I can not put into words how beautiful my wedding was at the Marriott Grand National in May 2008. From my initial meeting with Jenna Yates all the way up to my husband and I leaving the wedding for our honeymoon, everything was meticulously organized and carried through. Jenna and all the members of the Grand National team are truly equipped with the means to ensure that your wedding day is a success!!!!! Thank you Marriott of Grand National for making my wedding a day I will truly remember. (It only took me 2 and a half years to write this review, but I just ran up on this link). Thanks!Sent on 01/04/2011

The staff at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel and Conference Center are an absolute pleasure to work with. From booking the ballroom for my reception to booking a block of rooms for the wedding party and out-of-town guests, they have gone out of their way to accommodate and provide exceptional customer service.Sent on 07/27/2015

This place was wonderful! I was a little nervous to begin with, and you do have to stay on top of things to make sure that they're getting done, but day of I couldn't have been any happier!Sent on 08/18/2008
Watch out with the contracts though... they'll stick you with lots of little extra charges if you're not careful
So glad that we have the Marriott at Grand National here in the Auburn/Opelika area! Their service is fantastic and their facility is beautiful. I love having weddings at the Marriott!
