Great experience! Took my small dog and they treated her like a family member with a Peabody feeding bowl and personalized treat! The staff was great and overall presence really made my Memphis experience that much better.

Beautiful hotel

We watched the ducks enter the fountain at 11AM. The ducks were very active then, enjoying bathing and splashing around. The experience could be improved by an addition by the hotel like an included picture by the fountain or something fun to take home. We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Memphis. We ate at the fabulous Texas de Brazil which we walked to from the The Peabody. It is literally next door! Then we attended a performance at The Playhouse on the Square...wonderful!

Perfect Peabody

The Peabody is located a few blocks from Beale street and not more than 30 minutes by car to top restaurants, though some are also within walking distance. Shopping, drinking, and eating activities in the hotel are wonderful. The parade of the ducks a nice added feature. Service is execellent, which in our case included the front desk, wake up calls, room service, maid service, and the security office. The only two negatives - pool is in the basement, no sunlight at all and while the rooms offer wireless connection, the connection is not secured forcing one to work in the business center for an additional charge.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Take the Blues City Tour of Sun Studio - lots of music history in Memphis - gospel, blues, country and rock n roll. Stax and civil rights museum also worth visiting. Go to Graceland and see other Elvis exhibits near the property. Whether you liked him or not, a good walk in music history and in this icon's life.

Great location

Check in was easy. Valets were sort of pushy about leaving the keys to the car in the circle with them while we checked in. Self-parking was a breeze. You can come and go as you please with your room key. The hotel itself is a landmark, so expect a very crowded lobby and elevators, especially around check out time (11AM) and when the ducks march in/out (11AM and 5PM). But, didn't have to wait in a line with express check out. The location can't be beat. Walked to Beale no problem. Close to Redbirds and Grizzlies. As others have said, you will be charged $10 for services you probably won't use like shoe shine service. Our reservation had gotten lost in the shuffle, but they checked us in anyway with our confirmation code.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Get to Beale Street early before bars start charging a cover. Get your hand stamped or a bracelet before you leave any bar to get back in without paying a cover.

Susie's Birthday

Loved the location. Staff was very helpful in directing us to sights. Lobby space was gracious and inviting. Room was tremendous in space and beautifully appointed. The shops available in the hotel complex were filled with interesting if slightly expensive items. The cleaning staff was efficient and very friendly. Loved the duck walk. The amenities in the room were very nice. We had a great time and would certainly stay at the Peabody the next time we are in Memphis.

The hotel was centrally located so that most of our sight seeing and dining was within easy walking distance eliminating the need to retrieve and use the car.

Nice place!

We were celebrating our 43rd anniversary (we honeymooned in Memphis in 1967) and decided we wanted to go to Beale Street and experience the atmosphere and enjoy the music. We were not disappointed. We also enjoyed our stay in the Peabody even though it was only one night. It is a beautiful building.

Great location

The hotel is nice, but the check in was slow. It took about 15 minutes to get checked in. The ducks in the lobby and the lobby bar were cool. The parking garage was far from the room. The room was small, but decorated nice. It was very clean and neat. I could not get the WiFi connection to work in my room. The hotel is in a great location. Close to Beale St and the trolley line. Overall, the hotel was good.
