We have previously made several trips to Memphis and strolled through the Peabody. On this occasion we stayed here and it was a grand experience. Loved the decor and the feeling of nostalgia as we sat in the lobby bar sipping a Rusty Nail while waiting on the Duck Master to lead the Peabody ducks out of the fountain and... More

So we went to see the famous duck march and that's about all there is to it really ... There is a nice cocktail bar at the hotel and you can book yourself a table and have a tipple while watching the march which looks like the best way to do it, if not make sure you get there early... More

Went into the Peabody specifically to see the ducks on parade. Have to say, it was disappointing. For such a buildup, I expected more of "a show."

The entire reservation process was seamless and with a great recommendation upgraded to Club Level room. Room was exquisite and the hotel still has the look and feel of the old south. Chez Philippe is a gorgeous resturant with excellent service.

Such a lovely, old, but very well maintained hotel! We had a room on the 12th floor, it was beautifully appointed. Would highly recommend it!

You 100% have to go here to see the Peabody ducks. They come down in the elevator at 11am and go back up at 5pm, so make sure you go at least at one of these times to see them!

Very interesting. A beautiful hotel and lobby. Went to see the famous Peabody ducks. They have the history of the ducks in the lobby by the pond.

Beautiful hotel with a lot of history. Even if not staying there you can walk in the lobby to view the architecture and the fountain with the famous Peabody ducks.

Beautiful old original hotel. Lots of history and stories. Especially how the duck ceremony started. Be sure to get there about 1 hr. before it starts. It happens as fast as a duck can waddle.

Like you have walked thru the looking glass to a time of elegance! It gets busy for happy hour/duck parade...service can be a little slow.
