Elvis Presley used to dream about building a guest house at his Graceland property for friends who would visit the rock ‘n’ roll icon in Memphis. Presley didn’t get to see his dream come true, but his fans will. The Guest House at Graceland is now taking room reservations. The official opening for the new 450-room, full-service resort hotel will take place October 27-30, 2016, with a four-day, star-studded Grand Opening Celebration.
Opening activities will be highlighted by a Guest House ribbon-cutting ceremony, exclusive live concerts, celebrity appearances and red carpet VIP events throughout the weekend to celebrate Elvis Presley and his legacy, and mark the opening of the most significant enhancement to Graceland since it opened to the public in 1982, and the largest hotel project in Memphis in over 90 years.
Inspired by Elvis’ iconic home, every aspect of The Guest House at Graceland will reflect Elvis’ personal style and the unique character of Graceland, from the southern colonial exterior to themed specialty suites, many with designs supervised by Priscilla Presley.
The Guest House at Graceland will feature spacious rooms and a range of elegant and contemporary facilities, including two full-service restaurants, expansive meeting and special events space, a large outdoor pool and a 464-seat theater for live performances and movies.
When the hotel opens, room prices will range from $149 for basic rooms to $1,300 for the highest-priced suite.
