Wow! We had an upgrade provided by awesome staff for a inner room with balcony in the Cascade section of hotel. The room faced 2 waterfalls! We enjoyed a thanksgiving feast just below our room - can’t remember the name of restaurant sorry- After dinner we enjoyed the river walk n the Delta section given rise to the French quarter in New Orleans - the black iron detailed railings- DO NOT miss sound waves- indoor upscale water park. We turned into energetic adults - any grown folk stress disappeared- Had a freaking blast! Not crowded at 7 pm thanksgiving night. No lines no crowds - haven’t been on a tube water slides in over a decade - usually sitting poolside yelling at my kids to behave - but the adult pool upstairs was cold- other water was warm and lazy river very cool- we were kids again! - yeah US! Road trip success- in our room we listened to the waterfall lulled to sleep- oh oh oh! The heated outdoor hot tub is by the indoor pool near fitness center - these weary parenting bones so so needed this break luxury style - just damn necessary- just arrive you’re greeted by concierge- go as a couple or family even alone it’s all good. Use valet, if disabled you can valet fir same price as self park - Went downtown to hear live music and take in Nashville nightlife flavor, there’s ice rink, walk to the Opry! There’s even a radio country station, try to close your mouth when your jaw drops in the botanical gardens- your could keep going but experience this place for yourself - YOU will shake your head All under one roof with adjoining properties - so many restaurants, coffee and deserts spots, gift shops with beyond ample seasonal merchandise. The holidays are such a treat- festive - lights action Go! Read less

We attended the Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Dinner Show on Friday, 11/26/21. An excellent, high-quality meal and the ORB were awesome as always.

We attended the Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Dinner Show on Friday, 11/26/21. An excellent, high-quality meal and the ORB were awesome as always. Our concern is the distance from the entrance to the Hotel to the performance location. For people with a walking disability, it is a long way. And getting to the taxi/Uber pickup after the show is a long way, and there is no signage to assist. Three employees told us to go to three different locations until we finally found it at the Cascade lobby. Please post signs to direct people to the transportation pickup area! Read less

Valet parking full at 3pm. Would not let you drop you bags so you can get to your room. And if you did drop your bags it’s at your own risk. Had to park 10min away and Carry my bags to front desk. Then no help at front desk. This is what happens when you get to big no customer service. And when a hotel staff sees you struggling with your bags “… Read more
Valet parking full at 3pm. Would not let you drop you bags so you can get to your room. And if you did drop your bags it’s at your own risk. Had to park 10min away and Carry my bags to front desk. Then no help at front desk. This is what happens when you get to big no customer service. And when a hotel staff sees you struggling with your bags “ not once but two times” and does not help. Even if you are rude to them, because you received zero help from hotel staff so far. I guess I should have left the fist time no help was offered by there valet service. When you are the First point of contact and you treat customers that way , that is unexceptionable. They should really re-think how there valet system works. No organization and full at 3:00pm and no way to get you bags to your room. Read less

Our family of 5 (3 kids) visited the week of Thanksgiving. The highlights were: beautiful Christmas decorations, river boat ride, outdoor ice village and activities (we did tubing and bumper cars), the Soundwaves water park and arcade, a beautiful narrated nativity, very clean and comfortable room and housekeeping service. The lowlights were: long lines for restaurants/food service, very little signage to navigate the massive hotel (I would even recommend having a staff member at key points to direct people). The food made it a little stressful for us to plan as only 1 place takes reservations. Overall, it was a really nice week for the kids to relax and have fun. Recommendations: for families request Delta section and upgrade to atrium view. Read less

Half the restaurants were closed. Good luck getting something to eat if you didn’t have reservation or mind waiting in line for 2 hours. Understaffed … if your going to charge a premium make sure you you can purchase what you want. I am okay paying for this they just were not to be had food, water, beer,etc. once you did get food it was a solid C… Read more
Half the restaurants were closed. Good luck getting something to eat if you didn’t have reservation or mind waiting in line for 2 hours. Understaffed … if your going to charge a premium make sure you you can purchase what you want. I am okay paying for this they just were not to be had food, water, beer,etc. once you did get food it was a solid C on a grading scale. My kids were so excited for SoundWaves and the main attraction Surfing was closed. No lounge chair on regular and good luck getting one. If you like to wait in lines this place is you Jam! Save your money and go somewhere else ! Total Bust! Read less
