Gaylord Opryland Hotel, Nashville
One of the way to maintain a climate in atriums is the glass ceiling supported with metal bars. It is like you are under open sky just wind doesn't blow at you.
The waterfalls are falling from rocks, I assume natural.
I thoroughly enjoyed walking around the hotel. With it's "river" and waterfalls, shops and eateries it's hard to believe it's a hotel. You can spend a quite a few hours just walking around taking in all the sights.

Walking through the main garden area alone is worth the visit. You will be impressed. It stands out strongly in my mind, and it's been 10 years since I've seen it.
Hotel next to Grand Ole Opry. Very Expensive to stay in --- $200 or more. But it is worth a walkthrough. The place is huge with large indoor courtyards with shops and restaurants.
At Christmas time they light up the whole area and it is absolutely gorgeous..You can drive through it or get out and walk..it is beautiful
