The bathroom on the second floor was smaller than the bathroom on the 8th floor

Classy, historic hotel that feels comfortable. Great location for walking to every destination. Rooms are very large with wonderful seating areas that are more like a suite than a hotel room. Pricing is much better than anywhere else in the downtown area and the hotel is not pretentious like so many of the more expensive boutique hotels. Great value and service.

Room was tiny. Had to call for wine to be delivered. Housekeeping never showed. Difficulty getting parking card. Parking deck elevator still down. Walk thru sewer stairs with luggage to get to car. Each return trip gets worse.

We had nine couples separately book for two nights at the Francis Marion Hotel as we all came to Charleston for the Van Gogh Experience. The Travelzoo room rate was $139 and included breakfast, a bottle of wine and truffles. Everyone was very happy with the hotel - size of the rooms, friendly staff, the bar, the lobby, the quality of the food at breakfast, etc. Not one complaint or concern! I wouldn't hesitate to go back there!
Other Comments
Lots of comments on how friendly the staff was - front desk, maid service, servers in the restaurant to the valet guys!
