We stayed across the street due to our room block being sold out. Self parked for $32.00. Needed to leave and come back in and there is no way to do this without paying another $32.00. I actually needed to go in and out for business three times in one day but limited it to two after paying $64.00 for a couple hours of parking in a lot where there… Read more
We stayed across the street due to our room block being sold out. Self parked for $32.00. Needed to leave and come back in and there is no way to do this without paying another $32.00. I actually needed to go in and out for business three times in one day but limited it to two after paying $64.00 for a couple hours of parking in a lot where there is not a high demand for parking. I asked and was told "sorry". This is very poor business and plain just taking advantage of people. You are in Nashville- not even downtown at that- not Chicago or New York. Absent that experience, there was a decent chance at some point my wife and I would have returned and spent at least a grand there because it is a pretty cool property. You got your extra $32.00 but lost about $950. Congratulations. Read less

The famous Opryland resort lives up to the hype. I took my spouse and parents here for a quick get away. It is absolutely gorgeous. The indoor gardens are huge, rooms are nice and clean, and the boat ride is a lot of fun. Plus you are within walking distance of the Opry Mills Mall with movie theater and Grand Ol’ Opry which is a must, country music fan or not. Downsides: the food inside the resort is very expensive and not that great. The spa prices seemed high to me $125 for a mani/pedi and I do live in Chicago and typically pay much less for that. The location isn’t downtown but parking is easy (Though costly) and it’s a quick drive. Overall it’s 5 star accommodations with 3 star food, but the gardens make it all worth it to me. Read less

Beautiful landscaping throughout and many restaurant choices. Front desk staff were really great. Could use a few more elevator options because can be a wait when the hotel is full during check-in/out times especially. Stairs are open to use without a key to get in and out, but not an option with the luggage. Important to note that the shuttle… Read more
Beautiful landscaping throughout and many restaurant choices. Front desk staff were really great. Could use a few more elevator options because can be a wait when the hotel is full during check-in/out times especially. Stairs are open to use without a key to get in and out, but not an option with the luggage. Important to note that the shuttle did not run before 3pm during the week to downtown and is $20 per adult for all day rides. Our Lyft rides were less than the $20 each way (surge pricing might make it more expensive at other times of day). Read less

The hotel tried to kick my wife and I out to another hotel because they over booked. I was a guest speaker at the aviation convention.

The hotel tried to kick my wife and I out to another hotel because they over booked. I was a guest speaker at the aviation convention. The manager would not work with me at all and with other people checking in around us, it was clear they wanted us to move to another hotel because we were on a government rate. The people paying full price (400+) for a room were not asked to relocate. The managers were insensitive to our plight and the desk manager was completely rude and aggressive. I had to call the event coordinator to get the issue resolved. It appeared that the relocation to another hotel was a underhanded move to allow the full price payers to get rooms until it was made clear I was a guest speaker at a convention event. It was amazing how quickly the management shifted attitudes once Celebrity services worked out getting us a room. Marriot and Gaylord should be ashamed of themselves for the attitude and personality they displayed. The all mighty dollar is worth more then a long term dedicated customer. I was really disappointed in the brand and will not be choosing marriot over Hilton anymore. Read less

One of the most comfortable beds and pillows we have ever used. Very clean. Service personnel were great. Check in could have been more helpful telling me where to park. Everything cost with some discounts for guest. Great food on The premises.
