History
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.

    Refined perfection!

    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.
