Our history begins in 1903, when the building was constructed to house the burgeoning corporate empire of Cone Export and Commission Company. At the time it was said to be “in every way up-to-date and well appointed.” This means completed wired for electricity and plumbing, and in 1920, they added one of Greensboro’s first unmanned elevators to the building; it is the one we still use today. They occupied the space until 1924 when they moved to larger building around the corner. At that time, the building housed local insurance companies. It was in 1929, that the building was converted to living quarters. Half of the building was used as an annex to the local post office, until 1932, and the other half was listed in the city directory as furnished rooms. The Greenwich, as it became known as the following year, was one of the first to offer private baths for around $2.00 a day. In the late ‘40s, early 50s, it became known as the Greenwich Apartments and stayed this way until the mid-1960s. In the late ‘60s, the building reopened as the Greenwich Inn, and a new face was brought to the building by renowned interior designer Otto Zenke. He modeled the hotel after an English hunting club and decorated the lobby as an old world drawing-room with walnut paneling and traditional hunting scenes.The hotel changed ownership once again 1992, and was renamed the Biltmore Greensboro Hotel. Today, we pride ourselves as a fine boutique establishment, offering old world charm accentuated by modern amenities you would find at any hotel of distinction. Under new ownership since 2007, we look forward to continuing to provide memorable experiences for all our guests. Stay once and not only will we remember your name but the little things like your favorite room or you need for a late checkout. It is always “no problem.”

Our favorite place to stay in downtown Greensboro - walking distance to theaters and restaurants. This weatherworn grande dame surrounds you with history and treats you to wine and cheese in the evening and pastries in the morning.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed here NYE for a wedding event and was pleasantly surprised on how quaint this hotel is. From the moment you walk in, to the "old school" elevator, to the "antique" rooms, you feel right at home. All of the staff were so accommodating and helpful. No, it's not super fancy

We were in town for a show and wanted to spend the night close by. This was the perfect place! It’s a one-minute walk to both Carolina Theater and Triad Stage. There are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance. Parking is free at the garage right across the street. And

I enjoy staying at the Biltmore because of the friendly staff, the downtown location within walking distance to restaurants, the inviting living room area where you can meet other guests or sit and read a book, there area hardwood floors in the guest rooms.

Charming, centrally located, helpful and friendly staff. The working 1920's elevator adds to the ambiance. My husband and I visited on a combination business/social weekend, and we decided this is a terrific little hotel. I look forward to staying at the Biltmore Greensboro
