GUEST HOUSE AT GRACELAND - Situated only steps away from Elvis Presley's Graceland® mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, The Guest House welcomes travelers, music fans and groups ready to take care of business — with Southern hospitality, star style and luxurious amenities that would make the King proud. The Guest House is located approximately 10 minutes from Memphis International Airport.  The luxury resort hotel is the most significant enhancement to Graceland since it opened to the public in 1982 and the largest hotel project in Memphis in over 90 years. It opens for business this fall - on October 27 – and is taking reservations now! From the southern colonial exterior to its one-of-a-kind specialty suites with designs supervised by Priscilla Presley, the design and décor at The Guest House at Graceland® are a celebration of Elvis' personal style and his iconic Memphis mansion. The 450-room, full-service, world-class resort offers luxury accommodations and amenities with truly southern hospitality and service. Unique to The Guest House is the exclusive top floor of the resort, known as "The Upstairs," which is reminiscent of the upstairs at the Graceland mansion -- the private living quarters for Elvis and his family that is not part of the mansion tour.  There are 20 themed suites featuring design and décor supervised by Priscilla Presley. There are 430 spacious guest rooms with king and double-queen size platform beds. For more information, call 800-238-2000  or visit
