Kress building (aka Marriott SpringHill Suites)

I’ve already shown you my favorite park AND favorite Taco Bell here in Memphis. Jump on the Riverfront Loop Trolley and you’re in for a real treat (I often do!). In San Diego, where I grew up, my 3 favorite places are Mission Bay Park, Coronado, and Harbor Island.

I’m here to add one more fave. The most stunning building here in Memphis is the Kress Building.

Kress building

This building was once a five-and-dime type store, which opened in 1927 and closed in 1994
