FRANKLIN, TN--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2011) - 'Best of the South' honorably describes the outstanding service and meticulous accommodations found at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs hotel, recently recognized as one of the top meeting and event facilities in the South by Meetings Focus South magazine.

Striving to ensure flawless Franklin, TN event planning, this distinctive hotel was selected for the magazine's prestigious "2011 Best of the South Award" as the result of reviews by some of the nation's most respected meeting planners who voted the hotel an outstanding facility. The Southern competition was strong and included hotel properties in the Southern United States, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. Readers were asked to choose their favorite properties from those they had used during the past year and evaluate them considering key factors such as quality of meeting space, guest rooms, staff, service, food and beverage, amenities, activities and value.

"You should be very proud to receive this honor, and know that the competition was steep," said Karen Smith, Vice President/Group Publisher of Meetings Focus South in congratulating hotel staff.
