WHITEHAVEN, Tenn. (FOX13) - A public meeting will be held May 15 concerning a proposed hotel moving in right next door to Graceland. The proposal is from Elvis Presley Enterprises.

If approved, the "Guesthouse at Graceland" would have 450 rooms, a restaurant and a sports lounge.

Kevin Kern of EPE and Memphis City Councilman Harold Collins said the new hotel would help the Bluff City not only economically, but environmentally as well.

"We believe this particular investment is a game-changer for our community, not to mention that investment but also the $43 million the road project that will be going on at the same time," Councilman Collins said. "We are very excited about what the future holds for the Whitehaven community."

"You can reduce the carbon footprint by bringing things on the same side as the mansion as well, so there are lots of benefits and we're excited about the future," Kern added.

Private money would be used to build the "Guesthouse at Graceland."

The public meeting takes place at 7 p.m. at the Graceland car museum.

FOX13 News reporter Lynnanne Nguyen will have a report on the meeting on FOX13 News at 9.
