Rated 3 out of 5 by Pal467 Not 5-Star Quality
This hotel is rated 5-stars but fails to reach that standard by missing the small details that verify that rating. Room service did not heat the breakfast pastry and bacon; housekeeping was very loud in talking and
laughing in the hall outside a room with a
do not disturb; dining room temperature was cold; etc. Just small details that make the
difference between ok and excellent. Overall, it is an elegant, historic hotel but needs to refine the details

I appreciate the email. Our stay was great. We appreciate the special attention given to our requests. And we really appreciated the Anniversary surprise that came to our room Sat. night. Your entire staff went out of their way to make our stay the best “hotel” experience we have ever had. I will highly recommend the Westin to friends, family and coworkers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim1609 Love, love, love this modern and historical hotel!
Everything about this hotel speaks to what Westin and starwood brands stand for.
Smart, friendly, and welcoming staff right from valet and it continues with the front desk. They always have my reservation laid out in advance so check in is super easy, and they always recognize your spg level with appreciation and even welcome baskets from the GM.
The hotel itself is in a great location right on main st so walking to everything is very easy.
The hotel is quite old but it has been updated to make it feel modern while maintaining the antique charm.
The restaurant has a very nice breakfast .
All in all, this what an SPG hotel should feel like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mulligan1 Great historic hotel
Over a period of 10-15 years,Mm wife and I have been staying at this hotel every few years when visiting for weddings of children of friends. We enjoy historic hotels, and the Poinsett has always been first rate in terms of room quality, personal service, and food. We highly recommend it to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by timstr Disappointed in attempted resolution of issue.
The location is ideal - the best spot available in Greenville. It is central to all the must see/do attractions near by. The hotel itself is nicely appointed, however we had an issue that made the overnight stay uncomfortable. When we arrived our room's temperature was 80 degrees. We set the thermostat to 69 to cool off and left for the evening. When we returned the temp was still 80 degrees and stuffy. The AC was not functional, only hot air would come from the vent. We called the front desk for help. A representative came up and had no luck fixing the issue. The offered solution was "I can bring you a fan and we can open the window". As you know, hotel windows only open an inch or two so the fan did little to solve the heat issue. The evening was uncomfortable for sleeping. I asked the front desk for relief on the bill or a voucher for a future stay since this visit was unsatisfactory. They would not do that, and offered only to discount the stay $40. There are other hotels nearby and I guess for future stays I will try them instead since the Westin was not interested in trying to do more to win us back. Sad really - everything there points to be option, except for the response to the issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TiredToday Headboard
This is the only hotel where I have stayed where the headboard on the bed is not securely attached to the wall in order to prevent banging through the wall to the next room -- my room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjnc1995 Just as expected
My wife and I stayed here last year for the first time and we pleasantly surprised. The hotel is wonderful , but the staff is remarkable. Jason, at the front desk, should be complimented....very helpful.
