Flood Damage at Gaylord Opryland
May 6th, 2010 By: Rich Miller
In early March more than 800 data center professionals gathered for Data Center World at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, an extraordinary facility with 2,900 rooms and 600,000 square feet of meeting space. The hotel was completely deluged during the recent flooding that hit Nashville, with water filling the facility to a depth of between 8 to 10 feet. Guests were successfully evacuated, but Gaylord Opryland is currently closed and not accepting any reservations as it assesses how long it will take to re-open the resort. Early estimates suggest the resort will be closed for several months. This video provides an overview of the flood damage.

sorry to see that – it is a beautiful hotel – I am sure they will restore it wonderfully.

My cousin is a cop in Nashville and was telling me about the damage there and also to homes in the area. Devastating is a massive understatement.
WOW. This is unreal. I was just there for AFCOM DCW. This is an amazing beautiful hotel. How unfortunate. I’m confident that it will come back to its spectacular beauty.
I was just there last summer, hard to believe that much water flooded that hotel. But given the prices they charge per room they should recover fast..
