The Francis Marion Hotel, located in the heart of historic Charleston, South Carolina, was the largest and grandest in the Carolinas when it opened in 1924. Named for General Francis Marion, the ``Swamp Fox`` of the American Revolution, the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston re-opened in 1996 after a $12 million National Trust award-winning restoration, and is once again ``Charleston`s Grand Hotel``.

The staff are wonderfully helpful and accommodating. The hotel's location is hard to beat: right off a beautiful historic park and on the main shopping thoroughfare through the city - King Street. It is also one of the tallest buildings around, so you can always find your way back. The lobby is an elegant pre-war reception area that has the wonderful feeling of old-world Charleston. Free WiFi is a nice plus. Only gripe is that the rooms would be kept with the same attention and flair as the be... Read more

Hotel is perfect location to everything in Charleston. You can walk everywhere or catch the free trolley. Rooms are beautiful. Great onsite restaurant. Top notch staff who know the area and can give a locals view on where to go and what to do.

I stayed for just one night May 2016 and was very impressed from check-in to check-out. I pulled up after 10pm in the valet lane in front of the Hotel and ran inside to check-in and get information on where to park. The young woman at the front desk was very friendly, professional and personable. I knew from that interaction that the hotel would compliment her attitude. The lobby looks presidential to say the least. Parking is next door in a garage about a third second walk from the lobby. Easy.... Read more

Came here twice two Christmas's in a row. Got both times for around $110 a night through priceline. Picked the prepicked price for 4 star at got this hotel.

When U star here, turn left and go about 10 doors down and have a drink at he Cocktail club, and get the bacon infused popcorn, yum yum. The restaurant on pr... Read more

Me and my wife stopped here for 2 nights on our road trip of the Deep South and the hotel was clean and beautiful looking. The staff were great people and super friendly, especially Vinnie the doorman (and sorry but I can't remember the other guys name) who recommended some great places to eat. We had our room upgraded due to us having to wait a little whilst another couple were being seen to which was great. Then once we had settled into the room, we had a knock on the door to find we had bee... Read more

Definitely recommend this hotel. Perfect location. Clean and well decorated rooms. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel was updated, but still maintains it's old school charm. Coffee/Tea in the lobby was a nice touch.

This hotel is very conveniently located and has a lovely, spacious lobby. The rooms are nicely decorated but be aware that the bathrooms (at least in the 3 rooms my friends and I occupied) were tiny. It would have been nice to have a small refrigerator in the room - an amenity that most hotels have. Staff was polite and friendly.

We stayed at this hotel for a conference at a "special rate" of $210/night. Note, self parking in the structure next to the hotel is $17/day. The outside of the building looks like a simple brick square. Inside, the lobby has the "old opulence" of the southern charm. However this is not a large lobby, so don't expect the shock and awe of say. . .the Charleston place hotel lobby. The lobby area looks like there might be a bar there, but we were there in the summer during Spoleto and the bar ... Read more

Staff was very helpful and attentive. Doors were always opened for us. Concierge was helpful and had good suggestions. Hotel is beautiful. Great location for good food and Ft Sumter tour access. We were going to self park but our Tahoe with Yakima carrier wouldn't fit into the garage. Staff graciously valet parked it for self parking price. We saw it parked in an alley parking space the next morning with service vehicles. We asked for a room with 2 beds. They were 2 FULL beds. Very small. And th... Read more

We spent a weekend at the hotel as part of a wedding. The hotel is in a fabulous central location near shops, restaurants and the historic district. This is an older hotel that has been somewhat updated. Our room was clean and generously sized but the bathroom was rather old - one small sink area and an older style tub/shower. No refrigerator in the room at all. The linens were good quality; the bathroom toiletries were minimal. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful and the restaurant... Read more

Great location with super nice staff! Swamp Fox restaurant was very nice in a town filled with great places to eat. We would choose the Francis Marion again! The view from our room was breath-taking. Thanks to the staff!

Bathroom was so small you could not turn around. It would get wet and so steamy that it took 20 minutes before you could see in the mirror. My towel slipped from my hand and fell in the toilet! It would be impossible for an overweight person to use that bathroom.

Historic hotel. Enjoyed the history of the property thru the years. Check in was easy, received a room with of view of the water. Small room. I would not recommend more than 2 people to room. Bathroom even smaller. Comfortable beds. Lavender scent in the lobby.

Getting into this hotel can be a be a wait because of the location. Don't get frustrated - location is part of the charm. Give yourself plenty of time. If you are coming in for a convention that starts the same day you arrive -- try to come in a day early. Staff is friendly and very helpful. If something happen out of the ordinary they will do their best to make it right.

Great location in historic district, walking distance to everything. Perfect location if taking cruise out of Charlestown only 1/2 mile from port. We could see the cruise ship from our window the morning we left
