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.

Get there at least 30 minutes early because even on weekdays, people line up to watch these ducks on parade. The duck master is a very pleasant man with great pride in his job. He goes through an explanation of the duties and the history of the hotel and the duck parade tradition. It seems silly, but it's a must-see... More

We didn't stay here but went into the lobby and shops. What a beautiful hotel. So classic and opulent. Beautiful architecture and be sure and ask about the ducks!

I'd known about the Peabody for many years and always wanted to try it. We did on this last trip and could not have been happier. From the moment we pulled in and were greeted by the valet staff, every employee was outstanding! Beautiful, clean, large room, comfy bed. Excellent bar downstairs to see the marching ducks tradition. Great location... More
