The staff were all friendly and helpful....clearly well trained and motivated. The grounds were a delight. The room was spotless, comfortable and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable. This hotel is the place to stay if you are visiting Disneyworld which is only a few miles away.

It is a good hotel if one likes living under dome. It has a very pretty man-made environment with water falls and streams with fish running through the entire complex which is huge. We were there for a convention so much of that was lost on us as we were busy most of the time. The prices in the restaurants... More

The hotel is an event in itself, so much to do and see for all ages. The kids pool is as great as it looks in pictures. We took one of our little ones for mermaid classes and she LOVED it. You can buy a tail (which is incredibly expensive) or they will lend you one for the class...then you'll... More

This place is top notch. Tons to do, lobby atrium has all kinds of Florida wildlife, Wreckers sports bar is one of a kind. I agree the food is overpriced but its a resort and they have you captive. My family and I had a great experience, service was top notch.

As always the Gaylord is an extremely nice place. Our kids 4 and 7 yo had a great time holding the baby alligators and seeing turtles. There was plenty of kids activities. We went on a treasure hunt and my daughter got to act in a pirate play. The rooms are great and as an added perk you have access... More

The rooms are super nice and spacious. I had stayed at the Gaylord Opryland in the past and already had a general idea on what to expect. It's easy to get a little lost so if you're not familiar with the property I would suggest grabbing a map. There's an over 18 pool with a bar and waitstaff. You can... More

I was surprised that the Gaylord kept me entertained. Yes, mainly for a fee, but there were activities that were free and entertaining for both kids and adults. Though there are plenty of paid services from the spa, the free activities include holding baby gators, learning and watching the feeding of the various aquatic fishes and reptiles, touring the botanics...

I stayed at the Gaylord palm and I didn't like it. Their buffet is expensive for the quality of food. There is nothing within walking distance. I don't recommend it. I found it hard to get a ride from the hotel when I was planning to go to universal studios

What a great property to spend a day. The pool has an amazing kids areas and sides. The prices are comparable to others in the Orlando vicinity. This was our first stay at this brand, and we truly enjoyed the setting, the stay, and the location. A standard room is more than enough, you seriously do not need a balcony... More

I stayed at Gaylord with co-workers for a couple of nights, and for my surprise, Uber is not allowed to pick up there. I was told and forced by an employee to use the black car service, which is 4x more expensive. Management should take a close look at this situation. It's my opition to use wherever I want. The...
