Walking distance to all of the things that make Charleston the beautiful city that it is, and southern hospitality are big points for us. I'm certainly happy to see you and your conference attendees felt welcome and comfortable on your stay. Thank you, Stephen Parker,...More

We stayed at the Francis Marion for three nights. This is not a glitzy five-star new hotel; it is a hotel with history. Thus, the bathroom was small and the closet tiny. But the room, on the 11th floor, had wonderful views of historic Charleston,...More

Staff, perfection! Hospitality shines through time and time again! Extremely comfortable reception area with complimentary water and the occasional pecans! Location, just a stones throw from the bustling crowd, and across from the oasis of the park! Lovely spot..

I would say to at least spend a long weekend there, but you could certainly make a week trip out of it as well! We found that this hotel was a great walking distance from downtown, and didn't use our car to drive anywhere... More
