Nice hotel, good staff - but quite a bit smaller than the Gaylord in Nashville. TN. Was a nice hotel / convention Center combination for a recent convention. Lots of places to walk around indoors, outdoor seating by the pools. Good options for transportation to Orlanda Theme Parks. Without a car, I did feel a bit restricted in my dining...

My husband was attending a convention at the Gaylord Palms resort, and I came along for a little R&R. I was pleasantly surprised at what a lovely resort this was in so many ways. The huge atrium proved to be a treat, as the hot, humid weather outside was not enjoyable. The lovely, spacious indoor space, including the many restaurants...

Beautiful grounds and atrium inside the hotel, nice WOW factor that wears off rather quickly. Had a convention there and thought it was very expensive to go out to eat or have a couple of drinks. Rooms were decent, but far from 5 star. Seems to be a bit run down and in need of an upgrade. Nothing major just...

We showed up pretty late to hotel after a long drive. We were upgraded to the St. Augustine section of the Atrium to a king bed room with a balcony overlooking the atrium. We were also given complimentary late check out due to our late arrival. The staff was very kind, even the valet parking staff. Our room was tremendous....

The beauty of the atrium, gardens, etc. is astounding. As for the accommodations, we left disappointed about some very basic things that could have made for a more enjoyable and satisfying experience if different. In even the most modest hotels, for example, you receive a guide for your television so you know what is playing or what is coming up...

I'll start with the good... The resort itself was beautiful and well maintained, the staff were very very good and helpful. The room was well equiped and the 2 bottles of water a day in the room fridge was a nice touch. The pools were great and the service in the pool area was also very good and they took...

To be fair, I really don't enjoy business travel in Orlando. You can't escape the kids and tourists and family fun. Thus hotel is big and has a different, almost Vegas feel because if the atrium. It was like being outside while inside while outside. It was fine if you are ok with just staying there. It's on an island...

We went for a Harley-Davidson Dealer Show. The view from the atrium is great. Many good places to eat & drink. I would go back. The whole staff was very helpful, everything was clean, and the fact we could just walk to the convention center made it so easy.
