We debated about whether we really cared about seeing a bunch of ducks walk out of an elevator and into a fountain but we decided we're only going to do this once and it only takes a few minutes so, why not ? We arrived at the Peabody Hotel at 10:30a for the ducks' 11:00a arrival and by the time... More

Gorgeous beautiful a step back in time. Cool dark wood, stained glass and beautiful piano music greet you as you walk in the doors. Lovely fountain and wonderful couches and chairs to relax in and have a drink while enjoying the music and surroundings. Huge flower arrangement towering over the fountain and just a lovely place

Just a fun place to go any day at 5 pm to see the Ducks! We first saw this wonderful custom 22 years ago, and it was just as much fun to return and see the ducks waddling from their swim in the fountain, along the red carpet to the lift.

I didn't stay at the hotel. We just came by for the duck walk. Beautiful hotel and a great view of the city from the roof.

This building has been empty for some time now, just nothing there anymore. You have to go outside to eat all restaurants are closed inside all shopping closed. I hear the hotel is still open but not even sure about that.

Peabody Hotel probably needs reviews, it has a long history of tradition and satisfied customers. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. You will not regret staying there.

This is a must stop for about 30-45 minutes. the ducks walk every morning at 11am. If it is the weekend, get there by 10:20. A nice picture spot in the lobby. Beautiful decor.

I read about the Peabody's famous duck parade as a must not miss event whilst researching my trip to Memphis and I have to say I was a little under whelmed. The bar area around the duck fountain gets very busy very quickly and you find yourself jostling for a position just to see. I finally found a place on... More

Lots of hanging round for the ducks to walk down the red carpet and get into the lift, but worth it, beautiful old hotel though
