About this listing
1 queen bed / 1 bath fully equipped apartment in the heart of downtown Memphis, walking distance from city attractions, restaurants, shops and nightlife.
The Exchange Building, completed in 1910 & listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was refitted in 1996 to house 202 attractive efficiencies, one & two bedroom apartments, a penthouse & handicap accessible units. While the building has undergone a series of renovations, every effort has been made to preserve its historic features, such as the original mosaic tiles, an early-1900s era Tennessee marble staircase, the elaborate plasterwork & the granite surfaces. The towering marble ceilings of the lobby exude the elegance of downtown living.
The apartments provide a homey feel with a personal touch & high-quality amenities. Several of the units located on the higher floors provide our residents a spectacular view.
Situated at an unbeatable location, our apartments are great for a weekend getaway. Let yourself be inspired by the view & invigorated by the bustling & lively neighborhood. Rest up in our comfortable abodes & make sure to spend enough time exploring the giant playground that is the City of Memphis.

Interaction with guests
Due to the increased interest in my apartments, I have hired on additional staff to help ensure a pleasant stay for my guests. I travel often, so I have a front desk staff with keys to all of my units so that you can check in at any time of the day with ease. The front desk also has access to the apartment, maintenance & housekeeping crews between 9a & 9p daily. When I am in town, I try my best to meet & interact with all of the guests who stay in my apartments. I look forward to the opportunity to meet & host you!
Located in the heart of downtown Memphis, you will be walking distance from most attractions, restaurants, live music, and beautiful parks.
Almost everything worth seeing is within walking distance of our building. The world famous Beale Street is a short 7-8 minute walk away. The Memphis public bus system (MATA) has a stop on my corner that picks up every 10-15 minutes on weekdays. The bus schedules are posted on the MATA website. Once downtown, I recommend taking the Main Street trolley to/from downtown attractions (~$1/ride). There are also taxis, Lyft & Uber cars available for hire from here. There are grocery stores & pharmacies nearby (1-2 miles).

I was born in Uzbekistan and raised in Memphis. I'm the middle child, with 2 older brothers and 2 younger sisters -- and recently a 5 time uncle! I've been fortunate to travel the world in my early years and learned a lot about the different cultures around the world. I enjoy learning about geopolitical history, architecture, and technological advancements that benefit the myriad societies around the globe. To me, Memphis is an exciting city that competes with the great cities of the world as a worthwhile stop for play and leisure. Allow me to host you in my apartments, located in the historic Exchange Building in downtown Memphis.
UPDATE: Due to the increased traffic, I hired additional help to make the check-in process more convenient for my guests. The lobby now has a staffed Helpdesk, where you will be able to get any assistance, should you need it (24/7). I hope to see you while you're in Memphis, but I do travel a lot and sometimes I miss out on meeting my guests personally. I hope you have a wonderful stay at The Exchange and please don't hesitate to contact me via Airbnb should you need anything.
