This is a family favorite for us. We have been staying at this hotel for many years as it continues to grow and expand. I really consider this hotel a destination. You can spend quite a while just walking through all the indoor gardens, walkways and watching the fountains. Sometimes you will find entertainment playing music or dancing in one of the lobby areas. There are several really nice shops, great restaurants and a food court. The pool area is nice (outdoor) and they have opened a new spa that I haven't tried. The hotel is usually pretty crowded, often with bus loads of people coming to Nashville, but it is so large that you don't really notice. It is not at all unusual to see a country music star walking through the lobby. The large Opry Mills Mall is within walking distance. This is a fun place to visit.
