Peabody Memphis

The Peabody Memphis is a living legend……a hotel that since its inception in 1869 has been infused with genuine Southern hospitality and uncommon elegance. The AAA Four- Diamond, Forbes Four-Star hotel offers an elite level of luxury and service to rank as one of the world’s finest hotels. A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Historic Hotels of America, The Peabody Memphis has consistently earned Meetings and Conventions’ Gold Key Award, Successful Meetings’ Pinnacle Award, and Convention South Readers’ Choice Award, and was named among the “Top Business Hotels” in America by Travel & Leisure. In 2018, The Peabody Memphis was named “Best Historic Hotel” by USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
The most famous residents, The Peabody Ducks, have gained celebrity status with television appearances (along with their Duckmaster) on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Sesame Street, the Oprah Winfrey Show and have also appeared in People magazine. Every day at 11:00 a.m., the Peabody Ducks are escorted from their penthouse home, on the Plantation Roof, to the lobby via elevator. Accompanied by the King Cotton March by John Phillip Sousa, the ducks then proceed across a red carpet to the hotel fountain, made of a solid block of Italian travertine marble. The ducks are then ceremoniously led back to their penthouse at 5:00 p.m.

ABOUT THE CITY

Conveniently located right in the heart of downtown Memphis, The Peabody is only a short walk to over 30 popular restaurants and nightclubs. You will love “walkin’ in Memphis,” being surrounded by live music on world-famous Beale Street and experiencing some of our finger-lickin’ good BBQ joints. Memphis has great attractions such as Graceland (the home of Elvis Presley), Sun Studio (recording facility where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and B.B. King began their careers), Stax Museum of American Soul Music (the only soul museum in the world), The National Civil Rights Museum, Auto Zone Park (located directly across the street from the hotel and home of the Memphis Redbirds) and the FedEx Forum (home of the Memphis Grizzlies NBA basketball team). A pathway on the historic Harahan Bridge allows pedestrians and bicyclists their own right of way. At nearly a mile in length, Big River Crossing is the longest public pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi River and connects downtown Memphis to Arkansas.
