Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, owned and operated by Marriott International, is the largest non-casino hotel in America and a place we recommend exploring even if you're not staying in a room. From the over 9 acres of airy, indoor gardens to the huge Soundwaves Water Park and more, if you're not careful when you stay here you'll forget all about visiting the rest of Nashville. The hotel and the adjacent Grand Ole Opry House we're built in 1977, following the Opry's move from it's previous permanent home the Ryman Auditorium. If you're traveling with kids theres no hotel we recommend more than Gaylord Opryland.
