Great place. Great service. Will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

It was beautiful, clean and quiet. Highly recommended.

GREAT LOBBY BUT BEYOND THAT JUST SHABBY. The room was very hot. One chair made up the so-called sitting area

The staff was so nice & helpful. They made you feel like you were their only guest ! They were all very helpful with places to see, restaurants, shopping & tours. The rooms were clean & comfortable. The bathrooms were a little small, but not unexpected for an older property. The location was great. The city Dash was 1/2 block away & could get you to the historic district in minutes. I would stay here any time I would be in Charleston! Thank you to the staff of the Francis Marion!!

Excellent location. Within shopping area and very close to other attractions. Interesting places are within walking distance from the hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel is clean. It is older, though, and could use an update. Also, the complimentary water in my fridge in the room wasn't sealed

The property and the room were very nice. However, the parking and the garage system proved to be a nightmare for us. First, the parking is inconvenient at half a block from the hotel. However, the real problem is the automatic parking system. When we were leaving at 4am to catch an early plane, it would not let us out. Mistakenly, our parking card terminated a day earlier than our stay and we were stuck at 4am and about to miss our flight. I had to run a half block back to the front desk and even with a hotel employ speaking for us, it was very difficult to get the gate attendant to open the gate. Fortunately, we made our flight, but we learned our lesson. We will never stay where there is an unmanned parking garage, again.

BEAUTIFUL LOBBY, NICE STAFF, DECENT SIZE ROOMS, GOOD WIFI, GREAT LOCATION. BATHROOM A BIT SMALL, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, ITS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IF YOU GET A DEAL ON THE RATE. THE SWAMP FOX REST IS ALSO GREAT.

Very small bathroom. Furnishings are getting shabby.

Great location, fantastic staff, beautiful hotel, and a wonderful restaurant right in the hotel!

Location we could walk to so many great places. And cleanliness.

Loved the charm of the lobby and rooms. The staff was beyond accommodating and friendly. I travel often and was really impressed by the level of courtesy.
