I had a business meeting at the Gaylord for a day and a half. It felt almost like being at a Vegas casino or huge beach resort rather than being in the middle of Texas! So that was a nice unusual twist for a business trip.
Rooms were clean, large, average amenities.
Staff I encountered were all very pleasant and extremely helpful from the front desk, to the car/taxi service, and restaurant staff. The airport shuttle is a good deal compared to the car service, but if you're running late for a flight, approx $35 for the car service that leaves immediately will win out over the $12 shuttle that you might have to wait up to 25 minutes for (it goes every 30 minutes).
Food served in the hotel ballroom for our meeting was above average for hotel food.
This would be a great place to go back for another meeting, but seemed a little too crowded for my tastes for vacation. There is a theme park and water park nearby, but I'm not sure I'd want to mix a family trip with a bunch of business travelers.
