Sister Road Trip: The Best Hotel You'll Ever Stay At

I decided to make a separate post about the awesome and amazing Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville that we stayed at. I've stayed at some nice hotels before, and I was pretty sure the Disneyland Hotel with all it's awesome Disney-ways would always be my favorite, but the Gaylord was so freaking gorgeous and had a bed made of Heaven that it's totally bumped Disney out of running place.

BUT we did have a slight problem with the heat kicking on in the middle of the night. The first night it happened, I couldn't find my pants (the cleaning lady found them for me the next morning) so I stayed under the covers when the maintenance guy showed up. Strangely enough, he looked just like our cousin Jamie. My sister was all whispering it to me (she had pants on) and I peeked my head out from the covers to confirm it. If I had a camera handy, I would have taken a picture. The next night, the heat kicked on sometimes towards the morning. We called maintenance again, they fixed it while we were at the Spa (having a Swedish massage, pedicure, and a hair blow out) (!!). When we checked out they did knock money off of our bill for the inconvenience.

The hotel itself is like a little village. I didn't take pictures of every area, but I did take a ton of the main floor.










We didn't stay in the balcony rooms. I felt like a total peeper walking by when guests had their doors open, but I had to see what the difference was in rooms! From what I saw, they were basically the same except they had the cool balcony.


At night, the whole place was lit up in white lights. 

And it was super pretty, but none of the pictures came out that great. 

While walking around the hotel, I sometimes felt like I was in the movie Bi-Dome, and almost expected Bud and Doyle to be busting a jig out in the middle of the walkway.


Sadly, it never happened.

  6. Wow... those trees look great under that ceiling.It's hard to describe, but the trees match that hotel excellently. Anyway, a road trip is nice -- doing it alone and driving your car feels kinda adventurous, but it's best when you've got someone to share the memories with!
