"Location, location, location is the main draw of this historic hotel" -- Travel + Leisure

Why We Love It

  • Once the largest hotel in the Carolinas and still the tallest hotel in Charleston's Historic District
  • Top floor rooms facing King Street offer great views
  • Flavorful low-country cuisine served at the Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar
  • Within a 15-minute walk of museums, markets and historic landmarks


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.

Great reception staff. I had a small issue and it was handled very promptly. The breakfast buffet in the Swamp Fox restaurant was also very good.

ease of location -- near trolly -- Drew (at the valet desk) went way above the call of duty helping us learn an answer to a question about something we had seen.

our arrival was at noon -- the hotel told us that we could check in early and that it wouldn't be very long before we would have a room -- since we got up at 3 a.m. that was important to us. it was almost 4 when we got a room and it wasn't even the room or the floor they had told us we would have when we first got there. I felt they could have been more forthcoming with real information when we checked in

The location was excellent. We could walk to most places and there was a free local bus that stops in front of the hotel. Beautiful lobby and nice restaurant and bar in the hotel.

The room was very nice. There is room service and a nice restaurant in the hotel. The one negative was that the bathroom was VERY small and did not have an exhaust fan. Not good for close quarters.
