Historic Site · Landmark
At The Peabody Ducks, witness one-of-a-kind ceremony in which marching ducks trot down the red carpet and up a small stairway into a marble fountain where they spend the rest of the day playing. You can watch them paddling in the placid waters of the fountain every day from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

  • There is a sign on the door advising the Peabody ducks are only for hotel guests, however no one is checking and obviously others who were not staying at the hotel watching the show as well.  more »
  • Stayed at the Peabody years ago for business, passed through Memphis, my wife had never seen it so we had to go! It's the only place I have seen anything like ducks in the lobby fountain, and then...  more »
  • Magical place. I would say it feels like home but they don't treat me this good there. 😄 from the delicious cuisine to the extravagant rooms and polite staff, you will not make a bad choice staying here. There is a server Billy who was the best one there. They do get busy because they are that good but would strongly recommend.
  • The hotel is gorgeous and I love how they have preserved the historical elements, like the phone booths. The ducks were lovely to see. The hotel room we stayed in was very small and we could hear everything the people in the room next to us said, which was obviously undesirable. We ate at the Peabody restaurant and the food was excellent, but the service was lacking. We only got one refill after sitting there for an hour and a half. Despite those things, I give it four stars for the beauty, history and location. Would love to visit again!
