On a cold, rainy night in December I checked into The Guest House at Graceland just steps away from Graceland Mansion. Inspired by the same warm Southern hospitality that Elvis Presley always showed his guests, every aspect of this new hotel reflects Elvis’ personal style and the unique character of Graceland Mansion.
From the moment I arrived until I departed the following day, I felt Elvis’ presence at The Guest House at Graceland. I met friends in the lobby where we stood beneath a round, mirrored ceiling based on Elvis’ bejeweled cape. The music of Elvis serenades arriving guests. Each floor at The Guest House at Graceland has photographs of Elvis artifacts outside the elevators with a number to let guests know what floor they are on.
In the guest rooms a 50-inch flat screen television may be tuned to one of multiple Elvis channels. Guests may choose from his music of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s as well as movies and TV specials. You may also watch a guided tour of Graceland or dial in the Graceland cam aimed at the front door of the mansion.
