Dallas News – New Guest House At Graceland Resort Salutes Elvis Presley With Elegance

By | 2017-04-18T20:40:33+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Hotel|

Irregularly shaped wing chairs mimic his upturned collar. The lobby ceiling reflects the design on his cape. Hall light sconces feature the initials EP. And beside the pool, a heart shape blazes in the hunka hunka burnin' fire pit. The new Guest House at Graceland salutes Elvis Presley at every turn, yet it does so with high-end elegance and muted bling. The walls sparkle, but quietly, not blindingly. This is the new, 450-room resort and conference center that replaces the old Heartbreak Hotel across the street. Carrying a sort of '70s Vegas vibe, it's designed to evoke Elvis Presley, but in a way that's not kitschy. Well, it might be just a tad kitschy that there's a flat-screen TV embedded in the ceiling of each of the two King Suite bedrooms over a bed swathed in red velvet. But it's also awesome, inspired by Elvis' own bedroom at Graceland (except his TV wasn't a flat screen). Read the Full Dallas News Article Feature >

StyleBlueprint – The Guest House at Graceland: A Rockin’ Haven Fit for a King

By | 2017-06-29T01:14:14+00:00 March 30th, 2017|Hotel|

Elvis Presley fans might be the best ever. They’re down-to-earth, friendly, loyal and just the right kind of interesting. On top of that, they come from nearly every continent and age group. At The Guest House at Graceland, though, fandom isn’t required. In fact, the Memphis resort hotel, which opened in October 2016, was designed for the Elvis impersonator and the suspicious-minded visitor alike. Of course, there are subtle nods to the King, but they have been executed with tasteful nuance. No gaudy jumpsuits to be found — unless you count the pointed backs of the lobby chairs. According to Mike Pramshafer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at The Guest House, the chairs were designed to mimic the shape of Elvis’ upturned collar. Another fun fact: The lobby ceiling replicates the carpet pattern below, and both are inspired by designs on the backs of EP’s jumpsuits. As guests approach the large white columns and pull into the porte-cochere, they’re sure to encounter Southern hospitality. With or without luggage, whether self-parking or valeting, visitors are treated as invited guests. Mike said that before Elvis died, he had plans for a guest house — albeit much smaller than a 450-room Guest [...]

Forbes – How To Spend Two Perfect Days In Memphis

Because of a fellow named Elvis Aaron Presley, Memphis’ place in musical lore is secure. Dig a little deeper than Graceland in the liner notes, though, and you’ll uncover a list with so many other monumental names (Aretha Franklin, W.C. Handy, Al Green) that you start to get all shook up by the city’s true historical significance. Blues City celebrates its place in the sonic sphere every year with the month-long Memphis in May extravaganza, with the Beale Street Music Festival being the headlining event. This year’s showing on May 5 to 7 will feature behemoths in rock (Kings of Leon) and soul (Jill Scott), but it’ll demonstrate its diversity with hip-hop (Wiz Khalifa), reggae (Ziggy Marley) and country (Sturgill Simpson) as well. But tunes aren’t the only place where Memphis is mixing it up. Of late, the city has also shown that it can jazz things up in the kitchen and make some noise in the hotel world. With our Forbes Travel Guide editors’ 48-hour itinerary, you’ll be able to sample some of the new with a bit of the old, and put it all together in one sweet-sounding getaway.

Planning Your Visit To Graceland In Memphis, TN

By | 2017-06-29T01:14:14+00:00 March 16th, 2017|Hotel|

These days, Graceland is pretty much a household name. Back when Elvis purchased it in 1957, little did he know it would become one of the most famous, most visited homes across the country. In this article we’ll be discussing some of the history of Graceland, the changes that have been occurring, and what you can expect when planning a visit. We’ll throw in some tips on “must-sees” while here, too. Due to The King’s growing popularity and stardom back in the late 1950s, he needed a place to stay with plenty of privacy. He bought the Graceland Mansion that was on just shy of 14 acres. Even though he traveled a lot, and had other homes across America, Graceland was always home base for Elvis, his family, and his guests. Nowadays, Graceland has become a major tourist attraction, with many fun, interactive experiences. Within the last couple of years, the whole area has been dramatically revitalized, with new projects being planned, developed, and opened. One of the biggest was the opening of our hotel, The Guest House at Graceland. It was the largest hotel project in Memphis in over 90 years. Our luxury resort welcomes guests from all across [...]
