Quite possibly the most lavishly elegant hotel in Florida, the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center has everything that you would expect in a first-class luxury hotel and much more than you could possibly imagine. This award-winning hotel features a Gaylord signature glass-dome atrium encompassing the majority of the hotel, over 400,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space (the most in Florida), 1,400 rooms (including more than 100 suites), and three (3) full service restaurants with several fast-service outlets. Also at the disposal of all the guests of Gaylord Palms are a full service spa and a state-of-art workout facility covering over 24,000 square-feet.

The natural themes of the Sunshine State were embedded in the design of this resplendent resort and convention center. There is 4 1/2 acres of themed luxury under the signature glass dome of Gaylord Palms. These Florida themes are: St. Augustine, Key West, the Everglades, and Emerald Bay. Each area in the resort has its own unique guestrooms and features.

Gaylord Palms Resort Themes

St. Augustine
At St. Augustine you'll walk cobblestone streets that lead you to a replica of the Castillo de San Marcos. This entire area of the resort is decorated in romantic Spanish architecture. The stylized guestrooms all have the classical charm of St. Augustine while at the same time providing all the comforts of home.

Key West
You can experience the festive spirit of the tropics, indoors, in Key West at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center. You can board the 60-foot long S.S. Gaylord and have a taste of the sea at Sunset Sam's Fish camp. You’ll be able to find original works of Key West artists, at the one of a kind Island Style Gallery.
You’ll feel like you’re on a private retreat when you stay at the Everglades in Gaylord Palms. As you walk along the rough wooden pathways over bogs and through the mystic swamp you’ll hear the harmonic songs of the various animal and insect dwellers as they beckon you through the grand cypress trees.
Emerald Bay
In the Emerald Bay you’ll notice that the quote “a hotel within a hotel” describes this section of the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, quite nicely. A statement of luxury, splendor, and sophistication is made by the Spanish Renaissance architecture found throughout this area.
