How to Get There
Great location. Staff was incredibly helpful. Room was extremely clean and comfortable. Great views of the atrium area as well as the harbor. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I would highly recommend.
Two Marriott properties in three month and two strikes. The Gaylord was a huge disappointment. The good - comfortable rooms and great service in the lobby bar. The food over all was horrible. The room service menu is anemic. The worst is the food served at our business meeting. Except for a few good salads most of the food lacked taste and was poorly executed. The staff was mixed. Finally, lock up everything in your room. I had one item stolen from my briefcase
I stayed here for a couple of days as part of a sales meeting - there is one thing that you would say about this place - it is MASSIVE. I have stayed in a few hotels in my time but i am not sure i have ever been in something this MASSIVE. It is kind of super sized and as a result every part of it feels like it is built to hold thousands of people. YOu go to the bar, and realize it could accomodate 1000 people easily, you go to the conference room and realize there are 2000 people in it, you go to the lobby and there could be 1000 people milling around. It is almost inconceivably massive.
So thats good - if you need a conference facility for 2000 people or more, then go here. It like a small town, you dont need to go outside, you can live in this place, it is very like Vegas but without the gambling. so its kind of hollow and empty and massive, and when you take the people out of the corridors or whatever because the conference session is over, it just feels over sized, huge and overwhelming.
There is NOTHING intimate, homely or personal about this hotel, you are very strictly a number. Shuffled around, mass catered, part of a flock. Everything about it says numbers game.
The rooms are relatively comfortable - i had a view into a parking structure, but i didnt know which direction or area i was looking at, just another part of this man made structure to support massiveness. No view, no orientation, no personality, just an environment to host a lot of people for a conference - which i think they do very well.
But you know, the windows dont open, the air is filtered, the bed is a standard hotel bed, you could be in any one fo about 7000 rooms in the place.
Not my cup of tea, but i think it probably does what it does well, if you are travelling to places where you are with friends or whatever, youll need about 2500 of your closest friends to feel any sort of intimacy here.
We went to the Gaylord in DC on a Thursday night. Very crowded. Couldn't walk around without saying excuse me at least 100 times. Kids everywhere screaming and shouting, banging into you, riding the elevator like it was an amusement park. Somewhat disappointed in the atmosphere. I love children and have several but they never behaved like that. So we wanted to get some food everything was a 2-hour wait. We decided to go to the Buffet. Wow, what a mess. I thought I was back in the Boy Scouts. the food looked like it had been played with like finger paint. Of course, it was a child's focused menu. Everything fried to death. Oh and stupidly expensive, not for hotdogs and beans, sorry.
We went back to our rooms and ordered take out from a local restaurant. At the "Gaylord" really?
I've stayed at all of them this was the worst. When I shell out that kind of money I expect differently.
Give me the "Gaylord Palms" any day, or "Dallas" or the "Opryland". I will not return this was an awful time.
This was my first time at a Gaylord and I was very impressed. The inside of the hotel is truly impressive. It is like a town within a hotel. There's a whole shopping area, full grown trees, etc. It's very nice. It has the feel of walking through a downtown area. I ate at the steakhouse and it was pretty good as well. The rooms were great. The beds really comfortable, plenty of outlets, lots of space, and a great bathroom. The room service was also spot on. They cleaned everything without overdoing it but also laid out some towels on the counter and put my makeup bag on it so it wouldn't get wet next to the sink. tiny details set the place apart. I was there for a large work convention so I was also really impressed with the signage and directions provided for all our meetings. I'd highly recommend.
