My husband and I were very excited about our overnight trip to the Gaylord but were soon disappointed. We used his rewards points through Marriott to book our room. We stood in the Elite check in line for over 25 minutes. Granted, the hotel was very busy – but PUT more people on the desk then (there were finally several desk clerks that came out from the back), or DON’T even offer an Elite line (the regular line went faster). We were finally able to check in with the desk clerk telling us we had a “Deluxe King”. Wow, I thought it was going to be a fantastic room the way she said it. We went to the room – across from Housekeeping, with large bags of trash and linens in the hallway, and the room looked out over the back roof of the building at an array of antennas (couldn’t even see trees or grass). We went out to lunch and to do some shopping and we discussed how that room was NOT a loyal customer room – it was a room for a late arrival that just needed a bed. My husband had to go back to the car and I decided to speak to a Manager. Again, waited for 10 minutes, then a group of clerks again came out from the back (must be having a party back there). I approached the Manager and told him something I have NEVER said in all my travels, the room was “unacceptable for a loyal Gold Elite Marriot’s rewards member.” We SHOULD NOT have had to do that and it made me VERY uncomfortable to have to say that. He did change us right away to a much nicer room (view of the atrium), which we greatly appreciated. BUT they should not have given us that room in the first place. Also, be aware they charge a resort fee (which we did not use any of) around $19 and we self parked for $24. I will not be returning anytime soon (or ever).
