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.

Beautiful historic hotel, excellent staff! Of course the ducks are awesome I love seeing the care and precision taken with them. The attention to detail given by all staff is a refreshing experience to have.

Enjoyed my stay over all. Highly recommend this hotel in Memphis. I'd only recommend that when booking, request a room that isn't by the elevators. My room wrapped around one of the elevators, and I could hear the bell ringing all night long.

Fabulous hotels. The staff could not do enough for you, facilities were great. Location could not be beaten for Beale Street and loved the ducks. Loved it so much already planning another trip. Would def recommend
