On the occasion of this anniversary, we're looking back nostalgically and looking forward enthusiastically. While reminiscing about the past decade and a half, we are wrapping up more than $2 million in further enhancements that we have quietly completed during the last couple of years.

How We Are Different
Our AAA Four Diamond hotel in central Greensboro is different from other hotels. Different for the sake of comfort, style, cleanliness, accessibility, durability and service. Imagine a boutique hotel where all the details have been considered, where desires are met as they arise. Imagine sinking into a deep mohair club chair or a sofa upholstered with leather as soft as a baby's behind, while our attentive staff serves afternoon tea or pre-dinner cocktails in our Social Lobby. Retire to your inviting guest room where custom designed, finely crafted furnishings and our extraordinarily comfortable Magi bedding soothe your soul. This is the place to pamper yourself.
Our 131 oversized guestrooms (including 10 suites) feature Magi Beds designed for a great night’s sleep, shower with separate soaking tub and dressing rooms, comfortable furnishings, fresh air, Wi-Fi, and in-room dining. Included with each overnight stay is a complimentary full, hot, Southern-style breakfast buffet. Enjoy in the light-filled Pavilion or accompanied by birds singing in the Cloister Garden.
With its 25-foot high ceiling and 25-foot wide arched window looking onto our Don Rives Cloister Garden, the grand Social Lobby’s setting takes you back to the 1920s and 30s. Visit with friends during afternoon tea or enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.
Other hotel amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, outdoor pool and complimentary transportation to and from the Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO) in a London Taxi, or one of our other livery vehicles.

No two events are exactly alike, and personalized events are an O.Henry specialty. Small details make big impressions, so our planning professionals will help you with everything.
Food & Wine
Green Valley Grill’s fresh seasonal food uses old-world European culinary sensibilities. When you add an eclectic décor, alfresco dining in the Courtyard and a friendly bar, you will imagine that you have traveled farther than you did. Green Valley Grill caters all hotel events.
In and Of the Community
During the first decades of 20th century, before the advent of super highways, the proliferation of airports, and the demise of travel by rail, hotels were locally-owned and so passionately managed that they became more than lodgings for travelers. They served as a place where business leaders met, friends dined, and families celebrated the joys of life. In design as well as function, the O.Henry Hotel reflects this grand earlier era – the comfortable elegance of the Arts and Crafts style, the use of classic North Carolina red brick, pine, and cast granite, and a meticulous attention to detail. These time honored building traditions combine with modern technology to produce a hotel with the vitality to last more than a century. Our gracious hospitality and top-notch service at our Greensboro boutique hotel transport guests back to this earlier era.
O.Henry Hotel is located adjacent to wonderful Friendly Shopping Center village and a short drive to downtown Greensboro and the Piedmont Triad International Ariport. It is only a stone’s throw away from its sister, the AAA Four Diamond/LEED Platinum Proximity Hotel. We're also near the Greensboro Coliseum, UNCG, A&T University, and Guilford College.
