I stayed here for a quick local getaway with my husband and son right after Xmas. They had a lot of holiday attractions, including a Cirque show in the lobby. It was too packed for me, so I may rethink going in the future around the holidays. Just trying to maneuver hallways was a challenge with all of the foot traffic. Still a nice stay. Plenty of shops and restaurants to visit within walking distance.

Was scheduled to attend a conference there March 14-17 and had to cancel reservations due to COVID on March 9th. I have called multiple times afterward to see why the refund for the room has not yet come through. The first time I was told that refunds could take 90-120 days because of COVID, so I put a note on my calendar to call back after 120 days (7/7/20). I called back on 8/14, over a month after the 120 days they said it could take up to, and was told again it could take 90-120 days, even though I told them I cancelled on 3/9. I pointed out that 8/14 was well over the 120 days, and at that point the agent actually looked into things a bit more. She stated that the refunds were handled by the on site accounting department, and that the hotel was currently closed and was not scheduled to reopen until October 16th. She said that they had no way to contact anyone on site and that she wasn't sure if they were doing refunds yet or if that would wait until the hotel reopened and suggested I continue to monitor if my refund came through and if it didn't by 10/16 to give them a call back and they would be able to contact someone on site. I had to cancel multiple hotels and flights for multiple faculty and staff for multiple conferences that were cancelled for COVID related issues, everything else was refunded within 60 days, most within 14 days. There is no reason that a huge national chain like this should not be able to have procedures in place - or be able to have gotten procedures in place by now - to refund their customers. HORRIBLE customer service and horrible service practices. Do better.

Covid-19 affected ALL of us. Apparently the Gaylord National Resort does not give a crap. If you're looking for a reliable hotel that provides good customer service....LOOK ELSEWHERE THAN THIS HOTEL. After the political event CPAC, officials were notified on Saturday, May 7th that at least 1 of the guests at this hotel tested positive for Covid-19 at this hotel. With a conference I was attending scheduled to begin about 24 hours later, a decision was made to cancel out of an abundance of caution. It was the right decision. I was notified of the cancellation about 4 hours before my scheduled trip to this Maryland hotel. I immediately called the hotel and eventually spoke with the supervisor who told me I could rest assured that both of the multi-day room reservations would be refunded in full. Months later, they are still refusing to refund me and numerous other attendees have been denied refunds also. As an exhibitor at this conference, I was also charged a fee of nearly $200.00 for electric services in the exhibit hall that were never provided due to this conference cancellation. They did not return my phone calls or refund me for this either. My credit card was charged yet an additional $250.00+ for some still unknown charge and Gaylord has failed to respond to this request also despite several attempts. Be wary of this hotel chain folks...there are numerous others that were denied a refund also. It's very disappointing. They are out to take your money even in the most extenuating circumstances apparently.

We booked a night to take out kids to see the Ice How The Grinch Stole Christmas.... Wow! What a awesome display of art craft and workmanship. A definite must do at least one time. We will definitely be coming back to see it again.
