Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time and find a place to hang your stetson with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a one-night stay in an executive suite at Gaylord Texan Resort, located in Grapevine (up to a $500 value, depending on the day and time of year). Tax and the resort fee are included in this deal. Two Groupons may be used for a stay of two consecutive nights, but all reservations are subject to availability. This Groupon expires September 5, 2011.
Guests of the Gaylord Texan's luxurious executive suites can bounce atop a custom-made king-size mattress swathed in plush bedding, surf the Internet with complimentary WiFi, and swivel around behind an executive desk. Suites also house a living area and a bathroom lined with granite counter space, ideal for chopping your soothing cucumber slices for the eyes and protective carrot sticks for the nose. The resort also hosts a wide range of amenities, including a 25,000-square-foot spa, both a 20-meter indoor lap pool and an outdoor swimming pool, and Paradise Springs, a 10-acre pool complex with a snaking river as lazy as a sloth that’s just eaten an entire bag of Doritos. Six restaurants and seven lounges span the well-groomed premises, sating any taste for sustenance or spirituous liquids. Throughout each stay, Gaylord Texan’s luxurious expanses nourish eyes with opulent fountains and landscaping, and stately architecture.
