The Peabody Memphis is as well known for stupendous service and luxury living as it is for its marching ducks. The 13-story hotel and Memphis landmark opened in 1869 and has been a place of privilege ever since. Part of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a member of the well-established Preferred Hotel Group, is located just two blocks from famed Beale Street and near the Peabody Place entertainment complex. Its collection of traditional rooms and suites, including pet-friendly accommodations, are elegantly appointed with rich hues and regal furnishings. Residents have a fondness for The Peabody, and the hotel's Memorabilia Museum documents its place in history through a series of displays.

The Peabody features an array of dining options, from the Four-Star Chez Philippe to an Italian steakhouse. The Corner Bar offers live entertainment, while the Lobby Bar gives you a front row seat to the famed Peabody Ducks.
