Gaylord Texan

For Thanksgiving this year we spend the week at the Gaylord Texan. The Gaylord Texan is a massive hotel in Grapevine, Texas not for from the DFW airport.

The whole place is themed out except for the rooms. As you can see from the photos the rooms are just average hotel rooms. They had plenty of room and the mattresses were comfortable. Gaylord Texan

Like the rooms the bathroom was average. The sink is separate from the little space with the bathtub and toilet. They provided the standard shampoo, conditioner, soup, and lotion. Now this next part may sound a little picky, but I assumed that with what we were paying per night for a room that there would be more amenities. I expected a few cotton balls and some Q-tips. I also expected a better bathtub. At well over $200 a night which is high for a hotel room in Texas I expected more out of the room.

Now they may not go all out on their rooms, but boy do they go all out on their atrium. As I mentioned we were here for Thanksgiving and by then they have fully decorated for their Lone Star Christmas

I paid $13 for this and it was big enough that I could have split it with one of my kids. In fact I like Frito Pie so much I actually publish a Frito Pie recipe on this site!

We also ate at Zeppole Italian Restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner where I had the best Creme Brûlée I’ve ever had.

Although we decided not to do ICE! this visit we have been before and you can see what we thought!
