    I was really excited to get an upgrade to a room overlooking the atrium. Even though I could hear the noise in my room throughout the night, I did not let this bother me. Occasionally, I would stand at the window and just look down at the scenery and the activity. It was great!

    Stuck heater, slow fix

    from

    My wife and I arrived at the Opryland Hotel early in the afternoon, it was late summer and she was eight months pregnant. The heater in the room was stuck on full heat, the knobs on the heater did nothing, it wouldn't turn off, it couldn't be turned down.

    I called the front desk, no response. My wife was tired and feeling sick, she only wanted to lie down. I kept the door open and got as much air circulating through the room as possible.

    After repeated calls to the front desk and a personal trip to the desk they sent up a repairman after about 1.5 hours. After another 15 minutes he called the desk to report we needed a different room. After another 15 minutes we got another room. Altogether it took about 2 hours to get a different room, no upgrade, no price adjustment, no apolagies. We will never go back.

    Beautiful and Clean

    from

    I loved my stay at the Opryland Hotel. The rooms, the lobbies, the restaurant, even the hallways are well-lit, nicely decorated and very clean. The staff is very polite and willing to please. The food in all the restaurants I visited was very good; so was the room service. I enjoyed strolling through the different shops, and the huge plants and fountains are breathtaking. It was so nice to sit on my balcony in the evening & listen to the soft music playing. I have NO complaints about the place - like I said I loved it!

    Does anyone speak English?

    from

    Here we are in Nashville, the heart of the good ole USA at what is supposedly an all-American icon and no one working there speaks fluent enough English to understand what I am asking! From the desk staff at check-in to the bus boys to house-keeping to waiters and hostesses, all non-English

    speaking!!! It was totally frustrating. Because I wanted to pay cash at check-in rather than use the credit card I had given them on the internet the entire process took 40 minutes! And guess what my credit card bill still shows the charge for the room! Now don't get me wrong, I feel anyone that can do the job deserves the job, but part of working at the desk at a huge tourist mecca is helping guests get info. If you don't understand the question, chances are you won't know the answer. If they did understand the question, we did not understand the answer because the English was so poor. The best was in the beautiful (and the place is breathtaking) atriums they would have a person with an 'ask me' button on and yes, you've got it, not my language. The best advice I can give is, do go, but plan to be there long enough to figure things out for yourself. It is a destination as opposed to a place you stay as you are passing through. Most of all, brush up on your foreign languages, ALL of them.

    Beautiful Place

    from

    We went to the Opryland Hotel for a getaway weekend. This place is beautiful.

    We brought 3 teenage kids. Check-in was great, they even let us check-in early into our room. The room itself was OK, nothing special...and it had a peculiar odor (sort of like a cigar bar). We turned the AC on, and sprayed some

    cologne in the room, and it was bearable. Me and the wife proceeded to the outdoor pool area. The pool area was awesome, reminded me of a vegas-style pool setting. The kids went exploring about the grounds. There had fun at first, but there were not many teenage kids at the grounds. They quickly became bored at just walking around. The gameroom was pretty outdated. That night we walked to the Opry Mills Mall next door to the hotel. It was very crowded at the mall area.

    This place is huge, and I would recommend bringing two-way radios to keep in touch with kids. The place has potential to be very romantic, but there are a ton of people walking around (most of which are not staying at the hotel). My wife felt like we were always in the way. We had an outdoor-facing room, and I think it would have been worth the extra money for the balcony-type room. If we do it again, we probably will not bring kids. In summary, it is an awesome place. I rated it a 4 because of the rooms.

    I am truly amazed at the number of slams on the Opryland. We've stayed there five times. We found it to be gracious, beautiful, and friendly. The atriums are magnificent, and there are some nice restaurants in addition to the food court. Our rooms were outstanding - three times with a beautiful balcony overlooking a waterfall, and the service was without flaw. All these gripers must have just THOUGHT they were at the Opryland!

