A night at a lavish resort is a welcome treat for overworked homeowners and for those in hiding from Pat Sajak. Today's Groupon lets you sleep soundly away from home: for $199, you get an overnight stay in an executive suite at Gaylord Palms Resort, located just a mile and a half away from Disney World, in Kissimmee (up to a $500 value). Your Groupon is good for Friday-, Saturday-, or Sunday-night stays, from July 9th through September 6th.
Escape the concrete jungle for a night in the temperature-controlled jungle of a massive resort and playland. In addition to its many lavish guest rooms, Gaylord Palms contains six restaurants and lounges, a spa, a retail space, and four and a half acres of gardens and tributaries under its signature glass dome, including three enclosed habitats that re-create Florida environments. Stroll through the rustic wooden walkways of the Everglades as mists rise all around you and marvel at the Spanish Renaissance architecture and old-world charm of St. Augustine. You'll have a chance to bask in the tropical vibe of the Key West atrium, home to steel drums and a 60-foot schooner. Just outside Key West, you'll find Clearwater Cove, an outdoor swimming area complete with an octopus waterslide, a pool, majestic waterfalls, and a sandy play area for tots.
Executive suites at the resort are generally designed to reflect one of the three dome-enclosed environments, and the rooms—which reach up to 725 square feet—come complete with a living area and queen sleeper sofa, a small dining table, a separate bedroom with a king-size bed, and marble finishes on the surfaces.
Gaylord Palms Resort was named Best Spa and received an honorable mention for Best Resort from Florida Monthly magazine in 2008. The resort has also received a number of other awards. Yelpers give the hotel four stars, and TripAdvisors give it 3.5 stars:
