A great concept hotel that misses on some of the staff efforts and furnishings. The hotel is different in design but pretty cool. Filtered water cooler on every floor and a modern motif throughout. The bed was dreadful. It sunk in the middle like a crevasse. Really uncomfortable. Our room a/c and heater malfunctioned for 3 days. The thermostat and... More

This hotel is unique in that it is LEED certified and totally enjoyable. Plus it is visually stunning at every turn while being thoughtful in every detail. The staff friendly and easy to talk with. I only had breakfast in my room one day, but I can not imagine a better breakfast in the world. I cannot wait to go... More

The Proximity Hotel is #1 for sustainable practices. It was snowing when I arrived and I was concerned with Solar Panel heating for a hot shower. Although the hotel uses 50% less energy than other hotels this was not a problem. Guest room designs are sleek and beautiful. Love the western view from the Hotel. Windows as tall as the... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful words! We love that you noticed the effect that our large windows can have on the room, specifically all of that natural light that you get throughout the day. The tall windows also make the room an ideal (and warm!) place to watch the snow fall. Each amenity that you mentioned was handpicked... More

This is a cool upscale hotel in Greensboro! It is a very comfortable hotel and makes a great weekend getaway or a nice business meeting location. The Bistro next door is a wonderful experience of food.

A great stay in GSO. Staff was very friendly, seamless checkin/out. They have a great restaurant on site (Printworks Bistro) which is a must do. Great food and very good selection of NC craft beers. Rooms are perfect, very clean with many ammenities. Gym is well equipped. Oh...and LEED certified so very earth-friendly!

I didn't know this hotel was "the greenest hotel in the country" when I booked it but the solar panels visible on the roof as I approached were my first clue. Elegant (if a bit dark) lobby with pleasant, eager-to-please, if a bit harried front desk staff. In the room, nice bed and well-appointed bathroom. It's to the hotel's credit... More

The Proximity is an unexpected, delightful place to stay in Greensboro. Billed as the first LEED platinum hotel in the country, it is both attractive and cool- with many thoughtful touches. If anyone needs to be convinced that very low resource use can be beautiful and comfortable, they should stay a few days here. The staff is attentive and friendly... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel! Stayed there as a dear friend was hosting a birthday party there. The staff was amazing! They felt like family!

The hotel is very modern, perhaps too much so for my taste. But the staff is wonderful! My two biggest complaints are: (1) operating the TV/cable system is not easy (and I travel often and am used to operating different systems), and (2) when paying $200+ a night, guest should be provided real coffee creamer, not powdered fake stuff.

My husband and I only spent one night but thought the large room and huge bathroom were fantastic! Loved the layout. Late check-in but the staff was very helpful and the room was cozy and warm even with all the windows and bitter cold outside. Wish we could have stayed longer…. A bit pricey, but worth it.

We have several different room designs, so each new stay brings an opportunity to experience the same amenities in a different layout.
