My wife and I travel between Tennessee and Virginia several times a year. We had seen the General Francis Marion Hotel before but could not stay there because up until recently we always had our dog in tow so our hotel choices were limited.
While this hotel is not pet friendly, it more than makes up for it in every other way! The hotel is a unique blend of nostalgia and coolness that is hard to find these days. Atmosphere and character: A+ Friendly helpful staff: A++ There is a terrace balcony overlooking Main Street to relax and unwind along with nice dining options either downstairs or across the street.
There is a lot more to say but the bottom line is the GFMH offers an experience that is the antithesis of the mega chain hotels that is both refreshing and memorable for a price the national chain hotels can’t touch!
