    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.

    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!
    Watch out with the contracts though... they'll stick you with lots of little extra charges if you're not careful
