Dave Robinson thinks his job is just ducky, in fact, he claims it's, "the best one at the hotel." No, he doesn't play Donald at Disney World. Duck Master Dave leads a parade of mallards through the lobby of The Orlando Peabody Hotel. His duties include feeding and caring for these mascots: five mallards (1 drake and 4 females).

... day so we got some butterbeer and pumpkin juice to quench our thirst. Butterbeer is soooooo good! I must learn how to make them at home one day.
Next up was the dueling dragons. Again,we got lucky and managed to sit on the second row on the blue dragon. It was a lot of fun. Too bad the red dragon wasn't running the same time as the blue one. It would have been fun. We did not wait in line again for the red dragon since we didn't see a point. Plus ...

The lovely Hawkesfords came and picked us up, even with 2 missing bags we needed 2 cars. Then that was it, all over except for the unpacking and the washing. A whole suitcase full of memories that we will take with us through life until dementia comes along, then I can reread this every day and it will be a whole new ...

Our car was booked through Alamo and as I'd done on line check in it was straight to the garage and pick up whichever car we fancied, although I fancied the Mustang Convertible,as it only seats four I had to settle for a Chrysler Town and Country with leather seats, self opening doors and ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Peabody Orlando
This amazing hotel is located in the convention center district in downtown Orlando. If you are looking for luxury during your stay in Orlando, look no further. Simply put, this hotel had televisions in the mirrors in the bathrooms. Enough said!

Historical Traveler Reviews The Peabody Orlando
Stayed at the Peabody for two days in February. It is a fabulous hotel.
Our room was perfect in every way. The service was first class, as was the food in their restaurants. Go to the old fashioned diner for a regular meal or their wonderful desserts. You will love it.
Loved the Peabody!
Fantastic hotel in superb location. I had read all the reviews prior to staying at the Peabody, and was absolutely thrilled to find it was worthy of a 5-star rating. Very friendly staff from the moment we arrived (with 2 small children in tow), gorgeous facilities, and very efficient service where you really felt that your every need was being catered to. Very nice choice of restaurants in the hotel, with the Diner being a great place to have a relaxing bite to eat with the kids.
Nice location, with a pleasant 5 minute walk from the hotel to Pointe Orlando for more shops and restaurants. All in all, a great stay, highly recommended.
Directly across the street from the Convention Center - you could get by without a car. Hotel very lovely but very pricey. Room felt very cozy with comfortable furniture that also allowed for working comfortably. Would like to see them offer an all inclusive price instead of paying for each phone call.
Not for a family vacation
I thought it was overrated. I went on a Disney trip and felt uncomfortable with what looked like a get down to corporate biz type place. I had no desire to overlook the conventions center-again I wanted to get away from business! I don't know why this is a 5 star hotel. The staff was no more friendly than anywhere else but maybe more jumpy--if you like fawning this is the place. The room was adequate.
The pool was big but nothing special. It had none of the magic of the Disney resorts. I just don't get it.
We were there w/ my husband who was on business. The lobby was filled w/ overly made up ladies w/ big hair and cigarettes. They reeked of smoke and perfume. They practally knocked over my children to see the ducks. The ducks were really stupid, forced to stay in a little fountain all day. No free coffee. We did get a free duck-shaped soap in our room. Whopee! They need to have a smoke free lobby. My kids and husband all hated it! We use it as a threat to make our kids behave. "Clean your room or we will go back to the Peabody"
Stay here for 10 nights over christmas this year and what a disapointment. The reception staff where disintrested and unhelpful. We had 2 deluxe rooms on the 22 floor and I have stayed in better maintained Holiday Inns. the bathroom mirrors where cracked and paint covered. The shower would not tirn off properly and dripped which was never fixed despite reporting it for 3 consective nights. The towels and bath robes where removed every day and frequently not replaced. The Elecronic locks on our doors never worked and we had to get new keys issued every night this process was made to feel like a police interigation by the front desk staff who tried to make us feel we where in the wrong and where trying to illegally acess their hotel. On Check out the final bill was total incorrect they had not charged us for valet parking for 1/2 the nights but had charged for roll a way instead which was $5 more per night. We had been doublwe charged a credit from the gift shop. All in all having stayed at the Hyatt Grand Cypress and Anmail kingdom lodge. I will nnot stay here again. This is surely an example of a hotel living on reputation and expense accounts not on the service it is currently offering
The Peabody was wonderful! It was definately the greatest hotel I have ever stayed at. The Disney hotels don't even come close to the Peabody.
I love the televisions in the bathroom and the duck walk at 9:00 in the morning. I would definately go back because the rates were great.
I just got back from a week in Orlando, FL (July 3rd - July 10th) where I stayed at The Peabody Hotel. This hotel is one of the best hotels that I have had the opportunity to stay at while in Florida. It's a well-maintained hotel with very nice rooms. I had a deluxe room with a king bed and it was very comfortable (a necessity when walking around the parks all day!). They have the parade of ducks in the morning and a night. It's very entertaining to watch. The interior of the hotel is very tastefull and the people are extremely professional. It's not a true vacationers hotel, it appears to cater more to the business people (since it's located near the Convention Center). Overall, we had a wonderful time.
I stayed at the Peabody in June 2003 and had a wonderful time. The room was a standard double and was very clean. The pool was great and also the hot tub. The beds were soft and oh so comforatable! Down bedding and pillows. The little duck soaps were so cute! Great gifts for the grandkids. Mini-bar was out of my price range-- $3.00 for a Rice Krispie Bar! The service in the hotel B-Line Diner was somewhat slow.
Disney's Not the Only Game in Town!!
All the glowing Disney reviews compel me to ask whether folks are too overcome by the Disney mystique to be totally objective. I have stayed in a couple Disney properties and yes, they're clean and convenient and are staffed by well-scrubbed, earnest employees. But none compare to the Peabody, the management of which has a long tradition of service and comfort, which plays out superbly in its Orlando property. The rooms are large and bright, the service professional (and not just so I'll spend more money in a theme park) and the other hotel services top-rate. Give the Peabody a try when you want a genuine five-star hotel experience without the mouse ears.
