Peabody Hotel Group: the Peabody flag flies high.

More than 70 years ago, The Peabody Memphis, "the South's grand hotel," gave the world a unique, living symbol--the Peabody Ducks--and marched into the hearts and minds of meeting planners and their clients, who recognize the sign of the duck as the symbol of meeting and convention hotel quality. Peabody Service Excellence, Peabody Hotel Group's patented, award-winning service delivery culture, ensures guests' needs are anticipated and filled. All three Peabody hotels--in Memphis; Orlando, Florida; and Little Rock, Arkansas--feature the Capriccio Grill Italian Steakhouse in addition to other restaurants, cocktail bars, and informal cafes serving gourmet coffees and lighter fare.

The Peabody Memphis

This historic 468-room hotel, with 80,000 square feet of meeting and exposition space, is located in the heart of revitalized downtown Memphis. Association meeting planners revel in the choice of space at this property: The Peabody Grand Ballroom (16,264 square feet), the Tennessee Exhibit Hall, (11,100 square feet), the Peabody Executive Conference Center (11,000 square feet), and the Sky Room (7,500 square feet). The hotel's catering and banquet services and award-winning restaurant Chez Philippe continue to wow meeting delegates and food critics.

What's new?

Opened in early 2004, Capriccio Grill Italian Steakhouse serves prime steaks, ocean-fresh seafood, and pastas cooked to al dente perfection. The hotel's magnificent Grand Lobby has been redecorated and glows in its new lighter look. The hotel continues its extensive redecoration and refurbishment of guest rooms and corridors.
