I just got back from an AMAZING girls weekend at The Greenbrier. This is probably my 5th or 6th time at America's Resort and it is always SUCH a treat. It's a great spot to go with family (all ages), significant other or just the girls. We loved being greeted with champagne upon check-in by very friendly front desk personnel who were excited for us to be there. We LOVED our pink and green room on the 1100 floor! We were in the Governor's Suite corner and it was such a perfect room for 4 girls to be in. PLENTY of room from us and our things. Only complaint about the room would be the shower faucet. The handle was loose and it wouldn't stay on a temperature setting. It would fall all the way to scalding. Thankfully, a handy stretchy head-band fixed the problem for the weekend, because we didn't find it such an issue that we had to tell the hotel staff right away. We loved the room too much! We enjoyed a drink during Happy Hour at Twelve Oaks in the casino. The wait staff wasn't super, but I believe they had more people come to happy hour than anticipated and were a little overwhelmed. Wasn't a big deal at all. While getting ready for dinner, as you can imagine 4 girls would, we probably had too many things plugged in and blew the fuse in our room. The FRIENDLIEST girls ever knocked on our door literally right as the fuse blew to do our turn down service. Melanie and Jaleesha were absolute wonderful and made our night. They called the electrician (he also was VERY nice!) for us and he was there right away. While we waited, they waited with us and were adorable and fun. They are both from White Sulphur and have been friends since high school and now work at The Greenbrier together. They were darling and were so helpful and even left us a sweet note the next night. I hope this gets back to them, or that someone in a higher ranking shares this with them and recognizes them for their wonderful hospitality! They deserve it! Friday night we had a delicious Italian meal at The Forum. We loved the spaghetti and meatballs and the alfredo. The small sized portion was PERFECT (you could have the large portion if desired!). We had a great time at the casino on Friday night. The dealers were all very friendly and helpful to us "new" gamblers. The wait staff in the casino was great and very attentive! Saturday we had breakfast in the main dining room. This wasn't the best experience. I waited 15 minutes for an omelet. The chef said he needed more eggs and we were slightly confused by that as there was a basket FULL of eggs right on his table and what appeared to be a pitcher full of already beaten eggs and another of egg whites. Anyway, once I finally got my omelet, it was delicious, but my friends were already finished with their meals by the time I got back to the table. The staff did apologize for the wait. We worked out for a bit at the treadmills by the swimming pool. I do like that they've added these 5 machines and free weights here so you don't have to walk all the way to the tennis courts to workout (brrr!!). We enjoyed the shops and had lunch at Draper's. I have loved Draper's since I was little and this experience took my by surprise. Our waiter at Draper's was just not good. He spoke very softly and had an accent. He didn't succeed in getting any adjustments to our orders correct. I asked for extra peppers in my quesadillas and got zero peppers and hardly any chicken. Another friend ordered the chicken salad on a bun, and it came on toast. That was a bit of a bummer. But we still love Draper's. No better milkshake and darling, quintessential Dorothy Draper environment! We went bowling before Happy Hour and it was SO fun! We had no problem getting a lane around 4:30 in the afternoon on Saturday and we were also able to watch the Kentucky game on the TV in the bowling alley. We enjoyed drinks, fun music on the jukebox, great staff and 2 games of (bad) bowling! Saturday night we had dinner reservations at Prime 44 West. We arrive 5 minutes late to our reservation and ended up not being seating for 30 minutes. This may have been our fault, but we aren't sure. They did give us free drinks at the bar while we waited and bartender Charlotte was great. Dinner was delicious and we had great and attentive staff. We had the filet, shrimp cocktail, boursin mashed potatoes, lobster mashed potatoes and chocolate peanut butter cake for dessert that I will talk about forever. It was amazing! It came with banana ice cream that half of our table loved and the other half loved it with vanilla ice cream! Following dinner we had more fun in the casino. Upon calling it a night, we ordered a midnight snack of pizza to our room. One of our girl friends that was with us is named Hollis and it topped off our fun night when the room service was delivered by a kind man named Hollis, too! He let us take a picture of him with our Hollis and told us he had only met 2 other Hollis' in his lifetime and they were both girls. He was so sweet. We loved meeting Hollis. Sunday morning we had the BEST breakfast sandwiches from the Greenbrier Gourmet. Highly recommend their English muffin breakfast sandwich! It was perfect and quick. Great iced coffee, chocolate chip cookie (seriously, the best), and caramel machiato, too! Overall, we had a wonderful an absolutely perfect girls weekend at The Greenbrier! We were very well fed, entertained and taken care of in all aspects of our visit! We will be back very, very soon!
