Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center
1501 Gaylord Trl, Grapevine, TX 76051
If you are looking for a small town B&B to go to in Grapevine for one of their festivals or to just window shop on the historic Main Street area, then the the Gaylord might not be what you are looking for. Although it is just a very short trip over to the Main Street area and I would still recommend that, the Gaylord is basically a city unto itself. The glass ceiling is so high in the main area and the vegetation so complete that you do almost feel like you are outside. They have nice rooms, a large conference facility, and some good restaurants (at which you definitely pay for the quality). The whole building complex is very very impressive. Additionally, there is the Glass Cactus which is their bar/restaurant/club on the lake which is pretty neat. I definitely recommend staying at the Gaylord.
Even though it is huge, if you get claustrophobic by the Truman Show-ness of the whole complex, you can make it easily over to Grapevine Mills mall, or Bass Pro Shops, or the Cowboys golf course (very nice but pretty expensive), or the city of Grapevine golf course, or the Main Street area. It is my understanding that the Gaylord doesn't run the same shuttles that they used to to the surrounding areas but that in the early Fall, I think I heard September the city of Grapevine is picking up the slack with a more complete system.
