We enjoyed our stay at the Francis Marion because of the location (central and easy to walk to our destinations) and the great service we received from the super friendly staff. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. It was easy to get a solid night's rest. All the staff, from the valets to the desk staff to the cleaning folks, were all friendly and eager to help any way they could.
The bathroom in our room was the size of a breadbox while the closet was about twice the size. I wondered why they didn't shift the door over so the bath could have more space. Cramped bathrooms are a minor inconvenience to me. I was more bothered by the cracking plaster walls in my room and the hotel in general. It just gave a feeling of neglect.
Overall I wouldn't mind staying here again if the price was right, but I'd also be open to trying other options in the area.
