“This award is the result of an exceptional team pulling together through a three-year transformation which raised the hospitality level offered by the Queen of Southern Resorts,” said Scott Tripoli, general manager of the Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa. “With the commitment of our owners (Retirement Systems of Alabama), a great leadership team and the best hospitality associates in the business, the historic Grand Hotel reigns again, said Tripoli. “We are honored to receive the award and look forward to welcoming guests from around the world to the Grand Hotel.”
Throughout the transformation, the Grand Hotel was careful to maintain her charm and traditions while providing the updates today’s hotel guests require. Past guests have loved her improvements. New guests have fallen in love with her oaks, sunsets, staff and serenity.
