Stayed here for two nights with family while we celebrated a birthday. Glad our room was located not too far from the lobby because my relatives were on the 2nd floor of the Delta area and those hallways were LONG!!!!! A bit confusing, everything is color coded on the map but it's still easy to get confused. The arcade didn't stay open too late on Friday/Saturday night so that was a bummer for the kids. I opted to do the valet parking ($40 nightly) and they would often get confused and backed up. The beds were GREAT!!!

Dates of Stay: Thursday, 12/5/19 - Sunday, 12/8/19 Length of Stay: 3 Nights In a nutshell, the Gaylord Opryland is one of the most amazing resorts around, and with its annual "A Country Christmas" Celebration, there is no better place to spend the holidays!! The Gaylord Opryland offers AMAZING staff and service, countless fun activities, a spectacular water-park and well appointed rooms. This property truly is a must-stay in Nashville!!! Now, for my detailed review: First, this is my go-to hotel in Nashville, and I have stayed at this property on multiple prior occasions; several for conferences and also for personal vacations. Unlike many resorts, which seem to decline in quality as the years pass, with each stay at the Gaylord Opryland, service continues to shine! For more information on this truly AMAZING resort, feel free to take also see some of my prior reviews: -August 2018, entitled: "Another Spectacular Stay!! Truly beautiful property; a destination in itself!! (posted August 16, 2018) -February 2016, entitled: "Another Truly AMAZING Stay at the Gaylord Opryland!!!" (posted February 17, 2016) -June 2012, entitled: "A Truly AMAZING Property with Excellent Service in the Perfect Location!!" (posted June 5, 2012) So, as you can see -- I LOVE this property and always enjoy visiting. Although many people may view the Gaylord Opryland as just a huge conference center for business trips, it truly is so very much more -- it has enough to be a vacation destination in itself, especially during the Holiday Season! This was my first visit to Gaylord Opryland during the holidays, but I have always wanted to go to see its annual "A Country Christmas" event and I am so very happy that I did. Honestly, "A County Christmas" was so amazing, I wish I had experienced it sooner! Each year, the Gaylord Opryland comes alive for the holidays and offers "A County Christmas" which allows one to experience the holidays in Nashville style! There is so much to see and do during this period, you most certainly will need several days! Each year, there are several annual events that should not be missed! A prime feature of this annual event is "Ice!" This event is a staple of all of the Gaylord properties, but due to the size of Gaylord Opryland, it has a very unique feel in Nashville! Each year, the theme changes -- and rotates between the various Gaylord properties. This year, the theme was "A Christmas Story" and it was truly amazing! Countless scenes from this holiday classic have been recreated in ice, to include the the fragile lamp and the triple-dog-dare. As with all Gaylord Ice! events, it ends with a truly beautiful crystal-ice nativity and features bone-chilling temperatures. This spectacular event is separately ticketed but is truly worth it and should not be missed! Unlike many other Gaylord properties, which house Ice! simply in part of the convention center, the Gaylord Opryland places Ice! just behind the main guest building in a quaint little village it calls "Pinetop at Gaylord Opryland." This unique venue offers numerous other fun holiday activities. First, inside the Gaylord Opryland Events Center, you will find not only Ice! but also a Gingerbread Decoration Corner, complete with a cute and cuddly Gingerbread Man for photos. Additionally, there is the "Arctic Lounge" Ice Bar which features amazing drinks, and a Build-a-Bear Workshop. Next, just outside you will find many features unique to Gaylord Opryland. Throughout the day, you are able to ice skate at a large and well-maintained outdoor ice rink. And, on various nights, this ice rink is transformed for that is truly an AMAZING spectacular, "A Rockin' Christmas on Ice." This is not just your ordinary ice skating show, as it features ice dancing, singing and some cirque-Du-soleil style acts that is performed by Olympic-quality skaters. This is an entirely free show, with ample standing room around the rink that should not be missed! Should you wish to sit and relax, there is a VIP Seating area where for a very small cost you can purchase a seat in advance. Definitely a show not to be missed! Additionally, you will find a very fun snow tubing slide along with the "Santa's Spinners" ride, which is kind of like a spinning t-cups attraction. Additionally, there is a kids train that runs through Pinetop Village, as well as ample food trucks and fire pits for relaxing. Finally, in Pinetop Village, as this is Nashville, you will find amazing live music each day! All-in-all, these unique features at Gaylord Opryland should not be missed and make any trip worth it! But, it is not just in Pinetop Village where you will find holiday fun -- the entire resort itself is decked out for the