The interior of this hotel is spectacular. There are a number of gardens and lots of trails. A great place for a wedding. Beautiful water falls and water features. There is even an boat ride. We parked at the mall and walked over.

By far the most beautiful hotel I have stayed in to date! The attention to detail and sheer size of this resort leave you with a feeling that you are living temporarily in a work of art. There is a restaurant for every possible taste, with the best representation of each style. I suggest a stay of 3 or more days to fully experience this resort.

If you have one choice to stay at a great place make this one in your top 10. What a fabulous giant hotel. It's so large though I don't recommend it for older folks, but if you can pretty well walk this is such a beautiful place to stay. They have 9 restaurants, plenty of bars and shops and they pretty much cater to you. Breakfast was one of the best we had in our travels down south and the Jack Daniels Restaurant had the great pulled pork. Warning: you will do a lot of walking. They have waterfalls, skywalks, balconies and so much more. The drinks at The Falls were the best. Great Place! And they have a shuttle to take you downtown. Hotel is right next to Grand Ole Opry.

Room Tip: Choose an Atrium room closer to the Main Level.

We went for a 4 day trip .The hotel was very nice but the music downtown was the best we've heard in a long time . It was hard to say which bar was better. Went to the Ryman one night and the Opry the next. If you like country music it doesn't get better than this !

Room Tip: if it's your first time spend a little more and get and atrium room. You can sit out and take in...

If you are interested in waiting 20 minutes minimum for a bell person or carrying your own luggage for something that feels like miles to the self park and you have no interest in customer service stay here than this hotel is for you.

Every person we spoke to there was rude and the larger wing is very far from the self parkiing. There are no signs if you drive in from the mall direction so good luck finding the hotel entrance in less than 30 minutes. Also, when you call housekeeping don't expect them to bring everything you ask for.

Also, they may call and ask how your service was and tell you if you were not happy to let them know what went wrong so they can make you happy. The only thing is don't waste your time because they really don't want to know or at least they dont want to do anything worth your while to make you happy (A.k.a compensate you in any way).

It is tragic because you will find the hotel is nice looking , clean, and has ammentities. But sadly no service!!!!

This is the place to stay for a nice relaxing weekend. You could spend the entire weekend on it's grounds, or explore Nashville and visit the Grand Ole Opry. We loved it. Easy to get to from the airport or downtown Nashville

I have stayed at this property twice for work. While the indoor area is really beautiful, it is typically extremely crowded if a conference is going on and check-in can take a while. The layout of this hotel is somewhat confusing at first and because it's so large. You will be walking great distances, which is not a bad thing unless you are in high heels for work, in which case I would say just wear your most comfortable shoes. The air is somewhat stifling around the water features and plants and then the thermostats in the rooms are old and difficult to figure out. The rooms are freezing and the blankets on the beds are more for aesthetics and not warmth or comfort. The food in the hotel is extremely overpriced and very poorly done, I recommend leaving the hotel for a better value. The staff is very friendly and the novelty of the hotel is nice but the for the cost and overall experience, you are far better off elsewhere. I will only stay here again if I have another work conference located in this hotel, it would be too much o a hassle to drive in from somewhere else because self-parking is $20 a day regardless if you stay at the property or not.
