Top 5 Things to Do at the Peabody Memphis Hotel featured by top Memphis blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels.

SHOP OUR PEABODY MEMPHIS HOTEL LOOKS:

A couple weekends ago, Matt and I finally stayed at the Peabody for the first time together, and we LOVED it! I hadn’t been since they had updated the rooms, and I have to say I love how they look! They were updated in a turquoise and gray color palette, and look much more modern and relaxing with all their original charm still. We only had one night there, so we squeezed in just as much as we could before the holiday craziness was upon us!

The Peabody has been around for 150 years, and is one of my favorite hotels in the Midsouth! If you’re planning a trip to Memphis, you just have to add Peabody to your list of things to do and places to visit. If there’s one hotel that is known in Memphis, this is it and they are a Memphis tradition!

If you’re wondering the best time to visit the Peabody, I think it is definitely December. The lobby is all decorated for Christmas, and you can just feel the holiday spirit all throughout the hotel! People come from all over to take pictures in front of the trees in the lobby, watch the ducks march or grab a drink in the lobby. I’m sharing my top 5 list of things you have to do when you visit the Peabody Memphis. And keep reading because I’m giving away a 1 night hotel stay and a 60 minute massage at Feathers Spa to one lucky reader!

Top 5 Things to Do at the Peabody Memphis Hotel:

1.) The Duck March

Famous since the first duck march at the Peabody Hotel, ducks have been trained and marching through the lobby for 90 years now. They even have a Royal Duck Palace up on the roof you can visit. It’s such a fun tradition to watch for families kids and even couples.

2.) High Tea and Dinner at Chez Philippe

Come have traditional English tea at the only place in town that serves it – Peabody Memphis. Enjoy a three-course menu of savory tea sandwiches, assorted sweets and warm scones from the Peabody Pastry Shop in addition to a selection of teas and caffeine-free children’s teas. This has been on my list for years, and you have to add it to yours too! Chez Philippe serves classic French cuisine and is the only Forbes Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond rated restaurant in the Mid-South. I’ve had dinner their twice, and it was quite the experience for me and Matt!

3.) Dessert at the Bakery

Oh my goodness, what isn’t to love in their bakery?! You just have to take a look at the sweet treats. And then once you look, you will probably just have to buy something lol! My favorite is the chocolate covered strawberries, and Matt’s favorites are the pecan pie and red velvet cupcakes.

4.). The Lobby Bar

You just have to grab a drink in the lobby bar, check out the ducks swimming in the fountain and do a little people watching in this gorgeous lobby. And during November, December and January, you can find it decorated for Christmas with gorgeous Christmas trees that fill the lobby as tall as they are! You will even be serenaded with a pianist.

5.) A Couples Ashiatsu Massage at Feathers Spa

Wow is the first word that comes to mind. I had been wanting to try an ashi for a while, and it was even better than I could have imagined! I told them that I like light to medium pressure, and they perfectly did just that. They applied just the right amount of pressure, and it was such a great experience. And honestly I left feeling better than I have after almost any other massage! Matt said it was one of his favorites too!

  1. Amazing! I remember my parents taking us to Memphis when we were young and letting us walk into the Peabody to look at the ducks. Would be thrilled to relive that.

  2. I would love to revive old memories at The Peabody. I use to visit there with my children for many years. Beauty everywhere plus a bonus massage!! YES please!!

  3. I have lived in Memphis for over 40 years, but have never stayed at The Peabody. I would love a massage and a nice, relaxing night with my sweet husband of 38 years.

  4. I’m a memphis local and have yet to stay at the Peabody! I have visited their rooftop – it is amazing. Would love to stay there sometime for a weekend staycation!

  5. The Peabody of Memphis looks like an amazing and elegant place. I would enjoy the dining, service, comfort, shopping and all the many extras. A must when you are in Memphis!

  6. December 30th is my husbands and my 21st wedding anniversary. We never do anything and we always have wanted to stay just once at the Peabody. I would look forward the most getting away alone locally in one of the countries finest hotels. Getting a spa treatment would be wonderful too! Thanks for the chance!

  7. Tiffany J Burks-Sanders

    I have lived in Memphis my entire life minus 1year, and have never stayed at the Peabody!!! I would just enjoy the history of the hotel. The spa would be a real bonus!!

  8. We haven’t had the pleasure of staying here but we did stay down the street and came to see the duck march. It was so cute. If I had the pleasure of staying there, I would most look forward to seeing the spa 😉

  9. We love the bakery and hotel. I would surprise my wife with this. We would look forward to staying at the hotel and seeing the Ducks and swimming in the pool.

    1. I would love to win a night since we have family in Memphis and have wanted to stay there. We would be excited about staying there and seeing the Ducks. I would enjoy the massage too

  10. What a beautiful place. I have seen the ducks go to the fountain. As a college student in the 1990″s we use to drive to the Peabody from the MS Delta of Cleveland. I would be so happy to actually get a chance to stay there.

  11. I have always wanted to see the ducks at the Peabody. They had a Peabody in Little Rock for about 10 years but I never made it to see the ducks and now it’s a Marriott. 🙂

  12. A stay at the Peabody is always a treat, and must include drinks and people watching at the lobby bar. And we always stop in Lansky Brothers to shop. Truly the South’s grand hotel!
