NYE-Opryland Hotel or downtown

My boyfriend and I want to come to Nashville for New Year's Eve. I have a deal to get a room at the Opryland Hotel at a decent rate-we've never stayed there, but I hear it's a beautiful place. Looking thru the forums though, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to stay downtown. Any thoughts? Do they shuttle from the Opryland Hotel to downtown? And if so, how far after midnight do they do this? I've also heard that they drop a guitar at midnight like they do an apple in New York. Is this true?

The fun is definately downtown, yes the guitar drops.

Opryland does run a shuttle, I'm not sure if it is free or not. I would contact them for details & times.

Opryland at Christmas is pretty neat. Personally, I prefer downtown because there is more to do, better dining options. Opryland is ratehr isolated form the cool stuff in Nashville.
