Their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley was born exactly nine months later, on February 1, 1968. In late 2016, Priscilla officiated the opening of the Guest House at Graceland Hotel & Resort. Two of the “Upstairs” suites are named after Elvis’ parents. The Vernon and Gladys suites are, “Inspired by Elvis’ Palm Springs home.”The Alexander Estate” also known as The House of Tomorrow, is a mid-century Modernism icon. Condé Nast Traveler, Marie Claire, Fodor’s, Travel Channel, AAA Westways, Time, & Architectural Digest have featured it. The Fuji Television Network, based in Daiba, Minato, Tokyo, Japan, spent several days filming throughout the home, for an episode that aired during the summer of 2015.
