The hotel lobby is beautiful and everyone was friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable but bathroom was a little on the small side. Overall, the hotel is amazing for the price and is a more affordable option in downtown Charleston. The location is great with the farmers market right next door on Saturday mornings! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

We booked last minute due to price and location, and we could not have been happier with our stay. We enjoyed the break from chain hotels while visiting Charleston for the first time. It was better than we expected.

This hotel is amazing. Friendly staff, clean room and a feeling of luxury. Coinvent location to pretty much anything you need to do in Charleston. Starbucks is even in accessible within the lobby. What a perk!

This property is perfect for staying in downtown Charleston if you want to be close to the shopping and dining options on King Street. It is also close to the waterfront and the market area. What makes it truly special is the amazing staff who go above and beyond to make your stay even better. The Swamp Fox has wonderful food and cocktails and there is a Starbucks in the lobby which is very handy. We will definitely be back!

Enjoyed our stay at the Francis Marion Hotel. Good meal at the restaurant but menu was exactly the same for the duration of our stay. Needs to vary the choices each day. Location of the hotel was perfect for us.

Our tour group was based here for 4 days. They provided a very nice conference room for several of our events. The rooms were nice, though they do show their age a bit. My room was a bit small - but adequate. (I had no view out the window - it faced a brick wall). The restaurant (The Swamp Fox) provided our breakfast and they were outstanding (though service was not adequate for our group size). It is centrally located, so I enjoyed walking in the area. Staff was always friendly and helpful. I thought the bed and pillows were a bit too soft, would have preferred something a bit more firm.

My stay at Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston was very pleasant. I want to go back for my next vacation. Don't miss visiting the Aquario, strolling cycling and a few drinks at pubs along king street. I will definitely return to Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston.

Wish I had stayed else where. I’m very upset with myself for paying this skiing for such an awful experience I didn’t feel safe or welcomed I couldn’t even count on a single person in that hotel to guide me in the town

Great location in the center of Charleston. Staffs are super friendly. Hotel is a little outdated but well maintained. Bath room is small especially the sink, can hardly hold any big items. Carpet is old, it would be better to be replaced. Cleaning staffs are ploites and hard working.
