“Gaylord Properties are so Pretentious”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

I stay at Gaylord Properties all the time for work (DC,Florida,Nashville, TX). They are overprices traps that feed on the fact that most people do not have a choice to be there. The rooms are overprice, but the food and Drink prices are scandalous. Nashville Fish and Chips $21 and Burger $18. This is crazy! Management is taking advantage of trapped customers. When I see that Gaylord is on my travel plans I do not look forward to the event.

I have stayed here twice, both times for conventions. This is a great venue for that. I liked the fact that this place is so big that you don't run into someone you have to talk to just because you step outside your door into the lobby. It's big enough to get lost in. Lovely grounds. Restaurants great with wonderful service but are pricey. Nothing to do in the local area without a car. Very good workout room that was too small for the size of the hotel but that's not a show stopper. I didn't bring kids here and I wouldn't bring little ones because there isn't much for them to do. A fascinating, gorgeous place to stay for a convention or conference but not for family time.

Attended a conference at the Gaylord, it is a fabulous 'stay cation'! There is so much to see and do inside you hardly notice you've not left the building for several days. Tennessee can be very hot, but not inside the Gaylord. The gardens, river boat ride, walking paths, and little shops are all fun! Don't forget there are 3 pools to enjoy. Even if you aren't staying there you MUST visit and enjoy the inside gardens. They are worth the visit.

I have never been to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN, but it is one place I recommend you to visit. It is absolutely unbelievable!!! We stayed there from July 27-31. I can write for days on the splendor of this resort, but you must go there and see it first hand! Waterfalls, aqua fountain show(s), a gondola ride (with history) through the river running through the hotel. A little pricey, but well worth it. It is a must see resort. Also, take the General Jackson riverboat dinner and show cruise!

Hotel is beautiful. Hostess and host-older gentleman-were lovely at the cascades restaurant. Had lunch and dinner there. Food is very good. Rooms are clean-as well as the hotel. Problem? Scheduled blackouts!! Yes...pay a few hundred to go away to a resort that has blackouts? Listen-I get going green and such but scale down in other ways. The resort is massive and I want to love it but not with scheduled blackouts. Also much confusion with our bill-make sure you check it. We had a tough time with some of the front desk staff getting answers.

I have had numerous business meetings at this property. Recently on a family vacation we decided to stop for a night with our boys. It was a great time. They were truly in awe over the beauty of the hotel. It is a magical place for kids to explore. They loved the boat ride and the pools were amazing. The restaurants do not disappoint! I was impressed with a front desk clerk named Jen. She accidentally put us in a room that was occupied. When I went down to exchange the keys and let her know what happened , she quickly got us intp a new room. When we got up to the new room, She called to tell me that she had given me a $50.00 credit on our bill to ease our inconvenience. Now that is what I call service. We will absolutley go back. Great place to treat the family!

I stayed 3 nights for a convention. The rooms are clean neat and modern. The staff is friendly. An error at check-in (room keys didn't work) but resolved. The atriums are a site to see on their own. Several small shops and 8 to 12 places to eat the food is okay but bring your wallet! Room service is pricey too.

Free wireless internet worked well. Parking is $18 for self parking and $26 for valet. If you don't need to leave the resort take a cab from the airport. It is roughly a 10 minute ride.

If you have difficulty getting around make sure your reservation is noted so you can be close to the convention center or exit as necessary. This place is huge and I used a map to get around the first day.

If you are a smoker request a room near an approved smoking area as you can't smoke in the room and the rooms with balconies face the atrium, not the outdoors.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty getting around make sure your reservation is noted so you can be close to the...