season! Throughout the various atriums, you will find beautiful holiday decor. Additionally, along the Delta River inside the Delta Atrium you will find a truly massive and beautiful Christmas Tree. And, speaking of the Delta River, if you are a fan of this property's Delta Riverboat Cruise, they offer a truly fun and unique Holiday Version of this classic cruise. Additionally, you will have loads of fun exploring the property to complete the "Reindeer Games Scavenger Hunt." You will find Santa near the Delta River, available for photos throughout the day, and the various restaurants offer holiday themed dining -- such as "Rudolph's Holly Jolly Feast" where you can dine with Rudolph and the Elves. Finally, each evening this property's nightly Delta Fountain Show has be re-orchestrated with holiday lights and music for a spectacular event that you absolutely cannot miss! And, it is not just inside the property that is all decked out for the holidays; just outside of the Magnolia Lobby you will find a truly amazing display of Christmas Trees and lights, along with a beautiful nativity scene. You are easily able to walk outside to see this display each evening, or for even more holiday fun, the property offers nightly carriage rides which are relaxing and fun! Finally, one annual event that should most certainly not be missed is "The Gift of Christmas with Trace Adkins & Friends." On select nights, Trace Adkins gives a dinner concert in the Tennessee Ballroom. This event fills quickly, so make sure to book well in advance and although all seats in the ballroom offer great views, VIP Seating is available for only slightly more -- we opted for VIP Seating and had amazing views of Trace throughout the show. And, as you enjoy your evening, an excellent dinner is provided. You will have an amazing time and enjoy some truly great music -- after all, this is Nashville, so don't miss out on its music! This dinner event is worth every penny and should not be missed! Now, that is just the special holiday events offered -- I have not even begun to touch on the property and all it has to offer! Gaylord Opryland itself is in a truly perfect location; you are just 15-20 minutes from the Nashville International Airport and once on property, you are just 15 minutes or less from all that Downtown Nashville and its Broadway District have to offer! To get to this beautiful property from the Nashville International Airport, you have many options. The property itself offers an airport shuttle, bookable in-advance or at the Gaylord Transportation Welcome Desk in Baggage Claim at the Nashville International Airport for a reasonable cost. Shuttles run almost every thirty minutes on a regular schedule and are by large van/bus. Additionally, Nashville is very ride-share friendly and Uber/Lyft is going to cost you around $15 each way. I would strongly urge you to opt for such transportation options and avoid renting a car -- with all of your ride-share options, there truly is no need to have a car when staying at the Gaylord Opryland as you will likely never leave the property! Upon arrival via the shuttle or ride-share, you will enter into the Main Lobby, located just off the Cascades Atrium. You will be greeted by two large check-in counters, always well staffed and offering a separate check-in area for elite members. You will find that all Front Desk Staff are extremely friendly and efficient, checking you in quite quickly and offering true southern hospitality. As this is a "resort," there is a "Resort Fee" which offers several great features and will be explained at check-in. It is only $20 plus tax per day -- far less than many other resorts -- and that price is very reasonable considering all that it includes: -High-speed in-room WiFi (complimentary in Lobby & Public Areas as well) -Daily $10 credit for dry-cleaning services -2 bottles of water, refreshed daily -Complimentary scheduled shuttle service to the Opry Mills Shopping Center, Grand Ole Opry House, General Jackson Showboat & the Inn at Opryland -Cover charge for up to 4 guests at the Wildhorse Saloon -Gaylord Links practice range access In addition to all of that, you will have a discount packet with various coupons for the shops and dining at the Opry Mills Shopping Center. All-in-all, a very decent set of inclusions for such a moderate fee! Additionally, a note on WiFi that is included with your Resort Fee; unlike many other resorts, the WiFi truly is high speed and is perfect for streaming! But, you likely won't need to stream anything as this is a Marriott-branded property, and thus all of the in-room televisions are high-definition smart televisions, allowing easy access to all streaming services, including Netflix. So, if you feel like binge-watching a movie in your room, you will have no issues! And, as for your room, all rooms at the Gaylord Opryland are very well appointed and although are now Marriott, still retain the original Gaylord charm! Each room is equipped with a plush and comfortable Marriott bed, along with typical Marriott towels in the bathroom. The Gaylord-brand has its own bath products, which are quite nice and you will be provided with bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion. Keeping