The Westin Poinsett
Upon opening in 1925, The Westin Poinsett was deemed "Carolina's Finest," ushering in a tradition of luxury and service that now exceeds 85 years. The elegant 12-story hotel has been renovated to its original grandeur, worthy of early notable guests, including Amelia Earhart, John Barrymore, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Bobby Kennedy, and the resplendent Liberace. Located in the heart of downtown Greenville on Main Street, The Westin Poinsett's iconic lobby bar boasts a sophisticated cocktail hour with jazz piano, popular with the local business community.
Local residents and visitors alike continue to fill the 4 diamond hotel's dining room and ballrooms for formal events and dances, as it is the city's premier venue for southern sophistication. The city's best restaurants and entertainment surround the hotel, as well as a newly landscaped park, ideal for running or biking along the Reedy River.
The hotel was named for prominent American botanist and statesman Joel Poinsett, a South Carolina native, also responsible for the Poinsettia flower's introduction to America.
