Here are a few must-pack items that we would suggest bringing along for your stay at The Peabody Memphis: sunscreen, sunglasses, light clothes, your e-reader or laptop, an empty stomach and walking shoes. No matter the time of year, Memphis is usually pretty sunny, so it is essential to have sunglasses and sunscreen. Even though the southern hotel is air-conditioned, the temperatures outside are warm most of the year. Make sure to have lighter clothing for the heat and humidity that the area brings.
Since the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel doesn’t yet loan out e-readers or laptops, be sure to bring your own, if you want to keep up with your work or that latest novel.
Bring your appetite so you can try the seasonal menu at Chez Philippe, the hotel’s onsite Four-Star restaurant. Or, you can venture outside the hotel to one of Memphis’ many barbecue joints — after all, the city is home to the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.
The Peabody’s location is ideal for sightseeing, especially on foot. Be sure to have a pair of walking shoes so you can explore the nearby historic Beale Street, AutoZone Park, the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and the Gibson Guitar Factory.
