“Excellent from beginning to end!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a wonderful hotel. From beginning to end our one night stay was perfect. The room was quiet and spacious and beds were comfortable. There were many amenities in the room such as bottled water, a microwave and a small refrigerator. On the bedside table was a complimentary copy of 'The Gift of the Magi' and an accompanying bookmark. But the crowning glory of the room was the bathroom. The layout was amazingly well thought out! We have stayed in hundreds of 4 and 5 star hotels and this hotel had by far the nicest, most accomodating and user friendly bathroom! The staff here are fantastic and the dinner and breakfast we had were excellent.We can't think of a single negative thing to say. Hope we get back to this area again for another stay!

Stayed two nights on a business trip. Lightning-fast check-in, greeted by every single staff person I ever saw in the place for two days. Excellent breakfast, fabulous walk-in shower in the room. Lot of little touches around the place to evoke the "O Henry" time (sort of the late 20s) like the tile patterns in the public bathrooms and the facilities there. Hotel bar is a lively place, with a decidedly upscale clientele and what appeared to be some folks dropping in just for the scene: Greensboro is probably missing a place for the cougars to prowl.

My title kind of stole the punch line, but I have been coming to Greensboro on business for over a decade, usually staying in well-known chains but this property exceeds them all. Their web site touts things like "passionate service" and "afternoon tea" which scares me a bit as that usually indicates pretentiousness or that this is someone's vanity project but I have to say that this property definitely walks the walk and is very professionally run and managed.

The hotel is priced above most others in the area but, unlike many upscale full-service hotels (which this property certainly is), there is very little nickle and dime-ing of the amenities. An excellent breakfast buffet is offered, there are bottles of water in the room and there is plenty of parking - all complimentary. The price is high but there is value.

My room (a king) was very spacious and well appointed. There is a small fridge and microwave in the TV cabinet. I thought the bathroom/dressing area was excellent in both decor and layout. There was a flat screen TV with a large choice of basic cable channels and HBO but none of them were in hi-def (one of my few quibbles with this property). There is free wired and wireless internet but if you want the fastest speed, you had to pay more. I found the standard internet offering decent enough for e-mail, even in the evenings. The attached restaurant (Green Valley Grille) was excellent and I found myself eating all of my dinners there.

If business brings me back to Greensboro, this will definitely be my first choice. Now, if they only offered reward points ;-)....

My wife and I recently stayed at the O.Henry because our friend's wedding reception was there. We received a discount due to the group rate so that helped us out a lot because paying full price would have been too much for us. The staff was friendly and helpful anytime we needed anything. Our room was a comfortable and we especially enjoyed the bathroom which had a tub and separate shower. The included breakfast was a step above what you typically find at chain hotels. The restaraunt/bar was very nice and we enjoyed the outdoor seating area. Parking was ample and free. Everything you could need was located nearby...grocery, drug store, retail stores, restaraunts, etc. Although the hotel is pricey, you get what you pay for and it is a top notch hotel with a staff to go along with it.

Everything about the hotel was top notch - and, really appreciated, free wifi (which I don't find often in the better hotels!). Breakfast (included) was lovely, staff was friendly and accomodating, room spacious - no complaints!

I'm a frequent flyer and have status with two major hotel chains and given the choice I would rather stay here! They are not kidding when they say they are passionate about service. You can move anywhere in the hotel without been greeted. I felt I was in a hotel somewhere in Europe.

This hotel defines what hotels should be. I have stayed in many hotels in my lifetime all over the World, but for the price, it tops. Friendly staff...great comfortable room, large updated bathrooms, service is the main core value of this hotel
