Wonderful Historic Hotel

The Peabody is a great, older hotel, right in the heart of Memphis. We didn't even need to rent a car, as Beale St. is only a few blocks away. The Lorraine Motel/Civil Rights Museum is also in walking distance, or there's a trolly down Main St. The two non-walking trips we took to Graceland and Sun Studios were easily reached by a tour bus from the hotel and a free shuttle from the Rock and Soul Museum (they go to Graceland as well, although we loved our bus driver's extra Elvis knowledge so are glad we decided on that option to Graceland). The ducks of course are the main attraction here, although you don't have to stay here to see them, but the lobby bar is a great place to unwind, and the main restaurant is a great place for a quick breakfast on the way out. We didn't try spa services or the other restaurants, so I can't speak to those, but it's a great hotel. As others have said, the rooms and bathrooms are small, but it's an older building, so that can't really be helped. There's wifi, helpful staff, and it's in walking distance to most attractions, so all in all was a great choice.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a free shuttle from the Rock and Soul Museum (walking distance from the Peabody) that will take you to Sun Studios and Graceland, both really worthwhile tours. Also, have a look at the coupons in your Graceland program, there are offers for other attractions.

The Peabody Hotel in Memphis

The Peabody Hotel was wonderful. Every thing looks and feels so clean. The ducks were great to watch. It was a two year anniversary and the location was great for walking to Beale Street. Lots of great blues music and great food. Don't miss BB King's.

Peabody overpriced

Hotel room was small, very over-priced, and the walls were paper thin. [...] Also, while there fire alarm went off and they evacuated the hotel. The ducks are cute, but not worth the cost.

The food on Beale St is excellent, so many good things to choose from. Heard a lot of people complain about the service at BB Kings, and it was slow at times. However, the food and music were great. Also, BBQ at Polly's was awesome. Gumbo at Rum Shakers (?) not soo good. Great lunch in Holiday Inn across from Peabody! Cuban Sandwich was very very good.

never again

The service revived fell far short of the price charged. I have stayed at every hotel down town. For the money most measure up. This place is just over priced.

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.
