Gaylord Entertainment announced today several other assets will be transferred to Marriott International.
According to a press release, The General Jackson Showboat, Gaylord Springs Golf Links and Wildhorse Saloon are scheduled to convert to Marriott's management, effective Oct. 1. The Radisson Hotel Opryland will transition Dec. 1 and be renamed Inn at Opryland, a Gaylord Hotel.
This transaction follows Gaylord's previous announcement that it is selling the Gaylord Hotels brand and the rights to manage its four Gaylord hotels to Marriott.
The Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and WSM-AM radio station will continue to be both owned and managed by Gaylord.
"These attractions are important elements of the Nashville tourism experience and embraced by the tens of thousands of visitors who come to Nashville each year," said Colin V. Reed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Gaylord Entertainment, in the press release.
"We are excited to begin managing these attractions as well as the Inn at Opryland," said David Grissen, President of The Americas for Marriott International. "Historically, these assets have performed well as part of the Gaylord portfolio, and we believe that they will continue to offer our group and leisure customers unique entertainment options."
