By Tina Alvey
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS — Jim Justice, owner and chairman of The Greenbrier, on Wednesday unveiled an unprecedented offer exclusively for West Virginia and Virginia residents to stay at the luxurious resort for $59 per night.
The Tribute to the Virginias package is only available on the nights of Nov. 15-16 and Dec. 18-20, as well as Jan. 8-10 and Feb. 5-7, 2010.
“Tribute to the Virginias is our way of saying thank you to our friends and neighbors for their support of this grand resort,” Justice said. “The Greenbrier is a national treasure, and we want to share our enthusiasm and our new amenities with the citizens of West Virginia and Virginia. The people of these two states feel a sense of pride about The Greenbrier, and we want them to experience the warm hospitality and many wonderful amenities here.”
Since buying the resort earlier this year, Justice has many times spoken of his affection for the Mountain State and its residents.
Addressing White Sulphur Springs City Council in June, he said, “I’m so proud of West Virginia. We have so much to offer.”
He heaped praise on the Spa City, home of The Greenbrier, citing its friendly people, low crime rate and the beauty of the changing seasons as a significant part of the allure of the resort.
“Tribute to the Virginias is just his way of showing his appreciation to the people of these two states,” said Lynn Swann, The Greenbrier’s director of public relations. “He just truly loves this state.”
This celebration of the resort’s recent successes also includes $20 in Match Play coupons per night for The Tavern Casino, complimentary greens fees and 20 percent off on all other outdoor activities, including falconry, off-road driving, mountain biking, sporting clays, carriage rides and horseback riding.
In addition, dinner dances, featuring a spectacular themed buffet, either A Celebration of the Virginias or A Taste of The Greenbrier, will be available on select dates at a rate of $45 per person.
The daily resort fee is waived for guests on this package, but county and state taxes apply. This rate, based on single or double occupancy, is valid for standard rooms only; add-on rates apply for premium rooms, including suites and guest houses. A limit of two rooms per guest may be booked at this rate.
A non-refundable deposit equal to all room and tax charges is due at the time of booking. This package is only available on select dates and for two nights maximum. A valid photo ID, with proof of residency, must be shown at check-in.
