THE GUEST HOUSE AT GRACELAND OVERNIGHT RATE $261 (DELUXE ROOM)
Ever wanted to walk a mile in Elvis’s blue suede shoes? What about sleep in his bed? Recently opened, this chic 450-room hotel – with some VIP suites designed by Priscilla Presley – makes it possible for you to sleep like a king in Memphis. Don’t be cruel and skip Elvis Presley’s Memphis – the largest expansion of Graceland since the mansion began offering tours in 1984. This theme park for Elvis fans is opposite the hotel with more gold jumpsuits, awards, classic cars and customised aeroplanes than you can swing a microphone at. You’ll eat like the King at Vernon’s Smokehouse and Gladys’ Diner – yes, peanut butter and banana sandwiches are on the menu. If you believe there is life after Elvis, jump on one of the shuttles to Beale Street to explore all this city has to offer.
