This world-renowned, AAA Four Diamond hotel combines unrivaled elegance and style with historic detail and timeless sense of grandeur. Southern hospitality and charm epitomize Peabody Memphis, from its impeccable room service to an in-house clothier for upscale apparel. The Forbes Four Star hotel, originally built in 1869 and re-established at its present location in 1925, is set right in the center of town.

Dining

Gourmands will love the Peabody's restaurant choices. Four-star Chez Philippe features international and "Neuvo Southern" cuisine served in the hotel's signature dining room. Capricciio Grill, the hotel's casual Italian steakhouse, specializes in an array of pasta dishes. Breakfast and lunch options can be found at the Peabody Deli & Desserts, and afternoon tea is offered Wednesday through Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

Rooms

Accommodations -- 464 rooms and 15 suites -- seamlessly blend stylish décor and sumptuous furnishings. In-room dining is available 24 hours a day.

Property features

Unrivaled service sets this acclaimed hotel apart. Guests can enjoy same-day dry cleaning, 24-hour licensed babysitting services, and nightly turn-down service.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Peabody knows the trouble I've seen

Did not have room reserved had to downgrade. They lost my luggage from curb. Wifi did not work and desk/concierge did not know how to fix it. When I found bags, took 30 minutes to get help with luggage trolley. What the heck did I pay for? Any other hotel would have had to be better. but it is pretty and clean.

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.

One night family stay

It is a nice hotel, beautiful ornaments, and nice pieces of art. It is a part of Memphis history. However, I think it is the past. It shows tremendous wear and tear. Including: carpets in the rooms and hallways. We were stunned seeing a big cockroach walking in the middle of the bathroom. When I pointed it out to the staff I was reassured that there is a police for the cleaning and spraying the rooms. Nobody from management bothered talking to us. Anyway, we still like the place but not worth the money spend.

Not Satisfactory

The hotel was nice and historic, but the only 4 elevators made getting to and from your room a hassle. At check out time we waited 20 minutes for an elevator with room before we had to lug our heavy luggage down seven flights of stairs in order to not miss check out time.

Historic Charm

The Peabody is such a grand hotel down to every detail. Our room was very small - I'm sure they have larger rooms - and the bathroom was extremely tiny. No where to put cosmetics or sundries. A large person wouldn't be able to turn around in there. No cofee maker in the room. We could hear everyone in the adjacent rooms doing everything a person does in a room. Lots of noise from people talking in the hallways as they came in very late throughout the night. We could hear doors open and closing so really didn't get a great night's sleep. There was a wedding while we stayed and the band sounded like it was outside of our room. They did stop at 11:00 pm but we had a hard time listening to TV. However, the location is the best. We walked to everything. And of course, the duck march is really cute.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Two blocks and you're in Blues - Jazz heaven. Great music that starts early and fantastic food that goes well into the wee hours of the morning.
