Point Clear, AL (PRWEB) September 26, 2007
Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa is honored to receive the highly acclaimed 2007 Best of South Award from Meetings Media as chosen by the readership of Meetings South magazine.
As an accolade voted on by the readers of Meetings South, made mostly of top national meeting planners, this distinction is regarded as a great achievement.
"Competition was steep this year," explains Kevin Hellmich, vice president of sales at the famed Alabama resort, "We're extremely proud of the presence that the Grand has created in Alabama and in the South as a whole in regards to our distinctive meeting facilities."
With hundreds of properties in the running, the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort was named one of the top 56 properties in the Southern United States, the Caribbean, and the Islands for the Annual Best of South Award. To nominate a facility voters had to have used the space in the past two years, and receiving this laurel of being named an outstanding meeting facility was no easy task. The following were the eight voting categories in determining the ranking of these winning hotels and the Grand's Alabama meeting facility was found with exceptional ratings:
- Quality of Meeting Space
- Food & Beverage
Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa is not only known for its cutting-edge corporate spaces, but also for its remarkable Golf Club and acclaimed Alabama spa. Boasting two golf courses on the Robert Trent Jones Trail and a 20,000 square foot European-style spa, whether guests come for a corporate meeting or a leisurely vacation, there is more to discover than the 37,000 square feet of magnificent meetings and event space.
