Over The Peabody Memphis
Legendarisch, charmant, elegant en groots zijn bijvoeglijke naamwoorden die perfect dit luxe hotel typeren, waar de zuidelijke gastvrijheid u omarmt. De centrale ligging temidden van attracties als Beale Street, het Memphis Rock N Soul Museum, de Gibson Guitar Factory en Sun Studio doen bijna vergeten dat het hotel een populaire attractie op zich is. De beroemde Peabody Ducks marcheren dagelijks van en naar de Grand Lobby, een traditie die teruggaat tot 1933!

"Spectacular, Truly a Grand Hotel."
Where to start? The Peabody is really the only Grand Hotel for probably a few hundred miles in any direction. Downtown Memphis is rundown and seedy at best and the Peabody is the only thing that makes it worth visiting. That said the hotel is spectacular in every sense, and the famous Peabody Ducks make it even better! Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, the building is wonderful and the staff generally friendly. The foyer is a thing of considerable beauty to be savored - it is said that the Mississippi Delta starts at the fountain in the Peabody foyer, which I tend to agree with. No other hotel has this degree of grandeur and style. Sadly the hotel has cut more than a few corners over the years: cheaper generic toiletries in the rooms rather than the Peabody branded items of years ago, and they have adopted the awful practice of price gouging from the airlines - every possible thing has a surcharge or an extra fee attached. I really wish that they would revert to a more classy approach, but I guess the accountants have been in there and this is the result. For example: $20/day to park your own car; $12.50/day for wifi, ~$10 for a plastic duck to take home and so on. Surely these could simply be part of the room rate? Overall, a spectacular establishment if somewhat overpriced. Stay here at least once, you will not regret it.
"Amazing experience of tradition and class"
My fiance' and I had an amazing stay at this luxurious property for the Beale St. Music Festival. After one look at the lobby, the shopping, and the ducks, we were in love with this place. Don't miss out on the scrumptious Memphis style BBQ at Central or Interstate!
"Beautiful but trading on its reputation"
We enjoyed our stay, but I am glad we got a deal and didn't pay full price. Sure the location is ideal and the building is ornate and luxurious, but it cuts a few corners. Symbolic for me was that the toilet paper was the thinnest we came across in our USA accommodation. The room was very spacious and mainly well appointed but there were no sockets for chargers near the bed and my side of the bed was up against the window so there was no bedside table. Worst fault for me was that the breakfast was just adequate, we had better in many smaller places. Uninspired fresh fruit and no pancakes or waffles or eggs cooked to order and rather slow service. A hotel of this quality and price in the USA should wow with its breakfasts, Ducks are fun but the march a big gimmick to get you into the lobby ordering drinks early evening, we couldn't really see them marching for non-residents crowding in. So it was an experience for a discounted price, but doubt we'll be back to this hotel although hope to see more of Memphis one day.
"The Duck Hotel!"
This is an outstanding hotel right in the middle of Memphis. We were staying here for 3 nights as a short stop over on our way to New Orleans & Orlando. The hotel was historic and the rooms were beautiful! They even had little movement sensitive night lights around the bed so you did not trip on your way to the bathroom. All of the staff were extremely courteous and polite. We had several delicious meals right downtown which is in walking distance from the hotel. Great barbeque and jazz music. We also spent a day at Graceland. The Elvis mansion was much smaller than I thought it would be! Have fun and make sure to watch the ducks march into the lobby at least one time! This is also an historic action and you can read all about it in their lobby!
The Peabody is a first class hotel. It is old, historic, and beautiful. It is very clean, and all of the staff was very friendly. The price is reasonable for the location. The ducks are very charming. However, one should arrive early if one wants to see the march. The public is welcome which makes it very crowded.
