The Peabody Memphis gets into the spirit of Christmas with festive holiday decorations, including a 30-foot Christmas tree in the lobby. Just outside the hotel’s signature dining room, Chez Philippe, are two pastry displays, which are different every year (in the past, there has been a toy soldier and Santa climbing out of the chimney). A gingerbread house is displayed near the front desk, and the mezzanine level has garland and twinkle lights strewn along its railings. The Lobby fountain has a more festive flower display than usual—it’s a must-see, considering the standard flower arrangements are already spectacular. Lastly, wreaths and 12 trees are placed throughout the hotel’s public and meeting spaces. The festive spirit at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is such a well-known tradition that many people come and take family pictures in front of the Peabody Christmas tree.