with Marriott's concern for the environment, all bath products -- except for the lotion -- are now found in large refillable bottles attached to the shower walls. And, as for the shower, it was spacious and always seemed to offer great temperature and water pressure. Make sure to book an Atrium View Room. Yes, it is a bit more pricey but the Atrium View Rooms offer truly spectacular views and most Atrium rooms offer a private balcony with table and two chairs allowing one to relax and take in all that the property has to offer. Additionally, if you want to truly splurge -- like we did on this trip -- the property offers many large and beautifully appointed Suites. We booked a King Room with Attached Parlor Suite and had an AMAZING time with beautiful views of the Delta Atrium and the Christmas tree. All-in-all, a spectacular room experience; I have attached numerous photos of this Suite should you wish to view them! One truly wonderful new feature of the Gaylord Opryland is "Soundwaves," which is a spectacular indoor/outdoor water park that should not be missed! Inside you will find two lazy rivers, a wave-rider surf simulator, and multiple slides and water attractions. During the summer months, you will find a massive wave-pool outside. As it was December, we were only able to experience all that was indoors, but we found it perfect for an entire day of relaxation. Now, you must know that this is a capacity-controlled water park and only guests who have booked a Soundwaves package in advance will have access. But, it is well worth it and the capacity controls truly made it feel like it was not crowded at all and there was never any wait for anything! Make sure not to miss Soundwaves and add it on to your stay; we had an amazing time with your first Soundwaves experience and cannot wait to go back! And finally, as for dining, you will never go hungry at the Gaylord Opryland as it offers something wonderful for everyone! For upscale and romantic dining, do not miss out on "Old Hickory Steakhouse." This is a Gaylord tradition that is located at all Gaylord properties, but only at Gaylord Opryland can you find the venue is a replica plantation home overlooking the waterfalls of Delta Island. The service at "Old Hickory" cannot be beat, and the steaks are AMAZING! Also, don't miss out on the attached "Library Bar" which offers amazing cocktails and wine. Additionally, don't miss out on "Ravello" if you enjoy Italian. Ravello is located among the lush greenery of the Garden Conservatory and offers truly spectacular Italian cuisine along with great service. This should not be missed! For more casual table service dining, I would highly recommend both "Fuse Sports Bar" and "Jack Daniels" offering amazing lunch and dinner options. Both also offer the stellar service that this and all Gaylord properties are known for. Finally, for casual quick-serve dining, my two favorites have to be "Stax" for a great quick burger or "Paisanos" for amazing pizza. And, that is not all -- there are plenty of other venues I have gone to in the past but didn't have time to visit this trip, including "Findlay's" which is a great Irish Pub, "Solario Cantina" offering amazing Mexican, and many others! You most certainly will never tire of your dining options at the Gaylord Opryland, but should you wish to leave, the Opry Mills Shopping Center is within easy walking distance and has a traditional food court, along with such venues as Rainforrest Cafe, Aquarium Cafe, Chilis, TGI Fridays, and even Dave & Busters. So, you will never go hungry during any stay at the Gaylord Opryland! So, all-in-all, the Gaylord Opryland is an AMAZING property with no equal!! This is one of my favorite convention venues but it is much more -- you will find that the Gaylord Opryland truly is a destination in itself. Make sure not to miss this amazing property on your next trip to Nashville!!!

The Gaylord Nashville is a beautiful hotel. It is also very large. If you have any problems with walking too far for whatever reason you might ask to have your room closer to the conference rooms. Great location, be sure to do the City Sightseeing tour.

Expensive rooms that don't offer anything more than the pleasure of saying you stayed at the Gaylord hotel. Very disappointing esp after staying at a much cheaper hotel (Hampton Inn) in another city where the amenities are better. Overpriced food. CROWDS! If you like crowds, this is the place for you. If you are seeing something at the Grand Ol Opry - it is walking distance. If you are interested in going to downtown Nashville - it is a 20 minute drive. Another plus, several places within walking distance with EXCELLENT live free music - Nashville Palace.

Stayed this past week for a convention. Rooms are decent size. Bathrooms small. Numerous places to eat from sandwiches to a sports bar to fine dining. Nice fitness center. You really don’t need to leave. Food prices in the resort are expensive but you’d expect that. There are some cheaper restaurants across the street from the resort. They are are 15 minute walk. There is a water park for kids but didn’t go there. The resort/convention center is a 20 minute ride to downtown or the airport.
