Spacious comfortable room nicely furnished. We had a corner room that was exceptionally bright with a view of the Smoky Mountains. Staff was excellent. Striking lobby was beautifully restored. Nice bar. Terrific breakfast. There is a good restaurant in the hotel.

Thank you so much for choosing the Westin Poinsett! We also believe in starting the day with a terrific breakfast, that’s why we have our Eat Well: Superfoods program, an important Westin initiative.

My husband and I were in town for weekend activities at Furman, and once again stayed at the Poinsett in the heart of downtown Greenville. As a participant in the Historic Hotels of America program with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Poinsett has all the features of a well-appointed, classic hotel with the comfortable amenities and helpful staff anticipated with the designation. Best of all, one can just walk out the hotel entrance and walk the streets and pathways of Greenville's fantastic reimagined downtown.

Room Tip: Room 409 is a suite with a comfortable sitting room.

I recently stayed at the Westin for a relaxing birthday weekend. The staff were extremely welcoming and professional, the room was impeccable, and the service was excellent. When visiting Greenville, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I was very impressed.

This is my third stay at the Westin Poinsett and certainly not my last. Having stayed in many of the hotels in Greenville, I have found this to be my favorite. My daughter is a first year student at Furman University and I travel on a regular basis to see her (sometimes without my husband). When by myself, I still feel safe staying at the Poinsett as the front staff (Jason in particular) always remembers me by name. The in room dining staff (Megan) even remembers some of my special requests at breakfast and brings them when I forgot to ask! That not only makes me feel special but also makes me feel that I am an "authentic guest". Dru saw to all my reservation needs and made sure my room was quiet, snug and cozy since I have "mommy ears" and can hear everyone walking up and down the halls. I always slept quietly and don't hear a thing! I couldn't ask for more and will be back in the next few weeks.
Thank you Westin Poinsett.

We held a departmental off-site for three days at the Westin. From the moment we pulled up, the service was just incredible. The lobby is one of the old fashioned ones with chair groupings, and we all used that as a rendezvous spot before and after dinners in the really fetching downtown Greenville. During our work sessions, we enjoyed the best in food—catered by the hotel. Fresh, light food, really flavorful, and the banquet captain, Yveline, and her staff were just wonderful. The rooms are beautifully appointed and clean, and the fitness "room" is more like a small gym, featuring lots of space, a variety of equipment choices, daily newspapers, and obvious care in keeping it clean. The 1920s decor is beautifully restored with marble and tile, great staircases. I would recommend this for meetings, business travel, or vacation/pleasure. A truly great hotel with professional and courteous staff.

Went here for work related convention and everything was first class from guest rooms to the meeting rooms. All staff were very friendly and helpful and food was great. Building is very historic and is in the middle of down town and within walking distance to anything if you find a need to leave. Will stay here again for sure

My wife and I recently stayed at the Westin Poinsett for a Trek Travel ride camp in Greenville, SC, and I was blown away by the fantastic service. Great front desk, amazing restaurant service, food and staff, and all around a great stay. Every morning we would start with their awesome breakfast buffet (shout out to their omelet cooks) which had a wonderful selection with many excellent choices. The servers were wonderful...very warm and personable. They even remembered us from our last stay in October 2013.
The front desk staff were very friendly and engaging, not to mention, efficient. We arrived right after a large bus of tourists arrived and there may have been 8-10 people in line. I probably waited only 10 minutes to get helped. OUTSTANDING!
Its a perfect location, in the heart of downtown Greenville.
Thank you for the great experience!
