My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway nearby. The Proximity was perfect. They were running a special for the New Years which made it more of an attraction. The privacy was perfect. The staff was super friendly. The rooms were gorgous.

Room Tip: Look at the specials they offer.

We’re so glad that you chose to ring in 2014 with us! The Proximity’s packages are a wonderful addition to any special occasion. Our romantic packages are especially great for that spur-of-the-moment getaway. Happy New Year!

Thanks to my hosts for this business trip, I was recommended the Proximity for a (very) short trip that included one night in Greensboro. Can't say much about the location, but the hotel itself is sticking. From a distance, this Platinum LEED monolith comes to life upon entering the lobby, Throughout the building, the use of raw concrete and other materials is great. All staff interactions were courteous and efficient.
Corner room was well designed and spacious enough but it might have been tight for two occupants after a couple of days. Very clean and well maintained.Bed was very comfortable.
Something never seen in a hotel: the honor system for juice/soda, Impressive.
Also, the purified water system on each floor is an example to follow.
I had a lunch and breakfast at the hotel. Food was good and service exemplary.
Added perk I wish I had known coming in: the free shuttle service to/from the airport. The hotel uses an English cab. Very distinctive.
A little pricey but I would not even consider looking elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are certainly brighter.

We’re thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our special touches in the guest living room areas, specifically the water filters and the honor bar.

Please let us know the next time that you’re coming into town! Our transportation service to and from the Greensboro Airport is a convenient way to get back and forth during your stay. We actually use your airline information to track your flight as it lands at PTI, so that we can have a driver at the airport upon your arrival.

The Proximity is unique in many ways. From the outside it looks like an office building...and you couldn't be blamed for wondering if it was an insurance office. But pull around front, and you will see dramatic white curtains guarding the entrance portal. Make a turn through the huge revolving doors and you will find respectful friendly staff who seem to make it their day's goal to make you feel cared for and important. The rooms follow the same theme. The colors are black, neutral, and marble. Beautiful and understated with a huge mirror reflecting you as the most essential addition to the room. Do yourself a favor and experience this most unexpected portion of Greensboro. As long as your spending the cash--the Proximity isn't cheap--go downstairs and enjoy the restaurant. It's an equal to the quality you will quickly expect from the Proximity. Biggest hits? Perfectly clean. Perfect staff all around. Unique understated rooms that don't short you on comfort.

We love that our unique design captured your attention! When Proximity was still in the “idea phase”, we were actually looking to restore a former warehouse. When we couldn't find one that fit our plan, we decided to build our own as a nod to Greensboro’s rich textile history!

We’re glad that you were able to experience Print Works Bistro. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it’s always available for you to grab a bite to eat of the delicious French-based cuisine. As if it couldn't get any better, the menu changes seasonally, so there’s always an opportunity to try a new dish!

We stayed in Greensboro for two nights and decided to give this a hotel a try. We were not disappointed. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating at all times. The hotel has a modern flare and very different in a good way. Our room was extremely quiet and CLEAN! We have stayed in many mediocre hotels recently and the cleanliness stood out. Another perk was the Print Works Bistro which is connected to the hotel. The food is very good ... we ate there three times! The bar area is very popular and has a cool, metropolitan ambiance. When we return to Greensboro we will be back.

Cleanliness is one of the most basic expectations you have as a guest. Our housekeeping team will be delighted to hear we nailed your experience in the rooms.

Our restaurants are absolutely one of our best amenities! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Print Works so much that you visited again before the end of your trip. The next time you’re in town, visit our two sister restaurants, Green Valley Grill and Lucky 32. Lucky 32 is home to an amazing array of southern-style comfort food, and Green Valley Grill specializes in old-world European cuisine. No matter which restaurant you find yourself at, you’re guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face!

This was the first time I stayed here, only an over night stay this time. The staff were amazing, very friendly and it was a genuine friendliness. The parking lot was free of debris and there were no unsavory characters lurking in the parking area either. The doormen were courteous. The room was immaculate the fixtures and artwork were modern. The beds...wooo amazing one of the best nights sleep I have had in a while. We utilized the gym, it was nice too. A little small but the equipment was top of the line. There is a really nice bar attached to the hotel, no walking outside to get to it. All that and its LEED certified ! We will have another stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the Proximity hotel from October 10th to the 13th for a wedding in Greensboro. The style and architecture was a welcome surprise when we pulled up to the entrance. The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds that were comfortable and the room had more than enough space for comfort. On every floor they had filtered water and drinks by the honor system, which was a nice touch. We will definitely stay there again as we were very happy customers!

Room Tip: Higher floors have larger windows.
