How to Get There
My family celebrates family at Christmas because that was the one time we could all get together and spend time with each other. As we age, it means more to keep the family connected so we make the extra effort to find a location that will make memories for our children to carry into the future.
In 2018 we stayed at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine. We viewed the ICE exhibit, wore the kids out in the pool, and joined the extended family for mealtimes in the ballroom.
The hotel staff were pleasant from the very beginning. Checking in was simple, efficient, and informative, and there was much more to do here than we could fit in the three days we were staying. (That was my fault - I had not done my research). Our bellhop spent more than ten minutes answering our questions (even from our children) and telling us more about our options, which helped us to plan our activities. The concierge desk had enough staff to help 2-3 families at a time.
The Gaylord is a one-stop entertainment location. There are ample restaurants, shopping, and entertainment opportunities right there under one climate-controlled roof. The walkways are beautiful, the indoor river is a nice touch, if not a bit noisy, and every room on the inside has a balcony that opens up into the atrium, beckoning you to the balcony chairs to just relax.
The one drawback - the coffee shop is quite small, so there was always a line in the morning that ran into the lobby hallway. I’m not addicted to sugar, so that didn’t bother me.
The Gaylord Texan was a great discovery for me and I do believe we will be returning there soon.
The inside suite and view was amazing (free upgrade). The Mexican lamb tacos was my favorite food. Front desk and housing services was phenomenal, friendly and very professional. Recreational activities were plentiful and adult activities were good.
My company recently held a conference here. The grounds were beautiful and so were the banquet rooms. I feel the actual hotel rooms leave a bit to be desired; nothing upscale to them. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean, so that's a plus.
Stayed for a three day conference. I will try to give a review of the hotel and my conference experience.
ACCESS - Convenient to both DFW and Love Field. Uber from Love cost me about $35 each way with tip. Uber into Grapevine $7 each way.
CHECK IN AND STAFF - Smooth check in and plenty of super friendly staff all over to help you with whatever you may need (especially to help you find your way around).
THE ROOM - The room was really nice. Very clean and well maintained. Nice huge flat screen tv, easy and strong WiFi, safe, mini fridge, really comfortable bed. My room was facing the atrium so I had a small balcony with a couple chairs accessible by some French doors. There was a small waterfall outside the room which added some white noise outside the room. It seems like depending on where your room will determine how noisy your night will be. I had a little problem with warm water - it took a while to heat up and even then it was still lukewarm.
THE AMENITIES AND GROUNDS - the place is huge, kinda overwhelming. The Atrium is expansive with water features running throughout. Lots of noise from water fountains and waterfalls. It wore on me little by little through my stay. A nice variety of in house restaurants. Two coffee shops, a number of retail shops, bars, pretty pricey all around. Outdoor and indoor pools, large fitness center, full service spa. Parking on site is very pricey. This hotel hosts a large number of events and there were hordes of school age kids all over which made for a pretty hectic time everywhere you were. Plan to walk a lot to get around where you need to go. It takes a little bit to get oriented but once you get the lay of the land, it’s easy to find everything. Good signage throughout the resort. Really nice outdoor area with fire places was one of the few places to relax.
CONFERENCE CENTER - Okay facilities. I was disappointed our breakout rooms had no tables and small chairs connected tightly together made for uncomfortable sessions. You will not be the only group here so be prepared.
CONFERENCE FOOD - Probably the worst banquet food I have experienced. Super rubbery chicken and soggy sandwiches highlighted the offerings. Very disappointing.
Overall, it was a decent hotel but the number of people were just overwhelming. It is family friendly, but this would not be a place I would stay for a romantic getaway or anything other than special family trip or conference.
Great hotel with spacious rooms. The beds & linens are very comfortable. Large bathroom with ample counter space. It is easy to get to from the airport. It is a Gaylord, so be prepared to walk a lot to get to meetings or sessions. But it's a Gaylord, so the staff is very attentive. Great location...great hotel!
