Business travel to Greensboro, North Carolina couldn’t be any easier! Whether you are a seasoned road warrior or this is your first voyage, we’ve put together some helpful pointers when traveling to Greensboro for business.
Before your Trip: What to Pack
Deciding what to bring to your business trip can often be more difficult that the trip itself. Keeping your packing list to a minimum is the easiest way to stay nimble from airport or car to your hotel room.
Leave at home
Start with shedding your toiletries. It’ll make your airport security experience quicker and you’ll have extra room to squeeze in an extra pair of socks. At O.Henry Hotel, your guestroom is fully stocked with AVEDA bath products, makeup mirror, hairdryer. cozy robes and rubber duck to make your stay feel like home.
A few other items that can be easily forgotten are workout clothes (so you don’t slip out of that routine), hand sanitizer, glasses and/or an extra pair of contacts, a pair of slippers or flip flops to lounge around your room in.
It’s okay if you forget
We recommend bringing your own, but we have extra toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, combs, hairspray, deodorant, razors and shaving cream available at O.Henry Hotel if you are in a pinch. We are also located within 8 minute walk to the Friendly Shopping Center. If you need to pick up something up from Harris Teeter, pick up a book at Barnes and Nobles or new attire at Macy’s and the other 100+ stores, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump away. If you are in a real pickle, our porters are able to run an errand or two for a small service fee.
Insiders Tip: Don’t want to be burdened while traveling? Ship what you need to the hotel! So it’ll be waiting for you when you arrive!
Getting to Greensboro: Transportation
Flying into PTI Airport is the easiest and quickest way to get in and out of Greensboro. The security lines at PTI are shorter and move quicker than other airports in the area. O.Henry Hotel also offers complimentary transportation to and from the airport between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. (airport transportation outside of these hours is available for a fee). Just be sure to send us your flight information or include it in when you make a reservation. You’ll enjoy a brief 12 minute trip from the airport to O.Henry Hotel in one of our nifty livery vehicles including our London Taxis!
If you’d like to rent a car when you land, PTI has the following rental car agencies to choose from: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National and Thrifty.
If you are driving into Greensboro, we offer complimentary parking in a private lot. Greensboro does not have the level of traffic congestion you see in most cities and you can get to almost any destination without hassle no matter the time of day. Get directions!
While you are here
Safety & Accessibility
There’s nothing more important than safety. At O.Henry Hotel, we have 24/7 staff to assist you with any request or concern. Our guestrooms have in-room safes to store any personal items. We also have accessible rooms, entrances and social spaces. Learn more about our amenities and accessible rooms.
You are in for a great night’s sleep. Our magi bedding starts with a supremely comfortable mattress. Then we added four plush, down-like sleeping pillows, wrapped it all up with sumptuous, Egyptian combed-cotton, Italian-woven sheets and pillowcases and topped it off with a hypoallergenic, fiberfill blanket and a chocolate brown-colored damask coverlet. Breathe a breath of fresh air all night long with our extraordinary air quality — we put over 40 cubic feet per minute of triple filtered outside air into each guestroom 24/7/365. The double walls between guestrooms creates the noise-cancelling “do not disturb” environment so you can wake rested and ready for the next day.
Dining in Greensboro
We want to make sure you won’t get those awkward mid-morning grumbles in your important meeting. O.Henry Hotel’s complimentary hot Southern breakfast buffet has delicious scrambled eggs, plenty of protein, fresh fruit, yogurt, muffins, grits, oatmeal, gluten-free options and chef selections that change daily to insure you’ll start the day energized and focused.
Greensboro has so many wonderful diverse restaurants to choose from! No matter where you are located you’ll be able to find a great restaurant close by. If you’re looking to have a working lunch, try Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen’s Get Lucky and Go. Order from the full menu to pick up and take with you. See the menu.
Located adjacent to O.Henry Hotel, Discover Green Valley Grill’s informally elegant, zestful dining and fresh seasonal food featuring Old World European culinary sensibilities and flavors. Their friendly and welcoming bar features artisanal cocktails, craft beers and 500 wines.

Taking advantage of a spare moment to check your email and catch up on some work is the best way to fight the pile up when you return. Finding the perfect spot to nestle down and get to work can be another issue. Our social lobby or cloister garden are great places to set up shop if you thrive in a community environment. The lower level lobby and business workstations on each floor are a great place for a change of scenery, but with a little less traffic. You can spread out and focus without any distractions in your room with the large ergonomically designed desk with adjustable chair. O.Henry Hotel also has flexible meeting space if there is a need for a private conference or meeting.
