Grapevine’s Gaylord Texan Resort is known as a luxurious spot for visitors, whether for business or pleasure.

Apparently it’s not too bad on employees, either.

The hotel and convention center checked in at No. 2 among large companies in the Dallas Morning News’ Top 100 Places to Work 2016 list released Thursday.

Other Tarrant County employers weren’t far behind.

Century 21 Judge Fite Co., with offices across the Metroplex, was No. 3 on the large companies list. PrimeLending, A PlainsCapital Company was No. 5, while Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, with several Fort Worth locations, was No. 6.

Fort Worth’s Cook Children’s Health Care System was 11th, and the JPS Health Network was 30th, among large companies. TopGolf, which is scheduled to open in Fort Worth next year, was 26th.

The Morning News also included midsize and small companies on the list.

Century 21 Judge Fite earned the highest marks for “Best direction.”

The Gaylord Texan topped the “Best execution” category, which makes sense when you can feature a 2 million-pound ice display in the middle of Texas.

Five thousand blocks of ice carved and arranged by ice sculptors from Harbin, China are on display at the Gaylord Texan Resort for their annual ICE! show. Enter the nine degree tent with gloves and a warm winter jacket from Nov. 11 through Dec. 31
