The Peabody Hotel is up for national recognition

Local Good News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. ( – USA Today included the Peabody Hotel for voting in its 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards for “Best Historic Hotel.”

The website lists the Peabody for its restaurants, sights and pool area, location in downtown Memphis, and its famed ducks that have been marching through the hotel since 1869.

The hotel’s Duckmaster and Peabody Hotel Historian says that this honor brings attention to what locals often don’t see in their city.

“Memphis is frequently undersold, in my opinion. There’s so much good here, so much that people want to come from all over the world to see that the local people just don’t realize. So, it’s fun to be able to put the spin on it that endears people to the city,” said Duckmaster and Peabody Hotel Historian Doug Weatherford.

USA Today currently has the Peabody ranked 3rd out of 20 historic hotels across the nation.
