What to Expect at Gaylord Opryland


Taking care of our guests has always been our number one priority.

We have implemented a variety of new protocols and elevated practices, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping with our high standards of cleanliness and commitment to providing excellent service.

We have also made a few adjustments to the services, amenities and facilities available during your stay.

Here is what to expect during your stay at Gaylord Opryland.

Social Distancing

We are using signage throughout the resort to remind guests to maintain social distancing and have removed or re-arranged furniture to allow more space for distancing. In compliance with local and state mandates, occupancy limits and seating capacities have been reduced to allow for appropriate social distancing.

We have added partitions at front desks, concierge stands, and food and beverage service lines to provide an extra level of precaution for our guests; and, have implemented line management initiatives to reinforce proper social distancing.

Hygiene & Cleanliness

STARS (employees) are required to be aware of and follow personal hygiene, physical distancing and Personal Protective Equipment, in compliance with all federal, state and local public health guidance. Hand sanitizing stations for guest use are placed in high traffic areas and public spaces.

Shared Responsibilities

We’re laser-focused on providing our teams with the tools, training and resources that are necessary in this environment. We ask that you also take steps to protect the health of those around you: avoiding traveling if not well, practicing sound preventative actions such as good hand hygiene, and following the physical distancing and health practices as outlined by state/local law and the hotel.
