in your vacation groove.

And, if you're an IHG member, be sure to collect your points once you book your stay.