    What a nightmare!

    from

    Worse run hotel I have had the misfortune of staying at....the checking in was a nightmare. We had reservations that were verified the day before checking in but the people at the front desk couldn't locate them. There were a total of 7 rooms reserved and all put on one charge card and they STILL messed up the billing because they insisted that one person in each room submit their charge card for "incidentals". They charged the rooms to those cards again!!!! No one at the front desk could speak English (that I could understand) and we both just looked at each other and nodded our heads. You had to call out the manager who was also dealing with several other people who's reservation was messed up and wait in line for her to straighten things out. THEN GUESS WHAT...we went through the same thing when trying to check out. Now I've got to call them again to get the charges off my charge card..hope I can find someone I can communicate!

    Oh, by the way...get ready for a hike trying to locate your room. I lost my husband just trying to find it!

    A Blast

    from

    A few friends and I were at The Opryland Hotel for only a short time but we had a unique experience! The Opryland Hotel is like no other hotel. It is Big and Beautiful with its many lusious garden areas that make you feel like you are in a bright rainforest. Everything is right there you never have to leave the hotel if you don't want to. It has all your shopping places and food stores. Its walls are like mountainous landscapes. You can look over the railing and everything seems to have no end. If you have any sense of direction and if you get a small handheld map of the place it is pretty easy to find your way areound and if you do happen to get lost you can ask a personel for help and they will be glad to oblige. You never get bored. There is always something going on from Country music stars singing to a convention or play. My friends and I will never forget our exciting trip to the Opryland Hotel.

    Shame on Opryland Hotel

    from

    My family and me spent Thanksgiving Holiday at the Opryland Hotel,(Three Nights). We had so many kids groups staying around our room that we never got to sleep at any time. We called the hotel's security to no avail. It was so bad that these kids uprooted a palm tree outside of our room. the room conditions were poor and the staff could not speak english, so they did not give us much help. I contacted Opryland Hotel twice about this. First by email and then by letter. The only response I got was a charge on my account for $1000.00 for the pleasant stay. What a joke Opryland Hotel, $230.00 a night for what?

    The good, the bad and the ugly

    from

    I have visited Opryland Hotel on a few occasions and have stayed at the Hotel twice. This is a beautiful place to stay, but be prepared to spend half of your time trying to find where you are going. There should be staff on the grounds helping to direct guests. Most of the staff you asked about how to get to a location did not know themself.

    I also had a shocking experiece when I tried to unplug an appliance. There happen to be a bad outlet and when I touched it I was hit and it blew everything out in the room. I was a little stun for a while but I have lived to tell this story. Ha! We had electricians in our room at 2:00 a.m. replacing an outlet. "Be careful when you unplug at Opryland Hotel".

    Dissatified traveler

    from

    Having traveled to Nashville, Tn, several times over the years, we often thought of staying at the Opryland Hotel, and on November 19, 2001 we made a reservation . When we arrived at the hotel we saw several school buses in the parking lot. At the time we were not aware of the significance of their large numbers. The clerk gave us a choice of the atrium or the magnolia area, which we choose, room 5393. The room was very comfortable with windows facing the conference center area. After unpacking we decided to have dinner at the Old Hickory Restaurant then tour the hotel. Many young people were there seeing the sights as well. Coming back to our room, several were on the elevator talking about the evening, saying that they had a curfew at midnight. We then realized that they were staying overnight as well, actually attending a conference. Hoping that the clerk would use common sencse and put us in a room away from the young people, but we were sadly mistaken, as there must have been thousands of young people in the entire hotel. Arriving back at our room around 9:00 PM we watched television to relax but the noise outside the room was very distracting. We phoned the main desk to complain and got no results. We phoned again asking to speak with the manager complaing that loud voices, door slamming and running in the halls were not exceptable for the price we paid for our rooms and the prestige that the Opryland Hotel was known for. Again, there was no change until midnight, their curfew. At check-out, we again brought up the dissatifaction only to be offered a free breakfast at Michelle's restaurant which we declined. The clerk then gave us an adjustment on the bill for $34.00 (breakfast cost, we assumed). No statement was given as the computors were down. Our experience was not at all what we had anticipated . We should have been informed of the conference for the young people and that so many of them would be attending. We would have postponed our stay to a later day, as it is now, we

    e was not worth the time or MONEY!
