“Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is one of those places you need to go to at least once in a lifetime. The rooms may not be the best, the staff has a reputation for sometimes being surly, the food is over priced but its an experience. My daughters described it as fairy land. Its a good place to escape and just be. I love to wake up early get a cup of coffee and sit and listen to the waterfalls and absorb the peace. It is so huge plan on getting lost at least once but that is also part of the experience.
While we were there the staff was very friendly and helpful. My only big complaint was the lack of breakfast options. They need some sort of family friendly venue. Every thing is over priced but we knew that going in and accepted that. We ended up at the cafe but the lines were long and the options very limited. If you have a family plan on going elsewhere to eat.
Also, be prepared for the parking situation. Self park and valet aren't that much difference cost wise, but its still almost 30$, and valet parking took close to 30 mins. This can be difficult with a car full of tired anxious kids.

Room Tip: The Magnolia section has no balconies and older rooms but their own separate valet which was faster.

I gave it 3 stars because the room was nice but we won't stay again.The venue is way too big. We got lost trying to find a restaurant after the Oprey show. Had to wait for the bus to get back and most of the restaurants were closed at 10. Our room faced the atrium but counldn't use balcony because it was really musty smelling. Breakfast was ok but pricey for what we got.

Room Tip: Try another hotel un the area

This was my first stay at a Gayord hotel. The facility it amazing. Staff was very friendly with most saying hello as you walked past them. Concierge was very helpful in recommending places to eat in the immediate area and in downtown. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We did not have a room with a balcony, but we still had a great view of the atrium. My only complaint is the high cost of food and drinks.

I have stayed here on numerous occasions for business. The rooms are very nice, staff friendly and accommodating and work hard to provide southern hospitality. The other review here are dead on, if you have been her before and have seen the cascades, its just not all that. The big issue here are the restaurants, Fuze offers some nice bar food with plenty of TV's for sports fans but if you want to have a business meeting over a nice dinner or lunch, its an underwhelming and overpriced experience. Pricing is not family friendly and I would not recommend it for vacationers for value. I spend three consecutive nights here annually for business and while nice I am definitely ready to check out.

Room Tip: if your a conventioneer here try to get a room close to your events, it can be trek!

We stayed there a few days for a family vacation during the summer. It’s a decent hotel and suitable for family with kids. The place is huge and we walked quite a lot. We like the outside pool area but the music/karaoke was too loud sometimes. We had to stay away from the stage/speakers. The food in the restaurant is OK and a bit of pricy of course. The wait staff were not very polite and it seemed they were reluctant to serve the table with kids (we have a 2-year-old). They also tried to give us the worst table every time. We ended up to drive out and tried different food outside the hotel, which was actually a pleasant surprise (there’re variety food choices besides south style). Overall, it’s a decent stay and we had a good time.

Glad we stayed here once. The atrium and overall atmosphere is amazing...lots to see and do. Shuttle service was great and overall a memorable stay. The room was just average although super clean. As long as you realize you're paying for the overall experience and not the room, it's acceptable. Would have appreciated some amenities for the ridiculous $18 per day resort fee like a newspaper or coffee. Quite a trek to get to your room or to walk to one of the restaurants. On top of that $20 per day to park seems excessive. Next time will stay elsewhere and just visit the atrium.

Second time I took a church group to this hotel for Christmas. Had 26 rooms and not a single complaint. The issues with the expensive food is real. There is no place to eat breakfast at a reasonable rate. The rooms are excellent. 2 queen beds or 1 king. We had rooms without a balcony and still our views were great. Our rooms were in the Magnolia wing and it looked as though they had been upgraded in the past year. Everything looked new and not worn.
Take a walk next door to the mall and you have plenty of places to eat. There is a city bus that picks up and drops off at the hotel and goes downtown.
I recommend this hotel for special occasions. The Christmas season is very special here and if you want to go once, this is the best time to go.
