The Auburn Marriott Opelika Resort and Spa at Grand National was named Marriott’s best spa in North America for 2019, according to data recently released by Marriott International. The Spa at Grand National was not the only Alabama spa to receive rave reviews.

While the resort spas in Palm Beach, Las Vegas, Grand Cayman, Hawaii, St. Kitts, Cancun, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami. and Costa Rica, certainly are first class, Alabama is home to some of Marriott’s best spas throughout its various brands. For Marriott spas, the Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa finished fourth out of 71 in 2019, just three spots behind the Spa at Grand National. In Marriott’s Autograph Collection, the spa at the Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa ranked second in North America, out of 37 locations. Within Renaissance Hotels, Alabama’s three spas scored very well for customer satisfaction, finishing at 9, 10 and 11.

“All six of our spas across Alabama are known for offering exceptional experiences in spectacular settings,” said Tony Davis, president of PCH Hotels & Resorts. “From custom massages and facials to body and nail treatments, the RTJ Spa Trail features exceptional hospitality and innovative treatments for our guests. They leave our spas relaxed, rested and rejuvenated. ” These six spas are part of the hotels/resorts owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama and associated with the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
