“Unbelievable Hotel”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

This is a wonderful hotel and a must if you are staying in Greensboro. The design of the eco-friendly hotel is amazing with the reuse of many materials. The room design features many creative ideas which gives the room a spacious feeling. The overall design of the hotel is very creative. The staff was excellent and made us feel right at home. We ate dinner and breakfast in the Print Works Bistro and enjoyed both meals. This is an excellent property and I recommend it without reservation.

"Now THIS is a hotel!" Those were my exact words when entering my room. After having spent the previous week in a different, lesser hotel whilst on business, what a pleasure it was to stay at The Proximity for a weekend wedding. The staff were always courteous and the room was superb. So many extra touches in this spacious, comfortable room. The bed, the furnishings, the breakfast from room service...all were phenomenal. When I lived in Greensboro, I had picked up people at The Proximity when they were staying there, and had always admired the lobby and entrance. What a treat to have a restful night there after the wedding.

This is the hotel to stay at and they should make more of them to put in cities all over the USA. We booked our wedding reception at this hotel and rooms for our guests, as well as ourselves. EVERY person that stayed at the hotel complimented us on our choice of hotel as it is modern, accessible, has outstanding customer service and a welcoming response to anything you might need, want or simply anticipate needing.
This is across the board and not just because we booked our wedding with them. They treat everyone like they are the most important guest and go the extra mile. They have cars (London Cabs) that they will use as taxis with minimum charges; they have airport shuttle pick up, which was a huge help for all the out of town guests that were flying in; they have a stunning set up in each room where there are giant windows with great light exposure; they have two sinks in each bathroom with Aveda products and all of it is 100% LEED certified as it is the "greenest" hotel in the USA.
The restaurant is Print Works Bistro and it services both guests, restaurant goer but it is also the menu for all the wedding food, which ensures that you receive quality meals for all your guests.
Without any hesitation, I would stay here again and again. I will compare all future hotels to this one for service and standards. My husband and I (along with 30 of our friends that stayed there for our wedding), travel for a living with an entertainment company and live in hotels on a very regular basis. This is one we would choose to stay in for both vacation and business.
Book it and you will have an amazing time guaranteed!

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing windows that are floor to ceiling and the traffic is never so heavy that you...

This hotel is really functional, clean, hip and more. Attached to Print Bistro, which is often loved by many, the hotel has flair of modern architecture and decor blanded with functionality and energy conservation. It is close to many places you would visit or do business in Greensboro. They have courtesy shuttle which is helpful if you fly to Greensboro and dont have your own vehicle. The staff is curteous and helpful.

Thank you for your review! Our livery service, including the fun London Taxis, is a great way to arrive from the airport.

Print Works Bistro certainly has become a local favorite. Wednesday night we feature Mussels night with live music. If you haven't already stop by!

We have stayed at this hotel twice when visiting at Elon University in Burlington. It is about 20 minutes away, but worth every mile. It's location may say, "office park," but the interior is contemporary and serene. I really have nerver seen a hotel interior like it. It is completely ecofriendly -- be sure to watch the video describing the hotel's construction available in your room -- but feels like luxury. The staff is wonderfully nice, and this includes the front desk, the bartenders, and the wait staff in the restaurant. Our breakfasts were delicious in the Print Works Bistro, especially, the chocolate cream puffs. My one complaint? No Prosecco by the glass in the bar. Please fix that before our next visit, because we will be back!

Thank you for choosing us as your "jumping off" point for Elon! I am delighted you experienced our friendly staff at both the front desk and our restaurant team.

I have sent your request for Prosecco by the glass to our Print Works Bistro team. Our wines by the glass can change throughout the year as our list does, but we will certainly work to get one there consistently.
