GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Triad hotel was featured before hotels and resorts from Bora Bora, St. Lucia, Cabo San Lucas, Hawaii and the Maldives on a top 10 list compiled by the Travel Channel.

Proximity Hotel in Greensboro was on the list of "10 Stunning Hotels That Make Sustainability a Priority" published earlier this month. Though the 10 hotels on the list are not ranked by number, Proximity was the first slide on the online feature.
