The Francis Marion was the perfect place to stay - right across from the lovely Marion Park. The room was very comfortable and the staff helpful and engaging. The amazing Museum of Charleston was just a short distance away, as was shopping and good restaurants.

I could be wrong but I don't believe there is one. There are plenty of taxis and Ubers available. It's about $40 for cab from the airport to the hotel
