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.

I was super excited when we booked our hotel at the Peabody. The valet and the bar staff were excellent. The front desk attitude was less then welcoming. They were not that friendly. They were not very accommodating. We were not offered a map of the city. I know they gave out maps to other guests upon arrival because I noticed it later in the trip. The gym hostess did not acknowledge me when I walked in. The internet kept going out. My wife had to work and it took over a day to get a steady connection. We made two separate trips to the front desk. Their response was , “I have it on my phone.” They finally fixed it , but now it delayed us from doing things because our concern was not addressed the first time. We needed more towels and advised housekeeping we would be leaving for the day. No new towels when we returned. I called again and still no towels. It should not take this many calls to get fresh towels. I respect the fact due to the Coronavirus we all have to be safe. But due to the multiple calls, we could not go to a nice dinner. Now, the hotel itself is beautiful. The ducks in the fountain are adorable. The lobby is perfect for relaxing listening to the piano. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Very easy walk to Beale Street and the BBQ place Rendezvous. For the price we paid, it was well worth it. However, if it was the full price, I could not stay there. Read less

The Peabody is the only place to stay in downtown Memphis. You're steps away from The Rendezvous, Huey's, Felicia's, The Redbirds and a short walk to Beale Street. The first floor lobby is a great spot for families and loved ones to see ducks before dinner and a martini in the evening. We came from Dallas and couldn't be happier with our stay.… Read more

Staff was excellent! Food was great!!! Roof access was closed. Great chance to teach my children a bit of history about the hotel. Their favorite part was pre visiting Graceland and knowing Elvis stayed in the same hotel.

Really enjoyed the stay. Perfect location. No problems at all. Hotel dealt with quarantineing in a safe and smart way. Other hotels should follow there example in how they implemented social distancing policies. I had a lovely time.
