“Over the Top!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

From the valet parking to the check in. This is truly a stellar property. Extremely large, so everything is a hike. But truly amazing around every corner. Lovely guest rooms and wonderful restaurants. Fireworks on Friday night. The grounds are beautiful and the services are perfect. Each member of the staff was friendly and helpful. Amazing!

Room Tip: The atrium rooms look over the river walk and have balconies.

Stayed six nights at the Gaylord Texan - Almost never left the resort complex. The hotel has excellent food, a an on-site club, a very professional series of meeting/convention facilities, and the friendliest staff in Texas.

Marriott does a nice job managing, with very helpful housekeeping staff that do a very nice job with a smile. I recommend the Hills Tower. Great views, and on the quiet side of the hotel. Lots of kids on-site had a great time, and they have a wide variety of shops and price points.

The breakfast at the River-walk Cantina was especially delicious. The Texas sized Alamo and River-walk areas are a trip through Texas history without leaving the resort.

Room Tip: Hills Tower is quiet but a good walk form the convention center area.

This hotel is located in Grapevine on the lake and out of town and away from any attractions so if you stay here you will need a car to drive to places, however, the purpose of this visit was for a conference so it was great as the conference venue is right on the doorstep. Nice little shops and restaurants in the property. Also used the shuttle bus to the shopping centres which makes a stop every hour.

Room Tip: My room was facing the sports bar restaurant in the atrium and it was perhaps not so private as I wo...

I stayed at the Gaylord Texan for a conference, and arrived a few days early to see some of Texas. Check in was quick and efficient, I asked for a room with a view and got a west facing room over the outdoor pool. Ate in the hotel a couple nights, the Mexican and sports bar restaurants were busy, but service was efficient and friendly. Food was tasty. A short walk to the convention space was appreciated after the long days. The only issue I had was the Tuesday, with housekeeping. I had a short break, so I went to the room to catch up on emails. Housekeeping had not been there yet. I stayed for a half hour, then left. Came back after 4 pm and they still hadn't cleaned the room. They never did service my room that day, even when I was gone all evening. Other than that, the staff were friendly and helpful.

The Gaylord Hotel is a luxury hotel with plenty to do, for the whole family--however, it is pricey. They have a wonderful Sunday all-you-can-eat brunch--although it's very expensive. The Glass Cactus nightclub is on the property and overlooks Lake Grapevine. It is really fun, and the age range is 30's-50's. If you run a tab there--buyer beware--you will get overcharged. Pay for drinks as you go.

This resort is massive no other word for it, and i usually find the larger the hotel the less personal, however not this one, the staff are fantastic to say the least nothing is too much trouble, rooms are what you expect from a hotel of the quality.
3-4 restaurants all serving good food, sports bar is a dream if you like sport of course, has a good pool and a water park for the kids, and night club also.
Worth a visit for sure.

I have been to dozens of conferences and conventions over the years. The Gaylord Texan is one of the better "convention center hotels" I have stayed in. The room was fairly spacious and I loved the private balcony. The atrium is quite unique and a great place to explore. The convention amenities were very nice, including the food. Staff was nice and the swimming options stellar.

A few things did not add up well. First, the on-site parking is very expensive and a decent distance from the lobby. Second, the on-site store is very overpriced. You expect to pay a premium for a soda or snack at a hotel, but they are charging triple average retail on most convenience food items.

Overall, a fantastic stay and a very cool place to hold a convention (or vacation with the kids due to all the swimming options and proximity to numerous sights and tourist attractions).

Room Tip: The atrium view is fantastic, but be warned there is a lot of night life in the atrium - choose a di...
