“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

So I am from WV and this is the first time going to The Greenbrier form me and it was so wonderful. So many accommodations and things to do you need to go for at least a few days. Room was a little small but very clean and beautiful inside. My fiance and I enjoyed everything about the hotel; the service, the attendants, the restaurants, and the casino. They even had little shops inside that we picked up a few things for the house before we left.

Room Tip: So the rooms vary in price, and being this was my first trip there I picked one of the smaller rooms...

The service at Prime 44 is very good, jackets required, steaks were pricey ($64-$99 per steak not including sides, salads or dessert). My husband and I both ordered steaks cooked medium. My husbands steak came out rare and mine was barely cooked. I expect more from a place that specializes in steaks with such high prices. While management tried to send the steak back to be cooked properly, there was no other offer to make things right (an offer of a free dessert or something would have been very classy). We won't be back to this restaurant. Other restaurants on the property are amazing! Try Drapers or the main dining room instead.

Drapers doesn't require reservations or jacket/tie. It's actually the best restaurant at The Greenbrier with reasonable prices. The menu offers a varied selection. We had the fried chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes. It was the best tasting fried chicken that I've ever tasted. Other options included hamburgers, salads and sandwiches. This restaurant also offered choices that were healthy, as noted on the menu. Save room for dessert! The ice cream is made on site.

Service on par with Ritz, Four Seasons and Little Palm Island. Delicious food. Great spa. Plenty of activities including world class golf and indoor/outdoor tennis. Smoke free casino reserved for guests of the hotel. Don't miss this very special treasure.

While at the Greenbrier for a golf outing, I discovered that they can make sandwiches on Udi's gf deli-size bread! I ordered the signature Greenbrier Club on lightly toasted gf bread! It was by far the best club sandwich I've have since being gf AND possibly the best ever! Worth a trip to the Greenbrier just to get the club sandwich. BTW, no mention of gf bread on the menu so ask your server.

Room Tip: The hotel is very spacious so the walk to every room is a visual treat, but wear sensible shoes for...

I remember coming to this fine resort for the first time several years ago and marveling at how it knew its niche in elegant hospitality and how to implement it. Classic old southern tradition, quality food steeped in history and well served by the South's finest indigenous wait staff along with its very personalized service teams propelled it into the best of five star quality resorts. It had, and still does have, all the amenities one could wish for and I'm sure its new ownership (The Justice Family) who grasped it out of the hands of some larger hotel chain to retain its southern roots and quality, wish to "modernize it, yet retain the key elements of its classic roots. In our opinion, they are not quite there yet, but we must give them some time to get this done; Rome wasn't built in a day so to speak.
You arrive and you are well greeted, the rooms while dated have had some effort expected to improve but still need work. Our friends had a problem with their bed which had the dents of former guests well defined into the mattress and along with not very comfortable pillows, kept them from comfortable sleep. We had a sink that obviously had been updated but the faucet barely made it to the sink wash area so that when you tried to brush your teeth, it was hard to place your toothbrush under the water flow (new sink, old faucet, bad match). The furniture in our room had seen many a guest and didn't present or exude quality.
There are areas of decay in the building that show the passage of time but detract from the overall beauty of this southern charmer. Wood floors in the main building are in need of refinishing. All this, one could live with if the pricing weren't mirroring a newer model in our minds; its the old price/value thing rearing its ugly head. Restaurants are very expensive. After sampling the Main Dining Room's limited menu which we enjoyed, we went to a wonderful place in nearby Lewisburg (Food & Friends) and had such a great dinner the first night, that we returned to sample the menu again (for about half the price of the Main Dining Room at The Greenbrier but certainly NOT as elegant). There are many outings and business functions at this resort, but that is expected and they handle them well. Over time, perhaps individuals who are not on expense account or business guests will find the value as good as the days of yore and be rewarded with the needed tweaking this beautiful resort so badly needs. We wish them well in this quest and we shall return someday.

Room Tip: "Intermediate" rooms have good space. We were on a golf package at $480/night (no meals...

Visited the Greenbrier on business. A grand hotel in the American tradition. Rich history, beautifully furnished. Stayed in one of the cottages, very nice well appointed. A cottage would be a great place for a family reunion etc. with four sleeping rooms and a large common area with full kitchen. Wonderful meals. Would love to return.
