Today many of the original cottages are preserved as guest accommodations, although enlarged and modernized. In 1913, the central Georgian section of The Greenbrier opened on a year-round basis, with golf and tennis as featured attractions. Subsequent additions to this National Historic Landmark have refined the hotelís architecture to reflect the Colonial Virginia style. Following use as an army hospital during World War II, the hotelís interior was redecorated by Dorothy Draper.
