Hotel and Lodging

The Vespa Club of America and the Memphis Kings are thrilled to announce that the official Amerivespa 2016 hotel will be the Sheraton Downtown Hotel, located at 250 North Main Street Memphis, TN.   With a beautiful view of the city and Mississippi River, this luxury 600 room hotel (the largest in Memphis) is situated at the hub of downtown Memphis, within short walking distance of many Memphis landmarks, tourist attractions, nightclubs, fine dining and shopping.  Get on your scooter and it’s conveniently just a few minutes or less to many of the Amerivespa events and venues.  The newly renovated hotel directly connects to Memphis Cook Convention Center, the location for the Saturday night Amerivespa awards banquet.  The Sheraton Downtown is offering an unbeatable discount price for all rally attendees of $139 per night for single, double, triple, and quadruple occupancy rooms.  Also included is free WiFi, free scooter parking, and car parking for $18 per night.  This discount rate is available throughout the rally but also three days before and three days after (June 20 – 29), so plan to stay additional days to get the most of what Memphis has to offer.
