The Peabody Hotel (Memphis, Tennessee)

imageEach hotel has a story and the older the hotel the longer the story. 

The Story: In 1869 Robert Brinkley decided to build “the finest hotel in the South” and for it to be an oasis of elegance and good taste and name it after the financier and philanthropist George Peabody. 

I have been staying in this four star hotel this week (April 2009) and the hotel lives up to Robert’s dream and the South can be proud of this little gem.  The hotel is located just blocks from Memphis attractions like Beale Street, the Memphis Rock NO Soul Museum, Gibson Guitar Factory, Fedex Forum and Sun Studio. And whilst you are in town don’t forget to make a trip out to Graceland and visit Elvis’s shrine.

imageThe rooms of The Peabody are well kept, the staff are wonderful, the food is exceptional, and the ambiance of the lobby reflects a warm inviting style.

If you are in Memphis drop in to the lobby, pictured to the left and enjoy the peace and style of the South. 

image If you are around at 9am or 5pm enjoy the The Peabody Ducks that march to and from the Grand Lobby twice each day in a time-honored tradition dating back to 1933.  It draws a crowd every day for something that is silly but fun.

So I’d say that this is a great place to stay to enjoy charming Southern hospitality and style.
