I was in town for a week for an event at the Gaylord Texan hotel and the rooms there, even the group rate was astronomical not to mention they charge for everything, wifi, parking, food, breath-mints, soap... just kidding about that part but they would if they could. Heck parking at the Gaylord costs more than a room at the Townplace suites and I gotta say that as time goes on, I just don't get what value the full service hotels offer for all that money - full hassle hotel is all I can figure. enough on that - the town place has free shuttle to the Gaylord, free breakfast, free wifi, free parking,, its clean and spacious - whats not to like about this place? I cant find a thing. If anything they offer more for less - so why would I stay at the snooty full price pretentious places again? The staff are great here, the rooms are quiet clean and comfortable... simply a great value. I found myself wanting nothing else.
