Three nights at the Francis Marion for a conference, and could not have been more pleased. I travel a great deal both for work and for family, and have stayed at hotels from Sleep Inns to Ritz Carltons, and this hotel experience, like cream, rises to the top. I am picky about everything from cleanliness to hot water to bed comfort, and can't find anything to complain about. Hotel staff couldn't have been more attentive and responsive; our slightly delayed check-out was not a problem for them. Check-in was like a dream. Hotel is beautiful, clean, comfortable. It is, however, a historic hotel, so expect small bathrooms and rooms; I was sharing with a friend but we had plenty of room for our clothes, toiletries, and business items. Unless you are traveling with everything but the kitchen sink, it shouldn't be a problem. However, if you are visiting Charleston, don't expect to spend much time in your room, anyway! The location of Francis Marion is ideal for exploring the city on foot or by the (free) trolley, and hotel staff will help point you in the right direction. The Swamp Fox restaurant is anything but a typical hotel restaurant; in a city full of fine dining choices, the Swamp Fox is an excellent choice. Charleston is a treasure of a city, and the Francis Marion is one of the jewels in her crown. This hotel is a great place for a conference, or for a romantic get-away.
