A Memphis Landmark

Welcome to Hotel Napoleon, where each representative is dedicated to providing nothing less than extraordinary service. Opened fall of 2016, this boutique, upscale hotel offers guests 56 guest rooms and 2 suites. Designed inside the original five story Press-Scimitar Building built in 1902, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The builder, Napoleon Hill (1830-1909) was the richest man in the city and lived in an impressive mansion across the street in the location of the present day Sterick Building. The Memphis Press-Scimitar was the evening newspaper that was published until the mid 1980’s.
