Beautiful historic landmark

The architecture and history of this hotel is preserved in grand style. If you go to see the duck march arrive at least 30 minutes early to get a good viewing spot.

This place is beautiful. A great old city hotel in the grand tradition of pre-WWII. The service was excellent. The staff friendly and helpful. We upgraded to the Club Floor and it was well worth the extra money. It is literally THE place to stay in Memphis and a quick walk away from Beale Street

I've never been disappointed in the Peabody! It's an icon and rightly so. We've had overnight visits, as well as just a stop in for drinks before dinner. And seeing the ducks walk is a must-do while in Memphis, at least once!

I stayed at the Peabody for 3 nights for a business meeting. Thru reviews and visiting other places it is one of the best hotels in Memphis but not worthy of a overall 4 star experience We were upgraded to a deluxe room The rooms feel old and the bathroom I had felt very old and low water pressure. The... More

Great location, near all the downtown attractions. Nice building but it needs updating inside. The rooms are a bit tired. The Italian restaurant is poor - not a hint of authenticity. The Corner Bar Has no atmosphere. The Lobby Bar is busy and the best feature of the hotel. Didn't try the French restaurant but it looked fairly empty most... More

If you like historic buildings, take the time to visit the Peabody. So beautiful. So many historical photos everywhere. Missed the 'duck walk' but found a couple of them happily handing out in the lobby fountain.

Went there at 5 PM to see the ducks. There were so many people and so little space you couldn't see a thing. If I was going to do this I would arrive a lot earlier to get a spot in front. But if you're from a place that has a lot of ducks e.g. Northern MI, this is no... More

Of course you have to see the ducks. Arrive early, get a drink at the bar and listen to the history and the 3min duck walk.

Something different and funny at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. At 11 and at 5 they have a ceremony of marching the ducks! It's a real spectacle with a red carpet rolled out from the fountain in the center of the hotel to the elevator. A John Phillips Souza March begins to plat and the Duck Master directs the ducks...
