Editorial review:

This gigantic hotel Gaylord Palms Resort And Convention Center has everything, whether you're here on business or vacation. The rooms are attractive and well-furnished, there's a park with putting greens and a Canyon Ranch spa. The atrium has beautiful greenery and there are even real alligators here. Critics disliked all of the children and drunken convention-goers, though.

          I was with teen age male grandchildren ,our interests were the Game room, the weight room, the pool and room service, as well as walking the grounds.and a little shopping.....We went to Epcot one day and the bus service was great , including a fun female busdriver on our return back to the hotel

          There always seemed to be a tax or add on and then another for the city,hotel,conferance center etc.,Also I fell off the treadmill and sustained many bruises an abraision and a couple minor cuts, louckily I had no fractures ...I did not want to fill out papers as it was the 1st day of vacation andf I could walk ok....However looking back I think I should have been introduced to the tredmill, it was going so slow, I made a mistake and put in a pulse of 84 which is not high and I thought it would give me an idea of where I should go from there...anyway it kept moving faster and faster I could not keep up and I could not reach the stop bottom because I was too far back on the machine ...I ran and ran and finally fell off.......Apparently I w

          The unique experience of the hotel. It is unlike any other hotel in Florida.

          The cheerleaders. I had no idea they would be staying at the hotel. It was like staying in a dormatory. Doors slamming all night long.

          Beautiful setting

          My husband Arthur & I chose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at gp because we had heard it was very nice & was close to Cirque Du Soleil. Very disappointing experience - courtyard music heard from our room loud/distorted; room service pizza crust undercooked; 2 dining venues we wanted to try closed to regular guests (we did not receive prior notice; hence the room service pizza); our children called to have our name on marquee, which it apparently was, but was not brought to our attention by staff so we missed it; most disconcerting was hair, both head & body, on bath tile.

          The hotel and hotel grounds were absolutely beautiful and spotless. It was very convenient to the Disney Parks

          The $17 hotel facility fee, $13 to self-park each day and $1 per pound to receive fedex packages seemed a bit much

          a lot of trees, plants, free of charge bus to disney parks it is a big plus, because it takes 20-30 dollars to go to park every time. it is a real advantage of the hotel.

          there are no good restaurant at all. every time i was disappointed with the food in all the restaurants of the hotel.even my 2 daughters refused to it this food.

          I love this hotel. I visit about twice a year. The indoor atrium is just beautiful. I feel safe staying here alone. I walk all through the gardens at night, as well as in the pool, late night. I was upgraded to king, atrium, with balcony.

          Well, it is expensive. I wish I knew about the construction when I booked this trip. I loved the adult pool but now due to the contruction everyone needs to use the same pool. The spa is also pretty expensive but great!! Direction given by booking agent could have been much better.

          Good hotel,but mostly for special occasion. Too expensive for park visitors, since you don't get to spend too much time at the hotel.

          Paid parking and resort fees, which I believe outrageous.

          Nice with real wow factor even for Florida. The atrium is amazing. But the restaurants are very pricy as is the charge just for parking your car so be prepared. We took kfc back to the room one evening.

          The garden area within is gorgeous.

          The food at the resturants was very overpriced. We had lunch at the sports bar with 4 burgers, an appetizer, and 2 alcoholic drinks and the bill was over $150.00. It is cheaper to eat at City Walk at Universal or Disney world. The buffet for an adult is over $20 with kids being $10.

          The open atrium and natural setting....very peaceful.

          Trying to get the car from valet parking. We were in a soccer tournament at Disney near there and it took too long to get the car. We would try to call ahead and were told there was too high a volume and that they couldn't take requests. We were almost late for a soccer game because they took 20 minutes to get the car - even though they always say 10 minutes!! We will not use valet next time and just self park.
