Got to stay at this lovely hotel with my husband while he was here to work at an event in the convention center. The indoor atrium area is so beautiful...lots of lush greenery, flowers and even some turtles and little alligators!!!
Our room was clean, well decorated and the bed was super comfortable. The comforter was soft and not too bulky. We even had a little balcony that overlooked the atrium area.
This would be a great place for kids too, with the huge pool, water slides and a big screen with animated movies!!

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevators if you're a light sleeper!

I must say I'm not a big fan of the Gaylord Palms. The hotel and adjacent restaurants are all enclosed with a glass ceiling, giving the hotel guest a sense of being enclosed in a greenhouse. By the end of the stay, I longed to get out for some fresh air. The restaurants are incredibly overpriced. The sushi restaurant serves the equivalent of half portions (one piece instead of the customary 2 pieces per order). For a party of two adults and two small children, we paid $120 and left hungry. There are no other restaurants (other than those that are part of the hotel) or entertainment options in the vicinity, or within walking distance, so we were forced to drive several miles to find affordable food. There are plenty of other hotel options in the Orlando area, many of which are walking distance to restaurants.

I Stayed at the Gaylord Palms in May, 2013 for a conference and the business services were great. This is a perfect facility for a convention, lots of room and very easy to navigate. The hotel is beautiful with all of the restaurants inside. Loved the everglades walk and the shops along the way. I dined at the Hickory Steak House and the Villa de Flora, both had amazing food and service. My room was in the Emerald Bay section and I was fortunate to get upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the inside and the pool.
The free shuttle to Epcot Disney and other Disney properties was a great service! The pool was amazing!
My only negative comment is that the walls are paper thin, I could hear the people in the next room and they were very loud. I would recommend adding some sound proofing and updating the bathrooms with walk in showers. Front desk check-in was smooth although my reservations were messed up and I did not get my room cleaned or any housekeeping services the last day. I had to call for towels.
Overall, a great stay and I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are really nice that overlook the inside.

This hotel is beautiful and well maintained. There are several options for dining and relaxing at the resort. The location is not very centralized for many of the local attractions, so you will need a car, and parking is not included (neither self park or valet).
We selected this hotel due to the location of a local prom.

Room Tip: If you select a room with an atrium view, you will avoid seeing the swings in central florida weathe...

Gaylord Palms is an extremely classy resort that has everything you need right there. The hotel is built around an atrium which is filled with flowers and foliage. It is absolutely beautiful! It has several dining options right there and also several unique shops. In the winter it is home to ICE which if you have never been is well worth the price. They've just added a water park also which I'm sure would live up to any Disney standard. I highly recommend this hotel!!

Gaylord is beautifully well appointed hotel. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. Especially the atrium rooms. The lush greenery and beautiful trees are so beautiful to wake up to. The pool area for the kids is amazing and super fun. Very easy to keep track of the kids. Great tiki bar by the pool. Service while sunning is great touch. I highly recommend staying at the Gaylord Palms your next trip to Orlando!
