Don't call the Loews Vanderbilt Nashville the "Heartbreak Hotel." At least, don't plan on it unless you're booking their "Elvis in the Music City" package in celebration of The King himself. Elvis Presley's 75th birthday falls on January 8th of next year, and in honor of the music icon, the Nashville hotel has cobbled together a over-the-top package that's all glitz, glam, and calls to mind images of gold lame jumpsuits. Expect plenty of royal extravagances to be included, with a price to match: $3,975 for accommodations and a host of Elvis-themed activities.

We're still "All Shook Up" after hearing the price, but if you're an Elvis-lover, this hotel news couldn't have come at a better time, or with more Elvis-centric perks. They're slightly ridiculous as you might expect, but remember, this is the same hotel that hosted a $1,599/night "Hound of Music" package for aspiring canine singers. The Elvis offerings are tame and relatively normal in comparison.

Check out the full list of what's included after the jump.

We didn't know this but it's actually Elvis Week, an entire week devoted to all things Elvis Presley.

While the planned Elvis Hotel for Vegas is not open yet, there is another way you can combine your love of hotels, the King and truffles.

Whist at The Viceroy Santa Monica has created Elvis Truffles as part of the restaurant's new dessert menu which was unveiled this month. Here's what's inside a $12 truffle:

milk chocolate, toasted peanuts, nueske's bacon, caramelized bananas

OMG. Thank you Viceroy, thank you very much.
