“A beautiful 4 star hotel with old world ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

What a treat to stay at the O Henry Hotel! The beautiful paneled wood lobby with high ceilings and a portrait of the writer O Henry himself set the tone. High tea is served in the comfortable lobby area. There is also a beautiful bar and restaurant. The staff is very friendly but professional. They even have complimentary O Henry candy bars for guests! The rooms were luxurious but with modern amenities. A very special place.

Wow, my husband really surprised me with a stay at O. Henry. I never expressed to him that I wanted to stay here. We are triad residents, so I have seen the outside of the hotel plenty of times. Well last night I final saw the inside. It is gorgeous!!! We have been treated like special guest from the moment we got our luggage out our vehicle. Great customer service from the staff we encountered. Our waiter last night was wonderful. The room is outstanding - I love the bathroom. It's great to have a hotel like this in the local area.

I would like to mention that our room was a little cold. Even with the heat turned up, there was a cold draft. The covers on the bed were thick enough for me not to call room service, lol. Even with that minor issue, we will return in the future!!!

Room Tip: 5th floor facing parking lot has been cozy & noise free.

Happy 20th Anniversary! We are honored you shared such a special day with us, thank you! I am glad you enjoyed your stay (and I agree with you on the bathrooms, I think they are the best part about the rooms). Thank you for sharing about the room temperature, we will investigate that and ensure the room is heating correctly. We look forward to your next time with us!
My Best, Peyton

Gentlemen spend the time to make a reservation and choose a package for your sweetheart. The location to shopping,restaurants and Greensboros social scene is ideal. The hotel and staff is a taste from old world elegance without losing our modern amenities. You will owe me!

Room Tip: Choose a package that best suites your taste.

We live in the area, but had a chance to spend a night here recently. This is an excellent hotel that strives for perfection.

Pros: Very nice room. Excellent front desk staff. Beautiful lobby area. Most of the employees are very well trained. Very clean room and bathroom!

Cons:

We used their van service 2 times. The first driver was outstanding, but the second driver needed some improvement (e.g. He was playing loud music in the van that wasn't particularly pleasant.)

The restaurant needs to train their wait staff better. Our waitress came to our table with 2 salads and 2 glasses of wine in her full hands and just kind of plopped the stuff down on the table. Not exactly a first class presentation.

Their breakfast buffet was somewhat mediocre and they ran out of tables. Someone finally guided us to another room.

This is a solid 4-star hotel and Greensboro is fortunate to have the O. Henry and its sister property the Proximity.

This was our fourth stay at the O'Henry. It is our very favorite place to get away for short stays as we live only 30 miles away. We have traveled extensively both in the US and abroad. This hotel ranks among the best we have stayed world-wide. On this trip-to celebrate the New Year with another couple-we took advantage of the holiday special which added a second night's stay and a bottle of sparking wine for just $100.

The restaurant on the property, Green Valley Grill, is absolutely first-rate. We ate there on New Year's Eve. A prix-fixe dinner that evening was spectacular.

We also took advantage of the free transportation in the London taxi to visit the Print Works Bistro, another restaurant owned by the same family-owned company (Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels) . We have used this service several times. Every driver we have encountered has been so personable and pleasant they have added to the enjoyment of the evening.

What a pleasure to visit hotels and restaurants where customer service is obviously the first priority! We look forward to returning again and again to recharge our batteries and enjoy being pampered.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong anywhere in this hotel.

Kudos to design team who helped create this space. Recreates a sense of grand charm from hotels of days gone by when you felt special to be away from home.

Beautiful lobby which serves high tea and an outstanding restaurant add to the comfort level. Old world charms abound, even in the lobby restrooms which look as if they're from the same era as the original O'Henry hotel.

My grandfather was the night manager at the original O'Henry back in the 30's. I am certain he would be proud of this lovely remake.

We stayed on the first night of our honeymoon. I had called and made the reservations probably a month or so ahead of time and the staff was polite and helpful. When we arrived they found our reservation immediately checked us in very efficiently. They remembered we were on our honeymoon and asked how our wedding was etc. We had rose petals set up in the room and chocolate covered strawberries. The staff made a heart on our bed with the petals and the strawberries were delicious. They went above and beyond. Our room was spotless and believe me, I am a germaphobe! I had been unsure at first, because of how expensive it was, but it was so worth it! I am glad we didnt stay anywhere else!
