The Peabody Memphis Wins Best Historic Hotel In Its 150th Year

September 9, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Cementing itself as an integral part of Memphis, the iconic Peabody Hotel this year celebrates its 150th anniversary, and has aptly been named as the USA’s ‘Best Historic Hotel’ in USA TODAY’s 10 Best Readers Choice Awards 2019 for the second consecutive year.

Still considered one of the most grand and legendary hotels a century and a half on, The Peabody is best known for its charm, elegance, gracious Southern hospitality, and the famous mallard ducks that occupy the hotel lobby fountain. The prominent group of mallard ducks have continued an 85-year-old tradition that is the March of the Peabody Ducks, and are to this day a living symbol of the Peabody brand as well as a reason for visitors and tourists to flock to the hotel on a daily basis.

Since its inception in 1869, The Peabody has been a symbol of Memphis’ rich history and cultural roots.. Situated in the heart of downtown Memphis, the hotel is just blocks away from the famous Beale Street, Memphis Rock n’ Soul Museum, Fed Ex Forum, Sun Studio, and the Orpheum Theatre.

Memphis continues to reinvent itself during its bicentenary year, with the city best known for its music legacy and rich culinary scene bursting with new life and gaining the attention of new travellers from across the globe.
