Banish any notion of the stuffy Old South at the Madison Hotel. Though housed in a former bank, the 110-room space feels decidedly contemporary, with bold, graphic-printed walls, splashes of purple, coral, and teal amid the room décor, and unconventionally shaped furnishings, like the tall-armed and semicircular demi-sofas. Through its Memphis Artists Spotlight partnership, the hotel exhibits contemporary works from local painters and photographers, like the colorful abstracts of Janice Nabors Raiteri currently on display in the ground-floor restaurant.
