I would suggest the Residence Inn Memphis Downtown for your stay. Because it's located in downtown Memphis, you will have easy access to all the main attractions. Also, the staff at this hotel is known for its friendliness as well as great restaurant recommendations.

Memphis is pretty much a year-round destination, though May should be a nice time to visit before the summer heat and humidity really kick in. Not sure what age your kids are, but the easy-to-remember Memphis in May International Festival features a roster of artistic events including the Beale Street Music Festival (April 30-May 2; lineup includes bands like Widespread Panic, Alice in Chains, and Puddle of Mudd), a BBQ contest (May 13-15), and a Sunset Symphony for the grownups (May 29).
