MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - “USA Today” has named Memphis’ Peabody Hotel the top historic hotel in the country.

The iconic hotel opened in 1869 and is best known for the ducks that waddle through the lobby each day, not to mention the hotel’s ornate decor.

Back in March, “Southern Living Magazine” also named the Peabody the No. 1 historic hotel in the South.
