By | May 16th, 2017|Hotel|Comments Off on Enjoying the Heat at the Summer Festival in Memphis, Tennessee

The summer temperature in Memphis can reach a high of 88.7 degrees Fahrenheit. But you shouldn’t let the heat dampen your interest in having a vacation in the birthplace of Elvis Presley, rock ‘n roll, and blues. If you want to bask in the rich culture, music, arts, and food that Memphis has to offer, summer is still the best time for you to experience all of these. Another great reason to visit Memphis in the upcoming season is the Summer Festival. This renowned festival consists of a parade, fireworks show, and 5K Duck Dash. This year’s festival plan also [...]

Parlor of the Palm Springs Suite.JEFFREY JACOBS A new 450-room hotel in Memphis with suites overseen by Priscilla Presley taps the design trend of retro detailing “I took off my shoe and put it on the table. I said, ‘It needs to be that kind of red,’” says Priscilla Presley, describing how she explained to a group of designers the shade to be used in a suite at the Graceland Guest House modelled on Elvis’s bedroom. The 450-room hotel opened in October 2016 as part of a $137-million (U.S.) investment in the Whitehaven area – the biggest hospitality [...]

The Guest House at Graceland: An Elvis tribute that — thank you, very much — isn’t tacky MEMPHIS — Like most Americans of a certain age, I grew up with Elvis Presley. Not the actual man from Tupelo, but the image of him as filtered through my big sisters’ obsession, the endless air play his hits received, and the surreal Las Vegas Elvis whose jumpsuits were as gaudy as the Strip itself. Not to mention the legion of Elvis “tribute” copycats who crooned “Heartbreak Hotel” for anyone willing to listen. Last week on a business trip to Memphis, I met [...]

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

By | April 18th, 2017|Hotel|Comments Off on Dallas News – New Guest House At Graceland Resort Salutes Elvis Presley With Elegance

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 [...]

The Guest House at Graceland is Fido-Friendly

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 [...]
