The Gaylord, run by fee-mad Marriott and consequently overpriced, is geared to captive audiences attending meetings, so although its scenery is extravagant, so are its incidental charges. Still, it impresses: Beneath its mighty glass atrium is a 4 1/2-acre Florida-themed ecosystem of gator habitats, caves, indoor ponds, sand sculptures, restaurants, and a full-size sailboat. All of that makes for an attraction unto itself, and to face it, you’ll pay about $25 extra. Rooms sleep five and sport unusually nice granite-lined bathrooms. If Disney weren’t right outside, you might never leave, what with the on-site Cypress Springs mini-waterpark (which would be elaborate enough to please a small town and is free to guests), main pool, and the Relâche Spa & Salon. It also schedules family activities and an annual holiday ICE! extravaganza. The 300-odd rooms in the Gulf Coast tower opened in 2021. Resort fee warning: $30/night.
