Before heading down to Texas, Matt and I planned one big date night at the Gaylord Texan to see their ICE exhibit. ICE was amazing (we'll get to that later), but the hotel alone would have been worth the trip. It is BEAUTIFUL.
The view from the lake (the hotel is this big from every angle, by the way):
If you couldn't tell from the pictures, all of the actual rooms surround the atrium. This means that every room has a view--either of the amazing Gaylord Texan itself or of the pretty lake and resort surrounding the hotel.
We walked around for a good while, just enjoying all there is to see in the atrium, and then went to the ICE exhibit.
Pretty sure if we can ever afford the pricetag, we'll be back for an extended stay.
