Talbot Heirs Hotel Review: In a world where 100-plus room properties define themselves as boutique hotels, this place stays true to the definition. Privately owned, with just eight suites, it offers individual personality and a great location within walking distance to Beale Street. Each of the rooms is like a small work of art. In one, brick red walls and polished wood floors provide the backdrop for taupe striped furnishings and the strategically placed gilt framed painting---it feels like the pied-a-terre of someone with very good taste. In another, you will find striking, periwinkle-colored walls and a black-and-white checked floor. A bedroom boasts cinnamon walls with a dark wood, four-poster bed and crisp white bedding. The studios can be oddly configured, with a bed, sofa and chairs overlooked by the kitchen. All accommodations have kitchens with cooking kits and dinnerware; they can be stocked prior to your arrival according to your tastes. Additional amenities include CD players, cable TV and high-speed Internet access. There is a small business center on the first floor. A stationary bike, stepper and/or treadmill can be brought to your room on request.
