The Peabody Hotel is a brand name that has always meant luxury to its guests, and now three of the chain’s properties have the affiliation to prove it.
The Peabody Memphis, Peabody Orlando and Peabody Little Rock have joined Associated Luxury Hotels International, a national sales service for high-end hotels. Associated Luxury Hotels represents more than 125 Four- and Five-Diamond hotels.
The Peabody Memphis
The iconic Peabody Memphis, which first opened 140 years ago, is currently constructing The Peabody Suites in the Peabody Place retail center. There will be 160 suites at the project, which should be complete by January 2011. The Peabody Orlando, a 891-room hotel adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center on International Drive, is also undergoing a 750-room expansion. The Peabody Little Rock features 418 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, including 22 suites.
Notable about the Peabody Memphis and its sister hotels are the world-famous Peabody Ducks, who march down the red carpet to the Lobby Fountain every day at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Associated Luxury Hotels has 17 sales offices nationwide and markets member hotels to corporations, meeting planners, associations and incentive and product-launch specialists.
