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.

    Greenville's Westin Poinsett Let Us ENJOY the Wedding We Planned!

    Whether you're the bride or her support staff (mom!), you've probably figured out that planning a wedding is a happy, grueling, detail-heavy business with lots of moving parts. Ours was a large wedding, planned from afar, and my goal was to still be friends with my daughter when it was over. (We also preferred not to have to sell our firstborn to pay for it all!)

    If you want success, start by finding the best support people you can find. Greenville's Westin Poinsett was exactly that for us. When their event supervisor left for a new job six months into our process, I panicked. Then Sarah Blasingame (their sales pro) stepped to the plate for us. She listened to what we were trying to achieve, offered suggestions, changed directions on a dime when we did (which was a lot!) and never made us feel like we were a burden or even a pain in the foot. She was a monumental help throughout the remaining 6 months of our planning process; she knew Greenville vendors thoroughly so no matter what I needed, transportation buses, picnic baskets, etc., she had options. I loved that she answered the phone every time I called or called me back quickly. Most of all, she had or quickly found answers for my every question and when the big day(s) came, she made every function happen on time, every time, with seemingly effortless ease.

    Since none of us currently live in Greenville, our daughter's wedding actually became a destination wedding with friends and family traveling across multiple states to celebrate. The Greenville Westin Poinsett was perfect, with beautifully appointed, different size ballrooms for events together, an elegant, comfortable lobby bar and the greatest staff around.

    5 Great Reasons Greenville's Westin Poinsett Became Our Wedding Venue of Choice:

    1. In today's wedding world you pay for reserved room blocks that go unbooked. The Westin let me add rooms 10 at a time as RSVPs came in instead of making a wild guess about how many people would be able to attend. When we needed one last room, Sarah found it.

    2. Their breakfast restaurant provides a great meeting place each morning, as does the comfortable lobby and downstairs bar area. (Best ever coffee!) The staff at both were just extraordinary and there is no way to explain the consistently high level of service each person offered, always with a smile. The rooftop bar was also a big draw, and a great venue itself.

    3. Stuff happens. For us, last-minute RSVPs and cancellations made planning tough. When we got 42 reservations for a welcome event, after the call-by date, Sarah only said, "No problem." She and her crew quietly set up a larger room for our pre-wedding coffee gathering while we were off to a rehearsal dinner!

    4. The Poinsett was able to provide our floral designer with a convenient space to create, sort and package florals for the entire weekend.

    5. My daughter and I went to Greenville for 5 or 6 pre-planning meetings and tested a different hotel each time. The Poinsett was our unanimous choice, hands down because along with a fabulous, historic facility, great food and an uber-convenient location, their entire staff is 110% friendly, helpful, accommodating and efficient. (We're pretty sure they don't sleep!) A fun example was their valet service, all of whom repeatedly went over and above with umbrellas, directions, extra parking options and anything else that was needed.

    Give yourself a break--call The Greenville Poinsett for your wedding or other event. Their service standard means that your event will stand head and shoulders above the rest--and ensure that the memories you make are the kind you want to keep forever! Thanks, Westin Poinsett staff and hats off to Sarah Blasingame.

    Perfect Venue!

    From the front desk staff to the serving team, the entire hotel service was impeccable, hospitable and truly top notch. Our guests and family raved about the team. Our wedding was the most romantic, perfect celebration thanks to the Westin staff! The wedding coordinator, Sarah, is a delight to work with. From our initial conversation, tasting visit and planning calls, she has always been so positive, reassuring and attentive. I am also so impressed at how well she ensured every detail was perfect. Any bride would be lucky to work with her to plan their special day.
