“Southern High Class Charm”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

This review is based on a one night stay in the Magi Suite for my wedding. It's difficult to review for a hotel which you only stayed one night, so here we go. The Magi suite is in one word - Amazing. The amenities this hotel provides was enough to suit any traveler. I advise getting one of the packages. Since it was our wedding, I chose the Enchanted Escape package since it included breakfast in bed and couples massage and late check out. I hope they don't mind me telling you we were even granted early check in too since it worked perfect for our schedule of having my wife's hairdresser do her hair at the enormous mirror in the bathroom. The most comfortable bed must be the Magi which O'Henry provides. Service was great also. I hope the staff maintains their high standards. Great job!

I stayed here with my mother and two sons over the 4th of July weekend. On our first night we were in a king bed/pull out couch room. The room size was fine but we really needed a two queen bed room which we were given for the next two nights. The king mattress, by the way, was the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. The queen bed rooms are big and the four of us had plenty of room. We never felt like we were bumping into each other or trying to get out of each other's way.

The hotel buffet breakfast is complimentary and includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits/gravy, pastry, breads, cereal, fruits, juices and coffee. It was fantastic.

One of the hotel amenities that we used was the outdoor pool. It is on the small side but was very quaint. Soft classical music played in the background of the pool area and that was a nice touch. 4'3" was the deepest the pool got so that was nice since my kids are 8 and 9 years old. There were plenty of towels, comfortable lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas in the pool area and food service was available there.

We also used the gym. It had three treadmills, two elliptical machines, two bikes, some free weights, clean mats and a bench. The equipment was up to date and had attached TV screens/service to each machine. Not bad and definitely good enough for us. I believe there was the option to use another gym nearby if one wished to pay an additional fee.

The staff was very good. We had pleasant interactions with the front desk, food service personnel, housekeeping and doormen. We especially appreciated the hospitality from Michael Jenkins/Michael J. What a wonderful ambassador! We ran into him several times over our stay and each time he offered kind words, a friendly face, an interesting story or great suggestions for the area. My kids kept looking for him whenever we were in the lobby. This man is a gem.

The hotel was immaculate. Cleanliness is extremely important to me and this place was spotless.

Overall, I was very impressed . There was one little glitch with an early morning wake up call that keeps me from giving this hotel a perfect rating. I would love to stay here again.

Another great word “divine”, one of it’s meanings in the dictionary is “heavenly”. Wow! We are truly honored by your review.

Mr. Jenkins’ official title is “Ambassador of Arrival”; it suits him to a “T”. We are extremely lucky to have a staff member who loves our guests and the role he plays in their O. Henry experience. He is a gem!

We hope you have the opportunity to come back and spend more time with us and Mr. Jenkins!

The hotel looks, by design, as if it has been around for a very long time. It's furnishings and spaciousness are reminiscent of grand old hotels but with modern amenities. The food in the Green Valley Grill and the breakfast room were well prepared and tasty. The pool area is small but serviceable. The hotel room was large but the wood furniture could use refinishing. The bathroom products are Aveda and there was a long and deep tub as well as a glass enclosed shower. The staff were exceptionally friendly.

What a great word “Comfortable” to describe the hotel, it is perfect!

One of the many things that sets the O. Henry apart from other hotels is the elegant, historic decor. Many of the styles featured were inspired by the original O. Henry Hotel (1919 – 1976) in downtown Greensboro. Many of our guests are surprised to find out that the hotel is only 14 years old; it looks like it was built in the 1920’s.

I am delighted that you recognized our wonderful bathtubs; they are one of my favorite features of the bathroom.

Come get "Comfortable" again with us soon!

I stayed here with my family, ages 7 to 80, and the O.Henry was a hit with everyone. The kids loved the afternoon tea and free O.Henry bars, my dad liked the bar and I loved super clean room and comfy bed. The lobby is wonderfully old school with pine panel walls and lots of plush chairs. Staff is great!

Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled to be able to offer a gracious array of amenities, and ones that appeal to all the members of your group. Our afternoon tea is delightful for all ages and the food is delicious.

Our OhHenry! Candy bars are in high demand by both our leisure guests and our corporate guests; we can’t seem to keep the jar full.

Thank you for sharing your experience with TripAdvisor, we look forward hosting your family again soon!

We go here every year for a birthday celebration. The staff goes out of their way to help you and make your stay perfect. The Afternoon Tea is wonderful and beautifully served. It is best to make a reservation for the tea, but if it is not busy, they will find a spot for you. The Green Valley Grill has a delicious variety of food. The patio is delightful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is difficult to get out of bed in the mornings to go eat at the breakfast buffet. Watch for their seasonal deals for a little more affordable rates.

Room Tip: All the rooms a excellent~if you want more natural light in your room, ask for a corner room.

A friend and I stayed for 3 nights, we were in town for a family event. I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel...the breakfast is amazing and in a beautiful peaceful room that is all windows surrounded by trees and flowers. The staff are so kind and do not know the word "no"...they were so accomodating. We had two wonderful days by the lovely and secluded pool, with room service at our beck and call. There is a large shopping center that we could walk to, with Eddie Bauer, Barnes & Nobles, Macys and many other shops, and several restaurants. The room was spacious and very clean and had the best linens, etc. The bathroom was exceptionally nice, with separate shower and large bathtub, as well as a second sink and large vanity and mirror outside the bathroom...perfect for two people getting ready at the same time. Complimentary wi-fi, large flat screen TV, amazing menu for restaurant or room service...I have been to their sister property "The Proximity" and it is equally amazing, but totally different in its presentation. The O'Henry has cool details like the names of his literary works inscribed on the brass plates in the elevators, and lots of special touches like an afternoon tea, and quaint little "London taxi" cars to pick you up...I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I found the hotel to be very quiet, even with lots of people there...I was on the 4th floor, and hea...

If you want a change from the usual chain with gracious southern hospitality this is the place for you. The staff rushes toward the lobby front door every time you enter to welcome you. The rooms are modern and spacious. If you are looking for scenery, there isn't much as you are near a major commercial area which of course provides convenience. The attached restaurant, The Green Valley Grill is terrific.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel will let you see more trees and less commercial area or parking lots...

Oh goodness! I have not replied to this review and it is a great one!

Thank you for recommending us to other travelers, we are different and provide a refreshing change from the chain hotels. We are southern hospitality at its best!

The O. Henry is located in an area that is close to downtown and a business park and we are with walking distance of beautiful gardens, greenways for walking and great shopping. Soon we will be providing bicycles that our guests can use to ride around the area.

Thank you again; we hope you get a chance to travel this way again in the near future.
