The Greenbrier Hotel is situated in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, USA. As a resort, it has won several awards and is among America's many National Historic landmarks. In the midst of the impressive Allegheny Mountains, it boasts classic architecture and interior design, and meticulously sculpted landscape, courteous service, and superb amenities. No wonder it has hosted many international guests since 1778. It caters to the young with its golf championship grounds, fine dining, designer boutiques, 103,000 square foot gaming, an entertainment venue, and 40,000 square foot world-class spa, and over 50 activities. It has won the Forbes four-star award and the AAA Five Diamond Award and has 710 rooms, comprising 33 suites and 96 estate and guest houses, 10 lobbies, over 40 meeting rooms, and a conference center facility. At the heart of this property is a historic sulfur spring which is symbolic of this hotel. In 1778, Mrs. Anderson used its waters to cure herself of chronic rheumatism, and from then to the next 125 years, it was called White Sulphur Springs. It was then bought by the Calwells of Baltimore, who sold it to the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway, today CSX Corporation. They went into bankruptcy in 2009 and sold it to entrepreneur Jim Justice who restored the hotel to its five-star status. It would also be interesting to know that 27 American Presidents, including Eisenhower, have stayed at The Greenbrier—a hotel that served as an emergency bunker during the Cold War.
