Long weekend stay

Generally good service, nice staff and convenient location. The elevator is extremely slow. If your room is at a lower floor, it would be a good idea to walk the stairs.

Loved this hotel

Recommend Valet Parking for the convenience of getting in and out quickly- great staff - so friendly - it was for our anniversary and received a gift from hotel staff of chocolate covered strawberries. Beautiful hotel and so close to all the great shopping on King Street, Highly recommend.

Hotel Needs update or better cleaning

This gorgeous hotel is located downtown in the middle of everything, great restaurants ( please try Virginia's for lunch or Joe's Pasta- awesome Caesar salad but the pasta was absolutely fantastic. Seasoning is amazing as long as you can handle a garlic after taste. If you drive to Shem creek, sunset is gorgeous! From hotel you have easy walk to many sites. Right by museums and visitor center. (By the way, watch out! The visitor center will offer you these free tickets if you go watch a 90 min presentation for time share!!! Don't waist your time!!!! It's not worth it!!!! They held us for over 2 hours!!!!) The room was nice but tiny bathroom. Toilete needs serious cleaning. Nice staff. Great breakfast at swamp fox restaurant at hotel Three elevators but the day we were leaving two were broken and third one acting up..., scary!!!!! So we will probably try another hotel if we ever go back.

Please go see Middleton and Boone plantations no matter what! Better time should be in spring when azaleas are blooming. Breathtaking yards! Avoid summer. You will feel miserable!!!!

20th anniversary

Great hotel. Friendly staff. I let them know I would be there for my 20th anniversary and asked for a room with a view. Well Ms. Ross went above and beyond. We got a room with a great view of the park and USS Yorktown in the distance. There was chocolate coverd strawberries and a card congratulating us waiting in our room. Thank you!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking is not connected to the hotel but you need to expect to walk in charleston.

Great Hotel

great location, easily able to walk to restaurants and attractions. Hotel lobby is beautiful and staff was extremely friendly. Only issues were extremely slow elevator and expensive overnight parking(but able to park in several lots around downtown with the one overnight rate).

Perfect Location with Elegance and History

We stayed at the Francis Marion while moving our daughter into College of Charleston. The hotel is conveniently located and in an elegant historical building. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are on the smaller side, but very comfortable and kept very clean. We would definitely stay there again.
