My wife and I stayed at the Gaylord Opryland from January 6 through January 10, 2009, and we were amazed. There can be no doubt. This hotel is stunning, and it is huge! According to one of the concierge staff, the Gaylord Opryland is the largest non-casino hotel in the world, and I believe it. It is also very well maintained. It seems to be the home of superlatives. The three atria (which cover a total of 8 acres) are stunning. The rooms are beautiful, and housekeeping never misses a beat. It is however very, very expensive. We stayed at the Gaylord Opryland hotel while attending a conference there, so we got the conference rate, which wasn't bad, considering the immensity and beauty of the facility, but other costs were high - very high. Valet parking is $25 per day, but self-parking is even $18 per day, and don't expect the valets to be polite (or even civil) if you choose self-parking, as we did. They won't even let you unload your luggage in a covered portico. If you self-park, you must unload your luggage beyond the portico - even if it is POURING rain, and the portico is otherwise empty. And, good luck if you want to use a luggage cart, and transport your own luggage. They can be touched only by the porters. Likewise, don't even look for an economical meal. A dinner for two can easily exceed $100 in almost any of the Gaylord Opryland's seven restaurants. For example, one day my wife and I had enjoyed a substantial lunch (at one of the restaurants in the nearby shopping mall), and we wanted only a light supper. We went to the Restaurante Volare. She had a cup of soup. I had a small salad. We both had water, but I had a cup of coffee with the dessert we shared. The bill was still well over $30. Finally, my thanks to the check-in agent named Jackie (or Jamie) from Victoria, Texas. Following the less than warm greeting we initially received from the valets and porters, she was a welcomed change that soothed one very frustrated customer.
