My husband had a convention being held at the Francis Marion so I just had to force myself to join him for the week. What luck that it was during the huge arts festival Spoleto. The park across the street had art every day and there were concerts everyday and night in multiple locations. The hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Our room was on the 11th floor with a gorgeous view of the park, the city and the water. The bed linens and beds were excellent but as mentioned in other reviews the bathrooms were european. Full sized tub and a sink and toilet crammed in. You can wash your feet, do your business, and brush your teeth in one position! That being said, the size of the bathroom didn't disturb us. The hotel staff was courtteous and the concierges knowledgable and helpful. I loved the convenience of the computer access in the lobby which included use of a printer. We ate lunch on the last day at the Swamp Fox Restaurant and were very happy with the food. I had shrimp and grits which were excellent and DH had fried green tomatoes which were also excellent. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.
