LIke a small city under one roof, gators and all. Never did quite figure out the path coming from Disney World, but going into it was a piece of cake.

Weren't sure about staying at the Gaylord Palms after reading some of the reviews but went there any way. Got in really late and they were very accomidating to that. After a long plane ride we went to get some food, for two sandwiches and pops it cost us over $25 and the sandwiches really weren't that good. The next day we had to take a shuttle to the airport to get out rental car, usualy shuttle rides to the airport are free but not at the Gaylord (however the shuttle to Disney was free).
There was a cockroach in the elevator which did freak me out. the computer in the room was ridiculously slow.
Beautiful ponds and swimming pools, fun to walk around and just look.
Went to the restaurant on the boat late after going to disney. Before sitting we asked if it was too late and the waitress said it wasn't so we sat and ordered drinks. The waitress then left us for almost twnety minutes before coming back and rudly telling us we had to order. We ordered to go, when we got the bill they had added the tip, although it was only two people and the menu says tips will only be added for groups over 8. Waitress was pretty rude, food was under cooked and not very tasty for the ridiculous price.
The waitress however was theonly rude employee we meet, the guy driving the Disney shuttle was so nice and entertaining, and the valet guys were hilarious.

Over all it is a very pretty resort (don't walk around after midnight they don't clean after that) but the ridiculous charges, cockroachs, and that one waitress on the boat weren't what I would expect from a resort like this.

I was there 2 nights for a conference, but I arrived late and left early so didn't spend much time in the room or the hotel itself. Conference facilities were excellent. Everything met expectations - clean, comfortable, restful.

When we checked in at the front desk, the clerk upgraded our room to a king suite but it was only a regular room with a king bed. Housekeeping was very basic at best, no vacuuming and the shower has not been cleaned during our three night stay. I find the $199 per night (group rate) is expensive, especially when the hotel has an advertized weekend rate much lower than that. The resort fee of $15 per night is too much, consider the value of the newspaper, the battle of water and the usage of the internet which was useless because it is very slow and freeze up all the time. The food at the conference was also very basic and the dinners were plain bad. I will not return and I would not recommend to anybody to stay at this resort.

We did an event at the hotel and the management was so terrible they acted like who cares what you think, if you dont like it you know where you can take your business. We thought that doing business with a hotel like the Gaylord would insure a classy expierence but boy were we mistaken. Farzanah Rehmatwala, the Executive Sales Manager, was rude, aggressive, manipulative and down right argumentiative at every turn. I understand that some people have an accasional bad day but every single time we called her she was this way over a week. SAVE YOUR MONEY as MONEY DOESNT BUY CLASS AT THIS HOTEL. There are many other great 4 star hotels in Orlando,c hoose one who wants your business.
