The Guesthouse at Graceland; New 450-Room Hotel in Whitehaven

I posted this at SkyscraperPage, and thought I would share it here as well.

 

Elvis Presley Enterprises is building a new 450-room hotel right next to the Graceland mansion, which is tentatively being called The Guesthouse at Graceland. New details about the project were released tonight, including the following:

- The total cost of the project is estimated to be around $70 million (all privately funded with no public money)
- The hotel will be 6 stories tall, with all 450 rooms spread across three wings
- The design is similar to the mansion itself with gabled roofs, brickwork, and fencing
- Plans include a restaurant, sports lounge, meeting space, and a performance theater
- Elvis-themed suites will occupy the top floor of each wing
- The new hotel will replace the Heartbreak Hotel, which will close and be demolished upon completion

Site work is expected to start in June with an official groundbreaking slated for this coming August during Elvis Week. The developers hope to have the new hotel open by August of next year if everything goes as planned.

Ground was broken for the new hotel today; however, the grand opening has been pushed back until Fall of next year.

There is even a page up on the Graceland website now with details on The Guest House at Graceland, including a video of what the rooms will look like once finished.
