Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel

Monday, October 27, 2014

Hey Everybody! I'm passing through Memphis, Tennessee en route back to New Orleans! HaHaHa So I'll be blogging from Memphis a couple of days! Memphis is known for their barbeque, soul music, Beale street, civil rights history and Elvis Presley. Speaking of Elvis, I'm staying at the coolest place! It's called Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel (It's on Lonely St. and it's named after one of Elvis' songs). I picked this particular hotel, because I've always wanted to see Graceland (Elvis' home) in person and this hotel is right across the street from it. This hotel has furry phones, vintage televisions (that play Elvis movies & music 24/7), leopard chairs, a heart-shaped pool and pictures of Elvis everywhere. It's a small, older hotel, but it has so much charm. Plus, everyone is friendly. I swear I'm the youngest person here! HaHaHa They're looking at me, like "what do you know about Elvis?" Really not very much! But I've always wanted to see it in person. I'm such a middle-aged-old soul! Back to the hotel. This is not a 5 or even 4 Star Hotel (It's a 3 Star Hotel). It's very basic, but ALL rooms have free wi-fi, a small refrigerator, ac/heat unit and microwave. They also have free breakfast (muffins, toast, juice, cereals, biscuits, fresh fruit, eggs, grits, sausage, milk, jams, danish, donuts, assortment of fresh fruit). I'm having so much fun! I even brought my heart-themed makeup! LOL It's about 85F here right now! When I left Cincy it was 48F! What a temperature difference! It's so hot, I pulled out my sandals. LOL NO Fall weather here! LOL Here are some pics. Enjoy :)

Hehe those make-up brushes look familiar! :)

I would stay in that hotel just for the furry phone! That's so awesome! :) I used to know a lady who was obsessed with Elvis, I thought of her when I read your post! She's visited Graceland many times, I'm sure she will have stayed at this hotel at some point! :) Sadly we lost touch, or I'd be emailing her your post right now asking her, haha!

Great job with the images is an amazing place for what I see. Elvis is a singer till this day many people miss. I know this hotel will be a place hard to make reservation.

very fun! We go to memphis now and again, but somehow I've never been to the Elvis museums or house. I think I just don't know much about him, but we should still go check it out. Enjoy your stay!

OMG I love it. I'm itching to go to Memphis. Simply itching. We did go to Nashville a year or so ago and it's a pretty awesome city too.

I BTW am SO into the cheesy Elvis stuff. I don't have it in my home or anything but I get such a kick out of it.

Although it is a 3 star hotel, it looks so different! I saw the fluffy phone on IG, haha! You can only be happy that you are the youngest person there, haha! Enjoy!

That phone made me laugh :) Looks like a fun place to stay, as long as it is clean and have free breakfast, I'm good :) I've always wanted to visit Graceland. It's definitely on my list of places to see when the kids are older!

Kim, I have a friend who lives in Memphis. She used to live here in NW Ohio. She's constantly telling me how much hotter it is there in Memphis. Wow, 85 degrees! My baby sis has been to the Heartbreak Hotel and loved it. She's an Elvis fan (has been since day one!). Safe, enjoyable travels to you!!! T. xx T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
