Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
Ranked #18 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The Gaylord Palms is beautiful and as previously mentioned exactly like a casino without gambling.
With an atrium room one can open their balcony onto the lush indoor gardens and take in the fresh air.It is also a great place to stroll about in the evening after dinner.
The Chicken Sandwich at Sunset Sams with yucca fries was nice paired with a glass of merlot.
Outdoors the waterpark and pools would thrill any family.
Gym is adequate and well equipped.
Only small complaint is that while I enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening the only choice here is the fairly expensive bar options. It would be nice to be able to purchase a split or bottle in an on site store.

Room Tip: Pick an atrium room and leave your doors open for a real outdoor feel. Balconys are perfect.

This hotel is extremely nice and ususally pricey but if you look there are certain times where it can be affordable. The kids love it with the big courtyard and waterfalls. The waterpark out back during warm months is so worth it. The fact that it is only open to hotel guests is a real plus.

Room Tip: Rooms near the elevators are a plus because it is a large hotel.

This is a lovely place to stay and really nice and well equipped! No complaints EXCEPT one - the obnoxious air freshener that permeates the lobby!! For someone like me that is extremely allergic to any fragrance, this is overwhelming enough to give me an asthma attack, which is close to what happened every time I got to the lobby area! I do hope their management reads this and takes action, because for that one reason, I may avoid it the next time.

Room Tip: The atrium facing rooms have a nice ambiance.

I attended a conference here last week and stayed in the hotel. It's about 20 minutes from the Orlando airport($45 taxi). The hotel is huge and more like a casino without gambling. There are a lot if dining options and outdoor pools. There is a waterpark too. The fitness center is huge and has a lot of cardio and weight equipment. My room was average but had a nice shower (no bath tub). The downside is that there is nothing close by outside of the hotel that you can walk to. There is a resort fee but it covers the fitness center and other amenities. Marriott just purchased the Gaylord facilities but when I stayed there were no changes.

My husband and I stayed here for our first year anniversary. We were allowed to check in early and were given an upgraded room. It was absolutely stunning. The staff were beyond friendly went out of their way to help us.
The hotel itself is something out of the movies. There's huge atrium with different Florida landscape and it was
just mind blowing. Wonderful Gabby( from the front desk) sent us champagne and strawberries!!!!!! Thank you!!!!

The pool and hot tub areas are huge and the food at the pool bar delicious. Drinks are pricey but that's be expected!

My only recommendation is that the hotel enforce the adults only rule for the hot tub. There were about 10 kids in the hot tub while we were there.

We ate at the buffet place Villa De Flora it was delicious. Expensive, 33.00 pp but great quality food. The sangria is a must try!!

The only snafu was checking out. It took several tries to get the bill right. We were Inadvertently charged two resort fees and two valet fees. The front desk was super helpful in correcting it but you do need to go over your bill closely before checking out.

All in all A++++++++++++++

Thank you Gaylord Palms for an incredible experience. We will be back!!

This was a 5 star clean lovely beautiful and business And family friendly enjoyed variety of restaurants and I enjoyed my room exceptionally well remodeled fresh clean and stylish. It try was very welcoming and one of the things I really loved was that my bed was made exactly how I liked it and the spa was perfect. You can see by the valet, front, desk and management that this is a property that is unlike any other.

This is an expensive but very nice place.
Bad (but not that bad) things:
1. Restaurants and bars are pricy there, but it’s expected from a place like that.
2. It’s huge. It’s not a bad thing, but if you are traveling with a company you probably want to stay near, otherwise your walk to your friend’s room might take 30 minutes.
Good things:
1. Food is good
2. If you forgot to bring something, there is a good chance you can buy it in the local shops.
3. The whole complex is under a glass roof, so if there is a bad weather during your stay – you will still be able to enjoy your stay without being locked in your room.
4. The place is simply gorgeous!
