“Welcoming & Elegant”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Everyone associated with the hotel staff is genuinely welcoming and helpful. Check in/ check out is easy, efficient and accurate. The rooms are a comfortable size, the bedding makes it easy to get the rest you need. Breakfast was included and the offerings were substantial and varied including gluten-free options. Free wi-fi helps you to stay in touch.

The entrance and reception area of the hotel is quirky but stunning and the period theme continues throughout the hotel with all mod-cons. With welcoming efficient staff and easy check-in we were directed immediately to our two rooms. Both rooms were beautifully clean, spacious and well stocked with everything needed for a perfect stay, including bath robes and a complementary book of O'Henry's short stories - nice touch! We weren't so impressed with the "Magi bed with triple bedding" as we thought we would be - the bed pillows were quite uncomfortable, but that was our only niggle with the rooms. Buffet style breakfast was superb, with an array of fresh delights on offer to choose from. We did find the 9am weekday deadline for breakfast a little early for us as we were on holiday, but maybe this is because the hotel caters for corporate events and more business clientele during the week. We didn't want to miss the breakfast as it was far too delicious. The outside pool was delightful and kept spotlessly clean. We treated ourselves to afternoon tea. Pretty crockery and cucumber sandwiches - lovely to do but don't expect huge portions. This is a very delicate affair. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to splash out for a little bit of luxury, and would love to visit again sometime if in the area.

I surprised my mother with an overnight visit to the O'Henry. From the moment we walked under the portico and saw the lush plantings at the entrance I knew she was going to be very happy with our accommodations. The lobby is absolutely beautiful! In fact, we checked in, went to our lovely room, then returned to the lobby to read until time for dinner. The hotel was quiet, the bedding was wonderful, the double sinks were a treat...on and on! Breakfast was the icing on the cake. NOT your usual Southern breakfast buffet...presentation was lovely & everything we tasted was flavorful...especially the potatoes. The only drawback was that we didn't plan to stay two nights!

Had to spend a night in Greensboro on my way to,Atlanta. Great hotel with large comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and pretty good amenities. A tad pricey, but worth it. Excellent restaurant on site. Would stay here again.

We returned to this lovely hotel to find it a good as it has been each time we have visited. A trained and competent desk staff, good rooms and beds, a fabulous breakfast, and a terrific restaurant and bar. We will return here on our trip back to Atlanta.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel are preferred as adjacent highway traffic can be slightly noisy. Aft...

From the moment you are picked up at the airport and then throughout your stay, the O'Henry staff makes you feel so welcome, and is able to anticipate what you might need before you even know you need something. The ambiance is elegant, the food excellent, and the rooms are very comfortable. I travel a fair amount for business and am always delighted when I know I get to stay at the O'Henry. Kudos to the owners and the way they train and inspire the staff to provide such a friendly, warm experience to their guests. Thank you!!

Really a great experience. I stayed here after a horrible experience at the Hampton Inn in Greensboro. The difference was totally worth the additional $60 spent for the O Henry. The room was 3 times bigger than the Hampton Inn. It was super clean, beautifully decorated and a great value. And no inconvenient issues like I experienced at the Hampton Inn (no hot water, I had to call their Customer Service complaint line to get a refund for the room! And the front desk clerk was incredibly rude when I checked out because she had to refund my money!). Also I should mention that the location was perfect. Just a few minutes from the highway in the gentrified downtown area that is convenient, safe, beautiful, and surrounded by restaurants in all price ranges). The Hampton Inn is right off of an exit ramp next to the highway and you hear the traffic noise all day and night. And at the Hampton Inn you have a choice of looking out over the Hooters or the highway...pretty downscale. The O'Henry in contrast has totally professional and gracious front desk staff. The hotel is beautiful. I cannot say enough! Stay here instead of the Hampton Inn! It is a world of difference!
