We would describe the style of The Peabody Memphis with these five words: historic, traditional, elegant, graceful and quirky. The main lobby and all the public spaces at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel were renovated to accurately reflect their original 1925 look. Today’s lobby fountain remains the one piece of travertine marble sent from Italy for the hotel’s 1925 opening. On the National Historic Register and a member of the Historic Hotels of America, The Peabody Memphis allows you to enter into a different era.
Often referred to as the “South’s Grand Hotel,” this luxury Memphis hotel is also traditional. Rooms are not adorned with tons of technology and gadgets; instead, they are simple and minimalist. With artifacts donated by friends of the hotel, a public memorabilia room showcases the traditions of the hotel from its 1869 beginnings to present day.
Oozing with southern pride, The Peabody Memphis is both elegant and graceful. Its signature restaurant, Chez Philippe, embodies these elements in its decor and service. Plus, you’ll see that pride in its elegant afternoon tea service.
Lastly, setting itself apart from other Four-Star hotels, The Peabody Memphis has a quirky style that’s all its own — just look at its love of all things duck. The world famous Peabody Ducks are emblazoned on pillowcases, golf balls and clothes, giving the Memphis institution an eccentric and fun style.
