CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Greenbrier County Chamber of Commerce's executive director hears speculation every day about who might be interested in purchasing The Greenbrier resort: MGM Mirage casinos, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, Donald Trump.

 

"There's just been a lot of speculation, a lot of names flying around, but nothing concrete," said Katie Crickenberger Ickes. "At this point, everyone here would just love seeing something happen."

 

Of all the rumors, Marriott International's possible interest in The Greenbrier seems to have the most juice, thanks to West Virginia football legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Sam Huff.

 

I've often thought that Marriott could run (and run well) some of the most elegant places in America, like the historic Greenbrier Resort.  Living in the shadow of the Lodge at Pebble Beach (not quite as historic) I always hoped secretly that Marriott could easily take over and improve everything there. I still have that hope. Here's hoping Marriott can pull this off!
