2014 was my first trip back to The Greenbrier since it changed ownership and added a casino. Fortunately, the casino is pretty much invisible unless you are looking for it and the rest of the hotel remains the same as it always has been. The decor is a little over-the-top for my taste. I was there for a conference and I think they fell down a bit on the food, especially hors d'oeuvres (nothing special about soggy phyllo cups filled with chicken salad in the hot sun). Seating at breakfast was slow due to too much use of the computer at the hostess stand, as well as a curious system of hand writing out little slips of paper for the waitstaff before you are seated. While I appreciate an international staff, I often felt as if my English was not understood all they well when asking about menu items and placing orders. I'm a regular wine drinker who knows my way around a wine list, but I found only a few recognizable bottles on this one and even fewer prices under $100. In addition to resort fees, the management has added an additional 'foundation fee" that gets added to just about every purchase. The Greenbrier has always been a premium-price, but based on my recent visit, I'd say its less than justified by the food and the service.
