Nashville's premier hotel, the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, offers guests all the excitement and energy of Music City under one spectacular roof. Beneath our climate-controlled signature glass atriums and nestled in a bend of the meandering Cumberland River is an extraordinary selection of dining, shopping and recreation options that create the perfect setting for a complete getaway.
We stayed there over the New Year's Weekend, too. It was our first time there and we just showed up there on New Year's Eve without reservations and were able to get a room. We found it extremely beautiful. The room was very nice and clean. Though the walls could use a little sound proofing. We had a great time there and we will definately be back. It was a little on the expensive side, but it was spectacular.
We visited this hotel shortly before the flooding. I have been here before. I would never stay here due to the mutiple complaints shown here and elsewhere, but I must say it's a wonderful 3 or 4 hour destination. Yes, you pay $26 to valet park, but if you do not spend the night AND you eat at one of their hotels, the valet parking is free! We used that to enjoy their lovely Italian restaurant. It was well worth it. And, while the revolving bar was a little pricey, I looked at it as being able to escape reality for a few hours, and relaxed amongst the beautiful flowers.I am looking forward to them cleaning up the flood mess and reopening.
WE were staying at Operland Hotel last weekend, just in time for all the floods. Staff came to our room and told us to get on a bus, as the hotel was losing power. (it was not, the Cumberland river was flooding) We arrived at a local high school, with no dinner. No one came to tell us what was happining. Not handled well at all! Don't ever stay at Opryland hotel, way over priced, they ever charge you for parking, and the food - way over priced and tasteless.
The grounds and gardens are beautiful, but inside is very humid and warm and my allergies were horrible the entire time I was there. The food was not impressive and very expensive. I sent my clothes to the hotel to save the cost of checking a bag and found out the hotel charges a handling fee of $13.11 per package. This was not mentioned when I called to check if they accepted packages. The room was supposed to have a refrigerator, but did not have one. I would normally say I was nickled and dimed, but in this case it was more like tens and twenties. VERY expensive and no choice of soda pop. You either drink coke or go somewhere else. No PEPSI on the premises. I will never ever stay at a Gaylord property again!!!!!!!
The steak place is good but the others are average at best and overpriced if you like $12 for grilled cheese sandwich. The hotel is pretty with the atriums but way overpriced. Don't forget the mandatory $15 a day resort fee that is added to your room rate. You pay for every little thing like an average of $2.50 to print your boarding pass. Visit it for the exotic atriums but do not eat or stay there.
