It seems to be transition season across the pond, as Alabama’s Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa finishes a three-year transformation and joins Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott’s group of 150+ unique properties. First opened in 1847, the Grand Hotel has been known as the Queen of Southern Resorts for generations. The 405-room resort is known for exceptional service, majestic oaks and beautiful sunsets over Mobile Bay. During the three-year renovation, the resort’s guest rooms, meeting space, restaurants, spa, golf, pier, pools and grounds were tastefully updated.
“With this stunning transformation nearly complete, the historic Grand Hotel enters its next chapter with its Autograph Collection distinction,” said Tony Davis, president of the RTJ Resort Collection. “We are debuting a modern sanctuary of golf, tennis, beach, pools and spa filled with gracious southern charm and attentiveness. Here, as it has for over 170 years, the Grand Life beckons with hospitality and warmth flowing through the resort in cheerful abundance.”
