Reviews for The Peabody Memphis
This is a lovely historic hotel, but the self parking is not explained or signed well, & despite my remarks on this, & staff agreeing it can be confusing, no-one seemed bothered about it! And, my 5.30 am alarm call, explained at length to the blonde on duty the evening before, did not come through, & we left an hour late, annoyed, grumpy, & flustered for our long drive to Chattanooga. We enjoyed the rest of our time here.

This hotel is a first rate place to stay in Memphis. The location is outstanding, near Beale Street and many of the better restaurants and attractions in town. The lobby is striking and quite unusual- a wonderful place to meet for cocktails, as well as the watching the ducks march through at 11 AM and 5 PM. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The only negative was that the room I was in was very small, with a miniscule bathroom without counter space. Otherwise, an excellent hotel.

Came in late on quick in and out business trip and the front desk, room, bed, etc was all amazing. Beautiful property!! The only bad thing was it seemed like I could hear my rowdy drunk neighbors on each side of me being loud when they came in late night after partying!! Even with that it was a great quick stay and will be back again in the future!

Where to start? The Peabody is really the only Grand Hotel for probably a few hundred miles in any direction. Downtown Memphis is rundown and seedy at best and the Peabody is the only thing that makes it worth visiting. That said the hotel is spectacular in every sense, and the famous Peabody Ducks make it even better! Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, the building is wonderful and the staff generally friendly. The foyer is a thing of considerable beauty to be savored - it is said that the Mississippi Delta starts at the fountain in the Peabody foyer, which I tend to agree with. No other hotel has this degree of grandeur and style. Sadly the hotel has cut more than a few corners over the years: cheaper generic toiletries in the rooms rather than the Peabody branded items of years ago, and they have adopted the awful practice of price gouging from the airlines - every possible thing has a surcharge or an extra fee attached. I really wish that they would revert to a more classy approach, but I guess the accountants have been in there and this is the result. For example: $20/day to park your own car; $12.50/day for wifi, ~$10 for a plastic duck to take home and so on. Surely these could simply be part of the room rate? Overall, a spectacular establishment if somewhat overpriced. Stay here at least once, you will not regret it.

My fiance' and I had an amazing stay at this luxurious property for the Beale St. Music Festival. After one look at the lobby, the shopping, and the ducks, we were in love with this place. Don't miss out on the scrumptious Memphis style BBQ at Central or Interstate!
