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.

From the moment we arrived at the property is was remarkable. Although I opted for self parking, having my own bags was still a breeze. I was able to go from the garage to the hotel and never have to actually go outside in the cold weather. Check in was extremely simple. even though the hotel lobby was crowded with spectators looking at the ducks, I was still able to get to registration and get checked in with ease. After the ducks made their departure I proceeded to my room to relax. It was so peaceful and quiet that I actually feel asleep for a moment. Included with my stay was the club level access. around 5:30pm I went to the Club Lounge to enjoy the offerings. Much to my surprise was a well stocked bar, including champagne, wine, and other spirits. They also offered us various cheeses and two hot hors d'oeuvres. Our first evening was crab cakes and bacon wrapped meatballs! They were amazing. The second evening my husband joined me to watch the NFC football final game and we enjoyed the same amazing service and BBQ pork sliders and shrimp egg rolls. The staff was so sweet that they quietly cleared the area as my husband and I continued to sit and enjoy the game in the lounge. Around 8pm each night, they put out fresh cookies (with milk) and snacks for all club level guests to enjoy. Each morning we returned to the Club Lounge to enjoy the continental breakfast. However, the Peabody doesn't do it as you'd expect. They offer several juice options, fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, bagels, fresh smoked salmon (with capers), and even a omelet station! This was by far the best added bonus to the stay. Being able to start the morning with a fresh hot breakfast only feet away from our room in a quiet atmosphere was ideal for the relaxing stay. If you have the option, you should definitely splurge and get the club level! We enjoyed everything about our stay and definitely plan to stay again in the near future... and the club level is a must! Read less

We really loved the Peabody. The history of the place, the location, the atmosphere, and the elegance of the hotel are superb. Everything, the hotel room service, the hotel bar, and the perfect location to everything Memphis.

Very enjoyable experience. Enjoyed the lobby area and the piano music. Good people watching location. Good restaurants within a short walk. Carriage rides are available right outside the main entrance. Nice shops in the lobby area.
