First time at the hotel celebrating our anniversary. Absolutely loved everything about it! We bought a room and "Ice" tickets package and it worked out very well. This hotel costs more than we would usually spend but it was worth every penny! Highly recommend!!

We attended ICE on Saturday, December 3rd. Although we had tickets that were for 1:00pm, we were in the line queue for two and a half hours before we got in to the display. They have four different rooms blocked off with these long black curtains. You think when you get to the end of the line in that room,...

We spent the day at the hotel visiting family. Customer service was great, the atmosphere was very cool. We enjoyed a couple drinks and lounging on a room balcony. The place is so big we really feel like we need to go back for a longer visit.

Third year in a row for ICE. NO LONGER a pleasant experience. Parking was HORRENDOUS! Bought tickets in mid Oct for 3:00. Arrived 15 minutes early as suggested BUT didn't get into show until 4:40. Were told we could pay $10 more per person to be placed ahead of ALL THOSE OTHERS who had tickets with specific times on their...

My family and I had a great time. We went for the Christmas season and the ICE experience. Here's a few pointers. Get a room on the 5th floor or above with an atrium view (any lower there's probably going to be some view obstruction). If you can, get a room on the Emerald Bay section, that way you should...

We had such a great family evening at ICE! It was worth the wait! Although I do think they could make the wait a bit more pleasant, after the third time the film got boring and the kids got restless! Not enough seats in the snack area but again all in all it was fun! Charlie Brown Christmas was amazing!!!

We went about 6 years ago and it was amazing. This year was unorganized and the wait was terrible. Had tickets for 3:00 and did not get in there until after 4. Ridiculous! Staff had no idea what was going on. They should cut back the limit of tickets sold for each exhibit time, but then they would not make...

If you are planning to go .... you need to know that parking is terrible and expensive and the staff is not helpful. You will pay $22.00 + tax whether you park and attend the event or if you just drive around trying to park and decide not to stay because you can't find a parking spot. Also, be aware...

I have to say I was blown away by this hotel and that's not something I often say. I stayed at the Gaylord in MD/DC last year and wan't impressed, so didn't have high expectations for this Gaylord. This is a completely different hotel. I love how they did the atrium in all the different eco-regions of Florida. Really beautiful....
