Exceptional service and world-class amenities create the perfect recipe for great meetings at the historic Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa. Named a South's Best resort by Southern Living in 2017, the Grand Hotel is in the process of transforming into an even more spectacular destination. "Honors from national travel and meeting publications are a true testament to our exceptional staff," said Scott Tripoli, general manager of the Grand Hotel. "With our major transformation, meeting and leisure guests can expect an even better experience. From redesigning meeting space and the 405 guest rooms to enhancing the resort's legendary service and culinary options, this historic legend will take Southern hospitality to a higher level," he said. "Over the coming months, buildings will be transformed one at a time to minimize guest disruption during the process. In April 2018, the Grand Hotel will reach an even higher pinnacle of hospitality excellence when the resort joins Marriott's Autograph Collection of hotels." The Grand Hotel offers 23 meeting rooms with 37,000 square feet of meeting space. The 9,750-square-foot Grand Ballroom with beachfront patio can accommodate 1,000 for meetings and 1,400 for receptions. The 5,000-square-foot Azalea Ballroom divides into 6 sections and can accommodate 500 for receptions. The 4,473-square-foot Magnolia Ballroom accommodates 470 for meetings. All meeting space will be completely renovated by spring 2018. From restaurants and lounges, golf courses, tennis courts and pools to a 20,000-square-foot European-style spa, this resort boasts world- class amenities for guests to enjoy. Dine at one of the seven restaurants and lounges. History lovers will enjoy the daily cannon firing at 4 p.m. followed by afternoon tea in the lobby. The Grand Hotel is 46 miles from the Mobile Regional Airport and 59 miles from Pensacola International Airport.
