The two RV Gypsies (plus one) explored
the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN
July 17, 2014

Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, formerly known as Opryland Hotel, is a large hotel and convention center located in Nashville, Tennessee. It is owned by Gaylord Hotels, a division of Ryman Hospitality Properties (formerly known as Gaylord Entertainment Company), and operated by Marriott International. It is the largest non-casino hotel in the Continental United States outside of Las Vegas. Also ranking as the 29th in the List of largest hotels in the world.

On October 26, 2001, Opryland Hotel Nashville was rebranded as Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center (or Gaylord Opryland, for short), taking its name from its corporate parent. Company officials at the time stated that the "Opryland" branding was strong to Nashville (and Texas, initially), but didn't fit with projects in other parts of the United States.
