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.

The Peabody Memphis is luxury with a whimsical and magical touch! Love the ducks who are trained to march down the red carpet ! They keep it historical and traditional , very special . The Christmas tree, the live music, old fashioned Christmas carols, all very warm and cozy with impeccable service .

We enjoyed our two-night stay at the Peabody. Dinner at Capriccio was nice, and the food was very good. Our room was spacious and well stocked. there could be better signage as to how to get to the garage by foot after self-parking.
