Opryland Hotel Indoor Garden and Collections
Relax among the serene beauty of three nationally acclaimed indoor gardens: The Conservatory, The Cascades, and The Delta. The Conservatory covers two acres and is devoted solely to tropical plants. The Cascades also covers two acres and features waterfalls cascading into a 12,500 square-foot indoor lake. The Delta covers 4.5 acres and features restaurants, shops and a fountain that sends out jets of water 85 feet into the air. A breathtaking river runs through it with passenger-carrying boats. Admission: Free. Lobby areas are open to the public.
I carried a friend from out of town to see the gardens and we really enjoyed our visit. We started off in the lobby and worked our way around from there. My friend's daughter (7) was amazed at all the different flowers and statues. We appreciated the views, and caught ourselves coming at some things from different angles just to appreciate them better. The people were wonderful and friendly, it was a little crowded, but everything seemed to flow quite well. The waterfalls, fountains, and streams made for a very relaxing tour. We did take the boat ride and thouroughly enjoyed the narrated trip, learned a few things too. There is a self-parking fee of $18, but considering the amount of things we saw and did while there, it was well worth it.
It is a very beautiful place. However, we could have stayed at another hotel for half the cost and could have toured the gardens. They charge astronomical fees for everything..parking is $18.00 if you self park. We had to drag all our luggage...3 adults 2 children from a far away parking lot because the line to unload was over 2 hours wait. Upon check out I wanted to use one of their carts to bring our luggage down, but no only bellman can use them.. then we would have had more expense. We carried them all down ourselves...We spent around $500 there and had no help with anything.
Never again.. The gardens are wonderful, but everything in there is so costly.. Breakfast was $20/adult.. it was nice but not that nice... It was not that much more than the nice hotels have included with the room... the $15 resort fee was uncalled for.. to top it off we could not even enter the self park area as it was full and parked away in a lot about 2 blocks away...but still had to pay it...I guess they have to pay the costs of the flood somehow!!!!!!!!
We did not stay at the hotel, but we toured all the gardens and areas. It was a great thing to go do when we had a rainy day, since it is all indoors. I tried to talk my husband into switching hotels for one night because this would have been an awesome place to stay the night, but we pretty much saw it all in about two hours.
Cleanliness of hotel was disappointing from last stay. Finger prints on
doors, patio glass, bathroom corners, carpet frayed & stained, stain on
bed cover, etc. Called for luggage assistance twice and no one ever showed up. Spa is nice, but not fantastic giving consideration to size of
hotel. Only whirlpool is outside & that's quite a walk from spa. Valet parking was $25. per day which is on top of resort fee plus $214. rm
rate. Thought the plants did not appear as well cared for as last visit
and this was most likely my last stay. A bit disappointing from the
hotel service that made Nashville's Opryland Hotel a landmark.
Over price rooms and fees for everything including the madatory resort fee of $15 a day. The restaurants are average and expensive. Was there for a convention but would not stay there. Visit for the atriums but stay at a nice Courtyard down the street and go downtown for good BBQ
I'm here on business with the Loyal Order of the Moose. We had rooms comped for us for our meetings because the Moose has booked the hotel as well as a number of others in the area for our Moose International Convention July 2- 6, 2010. I think our members will be awed at this place however it may be difficult to get around as there are walkways in every direction - all kinds of atriums, flora, boat ride, stores, restaurants, (sports bar, FUSE, Finley's Irish Bar to name a few). They have scooter rentals which will definitely be doing a great business when the Moose converge on Nashville. Look out.... the Moose are coming!
We stood in line 1 hour to check in, never had to do that even in Vagas! The elevators didn't work most of the time & we couldn't find the stair wells. The food servers in the lobby were very rude & not helpful at all. our room keys didn't work twice & had to fight our way back down to the lobby. Granted it is beautiful but it should be with all the added expenses & cost of the ro0m. The Italian restaurant had wonderful food & the service was great. Best part of our stay. The General Jackson was fanfastic show & very good food! Will not be back to the Opryland Hotel!!
Although a beautiful property, this place WILL rob you blind. During my extensive travels, I've seen outrageous food prices in hotels... but this place blows everything else I've ever seen out of the water. The food prices are ASTRONOMICAL! Plus, you'll pay an extra $15/day as a "resort" fee.... Plus, be prepared to pay $18-25 extra per day for parking (with NO in/out privileges!).
If you stay here, you will feel like you've been robbed at gunpoint, I guarantee it. And to make matters worse, the hotel has banned any type of food delivery to their property. Forget about calling Dominos and ordering a pizza. I did... and the Dominos folks told me they (and all restaurants like them) were prohibited from making any type of deliveries to any part of this hotel.
Opryland is so big, you can't really walk anywhere else for food (except to a nearby mall... but that's still quite a hike). They have you captive. Plus, if you decide to hop in the car and drive to a restaurant, they'll charge you another $18-25 to park when you get back (remember, no in/our privileges with their parking).
I cannot emphasize enough how greedy these people are. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!
I loved all the glamour and lights at the hotel. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching whatever.
But we were disappointed in the hidden fees the 15 dollar a day extra charege the $20 parking fee. What is up with that.? Tell me this on the phone instead be ready to pay $40 extra than the rate they promised.
