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 [...]

With summertime coming up, many of us tend to start thinking about vacationing, stay-cationing and housing guests. Recently, I toured and stayed the night at one of Memphis’ newest destination points – The Guest House at Graceland. It was magnificent. My family and I had been there before for dinner at Delta’s Kitchen, which I prefer over the more casual fare at EP’s. It’s great for game watching. There are 11 screens! The stay was pleasant and the staff was delightful, especially Ms. Delores at the concierge desk. I was very well taken care of and not because they knew [...]

The 450-room hotel opened in October 2016 as part of a $137-million (U.S.) investment in the Whitehaven area – the biggest hospitality [...]
