I stayed at the Hyatt Place Opryland for a week-long conference that was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. I found this hotel through Priceline at a rate of $70/night. What a great deal for a very good hotel.
I would place this in the rank of a nicer Courtyard by Marriott or similar. The rooms have a modern styling that reflect the theme of the lobby. I would guess that this hotel is relatively new or has been renovated recently for that reason. The room itself isn't enormous, but it's certainly bigger than most 2.5-3 star hotel options out there. My room, which I think was fairly standard (#405), had a living space with a sectional couch, desk, small bar area and 42" LCD TV on a lateral swivel mount. There was a small divider between the couch and the bed which affords some privacy I suppose, but it's not at all suggestive of a suite or anything like that. In fact, you can easily see the TV from either the bad or couch which is a thoughtful option.
The bathroom is tiny, but was functional. There is little closet space and minimal drawer space. As one person, I filled up both with ease with my week's worth of clothes.
The staff was friendly and attentive. There was a continental breakfast bar in the mornings which was very convenient. You have a few options here: bagels, english muffins, toast, fruit (sliced grapefruit, bananas, melons), cold cereal, oatmeal, juices and coffee... your typical continental offerings. I believe there were other options available (like eggs), but this was extra.
There was an exercise room with a few treadmills and maybe an elliptical, but that was about it. Nothing special here. I don't recall a pool, but there might have been one. There is free wifi internet, but I had the worst time getting any kind of bandwidth on it. The signal was decent, but the download speed was reminiscent of dial-up.
There was a shuttle to the convention center that operated during most of the day. I didn't use it, but it apparently would pick you up from the convention center upon request. I believe they also had airport shuttle service, but I had a rental car so this wasn't an issue for me.
The convention center is within walking distance, but is probably on the order of 3/4 of a mile away. If you don't like to walk, it might be too far, but lots of people did this. I found it to be very leisurely. Parking at the Gaylord Opryland is essentially restricted unless you feel the need to pay about $20 per day which is absolutely outrageous.
Nearby are a few restaurants and other hotels. I recall Applebee's, Bob Evans, Cracker Barrel, and McDonald's very close by. The mall also has some dining/shopping options, but this is a bit further away (maybe 2 miles south).
Overall, I enjoyed this hotel very much and would recommend it to others. Not terrible romantic or anything, but an idea business trip option.
