FrontRunners: Gimme Shelter

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2006

    The basement level of West Virginia’s Greenbrier hotel (www.greenbrier.com) contains rooms that once were always booked for, though never occupied by, Beltway power brokers. The 1,100 bunks tucked behind a 25-ton blast door in the 112,544-square-foot facility, built by President Eisenhower during the Cold War, were reserved for government officials in the event of a nuclear attack. The bunker, which has been undergoing renovations since 2004, recently reopened to the public. Greenbrier guests may contact the concierge for a tour; others may visit the bunker on Wednesdays and Sundays for a $30 fee. . . .
