My wife and I booked a room in advanced and the hotel held the room with a credit card (normal procedure). When we got there we were able to check in a little early, which was great because there is so much to see and do around town. We absolutely loved the renovated finishes and the historical background. However, when... More

The hotel restored in a 1920s style has a lot of character while still having all of the modern comforts. It was like staying at a 5-star hotel, but at nowhere near the price. It was a good place to come back to every night as we explored the area.

We were there over a weekend (Saturday and Sunday nights) and it was very quiet in the hotel and historic town centre. The hotel gives the guest a lovely sense of its historic origins due its skilful restoration. On arrival the welcome was efficient. However, during our 2 night stay we only saw 2 receptionists, and no other hotel staff,... More

We read about the General Francis Marion Hotel in Preservation magazine and wanted to stop in Marion, VA to visit the grave of Sherwood Anderson. The hotel is a nice surprise; an unusual mix of Deco and Gothic that is not over-restored. For example the room doors retain the louvers -- now filled in -- that were necessary for pre-AC... More

The hotel is excellent and the staff are the best!! We came in as a group of about 20 people. Karen, the Hotel Marketing Manager was very helpful to everyone. I've stayed here many times now and she is always helpful. Everything was perfect. The rooms are extremely clean and we attended a wine dinner sponsored by the Hotel and... More

Staff is very friendly and wants to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are very comfortable, bar is very nice. Just a great place to spend some time. This hotel has 36 wonderful rooms. The local restaurants make this a really great small town.

The hotel is fortunate to have a great downtown location; there are a lot of choices for eating and drinking right outside the hotel front door. The hotel restaurant and lounge, The Black Rooster is always a great experience and we certainly appreciate your comments.

For the second year in a row, a group of our NC based car club used the General Francis Marion Hotel as our base camp for a weekend drive through some of the beautiful mountain roads around Marion. The hospitality provided to our group by the hotel staff was second to none. The hotel Marketing Manager, Karen, was especially helpful... More

I took my son to enroll in a nearby boarding school. We ended up spending the night in this hotel. It was charming and reasonably priced. I had the trout in the restaurant and it was good. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms very luxurious. What an unexpected surprise!

I was really excited to visit this hotel because of the history within it. Upon arriving, we parked in the rear parking lot. Entering through a small alley doorway, where you could hear the water dripping down the drain from the roof top air conditioner. Upon entering, my first thought was the smell of "old." There were wood planked floors... More

We take a great deal of pride in our hotel’s history. The artwork in the hotel, in the rooms and on the walls of the public spaces, is representative of art work that was popular during the 1920’s. The card room features the front page of the Smyth County News dated Thursday, January 27, 1927. The article was written prior... More
