Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel Ranked #1 for Golf in North America

PRATTVILLE, AL--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - For recreation at Marriott hotels in North America, those looking for the best guest satisfaction should head to Alabama. In addition to having the top Marriott spa globally in 2010 (Spa at the Grand Hotel), Alabama has the top golf location at the Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel & Conference Center at Capitol Hill. Part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Resort Collection, three other Alabama locations also join Capitol Hill in Marriott's Top 10 for customer satisfaction: Muscle Shoals, Auburn/Opelika and Point Clear. Marriott has 25 golf locations in the United States and Canada.

"The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail started just under 20 years ago and the addition of Marriott hotels has enhanced the experience of our guests," said John Cannon, president of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. "Having the four Top 10 golf locations, including the #1 spot, plus Marriott's best spa makes Alabama quite a destination for guests wanting great customer service and a real value." The RTJ Golf Trail has consistently been ranked one of Alabama's top tourist attractions since opening in 1992.

Marriott International uses a third-party company specializing in guest satisfaction to rate all areas of the hotels, including golf and spas. Both the RTJ Golf Trail and its Resort Collection are owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama.
