The Lee Suite is our most luxurious accommodation, named after James Lee, Jr., owner and captain of the Lee Line Steamboats. The Lees were the most recent family to own the James Lee House, having purchased it in 1890 from the Goyer heirs. In the early 20th century, James Lee’s daughter, Rosa, turned the house into the James Lee Memorial Academy of Art, which later became the Memphis College of Arts now located in Overton Park.


Two rooms were combined to make this a grand, spacious, elegantly furnished suite with two formerly coal-burning fireplaces. You will be sure to sleep comfortably on the king-sized Tempur-Choice Luxe bed made with fine linens. A Victoria+Albert tub surrounded by tower windows, a state of the art steam shower with multiple shower heads, and beautiful marble tile and floors work together to provide a spa-like experience in the tower bathroom.
