Overview

Towering over King Street for nearly a century, the Francis Marion Hotel is the tallest hotel in Charleston and considered one of the charming city’s grand dames. Much like its historic surroundings, the downtown property reflects the ambiance of the 1920s while providing contemporary amenities required by modern guests.

Cornflower blue rooms and suites are decorated in historic Charleston style with two-poster beds, ornate gold mirrors, custom tapestries and granite-topped wood furnishings. All lodgings include free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers and flat-screen televisions, while deluxe rooms feature seating areas and suites have separate living rooms with sofabeds. Lower floors may be subject to street noise, so for quieter stays -- and the best views -- request a higher floor looking out at King Street or the harbor.

The Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar delights guests with Southern delicacies for breakfast, lunch and dinner while its adjoining bar offers cocktails and live jazz piano music. Guests have access to a 24-hour fitness center and, for additional costs, can book treatments at the full-service Adagio Day Spa. There are two grand ballrooms within the property, making it a popular venue for weddings.

The hotel is across the street from Marion Square, home to the Charleston Farmers Market and within a 15-minute walk of the College of Charleston, Gibbes Museum of Art and Charleston City Market.

The hotel is elegant but needs updating. Room it was comfortable but about the size of a typical hotel room in England.
