Peabody - everything and more!

The hotel staff was very courteous and everything about our stay was perfect...fine detail down to the bathmat with the embossed duck and the small duck-shaped soap. Seeing the Peabody ducks was on my wife's "bucket list"!

The Peabody- the Grand Dame of Memphis

Lovely. The Main Reception floor is the way hotels use to be. Grand, Spacious, Elegant. Just waiting for you to sit down, have a drink and watch the people float by. The receptions for the "Ducks" at mid-morning and late afternoon are a bit overdone, but fun for the tourists. I especially liked the areas of the hotel which had information, photos and memoribilia about the history of the hotel.The health club was very nice, pool lovely (but a bit noisy with children splashing about and screaming)and spa well equipped. My manicure was not the best I've ever had, and a touch expensive, but it was adequate and the manicurist was friendly. The massage by [...] (? I think that was his name) was SUPERB. I've traveled extensively around the world, and that massage, only 30 minutes mind you, was the second best massage I've ever had in my life. The first was on a beach in Bali. I only wish he had been available for another 1 hour massage. He was very booked up, and I can see why.The Thursday roof party was a wonderful surprise. The drinks were not fabulous, but the beer was cold and the afternoon warm. The hotel had stunning views of downtown Memphis, and the Mississippi at sunset. Good music and lots of people. What a treat. The reception staff were all very friendly and professional.A block from the hotel was Beale street. Very enjoyable. I was sorry to see that many of the downtown businesses, shops and restaurants were closed/out of business, due to the recession.

One block away was Beale Street with lots of bars, restaurants and blues. About 4 blocks away is the civil rights museum at the Lorraine Motel. And, of course, a 20 minute ride away will take you to Graceland.

fun time for all

The Peabody Memphis treats you like you are important to them. Even the cleaning staff would greet you in the hallways. And the ducks are a hoot!

Excellent choice

Great place to stay, we were there for the food and the fun. Restaurants are close by and Beale St. is right there. The beds are a generous queen size and very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and clean. Staff is friendly and very helpful.

We love and think you will too..... but definitely not diet food.... Cozy Corner Restaurant is on N Parkway (by St Jude) really delicious BBQ, and if you like fried chicken you have to go to Gus's, they are on S Front St (by nothing) it doesn't get any better. Be prepared to wait for a table at Gus's, we waited about 20-25 min but it was so worth it.

I love Peabody!

Just wish I had more time to spend there. Friendly staff. Spacious room. Beautiful old hotel. And of course don't miss the duck walk at 11 and/or 5. Kids love it & adults to too! Convenient to downtown sites. Ten minutes to Graceland. Only down side - no coffee pot in room. Free coffee in deli from 6-8. Personally I'd prefer a pot in the room if they can't go past 8 am. I got there at 8:10 & had to pay.

Old hotel that was completely modern. Location was in walking distance to everything. Rooms were large and the bed was great. This hotel has a great well deserved reputation.

Beale street has dozens of music venues. The streets are closed off to cars and you can have legal open containers of alcohol. Mudd island is great for explaining the Mississippi River. The views are great pay extra for the museum it was very informative.
