Our first time staying at the Francis Marion. We chose this hotel because of it's excellent location. Near shopping and restaurants. The hotel is historic and the room gives a feel of being back in that time. It is quaint and we had a lovely view of the park. The bathroom is very small but that's due to the architecture of the times. The room however was perfect. Front staff were always courteous and helpful. We had Monique take care of our room and she was a delightful surprise. She took care of our every need with a smile. Wish we could take her with us on all our trips... Thank you Monique from the Golden Girls. Enjoyed our stay thank you to all at the Francis Marion Hotel.

Francis Marion in heart of a great area of Charleston; many amenities close by and all within walking distance. Never used my car after I arrived. There were 4 Ubers within 3 minutes anytime I would need if going to dinner or out late. Close to Marion Square and a great Saturday AM weekly market. As usual the Charleston weather cooperated and was beautiful as advertised.

Room Tip: Sothern views were not really pleasing, rooms comfortable and clean; elevators slow; my overall Charleston experience was very good!!!!!

I loved it - walking distance to everything- neat clean and wonderful service.
Rooms are not huge( some complain of the size )
But it’s ahistorical hotel - not a Holiday Inn
I would stay here again in a second - in fact I’m bringing my family
For Thanksgiving

Great location and excellent service for the price.
Restaurant is excellent. Staff is friendly.
Small room however, value and safe for the location.
I would recommend if you want to be closer to the market and downtown area.
Parking is close by and flexible.
