We totally enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were so tired after a long day of driving and the hotel, location and all the wonderful employees provided us with a sanctuary. The location across the street from a legendary park and the delicious breakfast was remarkable. Special thank you to all the team at the restaurant who provided us with top notch service and delightful conversations.

I really do like staying here and have stayed here multiple times and love the extras you get with Travelzoo. The only issue i had this time was there was stuff in the fridge that wasn't suppose to be there. I told them after we left and sent a picture. They apologized. It was just water that wasn't there's. It was just a little creepy cause then you think what else didn't get done with the room. We will defiantly be going back to Charleston and do like everything else about this hotel

Beautiful hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The Travelzoo package was fantastic. We did not use any of the spa treatments though ( not enough time)

Another terrific stay at the Francis Marion. The toilet continues to be way too small, but that's the only drawback.

We loved our stay. The hotel is old school elegant and has beautiful common areas to sit and relax. Sometimes there is live piano music and fresh hot cookies! The room we were in was unusual with two small full bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. . Food and drinks at the swamp fox Lou ge were reasonably priced and very good. Piano player was there too and the bartender worked harder than any bartender around.

Parking in the next door city lot is $18 a day but the day ends at midnight so you end up paying almost double that for one night. Great hotel location near the pier, the battery and market.
