The Peabody Memphis

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 loved the afternoon tea at Chez. We are not even tea people but you must try it! We stayed the entire weekend and we live in Memphis! We didn't even feel like our house was 15 minutes away! We also had a massage at Feathers Spa. Highly recommend the Peabody Hotel!

Southern Hospitality at its finest. The Peabody has an international fame and it does not disappoint. We had a suite and it was a glorious timepiece in silver and teal, with period furniture. I loved the little duck soap. The Duck Parade was worth seeing but very busy. I recommend sitting in the lounge and enjoying a cocktail. There is an interesting mini muesuem display with some interesting period artefacts. The gentleman on the door was amazingly helpful. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast including waffles. A gem of a hotel. Reasssuringly expensive with service to match. thank you Read less

We make a stop at the Peabody twice a year on our way two and from the East Coast. We are always warmly welcomed (along with our two Golden Retrievers). Its always the best part of our travels...

One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. Staff were helpful, kind, and professional. The attention to detail is outstanding. The ducks were a highlight and staff really go out of their way to accommodate everyone vying to watch the famous duck parades! I would highly recommend this hotel.
