Expensive trip!!!

Very very, expensive, wonderful lobby&ducks were fab. However, rooms too small, noise from other rooms awful. TV and wi fi very poor. Some free toiletries but nothing else. Not a comfortable relaxing stay. Great to visit from another hotel!

Perfect vacation destination

Everybody that works at The Peabody are friendly, professional, helpful, and efficient. We loved every moment there. The beds were so comfortable, the temperature was perfect inside, and the rooms were clean and beautiful. And of course, the ducks.......:-)

spring getaway

It was a beautiful, historic hotel. Loved that it was so close to Beale Street and all the restaurants downtown. Watched the ducks but didn't get a good view.

The best staff

I'm 65 years old, and have stayed in too many hotels to count. The Peabody had by far the best staff I've ever encountered. Without exception, every member of the staff I met was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about their hotel and their city. Listen to them for recommendations on attractions, local dining, transportation, and great stories of the past. You won't regret it. Great people make a great hotel even better.

The Music City Café, has ribs that will melt in your mouth, but don't go there if you're afraid to use a dozen napkins to get the sauce off of your face and hands.

Almost perfection

We had a great time at the Peabody. The bed couldn't have been more comfortable and the room was very clean. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and the staff was very accommodating and super friendly. My only complaints were the quality of the bath products and the Fiji $4.00 water. I thought the water should have been complimentary being the room was $200.00. The hotel during the holidays really brings back all of the warm and comforting memories of Christmas in the past. I will definitely come back!

The grizzlies game was spectacular! I wouldn't buy fancy tickets because all of the seats are good in the arena. Stay away from scalpers, the cost isn't worth it. $10.00 general admission is where it's at!

This place deserves every star it has received !

The ducks in the fountain are a quaint addition, but what really matters is how busy it can be while the staff seem able to make service flow seamlessly, even when wits are longish. They upwell, offer advice, acknowledge requests... you name it, they are all well prepared. The location is ideal for river walks, visits to museums, Beale Street... this part of Memphis seems to finally be making a comeback and The Peabody Hotel is its star and upscale anchor. Check out special activities on roof -- where ballroom music is scheduled once, weekly.

Vacation break

When I checked in they did not have the room that I paid for which is the Superior room. All of the Superior rooms were booked with the king bed, all were left were the 2 doubles that I did not want. I tried to call ahead of time to check on the room but was not able to do because your booking is only available to them 24 hours before my arrival. Other than that the stay was okay.
