The Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs

Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
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.

  • Superb! We were passing through and stopped to have lunch at Drapers. The food and service were excellent. We had a club sandwich and burger, both delicious. Walked around the grounds and public areas. Did a little shopping. I would recommend a stop at the Greenbrier anytime you're in the area.
  • Seriously, it's the Greenbrier. How could it be rates fewer than five stars? Such a beautiful, historical spot. Dinner in the main restaurant was delicious, wandering the ballroom and tea rooms, lounges, halls and so on was good for hours of casual, relaxing entertainment. Our room was ultra comfortable and if we're ever rich enough we'll come for more than a day.
