Remington Hotel Corporation Recognized by AAA

Remington Hotel
Corporation, the premier service provider to the hospitality industry,
announced that the Marietta Conference Center and Resort has received the
prestigious Four Diamond Award rating from AAA Auto Club South, AAA’s
third largest affiliate, for the sixth consecutive year. The award
represents the highest levels of quality and service for lodging and
dining experiences. Diamond Award winners are recognized for consistently
delivering premier experiences complete with superior personal service,
first-class amenities and impressive surroundings. Only three percent of
AAA-rated lodges and restaurants receive this high level of excellence. Remington also hosted the AAA Auto Club South’s Four and Five Diamond
Award Presentation at the Marietta Conference Center and Resort on Monday,
January 31. Among metro Atlanta properties and restaurants, there were 22
Four Diamond recipients and 5 Five Diamond recipients. Spurgeon
Richardson, President and CEO of the Atlanta Convention and Visitors
Bureau, served as the guest speaker at one of the most eagerly anticipated
and coveted awards dinners in the hospitality industry.

Located on Powder Springs Street one-half mile from historic Marietta
Square and conveniently located only 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta, the
conference center boasts 20,000 square feet of meeting space with 19
dedicated conference rooms, including a 6,500-square-foot ballroom. Each
room features state-of-the-art amenities designed to maximize meeting
productivity and exceed all IACC (International Association of Conference
Centers) requirements. The resort features an 18-hole par 71 championship
golf course and 200 magnificently appointed rooms that offer traditional
furnishings with a rich mahogany finish that are reminiscent of the style
and elegance of 1850’s Georgia.

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Sharkey, Chief Operating Officer of
Remington, stated, “This is a prestigious award that we are honored to
receive on behalf of the City of Marietta and our team of highly qualified
