This is a wonderful old hotel in a great location. There was a wine cooler in the room. The beds were very comfortable. It has a comfortable chair and a large TV. The rooms are very quiet. I would definitely consider another stay.

Hi, we do not have microwaves in the rooms. Some rooms do have a mini-fridge. You can request a room with a mini-fridge when making your reservation. We would love to have you stay at the Francis Marion Hotel!
