Let me start by saying I am kind of a travel geek in that, because I travel a lot, I have kept a list ranking all the hotels I have stayed in. Long at the top of my list had been the Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Well no longer. The Peabody has taken over my top spot.
It was my first ever trip to Memphis, primarily for business but with a little time to squeeze in some sights as well.
Arriving at the Peabody you are greeted by a huge beautiful lobby, a staff that is gracious, inviting and helpful and of course the famous duck fountain. The check in agents were extremely pleasant and accommodating. My room was on the 5th floor and I loved it. Yes, this is an older hotel but that is part of the charm. Being part of the history and all the people that have stayed there before you. I enjoyed the duck theme being carried out into the room with the little duck soaps and the duck pillow case.
The bed was extremely comfortable. I liked that there was an abundance of pillows and the amenities in the bathroom were top notch. While it is true that the bathroom is extremely small I think to base a bad review on that would be nothing but nitpicking. I enjoyed some nice conversations with many of the workers throughout the property and they were all so nice.
The concierge was very helpful in getting me to both the Civil Rights Museum and Sun Studios.
When my stay was up I didn't want to leave. It's also nice that you can walk the two blocks to Beale Street. Can't wait to go back to the Peabody.
