    Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center continues to make excellent progress on the restoration of the property – and remain on track to meet their November 15, 2010 re-opening date.More than a thousand people are at work inside the hotel every day — representing 38 separate contracting companies including architectural, interior design, procurement, engineering, and construction.

    During the clean up and remediation phase, now complete, the hotel removed every porous surface that was touched by water, along with all furniture, flooring and other materials that were damaged by the flood. During this process they removed 1,200 dumpsters full of debris. They also replaced affected air ducts to ensure a clean, comfortable environment for future guests. Industrial hygienists have inspected the hotel from top to bottom and have given the hotel a clean bill of health!

    The hotel has unveiled the first preliminary renderings of several of the Gaylord Opryland’s redesigned spaces, including the Cascades Lobby, Cascades Bar and Magnolia guest rooms. The Cascades Lobby will be entirely new, open and modern. The new front desk and ticketing station will be accompanied by the addition of a VIP area just off the lobby. The entire Cascades atrium is being redesigned – including a new bar, restaurant and enhanced water features. Guests will also find new Italian and Mexican restaurant concepts in the Garden Conservatory. Plus, the Magnolia lobby is undergoing a complete redesign, as are the Magnolia guest rooms and five Presidential suites.
