We stayed at the hotel for a convention, and took advantage of their Golf Package.
Our good luck found us in a suite, facing the atrium. The room was enormous, with living and meeting/dining area, plus double balconies. It was “Over the Top” for a weekend stay! The young women in the Celebrity Guest Services were extremely helpful in taking care of the details of our package, which included golf at the Dallas Cowboys Golf Course. We dined the Old Hickory House Steakhouse (food was excellent), Texas Station (with the largest HD screen we’ve seen yet) and the Riverwalk Café (right along with the koi fish swimming in the river next to it!) Yes, all were pricey, but considering the location within the resort, they were all dining experiences we enjoyed. The atrium is impressive, as you can see from the pictures. Coming from the land of the Mall of America, I will admit.. the Gaylord’s atrium is really off-the scale! There is a good assortment of shopping sites within the resort, and the convention area was convenient, without extensive walking as with many other hotels that cater to conventions. The fitness center is large with a good selection of equipment – a little warm, though, when it was busy. The outdoor pool is small, but has an abundance of chairs and loungers.
We liked the close proximity to DFW, less than 15 minutes via shuttle. The hotel staff were all Texas charmers—warm, gracious and helpful. The resort has 1511 rooms (everyone room was taken, sans one, the last night of our visit), but it never seemed "crowded". The Gaylord Texan is a great example of why we love to visit Texas!
