Must do

Of course you have to see the ducks. Arrive early, get a drink at the bar and listen to the history and the 3min duck walk.

Went there at 5 PM to see the ducks. There were so many people and so little space you couldn't see a thing. If I was going to do this I would arrive a lot earlier to get a spot in front. But if you're from a place that has a lot of ducks e.g. Northern MI, this is no... More

Something different and funny at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. At 11 and at 5 they have a ceremony of marching the ducks! It's a real spectacle with a red carpet rolled out from the fountain in the center of the hotel to the elevator. A John Phillips Souza March begins to plat and the Duck Master directs the ducks...

We got there 30 mins before& waited on the mezzanine with a drink. The duck walk takes just a few minutes but it very cute. The hotel is beautiful with tonnes of history. We stayed & had a drink in the corner bar ( happy hour had $3 drinks). Worth seeing. Kids would love and they can sit down along... More

We loved our visit to the Peabody! The staff is very nice and helpful. The room and bathroom were a little smaller than I had expected, but I would gladly stay here again. Be sure to watch the duck march during your stay!

The ducks walk the red carpet everyday at 11am arrival and 5pm departure to the elevator. It gets full early, recommend getting there 1/2 hour early

A lovely posh hotel, we only went there at 11am for the Duckwalk which was slightly dissappointing as we waited 20 mins for four ducks to walk out the elevator to the indoor water fountain. The deco of the hotel was very impressive.

Arrived early for a bit of a birthday happy hour, think about 3.30pm. And had a front row seat to the duck walk. If you do not have a seat you are asked to move upstairs to the balcony. Something different and its a beautiful lobby bar

I have stayed at the Peabody in the past many times and I've always enjoyed the ambiance of this hotel. This stay was different because I was there with my 10 year old daughter. She loved everything about it. And I enjoyed watching her take it all in. She is still talking about the Peabody Duck's ritual walk.
