Elevators being down was a bit of a pain since the hotel layout is so long. Having just one bank down made the others very slow.
The place was beautiful. The shower was the best part of our room.
Our sheets/comforter were dirty. Our room was on the ground level facing a parking lot, so what we paid for our room was not worth it at all. The toilet seat underneath was dirty also.
Nice resort ... really busy
The long lines to check in... had to wait for a while. There was some event there and it caused a lot of delays, especially valet
The resort is huge!!! Extremely well maintained and absolutely beautiful to look at.
Not all inclusive
Parking was horrible with the construction. Super long walk to room.
I booked this 2 days prior to a training at the hotel and it turned out to be the most spectacular room. I am going back with my family. It's a truly unique and magnificent experience. The type of room I had was huge with a Murphy bed and electric fireplace along with a dining room table for six and living room. The private double balcony overlooked the cascades.
For a business training it was expensive even with a great rate the extra respect fees like parking are high but the resort was beautiful. I had problems with my in room coffee maker and they delivered a new one.
Way too expensive for the quality of the rooms/ame
After staying a night in a room without a tub, they were willing to switch rooms for us to a room with a tub.
The first king room we stayed in didn't have a tub or a microwave. The shower had the hair from whoever stayed there last on the floor which was disgusting. The night before we stayed at a comfort inn for more than half the price to save money and that room was actually much nicer than the Gaylord. Wish I would've just saved the money and stayed at the comfort inn and driven in to the Gaylord to walk around it for a couple hours. Also having to paying $26 a night in parking per vehicle is ridiculous and another way they squeeze you for every fume they can.
Not even close to worth the money spent
We had excellent service in one of the restaurants. Also, the Christmas decorations were beautiful.
It was raining and you couldn't pull up to the overhead shelter to unload your car. They made you park (an obscene $24.00 per day to park) and unload your car and walk to the entrance. They had shut down one of the check in stations just before we arrived, consequently we were probably 50th in line to check in. We arrived around 5:30 p.m. The line was even longer an hour later. Directions to our room (the place is huge) were very confusing and the elevator to our room was out of order. We took the stairs. Also, one of the escalators was out of order as well. Only two pillows per bed. We stayed at a Holiday Inn Express the next night. Four pillows per bed. Smaller room but more comfortable and much less expensive. Will not go back.
The place was amazing eye candy. The gardens and water features are so beautiful. We had a great time walking around throughout the place.
The headboard on one of the beds had a few places where the vinyl had peeled off. There was no liner for our ice bucket and underneath the bucket was a hair tie, which leads me to think, the room wasn't cleaned properly. Also didn't like the hidden servic fees tagged on to our bill which where explained as, "that pays for the complimentary wifi, 2 bottled water" and what would seem to be our privilege of walking around and looking at the hotel.
People are nice
The room was tiny for the price Poor directions and signage
The room was nice, clean and comfortable. It was nice to walk around all the property and see all the plants, flowers and shops. We enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool in the evenings. Staff was friendly and helpful.
We did not like that we had to walk so far to get to our room. We parked in self park. There was not anywhere close to drive up our car and unload. We had to bring our luggage from the parking lot to our room which was a very long walk. Every time we left, we had that long walk to our car and then back to the room. I would have been lost and not able to find my way most of the time if my husband, who has a great since of direction, had not been with me.
The hotel ameneties was great!!! Great friendly staff!
Nothing, everything was great!
the ease of the shuttle bus to surrounding events and the downtown area. The personnel were all well informed and pleasant.
clasical ,unique, an experience that will want to be repeated
Beautiful tropical setting that never gets too hot. Nice airport shuttle. Convenient shuttle to Opryland Mills mall. Shuttles always on time. Drivers poplite and friendly. I have never stayed anywhere that the entire staff was so polite and friendly. Usually housekeepers look miserable -- not these -- All, and I mean all, looked happy (whether they were or not -- I know about that personally). It really positively affected my own mood. Everyone did a great job.
A heater in the bathroom would be nice. The small one I brought shut off -- I understand about safety concerns, but I can't stand showers in a cold room. Food was far too expensive, however, I quickly learned to go to the mall.
Went on riverboat show and dinner crouse, and toured the hotel grounds.
The hidden surcharges.
Theming was fabulous. Lots of places to eat...you didn't have to leave the resort for any reason, if you didn't want to
Clean and comfortable room accommodations
I felt I was on a tropical Island Resort.
It's very difficult to find anything there..even the bellman got lost. The room is pretty stripped down to the basics yet it has the price of a lavish suite
More than just a hotel, the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center is a destination resort full of gardens, a jungle, multiple bars and restaurants, and even an indoor river. Guests can tour the resort by taking the riverboat ride through the 4.5-acre indoor garden, which encompasses about half of the property’s size.
The largest continental U.S. non-gaming hotel, Gaylord Opryland houses so many plants, trees, and flowers that the hotel employs a staff of 20 horticulturists to maintain them. Rooms range from single rooms to two-bedroom suites, many with interior atrium views.
Gaylord Opryland hosts live acts throughout the year, with an annual holiday extravaganza. Ice sculptures, millions of twinkling lights, and an ice rink round out some of the winter activities.
With nearly 20 dining options, Gaylord Opryland Resort has a restaurant for nearly every cuisine. Guests can sip whiskey at Jack Daniel’s, indulge in Italian at Paisano's Pizzaria and Vino, sample local beer at the Delta Market, and enjoy brunch at Cascades American Cafe. An Irish pub, a steakhouse, a sports bar, ice cream shops, and coffeehouses are some more dining options.
The spa and hair salon is a favorite of locals as well as hotel guests. Retail shops are located throughout the resort selling everything from Nashville souvenirs to Swarovski crystals. Other resort activities include an 18-hole golf course, three pools, an arcade, and a nightly water and light show.
The Grand Ole Opry is a short walk away while downtown Nashville is about a 15-minute drive away. Guests can listen to live music on South Broadway, experience the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, or buy a vintage concert poster at Hatch Show Print. Gaylord Opryland Resort offers a round-trip shuttle to Nashville International Airport, less than 10 miles away.
