The Opryland Hotel is steeped in Southern hospitality, and has breathtaking scenery, soothing surroundings, and impeccable service. The hotel offers more than nine acres of indoor gardens and 600,000 square feet of meeting space. The property is enhanced by Opryland USA's entertainment venues, which include the Grand Ole Opry. A $200 million entertainment/retail complex, Opry Mills, is slated for completion in 2000. During the next decade, the Opryland Hotel concept will be taken into additional markets. The Opryland Hotel-Florida in Kissimmee-St. Cloud and the Opryland Hotel-Texas in Grapevine will be the first two properties to open.
