“Fab location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

One block over from Beale street.....Ideal location for some of the main attractions in Memphis. Checked in late first night and room right beside the lift....it clanked and clattered for an hour so we asked reception if there was another room and we were upgraded to a suite. Room lovely, lots of nice touches like bath mat, toilet paper, pillow got ducks on them. Very comfy bed. However concierge didn't really have a clue when we asked her for info about local diners.......and info about hop on hop off bus which is sold by the hotel. Duck parade worth a visit even if you are not living at the hotel. Good size of gym with great variety of equipment. Only 4 stars due to no coffee in room and noisy last night with doors banging all night and the incredibly loud tv blaring at 1am next door.

“Fantastic hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

The South's grand hotel! Arrived early morning and able to check in immediately - always a plus! The room was great, absolutely enormous and very nicely furnished. We ate breakfast in the hotel during our stay and would highly recommend this - not too expensive and great service. Everyone visiting the hotel has to see the famous duck parade and the amount of visitors who come along to the hotel is unbelievable but make sure that you go up to the roof to see the ducks in their 'duck house'! If visiting Memphis again, we would not hesitate to come back to this hotel!

“Silly Ducks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

This hotel is gorgeous. We didn't get to stay here but came by a couple of times to shop and watch the duck parade. They do a great job of getting you hyped to see some mallard ducks enter their fountain very day at 11 am. At 5 pm the ducks exit to their suite. Very cute. It's a good view from the balcony.

“Watch the Ducks March in Opulence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The Lobby Bar is a comfortable place where one can sit on sofas and plush chairs. The ornate ceiling with its intricate detailing is definitely a sight. At 5 P.M., the ducks parade, and you can enjoy a cocktail as you watch the show. Service is impeccable. Nice touch--the bathroom paper napkins are engraved with the Peabody insignia!

“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We go to Memphis every year for the Southern Cotton Ginners Association convention and always stay at the Peabody Hotel. All the rooms have been refurbished- and our room was lovely. The lobby is a great place for social gatherings. Love love love the ambiance.
