Elvis Song it Embodies: "Money Honey." You can see both the Memphis skyline and Mississippi River from this former bank turned music-themed boutique. The lobby is jazz-chic with a grand piano and even the "m" in Madison is created from two eighth musical notes.
King Connection: Shake over to the Madison trolley, just a hip-gyrating distance from the hotel. Rattle west through historic Memphis, and roll to Sun Studio, where Elvis cut his first recordings.
Hunka Hunka Savings: Get $25 off food and drinks charged to your room from the Madison's restaurant, bar, or room-service menus (doubles start at $196 in August). Code SOUTHLIVING2011. madisonhotelmemphis.com
