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.

    Our daughter's wedding reception was at The Westin. We considered a number of other venues but hands down, the best value was here. Out of town friends complimented the service, never having to wait in line at the bar or for food, how delicious the food was and how beautiful the ballroom looked. Our Saturday night reception was beautiful and the convenience of having guests stay at The Westin added to everyone's enjoyment of the weekend. And in September, the Saturday Farmers Market is just steps out the front door. We couldn't have been more pleased!

    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.
