Priceless pub for Gaylord's ICE!

Gaylord Entertainment President Dave Kloeppel this week told USA Today travel writer Barbara De Lollis that "the sky's the limit" following an upgrade — courtesy of characters from the popular Shrek and Madagascar movies — of the company's popular ICE! shows at its resorts. The newly opened attraction at the Gaylord National resort outside D.C. gets the USA Today slideshow treatment here.

Gaylord Hotels shows photogenic side

Gaylord Hotels has announced a new strategic partnership with KODAK Event Imaging Solutions that will enable Gaylord hotel guests — as company officials glowingly note — "to depart with 'KODAK Moments' to last a lifetime."

Under the partnership, KODAK now has exclusive rights to photograph guests at Gaylord Hotels in Nashville; National Harbor, Md.; Kissimmee, Fla.; and Grapevine, Texas.

Roving photographers at the hotels will capture special moments of guests in pictures, compliments of Gaylord Hotels and KODAK Event Imaging Solutions. Guests can then purchase the photo prints and gifts as special keepsakes of their stay. 

In addition, special photo opportunities will be offered exclusively to Hotel Holiday Package participants. 

“Gaylord Hotels are known as the places to celebrate life’s special occasions,” said Rich Maradik, CMO of Gaylord Hotels. “Over the past few years, we have engaged in a few, selective partnerships with an eye toward enhancing those experiences to make them even more meaningful for our guests. KODAK Event Imaging Solutions is a very exciting extension of the Gaylord Hotel experience.”
