Editor’s Review of Gaylord Opryland Resort

Editor’s Rating 4/5 Is Opryland a resort or an attraction? The answer is yes. With more than 2,800 guest rooms and three enormous garden atriums under nine acres of glass roofs, the Gaylord Opryland Resort is definitely one of Nashville's most popular sights -- to the tune of two million people each year. Originally opened in 1977 as a fancy hotel built to resemble an old Southern mansion, Opryland has undergone a series of major expansions, each time adding a new atrium with more guest rooms. The sprawling resort is now the largest non-casino hotel in the continental U.S. and claims a whopping ten percent of the total number of hotel rooms in Nashville.

The resort made headlines in May of 2010, when record rainfall caused the adjacent
... more Cumberland River to flood, leaving part of the building under 10 feet of water. Opryland closed for six months for repairs. Clean up crews pumped 71,280,000 gallons of water out of the resort in three days. When the doors re-opened just before the start of the holiday season later that same year, Opryland had a whole new look, including a new lobby, hundreds of renovated guest rooms, and several new restaurants, bars, and nightspots.

In addition to the Magnolia area (the original area of the hotel), Opryland offers three spectacular atrium sections, each with a variety of shops, bars, and restaurants. The centerpiece of the Cascades atrium, just off the lobby, is a thundering three-plus-story twin waterfall surrounded by some 8,000 tropical plants. Adjoining the Cascades area is the Garden Conservatory, designed to resemble a Victorian-style garden. Here, lovely narrow paths meander around garden beds that show off more than 10,000 tropical plants (including 60-foot-tall palm and banana trees). The newest of the resort's three atriums is the Delta, with its somewhat spicy New Orleans/French Quarter ambiance, complete with a river ambling through it and a central island with a variety of interesting shops. less

Opryland has a dizzying total of 2,881 guest rooms. The traditional guest rooms are very similar, except for one distinction -- those with garden-atrium views look out over one of the three atriums and are the most popular. Most of the rooms with atrium views feature small, furnished balconies that afford expansive views of Opryland's great indoors, although those on the lower floors pretty much look right into the gardens.

Although all three atriums are truly splendid, the Delta is perhaps the most convenient for families because it contains the most family-friendly eateries, including a burger place Stax, a Paisano's Pizzeria, and a Haagen-Dazs. The Sunny G -- a great kids' shop selling t-shirts, unusual toys, educational ... more books, and various souvenirs -- is located on the island in the center of the Delta atrium. The Delta is also home to the flat boat ride, Opryland's resident live ducks, and the nightly fountain shows, and it's also the location of the resort's family theme parties. However, if being near one of the pools is important, you'll want a room in the Cascades atrium or the Magnolia section of the hotel.

All Opryland's guestrooms include refrigerators, high-speed wireless internet, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, an in-room safe, cable TV, coffee makers, and bottled water. Cribs are supplied free upon request.

Opryland's 174 suites range from 400-square-feet to 4,800-square-feet and include living rooms and optional connecting bedrooms. Five are categorized as presidential suites, the largest of which has a formal dining room, a catering kitchen, a den, and five bathrooms! less

The staff at this resort don't care about their guests, and aren't sorry about it either. My family's reservations were all wrong despite being made months in advance. We didn't get the upgrades that we paid for, didn't get the ... more
