Old Fashion Accommodation, Westin Touch

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

In 1924, $1.5 Million dollars was alot of money. A 200 room hotel however was desparately needed in Greenville at the time of the Southern Textile mills. A few years later however the Great Depression was in full swing and this money spent on an elegant hotel seemed outlandish. Luckily, the Poinsett Hotel made it through by charging occupants only $3 a night. Essentially, this grand hotel became one of the best values in the South at the time. Through slow decline however, the hotel lost its way around 1970. It became a senior citizens home until it was condemned in the late 80s. It sat that way until 2000, when Westin Hotels purchased the property and rebuilt it with $19 million dollars of renovation.

Today it is a beautiful showcase of Greenville's dedication to revitalizing its main street. The hotel boasts very comfortable "Heavenly Beds" and still gives off an old fashioned southern charm. On arrival, you are greeted by the doorman, and then the hotel staff was exceptionally friendly.

I hope you get the chance to see this lovely hotel, and as a teaser... make sure you go to the bottom floor past the shops to see some of the original tile work!

Although I live in town, my wife and I will take a day away and stay at the Westin Poinsett. Phenomenal Hotel with a deep history.

Unique Quality: Built in 1925 by W.L. Stoddard, the Westin Poinsett hotel was orginally the Poinsett Hotel, until it closed for approximately 20 years and remained vacant. It was then re-opened and given a $20 million renovation. Truly an amazing piece of Greenville History.

Directions: Located almost dead-center on Main Street in Downtown Greenville, and only about 4 blocks from Falls Park. By far, the best location with convenience to everything in downtown Greenville.
