I had reserved a two-room suite with a king size bed for a 25th anniversary weekend. Upon arrival, we were given a large open room with a small bed and a full kitchen (ie not what I reserved). Went back down to the desk, was sent to another room, which turned out to have a king size bed BUT was just a regular room, no suite. Went back down only to be told the Francis Marion Suite I had reserved and pre-paid was not available. After much haggling with the manager, I was comped a night and allowed to have late checkout on our final day. BUT the next day in spite of a do not disturb sign on our door we were rudely awakened by housecleaning staff. Add to that the fact that the hot water was tepid at best and the "full bathroom" was smaller than the one in my college dorm, and this was not a pleasant experience. I would not stay at this hotel again.
