Great Stay and Great Location

The trip was an anniversary gift to ourselves. The hotel has a great location near Beale street and plenty of great restaurants. The hotel has been well maintained with customer service being their #1 priority. The staff always greated you with southern hospitality that made you feel like a king or queen. Be careful of the service fee. If you do not want to use the health club, shoe shine and a few other amenities make sure to opt out of the service fee when you register (I would mention $ amount, but that is restricted by [...]). There is a fee for parking a car as well.

The blue plate cafe near the courthouse square had a great variety of good southern cooking. If you like a good dry rub BBQ the rendevouz is even closer.

Peabody

This was an excellent trip overall. The atmosphere in the lobby is great with the lobby bar and music. The duck march was also great. I was in town for the Lakers-Grizzlies game and it was great. I really liked that downtown area overall. I did miss In-Room Coffee and the rooms were a bit small. I would highly rate staff at the Peabody, very accomodating.

I took my own car, but was not familiar with Memphis and found the interstate system confusing. Have a GPS and study your route closely.

A Touch of Class

The Peabody is a very nice hotel. excellent location in downtown Memphis. You can walk to many area attraction including Beale Street, Charles Vergos Rendezvous, Etc. I feel that the Peabody is a must for anybody at least one time. Don't expect to get out of there cheap though. the credit card on file will serve as a reminder. parking is extra, incidental expenses, are as well. buyer beware.

Beautiful hotel

The hotel was beautiful. A large fountain was in the middle of the lobby with live ducks swimming in it. At 5pm, they do the "duck walk", where a duckmaster leads the ducks to their room. It was a sight to see. People come from all other hotels to see this. Our room wasn't large, but it was comfortable, beautiful and very clean. Room service was pricy, but we expected it at 3am! If I ever make it back to Memphis, this is where I'll stay.

Great, Classic Hotel.

Great Classic hotel. Loved the bar in the lobby. The ducks marching in a 11:00am were great fun. Very polite staff. Enjoyed the fitness center pool and whirlpool. Very convenient location for restaurants, Beale St. music, and trolley cars.

Peabody - everything and more!

The hotel staff was very courteous and everything about our stay was perfect...fine detail down to the bathmat with the embossed duck and the small duck-shaped soap. Seeing the Peabody ducks was on my wife's "bucket list"!
