Where to Stay
Known as the “South’s Grand Hotel,” The Peabody was originally built in 1869, and the current structure dates back to 1925. This elegant hotel has been at the center of Memphis’s social and business history for nearly 140 years.
The Peabody owes much of its fame to the fact that five live ducks can be found swimming in the hotel lobby fountain, a tradition that started as a practical joke in 1933 and has since come to be known the world over.
The Guest House at Graceland is adjacent to the famous landmark and is a blend of Southern hospitality and modern style. It’s an ideal location for Elvis fans who want to make the most of their time in the area exploring his legacy.
