Reviews for The Peabody Memphis
Very nice, it was fun seeing the ducks. Room was large and very nice. Had a street view. Was walking distance to FedEx Arena and all of downtown. Lobby bar was crazy busy all day and night - I've never seen a hotel lobby bar so busy like this.

The location and history of the Peabody are terrific. The bell stand was solid but the front desk and other staff were hit or miss. The rooms and amenities need updating. The ducks are a bit tired and the value proposition for room cost to quality is lacking. Uniquely charming because of the ducks and history, yet the hotel needs to beef up the overall amenities and quality of the place

The Peabody Hotel is one of the Mid-South's jewels. If you are into gilded age architecture, this grand building is a must see. It is a cool, refined place to have a Coke, relax, and plan your day in Memphis. But, since this is the South, y'all need learn to slow y'alls speech and relax a little. And-- y'all probly noticed-- we got our traditions. I'm jes gonna tell it plain, all y'all reading this simply mus' take in the Peabody's most famous tradition. 'Cuz at 11:00 a.m. that pretty gold elevator on the lef is gonna carry Memphis' most famous residents from they penthouse down to see y'all. If it wasn't for all the fanfare, these celebs could be easy ta miss. So, jus' to be sure y'all know they're coming, at 10:45 the bellman will roll out the red carpet, and the suspense will start buildin'. Who is comin'? Is it Elvis, Muddy Waters, Paul Gasol, B.B. King, John Grisham, Project Pat . . . ? Y'all will find out at exactly 11:00 a.m., because Memphis' most famous residents are always on time. At 11, the elevator door will open and Memphis' foot tall, web footed celebrities will show out for all y'all! Quack, quack, here they come! If y'all get to Memphis y'all must go see it. It's one of the South's great traditions.

Great place to stay if you are in town for business or pleasure. Clean, great service, and very helpful staff. The Ducks were awesome, a once in a lifetime experience. Location is perfect, just a few blocks from Beale Street.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peabody. My kids were particularly impressed with the front-row viewing of the Duck March and seeing the rooftop "Duck Palace". The architecture and history of the building was fascinating. We took advantage of an off-season package which made it more affordable for us. The two double beds in our room were cozy, (especially with 5 of us) but the sheets were so comfy! The room was spotless and decorated beautifully. We didn't try any of the food there, but did hit the pool for an evening swim. The pool was smallish for a hotel of that size, and really didn't have very much of a shallow end, but the staff was friendly and of course my kids had a wonderful time. (The hot tub was very small), and you can't really see the pool if you are in it!) Again, the attention to detail was amazing. The location was amazing-- about a 10 minute walk (with kids) from Beale Street. We felt very comfortable!
