OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

As the PGA Tour Barbasol Championship prepares to tee off at the RTJ Grand National golf course, the hotel on the grounds there is celebrating a prestigious honor. The Auburn/Opelika Marriott at Grand National received the Four Diamond Award rating from AAA.

"Fewer than six percent of the nearly 28,000 properties approved by AAA achieve this prestigious distinction," said Michael Petrone, content development director for AAA publishing. This is the first time for this honor to be granted to a hotel in the Auburn/Opelika area.

"The Four Diamond recognition was the result of the Retirement Systems of Alabama's investing in a world-class hotel," said Kevin Cross, general manager for the Auburn/Opelika Marriott. "In addition to great structure r and amenities, our Associates continues to go the extra to bring this hotel to life."

Triple-A's diamond rating system is the only system that uses professionally trained inspectors to evaluate each property. It uses guidelines available to all establishments and evaluates more properties than any other rating entity.

"Four and Five Diamond lodgings represent the best the hospitality industry has to offer," said AAA Spokesperson Clay Ingram. "These properties consistently deliver a high level of personal comfort and attention to every guest. To achieve and maintain these ratings is a commendable accomplishment

Montgomery's Renaissance Hotel &Spa and Wetumpka's Wind Creek Casino &Hotel are also AAA Four Diamond hotels.
