Rep Power: 0 ZR-1 Dude is on a distinguished road
Not sure if this forum is the correct one, let me know.

I am in the process of scheduling our trip to ITA in Nashville. I was talking to Opryland and the group rate is $194 for a traditional room. AAA rate is $179. Why wouldn't I book the cheaper rate. She was like - you won't be part of the group and won't be in the block of rooms. What else do I get for $20 a day? The lower rate is attractive, but I don't want to miss out on anything.

Thanks,
D.

Just guessing here.. but last year items were delivered door to door.. I assuming that these were only delivered to that block... Is it worth the price? Only you can decide...

I think Tiki is right....some samples left in your room and a key card with advertisement on it. I don't know of any other difference. I'd stay where the best rate is, the place is so big and there are people everywhere....I don't think you will get left out of anything.

Again this depends on what these items are worth to you.. Last year a lot of California Tan new products were delivered like Total Submersion...There were inhouse commercials on your tv... It is convient to be at the hotel.. but as Teresa says there are many hotels nearby if you just looking for a better deal...

Yes that is what I thought......the non-group rate is probably just in a different wing...no big deal.

Group rates are higher than promo rates. Flights and Hotels are higher if you tell them you are part of the convention. Keep that in mind when you book for Vegas.

went to Nashville last year we stayed at the Radisson hotel opryland across the street from Gaylord opryland. The walk wasn't bad 3 mins... or you could take the bus for free..it runs every half hour it's faster to walk. The room was 125.00 a night... shop for a rate .. try www.orbitz.com
go to this site to see the map..

I stay at a Comfort Inn down the street (less than 5 minutes) and it is about $75 a night. For that difference, I don't mind driving and buying my own 'goody bag'. Just me being cheap!!
