  • Great friendly and helpful staff

    by r0ckinn on 2019-03-19 05:58 am

    We had a corner room on the eleventh floor with a wonderful view!!! The staff was helpful and very pleasant. Everything was clean and in order. And yes the bathroom was very small (European size), but it had everything that one would need. The hotel (at least on the eleventh floor) was quiet and peaceful. The air conditioning at night does blow right on the bed and it would be nice to be able to redirect the air flow.

  • A good experience

    The bathroom is SO SMALL & to me a bit claustrophobic. However when you read that this was the 1st hotel in Charleston that provided guests with bathrooms in each room you understand the cool significance of it & feel like you are experiencing a bit of history. The hotel is beautiful, the room service is fairly priced & breakfast specifically was delicious!! Starbucks on-site is a huge bonus & the 24/7 Walgreens across the way is a life saver for those last minute items. The valet takes 15-20 minutes to get your car which is a bit ridiculous but they are polite and very courteous. Bill at the front desk was awesome gave us great advice and was so hospitable on arrival!
    Enjoy the history of Charleston at this hotel!!!

  • 1920s charm

    by GoPlacesdp1251970 on 2019-03-17 06:30 pm

    I stayed here for a 3day conference. It is a very busy hotel that is popular for weddings and conferences. Despite all the different activities going on the staff was very nice and attentive. From the moment I walked through the door I was greeted and made to feel welcome. All my questions and concerns were addressed. The rooms are a nice size. I shared a room with 2 double beds. The carpet was a little stuffy when I first entered but the stuffiness went away after airing out the room. The highlight of my room was that we had 2 full bathrooms in our room and the shower pressure was wonderful. The hotel is very old which adds to its charm and it feels like one is in the 1920s which is when I believe the hotel was built. It is well kept and clean.Despite its charm it could use some additional renovations which is the reason for 4 stars. The location is perfect. It is in the heart of downtown. Some of the best restaurants and shopping are within walking distance.

  • Pleasantly Surprised!!!

    I was a little apprehensive about the Francis Marion having read some of the negative reviews, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
    We dropped the car off with the valet guys, who throughout our stay were extremely friendly and courteous.
    Entering the lobby you can't help but be impressed, it is so elegant and beautiful.
    Checking in was also a great experience. The young lady who checked us in was very professional and very informative.
    Our room was a deluxe king on the third floor, it was a very good size, featuring a king size bed and a sofa. The bathroom was also a decent size, totally the opposite of what a lot of people say. The room was tastefully decorated and in keeping with the period features of the hotel. The only negative was the view from the room, which was of a rooftop, and it faced the ballroom I think.
    The housekeeping staff were very good, ensuring the room was clean and well maintained.
    The hotel is also very well located right on Marion Square, turn right along King Street and you are in the main shopping area in downtown, turn left and there are a plethora of restaurants on the doorstep.
    I would not hesitate in staying at the Francis Marion again, and would recommend it to anyone!
