Recently at the resort for a convention.
Although my room was quite nice, it only had a shower and I prefer a tub.
All members of the staff throughout the resort were very friendly and helpful with the exception of one female at the Concierge Desk who I found to be rather rude.
The food we received during our stay at the convention was quite good and very plentiful and most people in our group loved the mushroom soup--it was outstanding!
The biggest problem I encountered is there were no accommodations for people with disabilities. I have severe asthma and since it was extremely difficult to walk around the facility, I struggled to get from one event to another on Friday evening and again on Saturday morning and was unable to attend any of the functions on our agenda for Saturday evening including our group photo. Had there been electric buggies available, I could have participated in what ended up to be the best meal and the best time our group had. For this reason, I would not recommend or return to the Gaylord.
