Opryland Hotel Re-Opens TODAY- Better Than Ever!!

Nashvillians and folks from around the country watched in horror as Nashville was drowned by swift moving flood waters…But, it really hit home when pictures surfaced of the historic Grand Ole Opry House under several feet of water, and the majestic Opryland Hotel submerged, looking more like swamp land than a swank hotel and convention center.

It’s safe to say, that since the flood, tourism hasn’t quite been the same…Even though Nashville is indeed open for business.  The Opryland Hotel was a destination for visitors and those who call Nashville home.  Many wondered if it really could be cleaned-up to be as beautiful as it once was. Well, we’re about to find out because the Opryland Resort & Hotel re-opens it’s newly renovated doors TODAY…And dare we say it’s better than ever.

The hotel didn’t just repair damage, it took the opportunity to give itself a $270 MILLION facelift of sorts.  Only 120 rooms were damaged, but 700 were given a substantial upgrade.  Several new restarants were added, and upgrades to meeting facilities.  In fact, event  planners and media will be swamping Opryland’s grounds this weekend in attempt to prove that Nashville and Opryland is open…Hoping that if the new look won’t ‘woo’ people back then private shows with Sheryl Crow and Keith Urban will.

There are also plenty of public events to lure folks to Opryland…Including their annual ICE display, the Radio City Rockettes, and a concert by Trace Adkins….And, if the holiday light display doesn’t put you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will.
