Shannon in catering is one of the best in the business. I attended an event that my friends business was hosting and Shannon was on top of everything to make sure the guests felt comfortable. A plus service !!!!

Only the Peabody has the ducks in the lobby fountain, with the ducks' mansion upstairs on the rooftop. Seeing the ducks march out or back home at the end of the day is worth standing in line for! But there are other hotels in Memphis that visitors should consider. Downtown there's the Madison Hotel and the Westin, and in East... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our three nights here. No complaints. Excellent bed, linens, pillows, bath, toiletries. Sunday brunch was fabulous with unending mimosas and far more food than we could eat. Lovely small indoor pool and hot tub. And ducks.

The hotel was beautiful and the staff were amazing, however, we were awaken by our neighbors very loudly engaging in intimate activity. We have small children which we had to then explain things to them. This ruined the whole experience.

This is a beautiful hotel the ducks were fun to watch. It's not a new hotel so you get the old charm and charisma we enjoyed where it was located it was walking distance to some fun things. Would love to visit again

Well after my girlfriend and I had the worst experience at the Extended Stay Airport location we called the Peabody. I was so embarrassed about taking her to the worst hotel in Memphis I needed to take her to the best. I called the hotel on Friday morning at 1am. I explained my situation and was treated as if I...

During our visit to Memphis, we toured the Peabody Hotel and were able to enjoy the décor, ambience and flavour of a grand southern hotel. While visiting the hotel, we were advised of and attended the morning duck walk to the central fountain in the grand hall next to the registration desk. What a delight, we all found the procession...

This is a really cute way to spend an hour in Memphis. The Peabody is a beautiful, old hotel in downtown Memphis with live ducks that come down on the elevator from their rooftop home and walk the red carpet to the fountain in the lobby. They plop into the fountain and spend the day until 5 oclock when they... More
