White Sulphur Springs
300 W. Main St., White Sulphur Springs
West Virginia’s White Sulphur Springs in the Allegheny Mountains have long attracted travelers to the Greenbrier. (Famous faces included the Vanderbilts, the Whitneys, Babe Ruth, and Bing Crosby.) Here, the rambling 710-room property, which was first built back in 1778, was decorated by the famed Dorothy Draper, whose bold and eccentric style (think: coordinating floral wall coverings and club chairs swathed in floral chintz, gilt furnishings, and black-and-white-marble floors), informs each visually explosive nook and cranny. On the property, there are five golf courses, a casino, clay tennis courts, a three-hundred-seat movie theater, and even a bowling alley to occupy littles. In addition to rejuvenating soaks, the spa menu is extensive, offering everything from a hot stone massage to a lymphatic-system stimulating body wrap.
