The tour was really interesting and very well explained by the young good ol' boy who showed us round. Saw every part of factory - a revolation. I went round on spec and glad I did - fascinating even if you don't play guitar.

Downtown Memphis is really not too family friendly. East Memphis is about 20 minutes away and very nice and good prices. I would avoid airport hotels also.
