The resort-style Guest House is a $70 million project whose plans include not only a restaurant and sports lounge with the 450 rooms, but also a performance center. The plan is to start with a ceremonial groundbreaking during Elvis Week and a 12-month construction period. It would be the third-largest hotel in the city, and Soden said it has been on Graceland’s list since the mansion opened for tours in the early 1980s and he became CEO. The new hotel eventually will replace the Heartbreak Hotel on the west side of Elvis Presley Boulevard. The plaza directly across the boulevard from the mansion will also probably see some changes.
