Last weekend, DG & I took a quick getaway to the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro. January proved to be a busy month for us, and February doesn’t really indicate that things are slowing down any time soon. So, we thought it’d be perfect to get way for a night to celebrate our 6th (!!) anniversary. And, yeah. We still celebrate when we started dating. Remember, celebrate every little thing. DG spends a fair amount of time in Greensboro, but I’ve really only ever driven through. We thought the Proximity Hotel seemed like a fun, unique place to stay and we were not disappointed.
The Proximity is a beautiful hotel but what I loved the most was that it is a green hotel. It uses 70+ sustainable practices, including solar panels to provide hot water. We enjoyed having a drink in the social lobby overlooking the Bluebell Garden. Also on site is the delicious Print Works Bistro, where we had brunch. I loved the boxwood details in the interior and it felt like stepping into a restaurant in Paris. There is complimentary transportation between The Proximity and the O.Henry Hotel, the Proximity’s sister hotel, which has the yummy Green Valley Grill. DG and I had dinner at Green Valley and rode in style in the most adorable checkered cab. After dinner, we enjoyed jazz night, which the O.Henry offers every Saturday night.
I also couldn’t get over the decor in the room! There was shiplap on the ceiling. Be still my Joanna Gaines’ loving heart. It also had the most beautiful chandelier and sitting area. We curled up with coffee in the morning and enjoyed catching up on reading. There is also a drink station on every floor that is fully stocked with beverages and has a sitting area with a laptop & printer for you to use if you need to do some work. It’s the perfect spot for a date night getaway!
