The room was spectacular. I was fortunate enough to stay in a suite - the room was spacious , beautiful, and had a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. The inner courtroom contained a large green space with a river walk and many restaurants and bar. It was a small city. There were other venues on the property - a nightclub overlooking a beautiful lake... Spa ... Totally fabulous. I never left the property for four days! I was there for a conference, but it is a good family destination.

Flew to Dallas for the first time for the annual surgery center conference at the Gaylord Texan (may 2016). Very nice hotel - nice size rooms, clean, and well designed. Convention center has good restaurant selection and a nice "Riverwalk". Highlight of meals was an excellent steakhouse - great ambiance and excellent food (expensive but worth it). Reception staff was very courteous and professional. Also, it is a Marriott affiliated hotel so I received Marriott reward points :-)

As with other Gaylord properties, the Texan is breathtaking in sheer size. Located approximately 7 miles from DFW, it's an easy drive, Uber/Lyft, or cab ride away. The hotel does not have a shuttle. The parking ramp is a fair distance and somewhat downhill from the lobby doors, so if you have any quantity of luggage, you may want to drop your bags before parking, or else pay up for valet. At $19/day, self-parking is somewhat steep for a non-urban area. If you're going to be limited in leaving th... Read more

The resort itself is pretty epic and everything you need is inside the massive atrium. There are a decent amount of choices for restaurants and whatever food you would like. The rooms are fairly modest in size compared to what you are paying, but it's more the resort your paying for then the room itself. The rooms are clean and offer great views of either the atrium or the lake outside. One the best parts of the resort are the giant stone fire pits on the patio outside. They are the perfect pl...

This place you have to see to believe. I was here on business in the convention center, but stayed at the hotel. Beautiful. It has 4 restaurants to choose from and many nice bars. The pool is huge, the grounds are beautiful, inside the atrium is almost unexplainable. The pictures I took tell the story. The room is a very typical size, not extravagant, but you have to get an inside view of the atrium with a balcony, perfect. It really is a resort, rather than just a hotel.

Have in mind that the Gaylord hotels are mainly for conventions, having said that you should know that those hotels are strategically build in the middle of nowhere in order to consume most of your stuff inside. However, there is a Grapevine Trolley that can take you to downtown, other tourists attractions and the mall that is close by, so this is a plus. The service is excellent, the rooms are clean, so if you have to stay here because of a convention that you have to attend you will not go wro... Read more

I visited for a business conference - the conference area is top notch and an easy walk from the rooms. I opted not to do an atrium view room and was rewarded with beautiful Texas sunrises over the landscape and a front row seat to watching a neat storm. If you aren't an early riser, the curtains are nice and heavy. The planes flying overhead can be frequent and quite loud at times so maybe not the place for light sleepers. I tried all of the restaurants and was impressed with the food. Esp... Read more

I've been to all the Gaylords, and none to me are outstanding. You are captured in a location really near nothing else. Minimal choice for restaurants and they all take advantage of you with price. Rooms are nice, beds comfy, but I've been in nicer rooms. Good for conventions.

The atrium in the hotel is so grand and worth seeing. There's a wonderful riverwalk with beautiful fish swimming in the "river". I really enjoyed my stroll through the atruim and looking around was so enjoyable. I went there for the Alice in Wonderland 4D adventure and was shocked to see the price of 15 dollars plus tax. For the price it was a huge disappointment. There are 3 rooms with what looks like chaulk drawings in them of various Alice in Wonderland themes. You wear 3D glasses and ... Read more

I've stayed in the Gaylord in Nashville and am very familiar with the large atrium. However, this Gaylord, on the visit, was just LOUD. Every night there was some type of event or something that was overbearingly noisy. I had the TV on fairly loud and could still hear it. One night my windows were shaking from the booming sounds. The restaurants were nice and had good food, but were quite pricey. I would suggest getting an Uber and leaving the property for your meals. They also screwed up ... Read more

I've visited the Gaylord several times for dinner or drinks with friends. This was my first stay at the Gaylord. We took my niece and nephew for a trip - they loved it - they swam until the pool closed (maybe 11 or 12?) and lived roaming around the atriums. My suggestion would be two things (that I observed others doing) an ice chest and getting food outside to bring to the pool. For families, the costs add up quick so little adjustments like that can make a really big difference in expense. But... Read more

We stayed at the Gaylord while in town for a conference (being held elsewhere). The hotel is beautiful. There are several restaurants to choose from as well as a few pop-up shops/stands. The atrium is beautiful, although I was not really impressed with the Alice in Wonderland thing that was going on. It felt 2nd rate. The waterpark is not very big but suited us just fine.

Let me start by saying my expectations and evaluation is based on my many visits to the Gaylord Texan BEFORE it was purchased by Marriott. I can only assume that the lack of the Gaylord's respect for their customers is an extension of Marriott's attempt to operate their facility at the expense of their guests. Warning - you should know if you book your stay at the Gaylord through Trip Advisor, the Gaylord considers your reservation as coming from a "third party" and therefore treat you as a sec...

First, we live in the area but wanted to get away and try something new. I successfully booked the Gaylord through Hotwire, got a great deal (I think it was 60% off). Upon arriving, you are kind of taken back by the detail in the atrium. Something you don't see around DFW. The staff was friendly. We went to a texmex restaurant that had just closed for the night so we had to go to the sports bar restaurant instead. It was OK food. The rooms are traditional-modern and were very clean

In all fairness, we had just returned from Las Ventanas Al Paraiso a few days before checking into the Gaylord Texan so the bar was set VERY high. Also to be noted the Gaylord is a LOT less expensive so we did alter our expectations accordingly (we knew we would not have 3 butlers). The first thing I noticed was the long line at check in but it moved quickly and there was an employee at the front of the line directing guests to the nearest open desk clerk which I thought was a nice touch.

