Create an itinerary including The Greenbrier
The Greenbrier is a palatial luxury resort located in the Allegheny Mountains near White Sulphur Springs in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, in the United States.
Since 1778, visitors have traveled to this part of the state to "take the waters" of the area. Today, The Greenbrier is situated on 11000acre of land with 710 guest rooms, 20 restaurants and lounges, more than 55 indoor and outdoor activities and sports, and 36 retail shops. 1800 "ladies and gentlemen" offer authentic southern hospitality to guests.
The current Greenbrier was built in 1913 by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway and was owned for much of its history by that company and its successors, including the CSX Corporation. Following years of heavy losses, CSX placed the hotel into bankruptcy in 2009. Justice Family Group, LLC, a company owned by local entrepreneur Jim Justice, subsequently bought the property and guaranteed all debts, resulting in dismissal of the bankruptcy. Justice promised to return the hotel to its former status as a five-star resort and to introduce "tasteful" gambling for guests as a revenue enhancer. The Greenbrier Hotel Corp. today operates as a subsidiary of Justice's company.
The last U.S. president to stay at The Greenbrier during a presidency was Dwight D. Eisenhower. A total of 26 presidents have stayed at the hotel.

  • I had the pleasure of spending a weekend at the Greenbrier recently and I absolutely understand why I have heard about the resort my entire life. The resort itself is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice, but the staff is what really makes this place shine. From check-in to check-out, every staff member I encountered was courteous, attentive, helpful, and accommodating. I would swear they are magical - whenever we returned to our room it was already tidied up to perfection with a fresh bucket of ice waiting for us. They truly go above and beyond to ensure every guest has the best experience, and this is also true of the staff in the steakhouse and in the main dining room (Oh, the food! Each bite of every single meal was succulent, rich, and perfect). My grandfather loved going to the resort every year on his way to the Preakness, and it is easy to see why. Do not miss any opportunity to stay at the Greenbrier resort - I can assure you that I will not, and I will be actively seeking opportunities to stay there again in the future.
  • Remember to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking any stay. They compare countless booking websites and normally will have prices much cheaper than others! You're welcome :)! This resort is one of the highest rated in the area. I've been coming here for a very long time. If you choose this place you for sure won't regret it. An elegant and inviting hotel with a warm & friendly home feel! Everything was superb! All the staff were helpful, knowledgeable and very welcoming! Beautiful decor and interior spaces. The landscaping is fantastic! Every excursion/ experience we had was memorable! What a hidden gem!
