The Greenbrier Resort Takes Players on a Trip Back in Time

Pulling up to the historic Greenbrier, America’s Resort, it’s not hard to imagine your vehicle’s horsepower being actual horsepower. Since 1778, just 2 years after our nation was formed, The Greenbrier has welcomed guests to their beautiful, serene, 11,000-acre luxury resort, nestled in the heart of the breathtaking Allegheny Mountains.

To say that The Greenbrier exudes southern charm and hospitality is like saying Southerners kind of like sweet tea and cheese grits. The Greenbrier is truly a magical resort—thoughtfully weaving its history of tradition and excellence with state of the art, world-class amenities offered by a very select few resorts worldwide. Step inside and be transported to that magical time when ladies and gentlemen dressed for dinner and took strolls to White Sulphur Spring–the natural mineral springs, which first attracted guests looking to “take the waters” to improve their health. Soak in the atmosphere and admire the vintage décor, transformed by none other than the acclaimed Ms. Dorothy Draper—hailed by Architectural Digest as “a true artist of the design world [who] became a celebrity in the modern sense of the word, virtually creating the image of the decorator in the popular mind.”

The Greenbrier is an absolute treasure—one that boasts distinguished guests including 27 U.S. Presidents, royalty, and celebrities—and now, thanks to URComped, you have the opportunity to experience all this resort has to offer—first-rate tennis courts, fine dining, exquisite accommodations, and of course, the “18th Best Casino in America,” as named by TripAdvisor reviews.

The Greenbrier’s casino is truly unique. The Casino Club is open only to registered overnight guests as well as attendees of an event or convention when more than 400 rooms are occupied. (There are also membership packages available). This gives the casino an exclusive feel and ambiance. You won’t have to look far to find your favorite games, either. The Casino Club boasts 37 tables, featuring Blackjack, Roulette, Three Card Poker, Texas Hold ‘em, Mini-Baccarat, and Craps. There are 320 different slot machines and FanDuel Sportsbook—which affords members and resort guests the opportunity to place bets on all major U.S. sports, including baseball, soccer, football, basketball, golf, and much more. For those of us who enjoy online gaming, FanDuel and The Greenbrier have developed a new online app that allows sports betters to place wagers electronically on all major sports inside the borders of West Virginia! (Learn more about the online wagering experience at: https://www.fanduel.com/sportsbook-wv). 

You will never be bored at The Greenbrier. With more than 55 indoor and outdoor experiences available for you to enjoy, the resort becomes your personal playground. Drop the kids off at the Full Day Program, where they will make new friends as they participate in activities such as Geocaching, hiking, fishing, and crafts, while you take in a round of golf on their 4 world-class golf courses. Find your bliss as you unwind with a relaxing spa treatment. Indulge yourself in some retail therapy—with their many unique boutique shops, you will have no trouble finding the perfect gift for those back home—and a nice little memento for yourself to include with your big wins in the Casino Club! Golf Course at the Greenbrier-Pictured Right- Courtesy of the Greenbrier

 The Greenbrier is exceptional, there is no doubt. And exceptional is the perfect word to describe the incredible selection of restaurants located at the resort. With 20 restaurants and lounges, you will never run out of options—from breakfast in bed with room service to happy hour specials and fine dining. The choice is yours at The Greenbrier! And now, because of URComped’s amazing hosts, you also have the chance to experience the dining, the amenities, the impeccable accommodations, and of course—THE GAMING—for yourself! Shopping and dining at the Greenbrier-Pictured Below- Courtesy of the Greenbrier


As you prepare for your own legendary experience at the Greenbrier, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The high stakes room at the Casino Club offers complimentary beverages (at the discretion of the Casino). Outside of the high stakes area, players should be prepared to purchase beverages at their leisure. Also, there is a dress code that players should be aware of. Before 7:00 p.m., players can relax in resort attire (collared sport shirts, sweaters, slacks, and walking shorts). If denim is your attire preference, well-kept denim in a dark shade is the preference of the resort. After 7:00 p.m., it’s time to bask in the gentile spirit of the South as jackets are required for gentlemen. Again, if denim is your attire preference, well-kept denim in a dark shade is the preference. Men’s hats and baseball caps are not permitted.

Not bad but for a resort with the reputation it has it's not maintained to the level. You can tell the owner is cheap and cuts corners. Not really worth $400+ per night. It is a beautiful place though they just need to step it up a little. And don't but the cheapest toilet paper available. I still would recommend it though

Service was hit or miss - unfortunately I can count who gave excellent service. Food was very good. While I understand the historical Greenbrier decor, the hotel needs a refurbishment. Golf facilities were fine, the courses could have used a bit more tending - maybe it was all the rain?! Waterworks at the spa was very relaxing and my attendant was very nice. Shooting clays was fun and the instructor was helpful and nice.

The outdoor property will knock your socks off with it's beauty. The infinity pool takes your breath away. The staff is awesome. Lots of history including bunkers from the cold war, and many rooms that appear that someone vomited flowers: SO much big floral wall paper and over the top draperies and paint that doesn't always work. A little restraint can go a long way way. Regardless, the food was not up to par ( amazing famous golf course) for such an historic property. Very expensive so so food.

We came down for a day enjoying Greenbrier and we were NOT disappointed. The interior at first glance can seem outdated, but was completed by the Dorothy Draper and serves as an homage to the elegance of her era. The fact that everything remains as Princess Grace saw it on her visit was quite special to me. Definitely a great place to stop for an hour, a day, or a week! It needs to be on your bucket list if it isn’t already.

I enjoyed my weekend away with my husband, but it didn’t live up to the stories I’d heard from family who have been in the past. Staying there was on my bucket list so now I can say I’ve been there and done that. My husband and I don’t gamble so we didn’t even enter the casino. We enjoyed the Italian restaurant and walking/ hiking on the property. An evening cocktail ordered under the Gone With the Wind chandelier and drunk out on the balcony was lovely however the evening diner in the main dining room feel short of expectations.

Like no other hotel resort experience. Everything you can think of is here, in old-money opulence and charm. Spa, movies, bowling, arcades, cold-war nuclear bunker tours, offroading, horses, it's all here, and it's all done in the fanciest classic movie era style. Literally just walking around and looking at all the fancy rooms took a whole afternoon. The golf we played was on the prettiest course I have ever seen. I can't describe it any better than that. All this being said, be aware - stuff is expensive...really quite expensive. By all means, make the trip, but do some research to know what you're getting into! If you want to feel like part of the elite, or feel like you're in a movie with Fred Astaire, you'll be fine here. If you want to preserve your wallet's contents, do your research.

One of my favorite places in the world. Just got back from another great stay. Hotel and staff top notch as usual. Restaurants with superb food and the Casino is always great fun. New activities every year including Polaris Slingshot, which I did not get a chance to get to but will soon as they look like great fun. The trails are all back up to speed after the '16 flood and got to hike and bike a good bit of them. Such a peaceful, beautiful place that rejuvenates both the body and the mind. Can't wait to go back.
