“Family and Convention Spot”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Was here for a work convention. The hotel is beautiful and extremely large. It was good for the convention since you didn't have to go outside in the heat to do anything. The hotel is like a mini city with stores and restaurants inside. Bring your walking shoes to get around. All the restaurants had great food and options for every budget. This is also a great place to bring a family as kids love the indoor space (reminds me of disney) and they have many activities built around children.

I attended a conference last week held at the Convention within the Gaylord Texan. In a word BIG, I guess Texas lives up to its' name.

Multiple restauarants with quality food, but expensive !!. Since you cannot walk to anything close, you have to taxi or wait for the Grapevine Tourist bus that starts at 3pm till 10pm weekdays for $5 daypass. The bus cvomes every hour after that

The outdoor pool is excellent expecailly with the wwarm weather we had. The water park was closed I guerss for the season. The rooms are spacious and kept clean and wiht the resort fee $15, you 2 bottle of water, Internet and local calls for free.

So it is a good place to attend a conference but not for personal downtime. It is too isolated for me from anywhere of interest, unless you rent a car or take a Taxi. The is no hard liquor available within this county, only beer and wine can be sold. The food and drinks are expensive at the Hotel , go figure.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the inside with an Atrium view, these rooms have a small balcony. The outside r...

I've stayed at a few of the Gaylord hotels. This one in Dallas was very good. Clean room, very accommodating staff. The only problem is being in Dallas, Texas there weren't many selections as far as for eating when you're a vegetarian, plus wheat and dairy free. Texas loves their meat. It's nice to have everything at one place but after a day or two you don't get much selection and I miss being outside. They do have a trail around the grounds but got half way on a walk and it started to rain. Of course that's no fault of the hotel!

I have been to the Gaylord on numerous occasions - parties, Christmas Ice Displays and more, but after my last visit for a bachelorette party, it became apparent it's time for some tweaking. The decor in the suite where we stayed overnight was dated and the colors drab. The linens were not what I would have expected at this price point and the art was mundane. We ate at the Mexican restaurant in the main area close to the meandering indoor creek. The vibe was nice, but the food was very marginal. I had fish tacos and the fish was almost nonexistent. There was barely any on the taco and what was there was overcooked and hard to the point it made me feel it had been reheated from a day previous. Not fresh. To be fair, it was split 50/50 among the ladies as to the whole experience. The Gaylord is a real asset to Grapevine. Time to get it up to par.

Room Tip: This a great place to visit when family is in town. At holiday time the ice displays are awesome.

I live in Dallas and visited the Gaylord in preparation for relatives visiting over Thanksgiving. Everything about the property is nice. Parking is validated but expensive if you don't get validated. The restaurants and bars all have a unique feel and there are plenty to chose from. Don't miss the Glass Cactus for live music and a huge dance floor.

Stayed at the Gaylord Texan whist my husband attended a conference. The decor in the atrium was amazing, but rooms were disappointing. The lighting was extremely dim, particularly in the bathroom. Beds were firm but the wooden frames were so dangerous for my 17 month old as she kept banging in to the posts. I ended up with bruises trying to save her from all the hard corners. The sound proofing was terrible. I could hear next door's conversation! The buffet at River Cantina on Saturdays is extremely disappointing and not worth the money. On the Sunday we ate at the same buffet, as there was more variety. Chef told me that they didn't do crispy tortillas even though we saw them at the omelette counter. We left our camcorder in a lobby by mistake and this ended up being stolen. The initial response from hotel staff was slow, and then picked up seeing as we were so upset. We lost all our baby's pictures and videos. The hotel were reluctant to put out a board with our details,offering a reward, or request to message on a tannoy system that we had 'lost' our camcorder. In all a devastating and disappointing trip. Only saving grace was the bell boy staff- extremely friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good sound proofing if you don't want to hear your neighbors or them hear yo...

The Gaylord is the second best hotel I have ever stayed at (behind the Moana in Hawaii). They have something for everyone to enjoy there. A water park for the kids a sports bar and spa for the guys and girls, and let's not forget about the spectacular views in the balconies and elevators overlooking the atrium. They just need to have one more thing. Something to accommodate me aa 16 year old teenager like me a little better. Don't get me wrong the water park is great, but something strictly for teens like a club or just place to hangout and socialize would top it off for my and probably most teenagers experience. All in all though a great hotel.
