The Peabody | Memphis

The Peabody is the classic hotel of Memphis. It has been the place to stay since 1869. Today it faultlessly combines old fashioned luxury, southern hospitality and modern amenities. It is noted for, amongst other things, the extraordinary water fountain where duck swim in the enormous lobby.

In London, 11 o’clock marks the Changing of the Guard, in Memphis, it is the March of the Peabody Ducks. The Lobby Bar is sometimes called “the living room of Memphis” and certainly serves a good range of Jack Daniels and some interesting cocktails.


The 464 rooms and suites vary in size from the Traditional Queen room with just one queen sized bed up to vast suites, some with a pretty loft bedroom. All have luxury Egyptian cotton sheets, flat screen televisions and all other accessories that you expect from a first class hotel.

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
