“A great hotel”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have stayed here on several trips and it is always a good expereince. On one trip I experienced some medical issues and the staff bent over backwards to help me out. Way beyond what was expected. Nice rooms, gracious staff and a good restaurant.

I am a loyal cutomer and you will be as well.

The Proximity Hotel is a "green" design, construction, and operation. It affords the guest with all of the desired comfort and amenity while maintaining a small environmental footprint. The hotel uses solar power, for some energy needs, and has an impressive recycling program in all of its operations. The room decor is stark/contemporary and the public spaces are chic. The staff is extremely helpful 24-7. The adjacent Printworks Bistro bar/restaurant maintains a casual but elegant appearance and will please any palate (food and wine) and serves 3 meals daily. The hotel is located in an upscale business park and it is extremely convenient to retail, gas, local restaurants, and the interstate. It is truly a great place for a business stay.

I would recommend this hotel to a friend

Room Tip: If you need a tub make sure you then stay in a room designated a "spa" room. It has a lar...

When designing the hotel our intention was that all the sustainable practices employed would only enhance, never detract from our guest's experience. I am delighted that you experienced it as intended!

Thank you for your feedback!

The level of service is absolutely amazing, the decor is wonderfully well stated and modern, and this hotel embodies everything a new, medium sized and hotel should be. It is ALWAYS my first suggestion to someone staying in Greensboro from out of town. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and you can bet that you'll get your money's worth from this stay. It isnt a hotel thats comfortably close to anything you'd really want to walk to, but it's landscaping and surrounding area are safe and attractive.

Tony Villier & ALL the staff are phenomenal! Rooms have high ceilings with excellent natural lighting. Beds very comfortable. Spa room with deep soaking tub. Print Shop Bistro yummy. Unfortunately, not able to use pool as it was closed. Hotel uses custom London & Checker cabs for guest transportation...way cool! Love Me Tender, Sustainable Romance, International Civil Rights Museum Packages each a fun option. Our new favorite place for a romantic get-away!

I am delighted we have become a new favorite!

Being able to stay for a few days and take advantage of the array of packages we have allows us to really treat you to a different experience each day. I am glad you found each one fun, and were able to use our unique London Taxi and Checker Cab to get to your destinations. Keep an eye on our website as we have special spotlight packages that change from season to season and highlight different options.

Thank you for the feedback regarding the pool. I am so sorry the pool had a maintenance issue during your stay. We will make sure it is in tip top shape on your next warm weather visit.

Till then… Warm regards,

Tony

It's a neat hotel with some very nice features and it's green.
Make sure you check the refrigerator, it was not cleaned before my visit.
The staff is very friendly and accomodating.
The location is convenient for the city and they do their best to accomodate.
Make sure you visit the restaurant also.

As a first time guest of this hotel, my wife and I wanted to explore Greensboro, but enjoy a nice room not to far from downtown. Stumbling across the Proximity Hotel due to looking at the Print Shop Bistro, we discovered great pictures of a beautiful and EXTREMELY nice hotel. Well the pictures do not lie and eyes are the only objects that can capture the rooms' great floor to ceiling windows and modern looks. With great decor and an amazing restaurant, this is our ONLY choice when visiting Greensboro, NC.

Room Tip: Stay on top level floors

Wow! We are delighted to be your choice when coming to Greensboro!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, experiencing it is priceless! The loft like feel created with those wonderfully large windows really is striking. Not to mention being in a room bathed in natural light makes you just feel well….right! I love the 8th floor as well with its 12 foot ceilings too!

Cheers!

We stayed here as part of a quick getaway combined with my husband's 20th class reunion. It was awesome.

Everything is luxurious from the moment you walk up to the hotel. Lobby is sharp looking with friendly front desk staff. We had a corner king room which has 2 windows. One was a view of Wendover, ha, but the other looked out over trees and part of the hotel property I think. Nice to see that when you first wake up.

We selected 1 of the romance packages which was a nice touch to have waiting for you when you come back in the evening. The staff is helpful in suggesting a package that suits you, or you can pick and choose which options you want. Adds a little to the price, but we enjoyed the extras. Down the hall on each floor is a guest center with hot, cold or room temp water, as well as ice. There is an honor bar with drinks that you leave cash for and a computer and printer. Also a small seating area.

We ordered room service a few times. They were quick and accurate with our order. The food was great and they even brought me a takeout box I asked for so we could save some for a snack later. We sat at the bar in the Bistro before heading out for the evening. You won't be disappointed there either.

Lastly, this is a green hotel, but do not worry that sacrifices will be made. The shower, sink and toilet are fine. Rooms are great...nice to help the earth and still have an elegant stay.

Highly recommend this hotel.

What a fun reason to visit Greensboro! I’m glad it was awesome!

The variety of packages we have to offer really can make any visit to the Proximity a special one. Our staff certainly seek to meet your desired experience with the right package. They really are a great value. You can even choose to make one up “a la Carte!” Just let us know the look and feel you are going for and we can help suggest some amenities to suit.

Till your next reason to come visit.
