This was our first time at Opryland. The checkin was fast, friendly, and a breeze! Our room was clean, beautiful, and roomy. We reserved an atrium view with the balcony.

Our room overlooked the cascade atrium with views of the waterfalls. It was beautiful! I highly recommend an atrium view room. The resort itself is located within walking distance to both the Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills Mall. The resort is absolutely beautiful with the different atriums filled with beautiful plants, waterfalls, palm trees, rivers! There’s a lot of different restaurants and shopping to enjoy. Everywhere we dined was delicious. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We also did the carriage rides, which was a fun time! The boat ride is also nice! There’s so much to see and do! It is a beautiful place to stay! Read less

At the end of March I traveled to Gaylord Opryland with my 2 and 4 year old daughters. The experience was great. The facility had everything we needed from diverse dinner options and an amazing water park, but the distance to the local mall was AMAZING. So to ensure my review is unbias (as I genuinely live this property), I will list both pros and cons of the visit: Pros: Since my mom accompanied us on this trip, I paid for the room that afforded us a balcony to look inside the property. It was an amazing view for people watching and determining when to get in line for certain restaurant options :) The Soundwaves water park! I can’t even articulate how great that place is. Had food, fun, and adult beverages:) The property had everything you need without leaving the property. Gift shops, food, bars, water attraction, kids activities, etc. Many off property restaurants deliver if you can’t find your favorites on property. Cons - though few, there was one: We purchased a Soundwaves package and one the first day, we had to wait a while for clean towels to arrive. When they did, it was fabulous- but still a bit of an inconvenience. However, based on labor shortages- for there to only be this one con… I think they are doing a good job. Before going I read mixed reviews and I was a bit anxious to see how my experience would be. However, I must say, I left looking forward to a future. Thanks Gaylord Opryland! Read less

Terrible - no pool bar open during week. No towels by pool. Good in banquet dining was sub par for banquet dining food, which we all know has low standards to begin with. No staff for help. Poorly managed. Service is hard to find throughout the resort. Definitely do not recommend holding large group event at this hotel. Nothing to do… Read more

Poorly managed. Service is hard to find throughout the resort. Definitely do not recommend holding large group event at this hotel. Nothing to do during the day. To far from downtown to easily benefit from being in Nashville. Everything is a long walk of confusing hallways. Read less

Stayed a night with friends. Staff at the check in was helpful but overall it was very crowded. It felt like a casino in Vegas. Hotel grounds are lush but very confusing. With the number of rooms everything felt crowded and rush. Zero benefits for Marriott Titanium member. Was easy to walk to Opry. Way too far to downtown.

This resort - more commonly known to locals as the Opryland Hotel - has been a staple of Nashville for decades now and for good reason. The interior is genuinely impressive. It's a massive resort, sprawling with hundreds of rooms, a convention center, dozens of shops and restaurants, beautiful settings, and within walking distance of the Opry Mills mall (although I'd still recommend driving). However, I always walk away feeling so underwhelmed. The rooms, while they have been renovated, are still only so-so and don't feel luxury at all. Wifi can be very spotty. The resort is a beauty but also so difficult to navigate. You feel like you need a GPS just to move from one location to another. If you have a conference here, make plenty of a time allowance between leaving your room and walking to the convention portion of the facility, because it's quite the journey. If you have a family visiting Nashville for the first time or are here for a conference, obviously it's fine. If you're coming to Nashville for any other reason, though, there are plenty of other options that are more affordable and easier to navigate. Read less
