It seems that Elvis is just about everywhere these days.
Lining the elevator banks and bus stops around New York City, movie posters for Baz Luhrmann’s eponymous biopic out in theaters June 24, has been drumming up quite a bit of buzz these days.
The film, which also happens to coincide with the 40th anniversary since Graceland—the former home of the rock n’roll’s legend in Memphis, Tennessee first opened to the public on June 7, 1982 — has served as a pilgrimage for Elvis Presley fans from around the world ever since. Elvis’ former home is so popular in fact, that Graceland receives over 500,000 travelers every year, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions and home tours in America, second only to the White House.
It’s fitting the, that in honor of the new flick Booking.com recently announced the ‘Ultimate Elvis Experience’ that includes a discounted stay for two lucky guests at The Guest House at Graceland, as well as a private tour of Graceland Mansion, a welcome dinner at Presley Motors Automobile Museum, and a sneak-peek screening of Elvis on the property.
Meals at some of the rock and roll legend’s favorite spots like Arcade Restaurant which is said to be the home of Elvis’s favorite banana and peanut butter sandwich is also included, as are private chauffeur rides to and from the airport in a vintage car and a free acoustic guitar from Gibson that’s been embellished with custom artwork from the film to commemorate this iconic stay.
The ultimate two-night experience, which can only be reserved through Booking.com, will be available to book on June 9, 2022 at 12 p.m. ET on a first come, first served basis.
The stay must take place on Saturday, June 11, 2022 to Monday, June 13, 2022 and the total cost to book is $19.57 in honor of the year Elvis hit #1 on the Billboard country charts for his banger “Jailhouse Rock.”
Located on Elvis Presley Boulevard, The Guest House at Graceland is set just across the street from Graceland Mansion, about a fifteen minute drive from the nightlight on Beale Street and downtown Memphis.
You can find more information about this once in a lifetime stay here and as Elvis would famously say, thank you, thank you very much.
