Jan. 14, 2011--Owner Gaylord Entertainment plans to spend $7 million upgrading a companion hotel it owns near its flagship property.
The Radisson Hotel at Opryland will undergo a multimillion-dollar face lift that includes renovating all guest rooms, meeting rooms, the property's atrium and lobby.
The 303-room hotel on Music Valley Drive will stay open during the renovations, which should be complete by late spring.
The hotel is directly across the street from the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.
The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center was closed during flooding in May and reopened Nov. 15 after a $270 million renovation. The Radisson didn't flood.
Other renovations planned include new wall and window treatments, bathroom finishes and fixtures, a face lift of the entryway, and converting a space that had been leased by Applebee's into a hotel-run restaurant.
