How to Get There
LOVED the beautiful hotel Christmas decorations this year, but the ICE show is WAY overpriced. I paid almost $90 for three, plus another $20 to park. Won't be returning to your hotel any time soon. For the short amount of time you can actually spend in the ICE room, your prices are ridiculous, especially the $11 service charge. Luckily, we were there on a day we didn't have to stand in line; I have read the reviews by people who spent hours in line. You have overpriced yourself enough for me NOT to want to ever attend an ICE show again, sadly. What should be an enjoyable experience turned sour to me. Greed as usual from big companies; doesn't matter if it's the holiday season.
We were on a day bus tour to visit the Christmas ICE show Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer show. Millions of pounds of ice, 30 ice covers, tons of refrigeration units (keeps the room at 9 degrees) created a wonderful truncated version of Rudolph's store. The limited number of scenes were well craved, colorful, and well presented. Don;t miss the ice slide on your journey to learn about Rudolph. We were also somewhat disappointed this year. It seemed to us to be about half the size of previous ICE offerings in past years. The nativity scene was also well done, but significantly smaller than in previous years. The packers provided by ICE keep us warm and we enjoyed the the show. It is always fun to watch kid's reactions to the ice characters. Everyone in our party enjoyed the show! It looked like the hotel has reduced it Christmas decorating budget. While the hotel was decorated adequately, it was not as well decorated as it has been in past years.
The facilities were great, however, the restaurants were mediocre and quite expensive. I was with a number of students from A high school, and they found it quite expensive. It was also difficult to get into town based on the transportation system that was available. I think this would be a great place for a family, but not for a student conference with no personal transportation.
We went December 10th 2018 to see the Ice Sculptures in the Gaylord Texan. We go every year, and the displays are always different from the previous year, be sure to go down the ice slide. They provide insulated long hooded coats, but bring a knit hat and gloves, if you get "hand warmers" at walmart or bass pro you won't be sorry, give them to the next person on your way out. You can also go inside the Hotel and it is beautifully decorated for Christmas, lots to see. You can also have a glass of wine or a meal inside the Hotel. After your done with the ice sculptures there is more to buy if you want..like build a bear, tube sledding, hot chocolate, etc. So you have been warned if your bringing your children. You can save some bucks by buying through Groupon. Have fun, go get no re-do's in life.
For the third year in a row had a family gathering at Gaylord. Lots of things are good for grandkids but it has gotten very expensive. It is a nice property, well decorated and self contained.
Arranged rooms months in advance, speaking to the hotel to arrange connecting rooms and proximity. Due to forecast bad weather, we added a day coming in earlier with additional reservations. Couldn't get any response for 2 days from hotel to link reservations. Took 45 minutes to check in and they attempted to downgrade one of the rooms.
Transportation is a huge issue - backups in valet line are horrendous, causing an Uber to cancel and making family members late for off property corporate event.
Good news - doing ICE! midday on Friday was much easier. Lines for other events were easy. Total was expensive. I spend several hours ahead of time looking at combo tickets to maximize events at lowest cost - still had to buy carousel tickets and didn't use ice skating tickets due to weather.
Staffing throughout the hotel is huge issue - they do not staff up knowing the peak periods on the weekend. Housekeeping did not restock rooms appropriately. Couldnt get an answer on concierge line.
Avoid weekend if possible!
