  • Curtailed trip

    by Lynne H on 2018-09-17 09:29 am

    Lovely hotel, helpful and friendly staff. Good concierge. Close to bus stop and shopping area and lots of restaurants, Within walking distance of the river. Lovely food in the Swamp Fox and good servers (unfortunately the greeter we had for breakfast and dinner was uncommunicative and almost surly). Our stay was curtailed due to Hurricane Florence and a mandatory evacuation was ordered so there's little more I can write.

  • Our visit to Charleston, SC and the Historic Francis Marion Hotel

    by MissPerfectDC on 2018-09-16 12:34 am

    Our hotel room was large with 2 Full size beds (we would have preferred even a Queen Size bed), a desk, small bar refrigerator, and table. Didn't have any drawers to place your clothes though and I missed that. There was a safe in a too small of a closet. However, the hotel was full to the "brim" and we were satisfied to have the large bedroom, and the room was very clean every day.

    The service the entire 3 days was great. Our only complaint and why I can't give it a 4 or 5 is the very small and old bathroom. The hotel was refurbished in 2009, but because of the small size of the bathroom, it still can't compare with all the modern conveniences of a newer bathroom.that has a vanity, several towel bars, and mirror that wasn't up too high, and the towel rack was coming off of the wall, as well as the tub wouldn't empty well. So though we tried to keep in mind the elegance of the hotel as antique and historic, we would have appreciation more amenities for convenience.

    This historic hotel has beautiful convention rooms , elegant drapes, as well as the service staff that you need for a large group who was always accommodating.

    The food was terrific at every meal. We had a cocktail party, a Ladies Luncheon, Breakfast every day, a Buffet and a dinner banquet. Every meal had a variety of Southern creamed gravies that were delicious and enough for helpings if you wanted. The banquet evening they served a huge portion of Barbecue Pork with another delicious gravy and all the fixings that was scrumptious. So all in all, take away the bathroom and loss of room amenities, it was a beautiful historic hotel. The best thing is that it is located in the historic part of town and that too, was great with all the local places to visit. Very historic Charleston is a must to see, and the 2nd time we have visited there.

  • Grand historic hotel

    Great old, historic hotel. Convenient location. Plenty of things to see within walking distance and easy walk to free circulator busses at the Charleston visitor's center. "Harbor view" rooms do offer nice views. Be sure to see old, stately homes on the College of Charleston grounds which are right next door.

  • Old World Feel

    by Sherri B on 2018-09-12 05:09 pm

    My husband and I stayed here for a conference I was attending. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was dated if you are interested in this type of ambiance. There was no pool onsite. The hotel is in an excellent location and it is easy to walk anywhere in the historic district. Was disappointed Starbucks was still closed. Room would have had more space if they would put one queen bed instead of 2 doubles (which is really not what couples want). Overall quaint hotel.

  • Beautiful Hotel Old World Charm

    by Julie R on 2018-09-10 03:10 am

    Great hotel with the old world charm. It was clean & very pleasant staff. However the bathroom was very small not enough room to put your toiletries. The door to the room was getting stuck & wouldn't open. The Swamp Fox restaurant was superb. The server was very professional & pleasant. The food was excellent especially the shrimp & grits.
    Highly recommend.

    Owner Response
    Thanks for the shiny stars, Julie! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at our historic hotel. It's always nice knowing our restaurant hit the spot as well -- you can't go wrong with our classic shrimp and grits! Next time you find yourself back in Charleston, we hope to welcome you back.

    Sincerely,
    Stephen Parker, Hotel Manager
