Auburn/Opelika Marriott at Grand National
FINAL TOUCHES UNDERWAY ON AUBURN/OPELIKA MARRIOTT AT GRAND NATIONAL FULL-PROPERTY RENOVATION
Completed late last year, a renovation of the more than 15,000 square feet of total meeting space and guest lobby areas were freshened, creating a more welcome and contemporary atmosphere. This portion of the renovation saw these areas receive quite a facelift, with new carpet, wall coverings, draperies, and furnishings, all with a local, Auburn flair.
Future plans for later in the year include a luxurious makeover of the Presidential Suite, as well as the hotel’s Lakeview Room Restaurant and Fairways Lounge. The concept behind the revamping of the two dining outlets is to create a more open and inviting feel, connecting the inside with the hotel’s incredible backyard.
“Most return guests have been very excited about the newly renovated product adding to the comfort of the surrounding grounds and recreational components of the expansive feature pool and tennis complex,” Cross said. "We've been here 14 years and want to continue delivering the experience our guests deserve. This renovation does just that.”