Let me start by saying the resort is beautiful and my son had a great time. However, he is two years old and most of his stay was spent at the front desk. Our room keys were deactivated not once, not twice, but three times. Making 2 of my 24 hours of stay wasted. Not to mention I was woken up at midnight to come downstairs with security because my credit card was not being accepted. I showed the customer service lady that I indeed had money in my bank account and she stated that it was probably ... Read more

The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center was like a home away from home. Every amenity you need or want is available. I enjoyed the upscale rooms. The interior design was as if they designed it just for you! The service was the crĂȘme de la crĂȘme! As we entered the hallway we discussed that we left somethings and a bellhop overheard us and went above and beyond the call of duty! He provided what we needed effortlessly. We actually needed a wine opener and not only did he bring us one he bo... Read more

We really enjoyed this hotel. It was nice to have walking paths for the children, trains to watch, fish to enjoy watching, terrific water park, staff was great, and grounds were lovely! The only thing missing was a indoor play area for the children.

this is an absolute marvel of a hotel/convention property. It truly feels like a resort destination when you get here. It's very large so when they give you a map of this property they are not kidding-you will need it until you get your bearings. There is shopping inside that offers some unique and fun items to look for. The hotel has many terrific restaurant choices that you will enjoy. It's a beautiful place so make sure you have your camera ready.

Have stayed here and other Gaylords a number of times over years. This one probably the most efficient. They are very proud of their place, financially, but it is far and away the best in DFW area for serving several thousand folks. Never happy about parking fees which are mandatory here but otherwise, a solid stay. Food on site is also too pricey, but generally pretty good quality.

I stayed at the Gaylord Texan in June 2016 for a professional conference. I enjoyed my stay and I think it worked fine as a conference hotel. I will keep this brief and stick to comments on room and food. Room: I stayed in one of the rooms facing the atrium. It was as well kept, good size room with plenty of space. There was set of french doors opening to a balcony which I liked. However, a downside of the room location is that the atrium can get noisy. For example, there was some kids' event un... Read more

The hotel is so pretty. Summer fest is going on now. So the place is decorated with an Alice in Wonderland theme. Lots of things to do. Many are free. The 4d maze was excellent!!! The place was packed but it's summertime. The food was great at the sports bar. Not too pricey.

I was at the Gaylord for a conference and spent most of my time in meetings so I could not do this hotel justice. There was certainly a lot to see and do however. I was lodged in a room without a view overlooking the atrium so I was sorry to have missed that (so ask for a room with a view). The room was comfortable and clean. Lots of plugs and the wifi worked flawlessly. There are numerous restaurants and bars but because I was at a conference I did not use very many of them. The staff thr... Read more

I must admit, on first impressions I was a little concerned about the remoteness of this property - some 30 minutes drive from Dallas and the rather captive nature of the hospitality concept, but it all worked out great. While a little pricy there are many food and beverage options and the nearby town of Grapevine (2 miles) is a short and cheap shuttle or taxi ride away. As such there are many nearby food and beverage options. The the shopalholics among you the Grapvine Mall is also a short shut... Read more

Nice hotel, but the décor way over overdone in a Texas theme which reminds me of the décor you see in casinos. Bad barbeque odor all over the hotel and even on the higher guest floors. Nice furniture, and nice bathrooms. Service was fair. I was ouble charged me for parking, and ended up having to get my credit card company to dispute it because the two hotel workers I dealt with were less than eager to just simply fix the situation.

We had stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Resort some years ago, so knew about what to expect with the Gaylord Texan, in Grapevine, TX - large, atrium design, shops, restaurants and bars, and nice accommodations. We were there for several meetings, planned on property (very convenient, as one has so much from meeting rooms, to hotel rooms, plus all sorts of amenities, and under one roof - a very big roof).

The only thing missing inside were slot machines! I found this a great place to walk around out of the Texas heat yet feel like you are "outside." You won't find inexpensive food or drink but you may luck out on a great sale at Carolyn Pollack Jewelry. Take advantage of the inside grounds, the mini Alamo, the River Walk, etc.

The Gaylord was an ideal place for our family vacation. We traveled to Texas because we never been there before and picked Dallas because the Gaylord was there. The water park and children's activities added to our pleasure. The maze was more like a fun house and definitely over priced if you only go through once. The ticket is good for your entire stay. The scavenger hunt was perfect for my kids ages 9 and 12 and the prize was a drawstring summer fest bag. Gaylord could improve food options and... Read more

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. They have added the water park since the last time I was here. The water park was great. Big enough to hold a lot of people but not so big it's overwhelming. Our room was nice but nothing fancy. The staff were wonderful. No matter where we were at in the resort grounds the stag was friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for a girls' weekend and were so excited when we saw the property! We went right out to the pool where EVERY pool chair was taken. We found several by the cabanas, and were rudely told to leave unless we wanted to pay $160 for the cabana (even though no one was in the cabana). For the price we paid, we couldn't even find a place to sit at the pool. Next we ordered nachos, 2 sodas and 2 margaritas and the bill was $68!

My family ( 5 yr old boy, 2 yr old girl, 5 month old boy, and wife) and I just left the Gaylord after three days there. It was a nice stay but doesn't match up to similar resorts around Texas. The facility tries to cater both to professionals for conventions and to families. But it's clear that it was built for professionals. Recreation: the water facilities are good, but you have to take a shuttle 5 minutes to the "water park", which was very disappointing and definitely a hassle. The water pa... Read more
