A must see - just to say you've done that! The hotel welcomes visitors, even it you aren't staying there. The ducks walk the red carpet twice a day. At 11 am they come down the elevator to walk to the fountain in the middle of the lobby. Kids get to sit on the floor for a up close view.... More

Just went for cocktails but loved the ambience. Would like to stay at the hotel sometime. Fond of the richness and opulence of years gone by. A happy place.

Arrive early and see the Duck March! They usher the kids to sit along side the red carpet for a great view! It's beautiful on the inside, especially the Duck fountain and ceiling! There's some great shops too!

I have to admit I was a bit sceptical first when I read about it and we mainly went because of our three little ones but it was good fun and the hotel is lovely and definitely worth a visit. Would I go if I had no children ? probably not unless I was nearby, but it is very sweet... More

This was part of our city tour of Memphis and although quirky it was fun to see. I reviewed the Holiday Inn Memphis and I think the ducks here at the Peabody are treated better than paying guests across road at the Holiday Inn Memphis. Would have stayed here if I'd know. The restaurant was excellent where we had lunch.

The March of the Ducks to and from the Fountain in the center of the lobby is quite entertaining... Definitely a MUST-SEE while in Memphis. I have to admit, I went multiple times and enjoyed it every time !!

This hotel is amazing. It's so iconic and has a great history. The marching Peabody Ducks are so cute. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the main lobby is rated in the top ten places to people watch the service is exceptional - to the point where we were asked by the Porter 'what bought us to Memphis' and we mentioned...
