I was at the Gaylord for a conference. The hotel and the conference facilities are amazing. I got lucky with my room, which was on the 9th floor with an outdoor balcony overlooking the lake. I made full use of the fitness centre, pools, restaurant and bars; I was not disappointed at all. I felt welcomed and comfortable during my stay. (Not sure about the wifi - it was free for us because of the conference)
But why did I give only 4 stars? The staff. The main hotel staff were fabulous, extremely helpful. However there was a small minority who overstepped the mark. A few of the catering staff appeared to be over anxious and unapologetic at all times. Whisking a way unfinished plates of food without asking if we were finished. I had a serving plate taken away when I was in the process of getting food from it. On one occasion a bar staff member made a comment about how we must earn a lot to be staying at the hotel! Then there was the vacuuming the hallway outside the rooms at 7am; who does that?
Also, beware of the transport staff at the front. We were quoted a ridiculous price for a taxi to Dallas and Forth Worth. When we asked the concierge, he ordered a taxi at half that price.
