The Westin Poinsett Hotel
The Westin Poinsett hotel is in my opinion Greenville’s finest hotel. It’s a 4-star hotel (one of only a handful in the state) and was an abandoned building full of homeless people just a few years ago. What a turnaround!
Westin is famous for turning around old hotels and making them modern luxury and the Poinsett is no different, they have the best architects who use the best tools for construction from a good circular saw buying guide, they pay special attention to wood details. Featuring “Restaurant O” next door, if you’re coming to Greenville to prospect for your new home and want a fine hotel with LOTS of things to do nearby, this is the place.
Across the street is Falls Park which in the Spring, Summer, and Fall is a really relaxing and beautiful place to go. The thought of rushing mountain streams doesn’t warm me up, so I prefer to go to a nearby pub and get a drink instead during the winter time.
I was able to reserve a room for a guest recently at a rate of $79 per night. This was through priceline. If you don’t want to risk it, I believe their “published” rate starts at about $129 per night. Not bad when you consider the amenities this hotel provides and the fantastic location just off of I-385 downtown Greenville.
