Built to use 40% less energy and 30% less water than a comparable hotel, the locally-owned Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina, offers a glimpse of the future while celebrating the past. Sustainable practices, custom-designed furnishings, commissioned art and innovative design await guests in every corner of the 147-room luxury hotel and its adjacent restaurant, Print Works Bistro.
While many of the 70+ energy and health enhancements are not outwardly visible to guests, folks are sure to notice the oversized windows providing abundant natural light and great amounts of fresh air in their guestroom. However, Proximity's mantra is making sure none of the sustainable practices cause one iota of sacrifice in comfort for guests.
Guests also enjoy flavorful food, custom-designed furniture and original artwork in each room. As guests enter the hotel, they encounter interesting architecture and décor including a “floating” front desk made of a striking 12-foot steel cantilever sculpture, a 28-foot long mohair sofa, an interior balcony overlooking the Social Lobby and 22-foot high windows overlooking the Bluebell Garden.
The hotel features 7,000 square feet of private event space, a spacious fitness studio, outdoor swimming pool, and a “guest living room” on each floor. Proximity’s oversized guest rooms and suites have 50 square-foot windows, custom furnishings, high definition television, Magi beds and signature bathrooms.
