This is one of our most requested posts so we are reprising it with updated information, just in time for Fall Market and HPU Parents’ Weekend. Enjoy!
Planning for a trip to High Point Market? Or maybe a visit to HPU? No matter how many times people have been to High Point the number one question I get from friends coming to visit is: “Where should I stay?” Surprisingly (and contrary to what some believe), you do have options. The tricky part is they fill up fast, and sometimes even months in advance (so our advice is to plan – and book – early).
Here is a list of some of our favorite places in and around High Point.
Built in 1918 and celebrating its 100th anniversary, this mansion on Main Street, featuring 31 individually-designed rooms, is right in the heart of the uptown district and is within walking distance to some of our favorite restaurants and the local craft brewery, Brown Truck Brewery!
A boutique hotel in a 100+ year old Southern home designed by six prominent interior designers. It’s even located one block from Market Square Tower.
For those Airbnb fans out there – we have a real treat in store for you!
One of our designer friends, Lisa Sherry of Lisa Sherry Interieurs has an Airbnb home available. That will make you want to stay in High Point forever! Nicknamed Casa Noir, this beauty is right in the heart of one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods in High Point. Airbnb Rental – Woodbrook in High Point
Speaking of renting houses, High Point has been doing it long before Airbnb was a thing! If you’re coming for one or even a few nights, this option might not be for you. Home rentals are best for those who are planning to stay awhile and each house usually has a minimum night requirement.
That said, we have friends who travel the world to come to High Point and when they discover renting a house is an option it’s kind of like winning Olympic Gold.
The following is a list of local companies who connect private homes to High Point Market renters:
Our friends over at the High Point Market Authority have created an excellent resource of nearby hotels that offer complimentary shuttle service to the Market. We can’t stress this enough – BOOK. EARLY.
Beyond High Point
If all those High Point options are full and you find yourself looking elsewhere, here are a few other recommendations in the Piedmont Triad area:
Proximity Hotel in Greensboro
Located near the Friendly Center shopping district, this beautiful LEED Platinum, AAA Four-Star hotel is one of our favorites.
Be sure to make reservations at Print Works Bistro, the AMAZING European-French restaurant on site.
O Henry Hotel in Greensboro
Named after the O’Henry Hotel originally located in downtown Greensboro, this property has become a Greensboro landmark in which they nurture the concept of being a community based hotel.
The Cardinal Hotel in Winston-Salem
The Cardinal welcomes you with modern flair. It’s located in downtown Winston-Salem’s historic R.J. Reynolds building, the architectural muse for the Empire State Building.
Be sure to grab dinner or a cocktail at The Katharine Brasserie and Bar located in the hotel.
We look forward to seeing you on the streets and in the showrooms of High Point!
Safe travels, HP Discovered
