The Francis Marion Hotel
Named for Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion (the "Swamp Fox"), the Francis Marion became an instant landmark in Charleston the moment it opened in 1924. Rising 12 stories above the Historic District, the hotel offers spectacular views of Charleston's church steeples, antebellum mansions, and famous harbor, providing easy access to the wealth of Charleston's historic attractions.
An award-winning restoration in 1996 refurbished all of the 234 guestrooms and suites, which now feature plush furnishings and marble baths. Located downtown on Marion Square, the hotel is within walking distance of the magnificent gardens, house museums, antique shops, local boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife that has made Charleston one of the south's premier cities.
With such on-site amenities as Spa Adagio, the Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar, Starbucks, and 18,000 square feet of meeting space, no one will fault you if you end up staying inside the Francis Marion Hotel for the duration of your stay.
Francis Marion was nicknamed the "Swamp Fox" for his cunning ability to disappear into Charleston's swamps and avoid capture by the British.
