This historical hotel charms on several fronts. Let's get the cute duck discussion out of the way. . .the duck tradition was intriguing, even for little old grown up me, and my 10 and 12 year old got a LOT of mileage out of the twice daily ritual. Not to be missed.
Walking through and hanging out in the grand lobby was great. . .piano entertainment every night, lots of history and atmosphere. The deli had a good selection of pastries, homemade oatmeal and basic breakfast options in the am, with an unusually gourmet selection of pastries for that early evening sweet tooth.
Service was good, employees very polite and helpful, and went out of their way to help us. Josh in the steakhouse and host Chris were especially kind to help us one night, as my little boy was dying for a piece of chocolate mousse cake in the just closed deli. Not a problem-while the rest of the family dined from the steakhouse menu, a piece of cake was cheerfully retrived for him.
The parking garage was a bit of a hike, although was accessible through a walkway. I found it a bit confusing upon arrival as to where valet parking was.
Room was comfortable and elegant, bathroom was complete, but smallish, as typical with most historic hotels. Bring a hanging toiletry bag to hang on the door hook, it will make things much easier.
Right across from the ballpark, down the street from the Belz Museum of Asian Art (impressive) and a short walk to the historic and useful trolley line.
I was so surprised how much I enjoyed our Memphis stay, and the atmosphere of the Peabody was integral to our stay, a unique historic property.
