Only in America can ducks get the red carpet treatment!

We didn't stay at The Peabody so this review is based on a tiny bit of its history which intrigued us. We had heard the story of the Peabody ducks coming down the lift and red carpet twice a day and living in their own penthouse so we just had to see it for ourselves during our tour of the... More

What a beautiful hotel. They even have some Elvis history on the second floor. You must see the ducks that entertain in the fountain. The piano shown here belonged to Francis Scott Key! Auesome hotel and a must see. Lanskys is located in the hotel lobby area.

The Peabody Hotel came highly recommended, so I had to see for myself. The hotel is beautiful, friendly staff and amazing history. The best part was watching the ducks walk down the red carpet to the fountain...the best!

My 8 year old said: this is stupid. The duck master with the fancy red jacket was kind of snobby to people who were shuffling in the lobby while he made his big speech. Not worth it to go early and try to get a view of the "parade." I get that it's local history. If we weren't staying at... More

Visited here to see the ducks come down the lift at 11 o'clock, you need to get there by 10.30 we went for a coffee before it started in the lounge which was reasonable, when you get there you need to go by the lifts or sit near the fountain people come in and start to stand in front of... More

This is a must-see hotel. Even you if you stop in to see the annual "march of the ducks" at 11am and 5pm local time, grab a drink in the lobby and enjoy the show. The rooms are historic and are furnished with ornate pieces to give it a antique flare. However I thought the carpeting definitely needed to be... More

Beautiful old hotel in the heart of downtown. They don't make em like this anymore. Service always at the ready and were so accommodating. Even gave me a room upgrade for my 40th birthday as well as some free gifts and chocolates! I guess my only downfall which is not really the hotel were the cocktails made in the Lobby... More

I have been staying at the Peabody since the 80's and hosted my wedding there in 2007. My wife and I have a great appreciation for the Peabody, but this trip, we had a few issues which made for an unenjoyable experience. We arrived with a late check-in and posted a do not disturb notice on our door. Housekeeping began... More

Such a beautiful hotel with lots of fancy character. The ducks are super cute and a big hit with the kiddos. Great location to see the sights In and around downtown Memphis. The service was great - straight up Southern Hospitality!
