My new bride and I wanted to stay somewhere nice since we didn't have time to do our honeymoon right after our wedding. The Gaylord seemed like a great choice. We selected a room with an atrium view. The room was great, bed comfortable, and the staff incredibly courteous. The television controls were very awkward, however. The resort has its own television interface - like a guide - but it doesn't actually have show listings when you pull it up. All you'll find is a generic channel list, and if you venture into the "on-demand" section, the only things available are overpriced movies and free trailers, and free tv shows. No free movies. Bummer.
The spa, Relache, was great. We got massages in the morning. Mary and Carlos did a wonderful job.
We had room service as well. The prices, we thought, were a bit steep. The club sandwich was $15, plus a 21% service charge and a $4 delivery fee. After tip, it was almost $30. It was a killer sandwich.
The Glass Cactus was fun as well, and the live band did a good job of keeping the crowd moving.
Overall, our stay was amazing. I think this is the only time I could justify giving a score of five for a hotel that I've stayed at. Everything. Was. Perfect. I wish we'd had more time to spend there before getting back on the road.
