A full Southern-style breakfast is included in all room rates
Old World interiors may not appeal to all travelers

Owners Dennis and Nancy King Quaintance had a very clear vision when opening the O. Henry Hotel in northwest Greensboro: To provide guests with the traditional Southern hospitality of an old-fashioned North Carolina hotel while still offering modern amenities. According to previous guests, the Quiantances succeeded. Visitors love O. Henry's classic ambiance, emphasized by the wood-paneled walls, verdant garden patio and classically designed Green Valley Grill restaurant. Accommodations all feature 9-foot-high ceilings, large soaking tubs and flat-screens, plus a full Southern-style breakfast is included in all room rates. The hotel's more contemporary offerings like the outdoor pool, the high-speed wireless internet and the 24-hour fitness center  also earn a thumbs-up. Past guests are also quick to compliment the hotel's pleasant and efficient staff.

This boutique hotel, named for the renowned author, who grew up in Greensboro, was constructed in the late 1990s but evokes turn-of-the-20th-century charm; expect lots of wood paneling, leather sofas, mohair club chairs, and an extremely friendly staff.
