If you’re visiting Elvis’s Graceland Manson and would love to immerse into the King’s world, you’ll be wowed at the Guest House at Graceland. This luxury resort is themed in a rock-and-roll, Elvis-vibe, yet drenched in opulence. Pricilla Presley actually supervised the decorative design on the interior of the hotel. (And a few lucky guests have seen Pricilla in the lobby.)
The resort opened in late 2016 and is a 10-minute walk to the Graceland Mansion. The 450-room resort offers gorgeous guestrooms and boasts 20 themed suites sprawling on the top floor. The themed rooms are nods to Elvis, his parents, his beloved TV room and so forth. But don’t expect a kitschy experience. This resort has been awarded a AAA Four Diamond Hotel rating. All guestrooms and suites include free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, a 55-inch flat-screen TV, a Keurig coffee system, and beautiful bathrooms with granite counters and fully-glassed walk-in showers.
Two full-service restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating are on-hand along with a causal spot for baked goods, sandwiches and salads. A large outdoor pool and fitness room are both available. Complimentary shuttle takes guests to Downton Memphis and the airport.
The Guest House at Graceland is ten-minute walk to the Graceland Mansion, 7.8-miles to visit the famous Peabody Hotel ducks, 8.0-miles to Downtown Memphis, 9.8-miles to the Memphis zoo, 9.7-miles to the Orpheum Theater Memphis (free summer movies), the 9.9-miles to the Pink Palace and Planetarium, 10.4-miles to the Big Back Yard, 8.7-miles to the Children’s Museum of Memphis, 10-miles to Mud Island River Park and 8.1-miles to Huey’s Downtown (kid-restaurant).

The room was beautiful and comfortable. The staff in tune with the guest's need. Just an overall great experience. The restaurants' staff were superb and the food tasty and exciting. I've always wanted to come to Graceland and The Guest House at Graceland made that dream worthwhile and exciting.
My husband and I just came back from our first trip to Memphis. My husband being Elvis biggest fan couldn't believe how beautiful the hotel was. How they honoured Elvis in every detail. From start to finish the Staff cannot have served you better. Picked up with the shuttle to the hotel, the staff are exceptional Sheila, who is the sweetest darling, hosting you into the restaurants where the food was unbelievable. In the am the best omelete ever The room was cozy, clean and a great view of the courtyard.Not enough towels, or toiletries, but I brought my own. The hotel is so beautiful and the staff the best, to complain about silly things..Great pool in the back, love the replica of the staircase in Graceland. The king suite I would highly recommend. It is awesome!! In the evening always great entertainment. But Rob Haynes stole the show. He would play in the lounge in the evening. My husband is hard to please and he love him. He would make Elvis proud. My koodos to the hotel for promoting such wonderful talent as he.The shuttle service to and from Graceland is the best. I cannot say enough about this beautiful hotel or staff, but to say," Everyone go" You will not be sorry..
