Peabody Hotel Group

The Group: Home of the world famous 'Peabody Ducks', the original Peabody hotel was developed in Memphis in 1865 by Robert Brinkley. The hotel was named just before the official opening in 1869 after Brinkley's best friend, philanthropist George Peabody who had died suddenly.

When the hotel was build over 140 years ago no expense was spared; top quality materials were used and skilled craftsmen employed. The hotel was deemed to be one of the most stylish in the South at the time. Today, Peabody Hotels' blend of luxurious décor, top level service, gourmet cuisine, revitalizing spas and a commitment to updating and renovating with state-of-the-art equipment make Peabody Hotels one of the most deluxe chains in North America.

Apart from this luxury it is the 'Peabody Duck March' that has become a tradition and made the hotel chain famous. It started in The Peabody Memphis where every day at 11am five Mallard ducks are led by their 'Duck Master' from their $100,000 penthouse Royal Duck Palace by the elevator to the lobby fountain where they remain throughout the day until 5pm when they return up to their suite for dinner and rest.
