  • I wasn't sure about watching the march of the ducks when my wife suggested it. I had read prior reviews about large crowds and a very quick "march" so I wasn't sure it was worth it. But we'd probably ...  more »
  • I had never even heard of this before I went to Memphis and I recommend getting yourself there for either the march in or the march out - there are always 100-300 people there watching from the ground...  more »
  • This is a lovely place to see a wonderful tradition of the ducks. It's a real ceremony that sees the ducks come down from their penthouse to swim all day in the hotel fountain! Sit by the bar and you ...  more »

  • We went to the Peabody for our honeymoon and loved it. There was a large bug in our room the first night so my husband asked the front desk to treat our room the next day while we out. Instead, they upgraded our room and gave us free breakfast the next morning. They even moved the mini-fridge we had requested between rooms. The initial room was treated by pest control as well. For the duck viewing we went each time that we were staying in the hotel. We had great seats the last morning by arriving 45 minutes early. We still managed to get good seats the morning before by only arriving 20 minutes early. The evening we were there we sat on the mezzanine level. I am very glad that people are only allowed to sit in the bar area. At one point a woman was standing and blocking the view we had been waiting for. A server very kindly asked her to move and she was able to find a different seat. Upon entering the bar area, every patron is told that you are only allowed to sit during the march. There was one man working in the lobby bar on Sunday and Monday night that was absolutely exceptional.
  • This was a very fun experience. Nice room but very small bathroom. Hallway was noisy because of remodeling but earplugs were provided. We really enjoyed the duck march. Employees were very kind and someone even brought me Tylenol at no additional charge!
  • Everyone I visit the Peabody, I find something more to love. I was there for a meeting, and as we were parking, a man in a golf cart drove up and asked us if we would like a ride to the entrance. We jumped in, and he drove us to the entrance. He then asked one of the other Peabody associates where our meeting was going to be held, then he drove us to another location and dropped us off so we would have a shorter walk to the conference hall. We didn't ask for any of that, but he did it, just because, it is the Peabody. I wish I knew his name because I would give him a shout out for excellent service. The man who drove around the Peabody parking garage on the evening of 8/23/2018, thank you very much for your kindness and great customer service. We will see you again because we will definitely return.
  • This hotel is awesome. It's a 4 star hotel with nice restaurants. We saw the duck March which they schedule everyday at 11 AM and 5 pm. Great drinks at the bar. A great dessert shop and a happy hour where the drinks and appetizers are half off. Rooms are quite expensive but I think it is well worth it.
  • You do not have to be a guest of this historic and elegant hotel to enjoy it. Come on in and have a cocktail at the fabulous bar. The lobby is elegant and spacious. There is comfortable seating. We ordered a coffee that can be shared for two. They serve a delightful set with cookies and a French press enough for 4 cups. Price is not expensive. With tip, less than 16 dollars. Sometimes it's nice to get off the street and take a break - soak up the charm of a city and enjoy the older hotels. The Peabody is just this sort of place. And the Ducks! They are in the lobby. You'll have to go there to read the story about the ducks (since 1930) on the cocktail napkin. All part of the fun.
