It’s not a hotel, it’s an experience

DrVMP (Beal, United Kingdom) on Sep 28, 2023

This is an experience not an hotel, The rooms are so-so which is a little strange when you are surrounded with grandeur. The common areas are stunning and we had an AR animal hunt for my 3 year old so made it easier to keep her Interest. Sadly the Delra River boats were closed (for a private function) by the time we got around to them, this was only advertised at the boats. So that was disappointing If you have never been please do give it a try, as I said it’s not an hotel but an experience. HOWEVER it does not come cheap. Base rate rooms were £400 without the resort daily tax of $25 and parking (each time you go in and out, not per day) is $35. Would I go back? Possibly but I’d like to upgrade the room next time to get a better experience. Staff felt quite absent at times.

Not Luxury But Good Stay

mickshrimpton (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) on Sep 28, 2023

Two nights for work conference. I came in with low expectations based on negative reviews. Not a luxury hotel by any stretch but rooms are your standard acceptable Marriott fare. Place is monstrous but not hard to get through once you get oriented. I was in Magnolia and glad to be in close proximity to conference area of hotel. Food at Ravello was fine despite bad reviews here. Gym was pretty good although AC was not working one morning and it was a sweaty mess (it was cool my second day). Lines for AM coffee were the norm. I walked to the nearby Opry Mills Mall which was a mistake as it is further than it looks with no good designated walking path. Appreciated proximity to airport but too far from downtown Nashville to ever make my way there.

Fell short of expectations

simchah3 (Nashville, Tennessee) on Sep 24, 2023

Unfortunately, my experience was not one of a world-class resort. Our room was not quite clean on arrival and only minimal compensation was offered. Also, the room we were given did not have hot water. There did not seem to be good communication between Management about the room problems. One guest staying with me did enjoy soundwaves. So that is probably worth visiting if you’re going to stay at this resort.

This trip was business for my husband but pleasure for me. Pros are numerous: upgraded due to Platinum Level to balcony view which was gorgeous, conservatory/atrium areas are so beautiful they are breathtaking, water show was free and great, staff was great, and the room was super attractive/comfortable. Cons included: base room rate was $400 +/night - not including $25/day resort fee, $35+/day parking fee, extras such as Delta river boat ride, spa, Sound Waves are huge additional expenses, food/drinks are overpriced, huge indoor/outdoor pools were both closed due to renovations, and Sound Waves was closed as well with no explanation. Warning for business guests needing to set up for shows - it is not for the weak! Be prepared to hike your items in about 1/2 mile - my husband brought a dolly and made 3 trips! Also, he needed to make several trips out of parking to reload his car the day before checking in and was charged $35 EVERY TIME he had to re-enter the parking lot!! In conclusion, visiting Opryland Hotel is amazing and unforgettable - but be prepared for the astronomical expense!

No Complaints!

MatthewC3007 (Saint Louis, Missouri) on Sep 17, 2023

I stayed here in mid September for a conference at the hotel. Everything about this place is amazing! The indoor atriums are beautiful, the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms and hotel are clean, and the atmosphere is so nice you don’t want to leave! There are plenty of food options, although it is expensive. But that’s to be expected in a nice hotel. The parking is about $30-$35/day so I parked next door at the Opry Mills Mall (about a ten minute walk to the hotel). They didn’t seem to mind! I honestly have no complaints about this place!
