We stayed at the Greenbrier in the 80's before anyone knew about the hidden bunkers--we even watched movies and listened to lectures in the 'auditorium' which would have been the congressional chamber in the event of a nuclear event. Wow! The tour of the facility is fascinating--amazing how the bunker was hidden in plain sight for 30+ years. Our guide... More

Who knew a facility like this existed for 30 years with no one knowing about it? Intriguing tour of bunker facilities meant to house government during nuclear attack. Very knowledgeable guide gave a fascinating one and on e half hour tour of the facilities. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys history.

two things - the sheer size, over 100,000 square feet. despite its secrecy, it was actually used as a public space. So well disguised, no one knew its true purpose. They'll explain

It is definitely worth doing the bunker tour while visiting. Such an amazing walk through American history and overview of the Cold War for those who may not remember or even lived it. Tour guide was very knowledgeable.

What will be seen on the tour is similar to what would be seen on a documentary special of the Greenbrier. The Greenbrier is important to America's history as a resort, as a health spa, as a military hospital, as interior design, architecture and as a secret bunker for the United States Congress. The tour is a walking tour some... More

A very interesting tour. The idea of hiding this project in "Plain site" was interesting. The tour guide was very informative and helped make the tour more interesting.

Way over priced!!! I didn't think it was worth the price.The inside of the hotel is beautiful. The prices of the hotel are very expensive. Could not afford to stay there.

We took a tour of the bunker that was built in secret under the Greenbrier Hotel back in the '50s. This bunker was paid for by our taxes and cost millions and millions of dollars. The purpose was to hide the President and the congress if there was a nuclear bomb. It was kept secret for 30 years and now... More
