3 Memphis Getaways: Rock Star, Rustic or Refined – Excerpt As Published On STLToday.com

MEMPHIS, Tenn. • A truly relaxing getaway is one where you can check into a hotel and never get behind the wheel again until it’s time to head home. Visitors to Memphis, just a four-hour drive down Interstate 55, will find two new resort hotels and one established classic that offer plenty to keep guests entertained. And more adventures off-site are just a short walk or Uber ride away. You may never want to leave your room at these hotels, but you really should. One-of-a-kind experiences await. Rock-star luxury: The Guest House at Graceland Think of the Guest House at Graceland as an Elvis Presley-inspired hotel, rather than as an Elvis Presley-themed hotel. You certainly don’t need to be his No. 1 fan to stay here — it’s pretty cool on its own. The Guest House opened in October on property adjacent to the Graceland mansion, where Presley lived from 1957 until his death in 1977. With suites designed by the rock ’n’ roll legend’s former wife, Priscilla Presley, the 450-room resort is excessively stylish. In the glitzy lobby — where we spotted a bouffant and thick sideburns waiting in line at the check-in counter, along with several contenders for [...]

Graceland and Surrounding Attractions Get An Upgrade With New Museum Complex, Hotel – Review As Featured On The Advocate

He’s been gone for almost 40 years. But Elvis never really left the building. Instead, the immediate surroundings of Graceland, the Memphis home he occupied from 1957 until his death there on Aug. 16, 1977, have received a major upgrade, one that Elvis Presley Enterprises — and Elvis’ ever-devout fans — are counting on to keep his legacy rocking for decades to come. As an EPE executive put it, “There’s nobody like Elvis, and there’s only one Graceland in the world.” With 20 million tourists passing through since it was opened to the public in 1982, Graceland is the second most-visited house in America, after only the White House. It hosts commemorations of not just his birthday, but also the day he died, and inspires hundreds of active tribute artists (don’t call them impersonators). But legends fade. And with an aging fan base (just 20 percent of Graceland visitors were born since Elvis died) and annual attendance flat for the last decade (600,000, down 100,000 from the peak 20 years ago), something had to be done. That's why the Guest House at Graceland, a $92 million 450-room Elvis-themed resort-style hotel, opened next door last October. And March brought the debut [...]

Sometimes you need to get away. Far, far away. Other times, a not-so-far-away getaway will do just fine. If you know what I’m talking about and you live in Memphis, let me suggest The Guest House at Graceland. This luxury hotel right next to the Graceland Mansion opened in October of 2016 and I recently had the chance to check it out for a weekend. Settle in and let me take you through my Memphis staycation weekend at The Guest House at Graceland. We arrived at The Guest House at Graceland and our first impression was: wow, this is big. And nice. The luxurious lobby immediately set the tone for a weekend escape from our busy lives. After check-in, we went straight for the lobby bar for cocktails and snacks. (Priorities!) The attention to detail is obvious everywhere in the hotel, from the mirrors and light fixtures to the vintage-style cut crystal glasses for a bourbon-based drink. The lobby bar is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Then we explored the grounds of the hotel. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and a huge pool with a wet deck. Take note, summer visitors and staycation-ers. Next, time for dinner at Delta’s [...]

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 >  

The Guest House at Graceland is Fido-Friendly

By | 2017-09-14T11:54:47+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Hotel|

A tilt of the head, a sidelong glance, a forlorn gaze; if you’re a pet parent, you know the look that signals the moment your furry friend figures out there’s a trip in the works and he is not going along for the ride. In fact, some of our pets have so successfully wrapped us around their paws that we choose to take shorter trips or fewer vacations just to mitigate the impact of that heart-wrenching moment. The American Pet Products Association’s 2017–2018 National Pet Owners Survey says 68 percent of U.S. households (about 84.6 million residences) are home to at least one pet, including 89.7 million dogs. Keep that in mind and consider this: A recent TripAdvisor survey of 1,100 pet-owning travelers revealed 35 percent of those surveyed take shorter vacations and 25 percent take fewer vacations rather than leave their pets behind when they travel. That’s a whole lot of people choosing staycations over vacations. On the other hand, 53 percent of survey respondents bring their pets along when they travel and 52 percent actively seek out pet-friendly lodging — including The Guest House at Graceland. Opened to rave reviews in October 2016, the AAA Four Diamond-rated, 450-room [...]
