OK, I'm going to add another super-fun destination in Nashville TN, and it's doable for Marriott folks because you can use Rewards Points.
It's especially fun at Thanksgiving because of the FEAST in the Grand Ballroom (life-sized ice sculptures and accompanying holiday music),
and also at Christmastime, for obvious reasons.

This is THE largest resort hotel in the world without a casino, and you could conceivably walk 1/4 mile from the front desk to the most distant room.
The hotel space exists in and around different atria, and each section is under the glass dome. It's a city under glass.
(Cascades atrium & Delta atrium----Reminds me of Robert Redford's movie "A River Runs Through It".)
The gardens in Delta alone are worth the trip.
We like a balcony room in Delta atrium... highest floor (5th floor I think) is a suite, next few down are regular rooms (floors 1-4).
Top notch resort hotel, and a unique experience for everybody in the family.
There's simply nothing like it. First trip, it's a lot to take in----many just walk around with their mouths wide open in amazement.
(National Harbor's Gaylord Hotel near Alexandria VA is similar, but it's far smaller.)

We literally get lost every time time we're there, and we've stayed at least 6 times over the past 12+ years.
There are several awesome restaurants of varying types, both dress-down casual or upscale fancy, and a huge Sports Bar which offers a full menu.
Some restaurants are inside the atria, and some are in other connected buildings off the atria (we laughingly call those the "suburbs").
There are several nice shops too. Some of the sidewalks are like pathways in the sky, looking down at the gardens & waterfalls,
the river, or some of the restaurants. Walkways, bridges, and escalators are everywhere, really a spectacle.

Is the sculpture from the Pepsi Headquarters or from Storm King Art Center?

it also looks like you visited the Catskills or Adirondacks recently.

The photos are from Lake Placid and the surrounding area. We are in Lake Placid now. We are fortunate to visit at the peak of the foliage. Weather has been perfect. The mountain is Whiteface Mountain a/k/a Iceface Mountain when the snow freezes to ice during the winter afternoons.

Eventually, we would like to make it over to the east side for the autumn colors. The colors are nice here in the PNW but we have more evergreen trees that leafy.
