Apr 26, 2013

Officials say the Peabody Hotel in downtown Little Rock will switch over to the Marriott brand next week.

Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau CEO Gretchen Hall says the changeover will happen Wednesday.

Hall says the Peabody's signature ducks will take their last march in Little Rock within the next week.

In December, the Advertising and Promotion Commission signed an agreement to lease the Peabody to a Tennessee-based investment company, which settled on the Marriott brand. 

Little Rock owns the land and improvements where the hotel is located, so the city had to sign off on the plan.
