Arrive from the airport in style or get a ride around town in one of our London Taxis (or our restored 1975 Checker Cab).
Complimentary airport transportation is provided for guests to the Greensboro Airport and to our sister restaurants and hotel in a London Taxi or other livery vehicles. We'll also provide transportation to various locations throughout the city for a fee.
We have modified the world-famous, very distinctive London Taxi to meet U.S. mechanical specifications, and its interior has been upgraded to the level of a luxury limousine, the "London Executive Sedan."
The London Taxi has been transporting the public in England for more than 50 years. Now O.Henry guests experience the charm and comfort of these remarkable vehicles. The first of the "world's finest" taxis began arriving in the North America late 2003, bringing with them the style and elegance of a bygone era. The London Taxi's roomy passenger cabins seat five, with enough space to stretch out. Its 56" high ceilings are a holdover from 19th century English laws that required horse-drawn carriages to allow enough room for gentlemen wearing top hats.
We fell in love with this car at first sight and our guests do too. When you're riding in the London Taxi you feel like you're traveling back in time. Some of the hotel's packages include transportation to the theater or symphony. Just imagine pulling up in front of Triad Stage in an elegant London Executive Sedan and having the porter hold open the door as you make your appearance.
This dignified vehicle also includes doors that open 90 degrees for easy entry, foldout ramps for wheelchairs, a built-in child seat, plus seats that swing out onto the sidewalk to help less mobile passengers get in and out. The passenger cabin has its own heating and air-conditioning controls, and an interior intercom system allows clear communication between driver and passengers.
