The Peabody Memphis

A soaring Southern charmer
VERIFIED LUXURY
The Peabody is a Memphis landmark. Perhaps best known for its signature ducks that march twice daily to splash in the hotel's fountain, this grand hotel is also a shopping destination (it's the home of Lansky's, Elvis' favorite clothing store).

Rooms are spacious and classically decorated, with plenty of room for work or rest. The hotel's impressive array of amenities include a comprehensive health club, an indoor pool and Feather’s Spa and Salon.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Peabody’s world-famous Duck March takes place daily at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the hotel lobby. The Peabody ducks, when not splashing around the lobby fountain, live like royalty in their rooftop Royal Duck Palace.
  • Situated in the heart of downtown Memphis, the historic hotel is a few blocks from a myriad of attractions, such as historic Beale Street, the Gibson Guitar Factory and the Orpheum Theatre. You can explore the “Home of the Blues” with ease and convenience.
  • Whether you’re having a cocktail at the Lobby Bar or delighting in the Peabody Ducks, you never know whom you may rub elbows with as celebrities, tourists, socialites and business travelers mingle here.
  • The luxury Memphis hotel is the only place in town to experience high tea in the proper English manner. Set in the hotel’s Four-Star Chez Philippe, afternoon tea is the epitome of Southern hospitality and tradition.
  • Loved by locals and out-of-towners alike, the rooftop parties at the Peabody Memphis are highlights of the social calendar.
Things to Know
  • The ducks are the Memphis hotel’s theme (and its mascot), and they adorn everything from pillowcases to soaps and pastries. The only place you will not see the ducks is on any of the hotel’s restaurant menus.
  • The luxury Memphis hotel, one of Elvis Presley’s favorites, may not have the latest modern gadgets. What it lacks in technology, the hotel makes up for in grandeur and commitment to customer service.
  • This Four-Star hotel recently began to offer a limited number of pet-friendly guest rooms. If you have allergies, don’t worry; the pet-friendly rooms are confined to one area of the hotel to prevent anyone with allergies from discomfort.
  • Early risers rejoice: coffee at The Peabody Deli & Desserts is complimentary before 8 a.m.
The Rooms
  • The rooms at The Peabody Memphis are traditional in style. Each room is minimalist in decor and gadgets, allowing you to unwind without too many distractions.
  • Of course, you won’t be completely without technology in your room — open the armoire to find a flat-screen television.
  • The gentle color scheme is made up of soft yellows and reds, which accent the classic furniture.
  • The rooms have changed and been expanded since the Four-Star hotel first opened in 1925, so each guest room is unique. The original rooms were very small and their outline can still be seen on the ceiling of some of the rooms.
  • Giving the historic Memphis hotel a quirky and fun vibe, the baths come with three signature duck soaps and a duck floor mat.
The Restaurants
  • The hotel’s signature dining room is the Chez Phillipe, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant that serves classic French cuisine with a Southern twist in a four- or seven-course tasting menu format.
  • The Memphis institution is committed to showcasing fresh and local ingredients on its seasonal menu—think caramelized fig salad, smoked shrimp and grits, rabbit leg confit and a trio of crème brûlée.
  • Capriccio Grill is an Italian Steakhouse specializing in pasta dishes as well as U.S. prime steaks and chops.
  • The Peabody Deli & Desserts serves morning coffee, continental breakfast, salads, sandwiches and popular desserts from the Peabody Pastry Shop. Try the Peabody duck cookie, a nod to the hotel’s famous residents.
