Though hotels are known for their mini-fridges, mini-soaps, and mini-lockboxes, there is no finer place to live large. Enjoy a swanky holiday getaway with today’s Groupon: for $219, you get a one-night stay in a junior suite at the Gaylord Opryland, the legendary flagship jewel of Gaylord Hotels (up to a $477 value depending on the day; taxes and resort fee included). Those looking to double their stay can purchase and combine two Groupons.
Fully restored to its world-famous beauty and glamour, the Gaylord Opryland features a multitude of indoor shops such as Southern Home and Décor and The Opry Shop. Various restaurants can be found everywhere and in every variety, from quick-eating eateries such as Findley's Irish Pub, to more high-end fare at Old Hickory Steakhouse or Ravello's. The massive main atrium of the hotel feels like a small-town street bathed in natural sunlight from a mammoth glass ceiling and surrounded by a lush, indoor garden among cascading water, including a beautiful waterfall. Take a tour of the indoor garden with a delta boat ride that navigates the hotel's indoor river or line-dance your way to the famous Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville with the admission charge waived for Opryland guests and people who come with live cattle.
As a part of the resort's annual "A Country Christmas" event, some of the free seasonal attractions include an outdoor nativity display, Rockabilly Christmas, and the opportunity to bask in the evening glow of more than 2 million Christmas lights.
The Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel & Convention Center has won numerous awards including the 2010 Toast of Music City award for Best Hotel. The Tennessean and Nashville.com featured Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel & Convention Center and TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes:

- We could have spent a full week at the hotel without getting bored. It was all indoors with tremendous space and water features. If you have not been to this hotel, it is truly a fun experience. The room was amazing. – DagneyTaggert, TripAdvisor
