Rollaways cannot be added to any room with two beds. Rates are available from Wednesday through Sunday of convention week.

Junior Suites are $205 per night, plus tax and resort fee. Executive Suite Parlors are $330 per night, plus tax and resort fee. Deluxe Suite Parlors are $446 per night, plus tax and resort fee. All suites are held on a first come, first served basis based on the date and time requested in the registration system. There are a limited number of suites available. Although rare, there is a possibility that the suite may not be located with the main block of rooms for a group. The Executive and Deluxe Suite Parlors do not have any beds and will hold about 30 (Executive) to 60 (Deluxe) people for meetings. The Junior Suite has one king bed and will accommodate up to 15 people for meetings.
King and Double Rooms: About 20% of the rooms provided for our convention will have a king bed. If we do not request enough king rooms, they will be assigned as necessary. Please help by requesting as many king rooms as your group can use.
All rooms have a coffee maker, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, safe and mini-refrigerators. Baby cribs are available at no extra charge.
The room block process for requesting hotel rooms is in effect. This means that groups will have a block of rooms that will be available to them only from the start of registration until the room block deadline date of January 5, 2024 at Midnight (Central). The room blocks for each group that attended the 2023 convention will be the number of actual rooms used each night based on reports from the hotel, less any rooms or room nights dropped after the registration deadline.
Reservations and Changes:
**Please do not call the hotel directly for reservations or changes.**
So that the hotel can accurately block your group’s rooms, you must have the total number of king and double/double rooms indicated by the registration deadline. After the registration deadline, group leaders will be able to make changes to their group’s hotel reservations in the registration portal until 8:00 AM (Central) on February 26, 2024. The information in your reservation database on February 26 will be considered your final request. Any changes, except room cancellations, made after February 26 will be accommodated, if possible, but are not guaranteed. Please make every effort to have all reservations finalized by the February 26 deadline. Adding rooms after this date may not be possible. If they are able to be added, they will most likely NOT be near your group’s other rooms. Please request all rooms that you will need by February 26, 2024. Please note that any cancellations MUST be made no later than five days prior to arrival. Any no-shows or cancellations after that will be charged one night’s room and tax. Please make sure that all requested rooms are used to avoid these penalties.
All requests for changes to hotel reservations must be requested through the online registration system.
The group leader should choose a person to be the hotel room coordinator. This person should be the first to arrive and the last to leave. Your hotel room coordinator can check in and check out your group.
Early Payment Option:
The hotel will provide a copy of your bill 1-2 weeks prior to convention. This gives you an opportunity to verify that the hotel has the correct number and type of rooms. You may pre-pay to avoid delays at check-in. This service is ONLY available if you include an accurate FAX number or email address and tax exempt status in the Group Registration section of the online registration.
*If you provide the hotel with your congregation’s 501(c)(3) designation letter from your state or if you receive a tax exempt certification from the state of Tennessee, you will be exempt from the 9.25% sales tax. You will still have to pay the 6% hotel tax and the $2.50 city tax. The hotel must receive the letter/certificate prior to March 13, even if you have used it in past years. You should scan and email it to Stacey Eakes (email@example.com). If you have questions, please call the Tennessee State Department of Revenue at 615-253-0600.
Self-parking fees at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel are included in the room rate. Valet parking will be billed at the prevailing rate at the time of our convention.
