For the first time in 36 years, the Greenbrier resort is not among AAA's top-rated hotels.

AAA released its national Five Diamond Award list on Friday, and the historic West Virginia resort near White Sulphur Springs wasn't on it. Instead, The Greenbrier received four diamonds.

The Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo., is the only hotel in the nation to earn AAA's Five Diamond Award every year since the rating system's inception in 1976. The Greenbrier and JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz., enjoyed that status until this year.

Greenbrier President Jeff Kmiec and AAA spokesman Michael Petrone didn't immediately return messages seeking comment Friday.

Joining The Greenbrier resort on the four-diamond hotel list in West Virginia is Stonewall Resort in Roanoke and the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown.
