Rubbish Tuesday - Wrapping Things Up @ The Greenbrier

(click on photos to enlarge)
Well I thought that I had taken a bazillion photos from inside but I really didn't. Many were too dark and rushed as we sped through the hotel. Nick gets impatient with me when I take too many pictures and he zoomed through the place like it was on fire so you'll have to make do with most photos having my precious family in them from the backside lol...
As you can see there are many retail shops inside and you can read more about that HERE

The interior design was done by Dorothy Draper and you can read more about that HERE

I won a whopping 26 clams in the casino playing Keno!

I think the Cameo Ballroom is my favorite room there, featuring a 9-foot chandelier of Czechoslovakian crystal. The lighting fixtures all through the hotel are just incredible.

Well, I guess this will conclude your tour of The Greenbrier until I get back there again! Linking with Roan's Rubbish Tuesday which is a fun meme that is more about wonderful old things than it is about rubbish! Happy Tuesday :)

Don't forget to stop by on Friday for the Willy-Nilly Friday 5 link up. Linky opens Friday at 12 a.m. Eastern!
