My wife and I recently attended a marriage conference at the Gaylor for two nights. The hotel is breathtakingly beautiful. The staff was always courteous and helpful, almost everything in the hotel is top notch. However none of this comes cheap. Our two day total, hotel, taxes, parking, and resort fees were just over $400. And we received a significant discount because of the conference. This is an upscale conference hotel. Our group was 2,500 people and we were not the only group. There are tons of people and tons of kids everywhere. Anything you buy there is going to be expensive. But the quality of everything was exceptional. Breakfast for two at the Riverwalk Cafe was $40, but the buffet was fabulous. Several other conference attendees remarked at the costs of their meals but all spoke well of the food. You also do a lot of walking to get anywhere.
The Gaylord is also not a quiet hotel. Its large open spaces and open restaurants make it quit noisy. Add a few thousand people passing through plus the fact that it is in the flight path of DFW airport make this place loud.
The Gaylord is a step up from a traditional Vegas themed mega-hotel, but a step down from say a Disney World Resort.
If you want to experience a great hotel and resort and are prepared to pay for it, go. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful weekend get away, don't. (Unless you are going to Family Life's Weekend to Remember marriage conference, then by all means go!)
