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.

The duck walk is a bucket list event that should not be missed and will not disappoint. Beautiful hotel with excellent staff and service. Easy access to all of Memphis and an easy few blocks walk to Beale Street.

Great location, friendly staff, loved it was Per friendly. Restaurant allowed us to book reservations even though they were closed, and we did not know. Bar area is cute and fun. Would stay again but not room 510 due to the old pipes making loud noises all the time.
