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.

I was attending a conference at the hotel which is why I was there, but I'd recommend the hotel for any sort of travel, business or personal. It is a beautiful gem within walking distance of night life, restaurants, coffee shops and Memphis must-do sight seeing. And you will probably never visit another hotel with a daily duck march!

Being collectors of Jack Daniels we decided we would stay at the Peabody Hotel when in Memphis visiting the sites. We were delighted with the Jack experience. From the cocktails to the food on offer in the Corner Bar. The wait staff in the Corner Bar were very friendly and it made for a great atmosphere. The ducks were unable to do their parade to the Fountain due to it being renovated which was a disappointment for us but we hope to get back soon to see them soon. Read less

Stayed there 2 nights at 300$ usd a nights. First roam 425 we had to move because neighbors were so loud we could here what they were saying because of the communicating door. Upgraded to room 401, it was even worst. Same problems with communicating door without insonorisation, carpet with big stain and noise from AC fan on roof next to the windows with sound level at 83 decibels. Like having an air blower or coffee grinder running all night. No excuse other then offers to change room again on the same floor. No other compensation. On top, urine smell in corridors. Nice lobby that’s all way over price. Read less

The Peabody was a beautiful place, good customer service, they opened the door when I arrived and when I would leave. The rooms are roomy. It's a place that you can enjoy being there for a couple days or more. I like that you could walk to most places.
