My wife and I booked a room at the Francis Marion and told them in advance that my wife was very sensitive to paint smells, molkd, mildew and otyher odors. What did they do? They painted the bathroom before our stay and the smell in the tiny room was overwhelming. The windows were painted shut so you couldn't get fresh air and they pump a sweet sickly perfume throughout the entire hotel central air system.
We both had headaches within a half hour.
We changed rooms and the smell was just as bad. We ended up leaving and going down the street to the Holiday Inn on Calhoun Street, which, by the way, was absolutely wonderful. They have a fabulous concierge there and the rooms were large, clean and the price was even better for a last minute booking.
