One night in Memphis

My family (2 adults + 3 tweens/teens) shared a Deluxe Room on a Saturday night. The room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed spending time in the lobby, even though there was a loud band on the mezzanine floor. Over all a very nice hotel but we didn't have time to really take advantage of the amenities. Don't miss the duck march to the fountain!

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.

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.

Overall a good stay in Memphis

The hotel is gorgeous. Getting to the self parking was a bit confusing - had to call the front desk for assistance. The room overall was nice - very clean bathroom. Their was a pubic hair on the chair - so we stayed away from it. They provide bath robes - great shampoo, conditioner, etc. There is no coffee in the room for you coffee drinkers. Mattresses are fabulous! We had a river view which was nice. Excellent location.

Christmas

A beautiful hotel, especially during holidays. However, our room was not cleaned on Christmas. The hotel desk person was apologetic when I mentioned it. We have stayed here before and service is very good. There was an additional charge for morning paper, use of internet, athletic club and coffee (5:30-7:30) Many hotels do charge for internet service if requested, but other amenities are usually included in hotel charge. We did read the paper and get a cup of coffee...hardly worth a $9.95 daily charge.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Near Beale Street and Fed EX Forum and quite a few good restaurants. A 4 star restaurant in hotel. Ducks in the lobby/bar fountain always an attraction. Plus the lobby is beautiful. Hotel rooms spacious with comfortable chairs.
