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.

We live in Memphis and love going to stay at the Peabody for a night or two to be able to hang out downtown and enjoy the city. We love being In the lobby and watching the ducks while having appetizers and drinks, and then watching the ducks leave and go up the elevator. Definitely recommend staying at the Peabody, the South’s Grand Hotel.

Awesome place! Great location, outstanding service, and so much ambience! As expected the duck parade was great, and the Lobby Bar is a great place to hang out! Looking forward to our next trip to Memphis and our stay at The Peabody.

The Peabody is not where you want to be if traveling with a pet. All pets stay together so it is like staying at a noisy pound or shelter. Not worth the money. The room was not as clean as it should have been - toothpaste from last guest still in the sink. Hilton is awesome for pets and the price is better.

We haven’t traveled since covid started a year ago and the Peabody is the only hotel we felt comfortable staying in. The duck March is an amazing experience and our son was able to be honorary duck master. He won’t stop talking about it. The Peabody had character and charm which we really enjoy. Highly suggest a night stay at the Peabody.
