This is a huge nice hotel. Rooms were very clean. You can easily get lost in this hotel.

I don't normally review convention hotels as they are generally all pretty much the same. However, the Gaylord Grapevine stood out in many ways. The check in was so fast, even considering how many arrived at the same time, they are well staffed for conventions. The room was comfortable, and two waters a day in the fridge. I am a fan of any place that provides water!

The food was outstanding! Large group food service is hard to do well. There were some excellent dishes, a fantastic beef brisket, shrimp and sausage with rice, chicken fried chicken with white pepper gravy, pulled pork tacos. Little peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for snacks! Something different every day, and quite good.

Any hotel can do well when conditions are good, but how about when there are ice storms and rolling black outs the week leading up to the Superbowl? We were told at the end of our conference that many of the staff at the Gaylord stayed overnight on cots because they didn't know if they'd be able to get back and forth from their homes.

This shows so much dedication, I really hope they were rewarded for their extra efforts to make sure our conference ran smoothly. Gaylord management if you're listening give those folks a day off with pay or a nice bonus!

I would highly recommend for any business conference or convention.

We stayed here during the ICE exhibition and really enjoyed it. Room was very nice overlooking the atrium. Yes, it was more expensive, but couldn't imagine staying there without enjoying the view. Part of the novelty are the surroundings. Yes, there were times downstairs when it was crowded, but it was Christmas....just like it will be crowded New Years and other holidays like other places would be as well. Staff was very polite and helpful to me and my family. We purchased a package that included the extra charges such as parking and resort fee, but everything is stated specifically when you book the accommodations. The walls do seem to be more thin than other places...we could hear the people talking next door - and the lower rating on cleanliness comes from the tables not being wiped down in the room, kind of gross and one of our towels had what looked like make-up smeared on it. Didn't complain because we were trying to relax and didn't want to get stressed....

We were attending a conference at the Gaylord and we were supposed to get special discounted group rates, but many others in our party went straight to the website and got the same deal or better on their own. We also were not to be charged a daily resort fee - but the hotel would not issue a confirmation with that - and asked us to "keep the faith" that we would not be charged this daily rate when we checked out. Unbelievable! When we called to take these issues with the Group desk, they didn't have an answer for us - and would you believe this - within 30 minutes - ALL the rates at the hotel had been jacked up by over $75 per room! GROUP TRAVEL PLANNERS STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL! Unbelieveable - now that rates are artificially high - some folks think they are getting a good deal. Wait until they get dinged for every call and internet connection - along with being held hostage at overpriced restaurants. Next time - plan your group conference with STARWOOD or HILTON or SHERATON or HYATT or MARRIOTT. They won't jerk you around.

We live about 20 minutes from the Gaylord, but have never visited. We decided to celebrate our 5th year anniversary with a couple nights stay and I must say it was the most relaxing time. From talking with hotel and restaurant staff, it seems like January was a great time to experience the Gaylord. It was virtually empty. Not loud. Not a lot of children (we left our for the weekend with their grandma). First class service everywhere. We had an Atrium King room which was worth the upgrade. Highly recommend for couples. *Especially loved the sushi restaurant, not a great deal of variety, but awesome service and great wine selection, plus the waitress even gave us an incredible dessert on the house.*

The hotel & landscaping were gorgeous, but EVERYTHING there was way overpriced. We travel quite a bit, & always stay in four or five star hotels. This, however, was not as nice as most, but twice as expensive. The staff was extremely courteous & helpful though. I don't think we will be back.
