Beds were comfy, staff was friendly and helpful, Ducks are SO CUTE.
Hotel restaurant was extremely disappointing for the price.
Lovely historic hotel in an ideal location. Walking distance to the Mississippi River, to Bealle Street and many good restaurants.
It would have been nice to have a list of activities in the hotel when we checked in. We found out too late that there is a happy hour on the roof during sunset... and the roof has a beautiful view.
The bed was comfortable and clean. Bathroom was clean.
The shower head didn’t have a good setting for the showers I like to take.
kayak charging a $77 booking fee.
From the second you arrive...
Every single staff member was informed, diligent, kind and respectful. They all went out of their way to make out stay amazing!
Always love the service and romantic atmosphere with piano playing in the lobby.
The staff at check in were wonderful.
I was told during check in that breakfast was included in the rate and when I checked out I was charged. When questioning the charge the young lad behind the counter started arguing with me and blaming the charge on using a third party and was condescending.
We booked our stay 8 months ago when we arrived at 11 pm we called to tell them we would be late we even payed a Peabody hotel town car to pick us up at a train we were told they did not have our room we had all are needed info from our booking 3 people checked in beside us while we waited 20 minutes to talk to manager we were called to back room and treated like we did something wrong one person in lobby even said wonder what they did manager was rude and over bearing tried to tell us we were rude because we did not want to go to another hotel but we had to it was 11 pm we found out from desk clerk at this hotel that the Peabody has a common habit of over booking and sending us away with 8 month ahead booking the people who got rooms at same time we checked in were part of a group shame on you Peabody for your treatment of guest! What makes it worse is you do it all the time
Bad Service, Good Location
Very central and convenient location - many historical sites, restaurants and bars walkable from the hotel
Awful service all around - room service, cleaning staff, lobby bar, etc. All provided VERY slow service (i.e., did not turn over our room until almost 8pm at night, never provided clean towels despite calling twice, room service took almost 2 hours despite being told it would be less than an hour). Repeatedly told incorrect or wrong information (i.e., asked about where to buy a tshirt that we saw in a case in the lobby and was told the store doesn't exist, even though it's around the corner from the hotel, was told check out was 11am but it's 12pm)
Sunset on the Mississippi River
Our room was on the 10th floor, on the Mississippi River side of the hotel, so we have an absolutely FABULOUS view of the sunset on the river. It was phenomenal. We were celebrating my mother's 80th birthday. Everything at the hotel and all the employees with whom we came in contact at the hotel were wonderful. It was a perfect weekend.
Long Wait but a Great Classic
Great location. I remember going to the Peabody with my grandparents when I was a child and it's a classic. Loved motion sensor lights below the bedside tables to help direct me at night. Nice room, in general.
I attempted to check in at 3:15. First, there was no record of my stay for that night . . . they had me booked for Sunday instead of Saturday. This may not be the hotel's fault. The staff was nice and they fixed it, but then I had to wait THREE hours to get in my room. I had somewhere to be, so this involved leaving my luggage on a cart in the hotel and hoping for the best. I was pretty miffed. I complained when I was in the lobby bar getting a drink, though, and the nice server (manager?) took care of my bar tab, so that was nice. Apparently it was an overbooked weekend. It was definitely chaotic.
A beautif, centrally located hotel
We were there during the holiday season & the lobby was so beautifully decorated with a huge Christmas tree, gingerbread village, & holiday singers. The room was very quiet, clean, comfortable. The bathroom however is TINY. You literally have to straddle the toilet to use the makeup mirror. The staff was super friendly. The sit down restaurant off the lobby was absolutely delicious & very reasonably priced. My only disappointment was that I had made my reservations months ago & others in our party who had made reservations directly with the hotel last minute, got a holiday deal which was much cheaper & included breakfast.
