A massive, three-year transformation was completed in August 2018 and the property became part of Marriott's Autograph Collection Hotels. Grandest Aspects: First opened in 1847, this charming resort is known for ex- ceptional service, Southern charm, majestic oaks, tropical pools and spectacu- lar sunsets over Mobile Bay. The guest rooms, meeting spaces, restaurants, spa, golf courses, pier, pools, beaches and grounds have been transformed and the resort recently regained its AAA Four Diamond designation. Luxurious Amenities: Reimagined and updated spaces include The Spa at the Grand, Historic Julep Point and the ballroom patio. The legendary Bucky's Lounge has expanded outdoor seating options around firepits and the RTJ Dogwood golf course and golf practice facilities have been enhanced. Curated Experiences: The Nall Suite and Nall Mezzanine Gallery feature the works of the Alabama artist known as Nall, who is available to speak to groups and share insights to his artwork.
