O.Henry Hotel: Greensboro, NC, 4 nights
Type: Four-Star Hotel

Description: The hotel is named after O. Henry, the distinguished and world-renowned short story writer, who was born in Greensboro as William Sydney Porter in 1862. The O. Henry Hotel was designed to embrace the idea of being “in and of” the city of Greensboro. They have used many local materials, emphasized various landmarks of the city, and selected a location where our guests can enjoy lovely views of Greensboro. They took some design cues from the original O. Henry Hotel, built downtown in 1919 and demolished in the 1970s. The O. Henry Hotel is also forward-looking and provide state of the art amenities for the comfort and convenience of their guests.
