This is a great hotel. We stayed one night. The morning of leaving we did the ICE event. We had a great time. It was so neat to see the hotel all decorated for Christmas. I have stayed here a few times now & have had a great experience every time.

Attended a conference here for 4 days. Accommodations are very nice. Service is great. I did hear the parking was ridiculous, but we didn't have a car so it wasn't an issue for us. Meeting rooms, meals and snacks that were part of the conference were all very nice - and the food was good.

Gaylord Palms Resort- My husband and I went for our Anniversary on December 1st. Our stay was everything we expected and more. We found out that Gaylord is now part of Marriott Hotels. We booked here because of a recommendation to see the ICE presentation. This is a yearly ICE Sculptor presentation that is truly amazing. Since the rates were... More

We have been see Ice a few times before but I think it's the last time we will be back to it due to the cost of it all. $18 + tax to park the car for 1 hour is taking the Mickey! I nearly just turned around there. It is criminal to charge that amount for such a short... More

The hotel has a really nice ground and it was decorated nicely for the holidays. The Christmas night show was worth seeing. However, the service left room for improvement. During our two nights stay, I called the service line to ask questions/get service several times, 80% of the time I had to sit on the phone for at least 3-5... More

We love staying at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando!! I have stayed there for over 10 years but always through my job at MoneyShow. This time we went on our own for their ICE show, which was AWESOME! The kids (adults too) had a GREAT time. We highly recommend ICE at the Gaylord!! We will be going back again. We... More

Only there for two night business stay. Location is great, 30 minutes from airport and right at the entrance for Disney. While the theme and central courtyard is pretty kitschy (i.e. Spanish fort, live alligators, 1800's mill) the grounds are beautifully kept - both inside and out - and the rooms are large, clean and modern. Great pool area, gym... More

Having driven by this resort dozens of times, we decided to give it a try and see the Ice Show as well. We booked to connecting rooms for our family. Although connecting rooms are not guaranteed we were told we shouldn't have a problem if we arrived early. We arrived around 1pm and waited in line seemingly forever. Everyone was... More

The resort is overall a beautiful property to look at. The checkin process is ridiculously slow. The restaurants are not that good and extremely expensive. Ate at a group lunch for Thanksgiving in the Sun Ballroom and the food was horrible. I would not stay here again.

We decided to visit Gaylord Palms to see 'Ice'. The ice show was very good but be warned... The coats they give you to keep warm are not up to the job AND even though me and my wife spent $50+ on the show and over $100 in the Ice shop they still charged us nearly $20 for parking. Please...even... More
