in and of the community

During the first decades of 20th century, before the advent of super highways, the proliferation of airports, and the demise of travel by rail, hotels were locally-owned and so passionately managed that they became more than lodgings for travelers. They served as a place where business leaders met, friends dined, and families celebrated the joys of life. In design as well as function, the O.Henry Hotel reflects this grand earlier era – the comfortable elegance of the Arts and Crafts style, the use of classic North Carolina red brick, pine, and cast granite, and meticulous attention to detail. These time-honored building traditions combine with modern technology to produce a hotel with the vitality to last more than a century. Our gracious hospitality and top-notch service at our Greensboro boutique hotel transport guests back to this earlier era.

Now employee owned!

After 28 years of operating one of the top-rated hotel and restaurant companies in the South, the founders of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels (QW) announced on November 17, 2016 that it is now 100% owned by its 600+ staff members. This makes QW one of only a few employee-owned restaurant and hotel companies in the entire country. Learn more.
