Food & Wine: Attention Elvis Fans: The Guest House at Graceland Is Taking Reservations

To Priscilla Presley, the Guest House at Graceland, which opened for business last weekend in Memphis just a few steps down the road from Graceland proper, is more than just a new hotel—it's the culmination of a decades-long dream and a tribute to Elvis's spirit and legacy. "I think that one of the biggest challenges was to create a design that really complemented Graceland," Presley says. "This would be a dream hotel for him. If he were here, if this hotel were here when he was alive, he'd probably spend most of his time over here. A built-in theater—that's the place he would go.

The letters TCB with lightning bolts (Taking Care of Business - In a flash) comprise Elvis' motto. The $92 million hotel marks its "soft opening" in private events Thursday before hosting a full house of VIPs this weekend. The hotel, lobby and restaurants will open to the public on Sunday afternoon. There was a whirlwind of activity Wednesday at 3600 Elvis Presley Boulevard as workers put finishing touches on the building and grounds and members of an exclusive fan club checked in.
