I liked The Parkview. It was an older place because it was an old hotel, so some of the furniture was originally from the 1920s. It had gas stoves, which I wasn't too keen on. The location was nice, and they offered very competitive services, like transportation to doctors, and daily outings and trips. Some of the drawbacks were that laundry was not on every floor, and the building was 10 floors which could be a problem if the resident is not too mobile. The staff that I talked to was very friendly.

The Parkview is a nice facility and beautiful on the inside. The apartments were recently upgraded and have a lot of space. They have a lot of activities throughout the week. They have happy hour, trips to attractions throughout the city, to grocery stores, arts museums, or the zoo. It's easy to get around, but the parking was not appealing. There wasn't a lot and a covered garage would be better. It costs a lot.

The rooms at The Parkview were spacious, bright, and had very large closets. The food was very good. The building was beautiful, old, and historic. They had happy hour, wine and cheese, a piano, puzzles, and a pool table. Once you become a resident, you get a membership to the zoo and to the art museum. They would also take you to your doctors' appointments.

I was not impressed with The Parkview Memphis. It was dirty, depressing, and old and didn't have many activities available. The staff did not seem to care whether we stay in there or not. The rooms were fine. I would suggest that they clean the place up. It’s a beautiful old hotel that we used to go there when we were young that they converted. Now, it’s just dirty.

I've been to The Parkview, and it was nice. I would rate the rooms a 7, and the dining area a 10. I looked at the menu, and it was real exquisite. What they need to do is provide some kind of transportation. There's a parking-lot, and you can have your own vehicle. For those people who don't drive, they probably needed to have a bus or a van. It's in a central location in Memphis. It was an old hotel that they changed over to a senior community. It might be out of certain people's price range, and might be a little too pricy for somebody that's on a fixed level income.
