Four Points Arrives In Memphis

The Four Points by Sheraton chain of hotels recently celebrated the opening of their 150th property – and now they’ve made their first incursion into western Tennesse with the addition of Four Points Memphis East.

The hotel has 124 rooms, each with a 32″ HDTV, the Serta Presidential “double pillow-top” bed and a refrigerator.  Freebies for guests include bottled water (replenished daily) and internet access throughout the property.  Food and drink is available at The Cafe and the River Oaks restaurant.  For meetings and other events, they’ve got five banquet and meeting rooms – including a rather unique 52-seat amphitheater.

As the “Memphis East” implies, this new hotel is located on the eastern edge of Memphis, adjacent to I-240.  That loop road around town will get Four Points guests into downtown Memphis in about 15 minutes, assuming traffic doesn’t get in the way too much.  It’s a very popular area for places to stay, with a dozen other hotels within a mile of Four Points by Sheraton Memphis East. is the place to find the best deals at over 100 hotels in Memphis and more than 1,000 in Tennessee.  We also give you all the details about the best places to stay near 144 different Memphis landmarks and attractions.

Springtime in Vegas

Las Vegas has always been a top spot for great hotel deals – they assume they’ll make up for it with the “contributions” you make at the gambling tables – and the economics of the past few years have resulted in even better offers as they try to get visitors to come to town.  From now until the end of April TheRealPlaces will be promoting a special on Las Vegas hotels and vacation packages, with savings of up to 40%.

Participating casino hotels vary from newer properties such as The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Trump International Hotel Las Vegas and Wynn Las Vegas to “classic” options like the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino, the Las Vegas Hilton and the recently renovated Tropicana Las Vegas.   Our special Las Vegas Promotional page lists the current offers from these hotels and more. 

Planning to fly into town?  We’ve also got special prices on Hotel + Flight packages that can save you $hundreds compared to booking separately.

These kinds of prices won’t last forever – even in Las Vegas – so book now to take advantage before they all go away on April 30th!
