Overview

Complimentary airport transportation
No on-site spa

Nature-lovers can rest easy at the Proximity Hotel, as it is one of the greenest hotels in the country. Located about 3 miles northwest of downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, this property was specifically designed to use 40 percent less energy and 30 percent less water than other comparable hotels. But not all guests choose the Proximity for its environmental friendliness. Some love its unique design (especially the "floating" 12-foot steel front desk and the sweeping spiral staircases in the Social Lobby). Others rave about the views from the guest rooms through the massive windows and the tasty food found at Print Works Bistro. Most importantly, visitors praise the Proximity's friendly customer service staff and fairly low room rates.

With its high ceilings, big windows, and exposed beams, this modern hotel makes you feel like you're in the future — or perhaps just in a loft in a bigger city than Greensboro.

The elevator to our room, remarkably, was self-powered, its downward motion fueling the upward lift.
