The Westin was built in 1924 after being on South Main Street for over one hundred years. After the Great Depression, it started to get a lot of traction from local residents and quickly became known as “Carolina’s Finest.” By the mid 1950s, the motel industry boomed and made city hotels obsolete, causing the hotel to be foreclosed from 1971 to 1986. It was purchased in 1997 and the extensive renovation process began, transforming it from one of the most endangered historic sites in South Carolina to the same flamboyant hotel that hosted guests such as Amelia Earhart and Bobby Kennedy.

We had our dream wedding at The Westin Poinsett Hotel. The experience was phenomenal! Sarah was a delight to work with, always very attentive and responsive. The day of our wedding Sarah was unable to be present, but Yveline the event captain did an amazing job making sure that everything went as planned. The entire staff was friendly, professional and extremely attentive. If you are looking to have a worry free wedding done by professionals and are looking for exceptional world class experience we recommend The Westin Poinsett Hotel. The elegance and beauty of the hotel is magnificent, our photographer was able to capture some spectacular pictures.Sent on 10/28/2020

The Westin was a magical and elegant setting for our reception. The hotel staff was very professional and accommodating to all of our out of town guests. Sarah, our Westin appointed coordinator, was superb. She went above and beyond and was always a pleasure to work with.
The only hiccup was with guest bags that were to be given to people as they checked in. There were a total of 20 bags that had to be given. Some rooms did not get one, some got double, and some I had to personally call for them to receive it. This was the only stressful part since I was calling all the guests as they checked in to make sure they received a bag and then calling the hotel for them to run one up to them. All of this after Sarah and I spent significant time putting in the information to the system so the front desk staff would know exactly what to do as each room checked in. I was even charged for this service :(.
All in all it was amazing despite that small inconvenience.Sent on 10/20/2020

The Westin is the Highlight of downtown Greenville! We love every time we are able to capture a wedding there and I know you will love it!
Not only is this hotel a Greenville landmark and has all the historic charm and modern amenities you can imagine, they take great care treat every wedding as if it's the ONLY event going on. They could two or three weddings or events going on simultaneously and every group gets 110% of their efforts. This place really is classy. The staff is well dressed and makes sure everything is taken care of efficiently without getting in the way...the mark of true professionals. From the food to the banquet presentation to the friendly service, there's a reason why this venue is so highly sought after for couples planning their weddings and receptions. We LOVE photographing there too! So many creative possibilities.
The Westin Poinsett is an amazing place to perform at! Any of the ballrooms they have a gorgeous and well laid out to be accommodating and easy to use for your guests! Being right at the heart of downtown Greenville is awesome as well!
