The Opryland Hotel is among the victims of the devastating Nashville flood, and Opryland Hotel flood photos provide a glimpse at the devastation and activity.

Part of the Gaylord Opryland Resort, the Opryland Hotel was evacuated and has been closed until further notice.

The Opryland Hotel first opened in 1977 adjacent to the Opryland Theme Park. It is Nashville's largest and most prestigious hotel, well known for its entertainment and luxurious build.
