Our experiences in Eleuthera and Turtle Cove were unique, challenging at times but unquestionably extraordinary and fulfilling. What made this trip a success and milestone among our travels? -the isolated villa on Turtle Cove with its unique, off-the-grid experience, - the abundance of sea life easily observable from the dock and - the serenity and quality time together without ...

... stay with him for the night in Los Angeles. We are hooking up with three of Sunnie's cousins while there... (since most of you all were at the wedding, you know that she has exactly 489 cousins). Then, off to Auckland, New Zealand the next night.

We leave LA at 10:30pm on June 21 and land in Auckland at 6:30am on June 23. We will skip right over June 22. We never liked that day, anyway.

Thanks for letting us share.

... Drummond-Brown) walked that circle of red bricks while pleading the blood, and nothing but the blood for our Civil Rights Leaders, both living and slain. Suddenly a passage from the Holy Bible came in to remembrance for our leaders named and unnamed on those bricks "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way" (Psalm 37:23)

Our group broke for lunch at 12:15 hrs., at none other than the famous Varsity restaurant, and I must say that is was a fulfilling and excellent lunch! Once we ate, onto Georgia ...

We'll be off again on Tuesday and wanted to give you a link for our new blog.

This blog doesn't send out email notices for new entries so if you want to follow us, we suggest you put our blog page in you favorites. We'll be spending a lot of time on the beach and exploring off the grid and so won't be uploading everyday, but should have access to wifi for uploading several times during our stay.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Poinsett, Greenville

    Great location!

    from

    We loved the location of the hotel as it was downtown and very convenient to areas of town we needed to get to for a wedding. We walked down the streets of Greenville two days in a row. The tree lined streets were beautiful both day and night. Many shops to explore and a few eateries and ice cream parlors.

    Getting back to hotel. We loved the lobby areas and the bar seating areas. We ate in the formal dining room for lunch and the food was very good and different. Shrimp and grits, crab cake sandwiches and Chicken Pot Pie...YUM! Room service for breakfast was very nice. Large portions that could feed two.

    Our rooms were purchased through Priceline for $55 a night. The rest of the wedding party paid $95 and up. We were truly expecting to get a Priceline room (no view and small room), but instead we were pleasantly surprised! We had a king bed corner room and our children had a double corner. We added a rollaway for our third child as the girls do not like to share a bed and our son could not sleep in either double. Both rooms were nicely decorated in a subtle and formal ways. The headboards were black Toile and draperies were black and gold. The furnishings new as well as the carpeting. The ice bucket and glasses were kept in an armoire with the TV. A side chair, desk and desk chair completed the room. Paintings and a large mirror graced the walls along with the long draperies.

    The only downside to the room was a small closet and bathroom. Although the bath was newly tiled and had nice fixtures, the size was REALLY small.

    The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our two night stay very much.

    SO SO

    from

    I got an excellent rate on priceline. I was pumped! The hotel is old. It looks nice and am happy with the price I paid, but had I paid regular price (or even travelocity price) I would have been very upset. I won't return simply because I was not impressed... I recommend Crowne Plaza-Roper Mtn in Greenville!

    Never dissapointing!

    from

    A wonderful Hotel in a Wonderful location. Beautiful historic hotel with one of the most beautiful lobbies you will ever see. Location in the quaint dowtown Greenville area cannot be beat. If you want to book, book on Priceline. I can get this hotel for under $70 most nights. It is an incredible value either way!

    We always stay at the Westin Pointsett!

    from

    We always stay at the Pointsett. We love the decor and the old Southern charm of the hotel. Staff is very nice, we always get good service from the valets and housekeeping(It doesn't hurt to tip them) The heavenly beds are the main reason we stay here.The restaurant is good, if a little pricy, but the service is always good there as well.Lots of other places to eat within easy walking distance. I am going to plug a local favorite-do not miss the ice cream at the Marble Slab right down the street. Wonderful!

    Wonderful old hotel

    from

    We have stayed at the Poinsett twice and have never had a complaint about any aspect of our stay. The rooms have been extremely clean and the staff has always been very helpful. The location is great. Downtown Greenville is very charming and offers lots of shopping and culture. I highly recommend the Poinsett to anyone who wants a break from the normal chain hotels. This place has lots of character.

    Westin Poinsett is a great deal

    from

    The hotel is absolutely beatiful. Especially the lobby and restaurant. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The heavenly bed is a perfect description. The service is wonderful and the main street area has everything anyone could want.

    I loved the heavenly bath products, but they have switched to some very nasty smelling alternative.

    The best part about the this hotel is that you can book it for $60.00 on priceline. This is during the week and on the weekends. Do not pay full price.

    Disappointed

    from

    We loved the location of the hotel--it was great to walk around Main Street, especially at night. The room was very average and we were missing some things, including our ice bucket, and the bathroom floor was dirty when we arrived. We also had difficulty controlling the temperature. It was very humid, even with the air conditioner, and we never got comfortable. Overall, we were disappointed and expected a nicer room since we'd heard so much about the renovation. For what you pay, you'd be better off staying at a Hampton Inn. Still, the lobby and restaurant were very beautiful and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The Poinsett Room is also gorgeous and looks like it would be a wonderful place for a wedding reception.

    A little disappointed

    from

    The Heavenly Beds were outstanding, however we did not have some of the other Heavenly items in our room as described. i.e. Bath Sheet, bath robes, dual-head shower. The rooms were nice, and adequately equipped. The housekeeping left something to be desired. The second day we had to call to have the bathroom floor cleaned of hair from the previous occupants. They also did not change our bedsheets daily. Did not appreciate being awakened at 5:30 a.m. by the alarm clock left on from the previous occupants, and then again at 7:00a.m. from the brick street cleaner. Did not eat at the hotel, however downtown Greenville is extremely charming with an abundance of various shops and dining experiences.

    Downtown Greenville

    from

    We too, stayed at the Westin Hotel. Downtown Greenville is a wonderful place to visit. We even found time to visit The Spa at West End. It is a first class spa that is worth a visit if you travel to Greenville..

    Downtown Greenville Westin

    from

    The Westin Poinsett is a first class hotel. Situated in downtown Greenville, the old hotel has been re-built from top to bottom. The staff was friendly and helpful, and free transportation was provided to and from the airport. The rooms are large and clean, although floor in the bathroom is really nice, it is cold on the feet. A heat lamp would be a good addition. We stayed on the weekend, when the rate was lower. The hotel also has a great brunch on Sunday morning.
