Elvis Presley Approved: Gulf Hills Hotel
Gulf Hills Hotel & Conference Center in Ocean Springs is perfectly nestled within the prestigious residential community of Gulf Hills. The exquisite waterfront backdrop is a display of nature’s finest with land that rolls right alongside lush marsh of the tree-lined Old Fort Bayou. Of course, this picturesque scene is optimum for the 18-hole championship Gulf Hills Golf Course located right at the front door of the hotel.
"Elvis Presley who stayed in the hotel during the summers"
"Gulf Hills Hotel and Golf Course has been a prominent and well known Gulf Coast landmark since 1927. Many people of talent have graced our doors over the years. The single best known was Elvis Presley who stayed in the hotel during the summers from 1951 - 1957; along with his family, band, friends and security detail. He was playing The Louisiana Hayride circuit. Gulf Hills offered him peace, quiet, horses and a central location from which to work. During the past 6 years, we have sponsored and fostered the annual Mississippi Songwriters Festival from inception to today's much sought after invitation to participate. We have been an integral partner in helping to grow and promote some of Mississippi's finest musicians thru song. We are happy now to be a part of the Ocean Springs Live family as well. We strive to promote our community as both a local and tourist destination." - Donna
