"Such a disappointment"
I am writing this review from my room, as I am still stuck here for another day. This hotel is such a missed opportunity! Having stayed at the Gaylord in Nashville and given the expense, this one is a huge disappointment. First, after circling the self-parking for 10 minutes and not finding a single spot, we were forced to use the valet (which I hate having to do) for $39/day. Apparently the entire lower level of the garage was closed off to guests and my guess is that they are using it for valet because 2 weeks after the last snow storm they have been too lazy or cheap to clear out the outside lots. What a scam! We then go to check-in and just as we make it to the front their entire system crashes. We had to wait for almost an hour, sitting on the floor, until they came back up. Aside from the weak "sorry for the inconvenience" all we were told is that we were lucky as earlier it had crashed for 2 hours! We then go into the rooms which are okay except for the abundant mold growing in the bathroom. Gross! Apparently the high rates they charge are not enough to afford some mold and mildew remover. What is worse, the shower head is old and defective, spraying water everywhere and causing the floors to flood. In the morning, since it was below zero degrees outside, I made it to the Pienza restaurant, the only restaurant onsite which serves real breakfast. However, not only do they ONLY have the $24 buffet (no menus) but the hostesses are incredibly rude. When I arrived the restaurant was almost completely empty, so when the hostess tried to wedge me in a tiny 2 people table surrounded by the only other 3 tables taken, I asked if I could sit elsewhere so I could use my laptop. She responded that the only table she could sit me by myself was that tiny table. Obviously, I left. For the next 2 hours I sat on my balcony overlooking the restaurant and it NEVER got more than 1/3 full. Now, I am writing this review from my IPad using my cellular data because their free WIFI is ridiculously slow, when it actually works. Oh, and did I mention the fun of being stuck outside in windy 0 degree weather for 1/2 hour because there was a fire in one of the restaurants' In sum, if I ever have to come to this area again, there is no way I am staying at this hotel: save your money and stay at any of the hotels across the street.
"Kyle at Check-in"
On the night before my conference ended, I went down to the check-in desk to ask a couple of questions about check out the next day. My colleague and I were sharing a suite. She had needed some laundry done. However, she had waited too late in the day to arrange it. Kyle, at the desk, answered my questions efficiently and with true friendliness. However, he went out of his way to find a solution for my colleague's laundry problem. He made several calls to services, spoke with his supervisor regarding a solution and eventually advised us that he had arranged that we would be able to take the laundry to another Marriott property across the street, Residence Inn and use their guests' laundry facilities. It would have been easy to tell us that it was too late to find a solution. Thank you Kyle for giving excellent Customer service. The Gaylord is a high priced property and you expect customer service, and the Gaylord was on point my entire stay. However, Kyle went beyond expectations. As a "southern girl", he made me and my colleague feel very welcomed, warm and cozy!
"Fancy Convention Center but isolated."
Went here for a concention. As a convention space and hotel it was not bad at all, but where it is in relation to the roads it was pretty isolated and hard to get into/out of. Lots of places to eat and do some shopping around it, though.
"Nothing to complain about - great stay"
I recently attended a convention at Gaylord and decided to stay on-site for the convenience of travel. I really can't complain. It was a beautiful room, nothing too out-of-this-world. Decent-sized bathrooms and nice glass-door shower. Upon checking in, they checked and upgraded me to a better view without me asking, which was nice. The food on-site is decent, a little pricey, as were the rooms. But you're paying for convenience and the experience here. I opted not to park on-site (parked at St. George instead) which saved me a bit in parking fees. Also, I was expecting to pay extra for in-room wi-fi. It ended up being included and was fast enough for some heavy emailing and internet use. Overall, had a great time.
"Awesome Hotel &Facilities "
I travel for work from time to time and I try to stay at relatively decent to nicely appointed hotels. But my recent business trip to the Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center has practically blown away all prior hotels! My room was immaculate and we'll appointed and my balcony view was breath taking. The staff were exceptionally nice and accomodating. They went out of their way to assist me in anyway they could. In short, I will be back with my family to take advantage of all the surrounding offerings that are adjacent to this excellent hotel and conference center.
