Elvis Presley made Memphis, Tenn., the epicenter of rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950s. Since then, fans and music lovers have flocked to visit Graceland, his long-time home until his death in 1977. Now, they can also stay just feet away at The Guest House at Graceland, a 450-room resort hotel that provides world-class service.

“When Elvis had friends and family visit Graceland, he would have them stay at a hotel down the street, explained his ex-wife Priscilla Presley. “He would have been thrilled to have had his own guest house where they could stay so close by. “

Enjoy Elvis Presley’s Southern Hospitality

The Guest House at Graceland reflects Presley’s “make-yourself-at-home” approach to his guests. Priscilla Presley supervised the design of its specialty suites. It also has over 17,000 square feet available for events and weddings, a 464-seat theater and two full-service restaurants.

More than a place to stay after exploring Memphis or the Elvis Presley Museum, its mixture of rock ‘n’ roll attitude and smooth sophistication will satisfy all guests, even four-legged ones.

Graceland, which USA Today has recognized as the #1 Best Worldwide Musical Attraction, is in good company with The Guest House at Graceland. Business Insider and Sydney Australia Morning Herald Traveller both called it one of the most important hotel openings of 2016.

Close to the Action

Memphis is, however, more than just Elvis. Attractions near The Guest House at Graceland include Sun Studio and the National Civil Rights Museum. Hotel guests can also buy discounted tickets to the Memphis Zoo and Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Or, listen to music at Jerry Lee Lewis’ Cafe & Honky Tonk or B.B. King’s Blues Club on historic Beale Street.

Visiting Elvis Presley’s Graceland is a must-do if you go to Memphis. But you’ll want to experience everything the city has to offer. And whether it’s shopping at Schwab’s Drug Store or watching ducks cross the Peabody Hotel lobby, The Guest House at Graceland could be a great base for your trip.
