The Peabody Memphis

Memphis, Tennessee

The hotel

Legend lives on at The Peabody, Memphis’s grandest address. Deep in the downtown district, it’s just blocks from the relics of rock ‘n’ roll and blues that made Memphis famous, including Beale Street, Gibson Guitar Factory, Sun Studio, and Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. Its most famous residents arrived in 1933, when the General Manager put his hunting decoy ducks in the fountain after a tipple or two of Tennessee whiskey. In 1940, a circus trainer taught them to ‘march’ and they still perform twice a day for guests (needless to say, duck isn’t on the menu here). That’s not the only custom that lives on, there’s the Peabody Afternoon Tea, the extravagant Sunday Brunch, and the simple tradition of indulgence, with the 5 restaurants and bars, Grecian-style pool and whirlpool, summertime rooftop parties, and Feathers Spa.

We felt very welcome staying here. We accidentally left Bluetooth earbuds in the room but didn’t realize it until we were 2 hours out of Memphis. We called the hotel, spoke with Security. They went to our room, found it, and shipped it to us!!

We arrived at 11am, just in time for the duck walk. The staff let us check in early which was a bonus surprise! They do have 2 elevators that are not working. So be patient and prepared to wait in line. This only happened during busy times, other wise it was quick and easy getting on and off. The staff was incredible nice.

So be patient and prepared to wait in line. This only happened during busy times, other wise it was quick and easy getting on and off. The staff was incredible nice. These people definitely care about The Peabody. The hotel, rooms, and outdoors are so well kept!! We love old hotels with character and history and The Peabody did not disappoint. We only stayed one night because we are on a road trip. We did the VIP tour at Graceland. Absolute must if you’re an Elvis fan. For dinner we first stopped at Margaritas which was across from the hotel. It was smelly and dirty. We had a margarita and left. Side not: our waitress was a sweetie. We walked up a couple of doors to Kooky Canucks. Very clean, smelled good and great service! Then we headed to Beal street. Can’t remember everywhere we went. We obviously stayed out way to late. But the shirt store by BB kings was the best. Great service and soft t shirts. I remember arriving at Bb Kings, lol. Waited about 45 minutes in line. Ordered peach melodies all night. The band was so much fun! Read less

It was our first time staying at the Peabody. Our room was clean and spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our son got a front row view of the duck presentation along the red carpet and hasn't stopped talking about it since. Great location next to Beale Street. Wish we would have stayed more than one night.

A great place to stay for a unique luxury experience. A short walk to the ALWAYS entertaining Beale St for some wonderful food, amazing music and, of course, trinkets you didn't know you wanted. And you must witness the March of the Peabody Ducks, every day at 11am and 5pm.
