With construction of The Guest House at Graceland in full swing along Elvis Presley Blvd, it’s been announced that the official opening for the new 450-room, full-service resort hotel will take place October 27-30, 2016, with a four-day, star-studded Grand Opening Celebration.

Opening activities will be highlighted by a Guest House ribbon-cutting ceremony, exclusive live concerts, celebrity appearances and red carpet VIP events throughout the weekend to celebrate Elvis Presley and his legacy, and mark the opening of 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.

Members of the Presley family will join a roster of Elvis’ friends, music artists and celebrities during the grand celebration weekend to open this world-class hotel located just steps away from the landmark mansion, recently named the Best Music Attraction worldwide by USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice awards. Inspired by Elvis’ iconic home, every aspect of The Guest House at Graceland will reflect Elvis’ personal style and the unique character of Graceland, from the southern colonial exterior to themed specialty suites, many with designs supervised by Priscilla Presley. The Guest House at Graceland will feature spacious rooms and a range of elegant and contemporary facilities, including two full-service restaurants, a large outdoor pool and a 464-seat theatre for live performances and movies.

“The Guest House at Graceland will be like no other hotel in the world – designed as if Elvis built an extension to his own home,” said Joel Weinshanker, Managing Partner of Graceland LLC. “Our guests will feel like they are staying in an actual guest room at the mansion, and they’ll experience the same warmth and southern hospitality that Elvis always showed his guests.” “Lisa and I, and our entire family, are excited to see The Guest House at Graceland take shape,” stated Priscilla Presley. “The Guest House will be the perfect place to stay while visiting Graceland and experiencing everything that Memphis has to offer. We can’t wait for this unique hotel to open in October 2016.”

As part of the Guest House opening weekend celebration, Elvis fans will gather to mark the closing of Graceland’s first hotel, Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel, with a ceremony to be held on October 26, 2016 to mark its final day of operations. The Heartbreak Hotel will be celebrated throughout its final year (October 2015 - October 2016) with exclusive Heartbreak Hotel mementos given to hotel guests and a select number of its most loyal guests being given the opportunity to take a piece of the Heartbreak Hotel home with them after the hotel closes.
