Great place for a family trip with kids. Orlando being a place for Disney land and Universal Studios. You have to manage and take a long break from office to enjoy the entire city. Best part of the hotel was its ambiance, Gators from gator land and different types of activities in the resort itself. You can say one can...

We went just for the ICE show and spent one night there. Wow! As beautiful as I had heard! The hotel grounds were gorgeous and the Reindeer activity kept our kids engaged while we wandered around. Too cold to use the pools, but that's okay as we live in Florida. We ate at the sports bar and my husband was...

Beautiful hotel grounds and water park. Tons of things to do. Top notch spa with amazing customer service and amenities. Old Hickory Steakhouse had wonderful customer service, great drinks and apps but fell a little short on the main course. I would stay at this hotel any time but it is absolutely magical around the Christmas holidays.

It would be difficult to describe how beautiful the Gaylord Palms is when all decked out for Christmas! Suffice it to say, the grounds and displays are breathtaking! We live in Florida, but stayed overnight so that our seven and eight year olds could do ICE. They soon tired of the cold but spent a great morning playing with other...

My husband, two kids and I stayed here for two nights. It was a wonderful time!!! First impressions are amazing - it's unlike any hotel/resort we've been to and you will literally get lost in there! :) Everything that you could possibly want or need can be found here - a coffee shop, frozen yogurt shop, arcade, several restaurants (though...

You often wonder if, after your initial stay, a hotel will still be as good as you remember, or, in some cases, as bad. So pleased to be able to say that the quality has been maintained, from reception to room make up and beyond. It is still a joyful playground for family's, a meeting place for business needs or...

really cool. They supply heavy coats to go in to 9 degree display of ice sculptures and ice slides.Warm up with hot chocolate and go back around. Made a day of it and ate dinner at Wreckers bar and grill right in the hotel.

This resort is an amusement park in its own. It has junior alligator /turtle pond and koi fish, has many tress and flowers which make it quite pleasant and fun to just walk around. I am never disappointed with Marriott lines of hotels, however, I do wish the room had a couch and coffee table to lounge. I got 90...

I can't even explain how beautiful is this place with the lights and decorations during Christmas time. This is my first time in a Gaylord but I hope is not my last one. The room was beautifully decorated and we were so lucky that we got an upgrade to the atrium because we are rewards members. My kids love the...

We stayed at the Gaylord Palms January 2 and 3 to take family to see the Christmas decorations and ICE presentation. Even though it was advertised to have Christmas festivities through January 5, there were no shows. We had looked forward to the entertainment as part of the overall experience. There was not much else going on besides the beautiful...
