Dating back to 1925, this hotel is one of the city's oldest and most grand. though some recent visitors say the guest rooms and small bathrooms could use a refresh. Still, travelers do seem to appreciate that The Peabody provides modern amenities, such as 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access, while maintaining its old-timey charm. With multiple on-site restaurants and bars, you can be sure you won't go hungry after a day exploring the city. What's more, the hotel is home to a resort-style spa, a fitness center and a business center. Now part of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the hotel allows I Prefer members to earn and redeem points.

Critic Reviews



The lobby has the original stained-glass skylights and the travertine-marble fountain that is home to the hotel's resident ducks. (The ducks parade to the fountain at 11 am, and they depart the fountain at 5 pm.



The Peabody is a Memphis landmark. Perhaps best known for its signature ducks that march twice daily to splash in the hotel's fountain, this grand hotel is also a shopping destination (it's the home of Lansky's, Elvis' favorite clothing store).



After a major renovation that ended in late 2013, the rooms gained contemporary touches that include boldly patterned rugs, geometric mirrors, sculptural-looking headboards, keyless card systems, and soundproof, energy-efficient windows.
