Rated 2 out of 5 by Paul8413 Drop in service
I've stayed at this hotel many times for business and have had great service and a nice room. This time was visiting Greenville with my wife for a concert. Service was not so good and the room was very small. Hotel was booked, so was told another room was not available. First coffee maker in the room would turn off after brewing a half a cup. Staff replaced it with one that would not turn on. When I told the front desk at check out, they thought it was funny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tami55 Wonderful staff! Excellent location
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Raymond gave us a ride to dinner and returned to pick us up. That was a nice plus. I will definately stay at the Poinsett again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by havebusinesswilltravel Worst treatment to date as an SPG member.
I am for lack of a better word appalled at the treatment of my family and myself this stay. I have stayed at this location before and had no problems, but this time has been anything but. First we were told we could not be upgraded unless we paid, which fine, we had the rooms booked through a third party site which we never do but a new admin assistant thought they were helping. Regardless of that fact we are Platinum SPG members that stay exclusively at Starwood properties. Then we were told we would be in a room with two queen beds, well it was actually two double beds. So in the morning I asked to be moved to a room with a king and a roll away, checking online i confirmed there were still rooms available. I went to the front desk and was told Yeah I can do that, let me just check on something. And then when the front desk person returned she said "unfortunately we can't actually do that, we are in an oversold situation" It makes me question why we are even members of the SPG program. Ive never been so disappointed in an SPG property. If I had not already booked one additional stay here I would NEVER stay at this location again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wigstheome Classic Hotel with Excellent Service
Checked in around 8:30pm on a Saturday night. Valet was quick and efficient, as was the front desk. Was upgraded (as a Platinum) to a junior suite without asking. My room (406) was large and comfortable, and the bed was very comfortable. While I was out to dinner (American Grocery is a must visit), the hotel left a gift basket and a plate of delicious cookies -- too many in fact. Check out was quick and simple, and valet delivered my vehicle expeditiously. While this is an older facility, the hotel has great bones and is a classic grand dame. Located in the center of downtown Greenville, and terrific service makes it even better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dwight65 Floor Assignment
Our room assignment was on a floor with large wedding party. One after another small group came down the hall until 3:30 in the morning, each one very loud. Certainly did not want to dampen their spirits, but it strained our ability to rest. Will be more careful, if we return, to make sure we are not in similar situation again.

This hotel has lots of charm and character. The staff is friendly and most accommodating. They are excited to share the history of the hotel. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TowelUser Most hotels have this fault even great hotels
Wonderful stay at the Westin Poinsette. Staff rallied to fix unforeseen problems. However...my issue is not only with this hotel, but most others. You want us to be Green, and reuse towels. However, there is NOT ENOUGH ROOM TO HANG UP TOWELS, especially for two people. Put up more hooks and towel bars, and not over the toilet. I would act as I do at home, and not throw once used towels on the floor. And put a shelf or two in the bathroom for our own toiletries. There was plenty of space for that in our bathroom. Otherwise...everything was truly great...lots of electrical outlets...and lamps made the room very usable.
