“Elegance in Greensboro!”
Reviewed 25 October 2010

We stayed at the O. Henry for a weekend wedding and we were very impressed with the hotel. The reception was at a nearby country club and the hotel location was very convenient to the surrounding area. The hotel is privately owned and they put a lot of care and effort into making the standard several notches above the competition but maintaining competitive pricing.

I booked the hotel because it was rated #1 on Tripadvisor and the reviews were all dead on! I booked the hotel through Expedia and they tried to persuade me to book with their affiliates instead. Beware: if you add this hotel to your Expedia itinerary, it is NOT reserved. You will get all the regular Expedia confirmations but, if you read your email carefully, you will see that they did not actually DO the booking.

Luckily, when we arrived at the front desk, they still had 14 rooms available AND they were able to let us in early to change for the wedding. The rooms are large and clean with elegant furnishings. They did little touches like dimmer switches, excellent A/C, a dressing area with additional sink plus cosmetic mirror - things like this. Although there wasn't a mini bar in the room, the hotel has an excellent lounge and bar. We ate lunch at their restaurant upon arrival and the reuben sandwich was to die for. It was so big that we had to split it!

The breakfast buffet was included and the food was actually much better than you would expect. There was also a lovely outside courtyard and fountain and the staff throughout were professional and friendly. The nearby area is just banks and parking lots but the hotel more than makes up for not having a garden property. The classical music was lovely to hear in the public areas and they actually played long sets of Mozart outside and good quality classical guitar inside the dining areas.

I would not hesitate to stay at the O.Henry again. I can see why many furniture shoppers go out of their way to stay at this exceptional hotel. See, there are still entrepreneurs in America - stay at this hotel and avoid the chains!

I'm a student at a university about 40 minutes away, and whenever my parents visit me, they insist on staying at the O. Henry, despite it being over a half hour drive for them. I end up driving back with them every single time because it is just to comfortable to pass up.

I can honestly say that it is the most relaxing and enjoyable hotel I have ever stayed in, and the steaks prepared at the Green Valley Grille (the restaurant on the hotel's first floor) are my #2 favorite dinner. I'm quite an eater, so that is saying something.

5 stars every time. Cannot wait until my parents visit again.

We treated ourselves to a stay at the O. Henry including afternoon tea. At $12.95 for their full tea service, that's quite a bargain. We've been to other places that charged 2x to 3x that amount for inferior food, service and tea. The bedroom and bathroom was very clean. We have a tempurpedic mattress at home and my wife commented that she liked the bed at this hotel and got a good night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious, especially the grits and orange juice. For the best price, go to their website and book the prepaid rate. All in all, a wonderful hotel.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary by escaping to the O'Henry Hotel--only a half hour from our home but a world away from our usual routine. This was our second stay there. What a treat it has been on both occasions!

We have traveled extensively but have seldom had better experiences in customer service than at this hotel. Almost every single employee we encountered seemed genuinely devoted to seeing that we had a wonderful stay.

Other reviewers have accurately described the comfort of the rooms and the common areas of the hotel. We echo the positive reviews of the room layout--one of the best at any hotel we have stayed in. During our previous stay we were in the company of two other couples and the room easily seated us all comfortably for gatherings.

On this occasion we took advantage of one of the special packages available on the hotel web site. This included champaine and a tray of cheeses and chocolates in our room on arrival. Our stay at the O'Henry began positively on the telephone with a very personable reservations clerk who seemed sincerely interested in seeing that we had a marvelous experience.

After a wonderful dinner at the hotel restaurant, a restful night, and breakfast in our comfortable room, we left feeling pampered and renewed. I do not think you could do better than the O'Henry anywhere. This is our new "go-to" escape!

What a great place to stay! Had 2 wonderful nights' sleep thanks to the great beds. Staff were always friendly and accomodating. Lovely breakfast spot with a courtyard - and complimentary full breakfast. Location was convenient and close to shopping. If I ever find myself back in Greensboro - this will be where I stay!

They do not offer complimentary car service within 1 mile as they advertise. Further, they forgot our transportation to the airport despite several reminders. The van finally showed up hot and humid...it did not cool off until we were practically at the airport. No apology, the driver even asked where we were going as I helped him with the suitcases. He said the van had been just sitting in the sun...the lady at the desk explained that the van was delayed due to another guest who had extra luggage requirements....hmmmmm, someone is not telling the truth or fact is stranger than fiction...who knows?
