Reviewed 14 August 2012

My stay at the Westin in Greenville,South Carolina was fantastic. Did you know that they have the most comfortable beds EVER. Whats more, a fantastic group of people that make you feel very special with their personal touches they put on everything. The robes they provide have that crisp, comfortable,and very cozy feel.Not to mention the location, in the heart of a fantastic city itself, that provides so much to do and see. The city offers an abundance of restaurants,thearters, interesting shops, and sporting events. Did I mention the best cupcakes the south has to offer!! Yum,yum... On Saturdays during the summer,hearty greetings come from the city's finest venders from farm raised eggs to gourd craft bird houses.Something for everyone. Whats not to love in Greenville, South Carolina? Try the Westin Poinsett and see for yourself.

The Westin Poinsett is an experience to be realized and then afterwards , treasured. Located directly on MAIN STREET in downtown greenville, this grand old hotel reaks of OLD WORLD CHARM. I was honored to stay at this gem for an entire week, a birthday gift to me from my family. The location, helpfulness of the Concierge, and friendlyness of the staff make this visit one to remember. I was greeted immediately with a smile upon check in. I stay on the 5th Floor ( out of 11 floors) in room 504. The room was large with the most comfortable HEAVENLY SLEEP bed, a large tv, and a fabulous view overlooking the bricked courtyard and very large water fountain below. Anytime I had a question about the local restuarants, shopping, or daily activity, Janice Smith at the concierge desk was genuinely elated to assist me. Outside the hotel doors are tree lined streets resplendant with art shops, ice cream stores, cup cake bakery, exotic popcorn poppery, gift shops, and restuarants of all styles. There is a CVS pharmacy just one block away should you require, and you simply must , as often as possible, take the time to walk down to Liberty Bridge, and stroll along the soothing banks of the Reedy River. The falls are a fantastic sight and not to be missed. The lobby area had fresh baked cookies, live piano music, and there is a bar and restaurant. The hotel possess GRAND BALL ROOMS for your special events, and the thoughtfulness of the Concierge extended to chocolate convered strawberries being delivered to my room in celebration of my birthday. For one night , for one week, or better yet a longer extended stay, the Westin Poinsett in Downtown Greenville sets the standard for quality, customer care, and comfort. Take my advice, stay here and enjoy the pleasant memories for a lifetime. Thanks WESTIN POINSETT. I hope to see you again soon. Lonnie Branch

This Westin has a lot of great charm and character that so often alludes the Westin model. I love the Westin chain, because you always know what you are going to get. But in that formulaic portfolio everyone once a while an old grand hotel sneaks in and manages to hold onto that romanticism of hotel now past. This is one of those hotels.

Stairways here and there. Knobs on old doors. You enter through a lower lobby, that serves as opening act to the grand reveal when the elevator doors open and the grand lobby welcomes you. It doesn't need to do any of the modern tricks of the trade like a water wall, techno lights, it just embraces you and seduces you with its southern charm that simply says "welcome".

You have two eating options here. The first is at the hotel, which is more reserved much like the grand dame herself. However, connected to the hotel is another restaurant called Nose Dive. If you locked the outside world for a second you would swear you were in the middle of Melrose in LA. Where these hipsters live outside of the restaurant I don't know, but they certainly match the quality of the food and atmosphere. This is a must do attraction as part of the hotel.

The rooms are great. King size compared to any Manhattan alternative. But it is Greenville, so no pay-per-view to watch with discretion here. But they do have really fast and free wi-fi. Yes, it's free and it's fast. This any business traveler will tell you is like a surprised treat for dessert. Yes the beds are heavenly. How they make it feel like you are sleeping on a cloud where at any minute a Care Bear will pop up to fluff your cloud I don't know, but they do it. The room does not seem to have a electrical socket at every turn like some newer hotels do, but seriously a minor inconvenience here.

The gym is very good. Yes, it is in the same Westin gym pattern, but presented in a spacious way where everyone is not on top of each other. The layout is reminiscent of the types of gyms you tend to find when a spa is adjacent (although no spa is here).

But Westin just started this feature, or at least it's new to me, where through a deal with new balance they will lend you workout gear: shoes, socks, shorts, shirt ( the socks you get to keep but everything else is returned). I didn't use the shoes, because I had my own, but I did use the rest. Seriously, this is an awesome feature and I will never pack gym clothes again when this option is offered. The clothes were clean and extremely comfortable with the latest dry fit technology. At the end there is no packing damp, smelly clothes in your luggage. You just put it all back in the sack and return it to them.

Finally, there is a free shuttle service to the airport in a brand new BMW. Not a bad way at all to make it back to the airport.

The staff was very accommodating and professional. A great hotel with a lot of beauty and history.
I would definitely use the facilities again. The business room was very clean and set up wonderfully.

Excellent Customer Service. I had perishable merchandise shipped to the hotel from London, England. The staff took care to ensure my package was kept safe and in the necessary controlled environment. Hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel management went above and beyond helping us secure our boarding passes before heading to the airport when computer system was disabled in their customer business center.

My school administration needed a place to meet with teachers that was not a typical school environment. We wanted to treat them with something nice and give them a comfortable environment where they could open up and know that we care. The Westin Poinsett made that happen for us. The room was gorgeous, set with refreshments, pens, pads, and a boardroom table that I wanted to take back to our school. Ms. Jessie met me at the door to inform me that should would be taking care of everything I needed. She was awesome!!! Overall, this spot was perfect and we WILL be back.
