Very Good 8.0
In the Heart of Charleston
The Francis Marion is a beautiful hotel right in the middle of historic Charleston. Everything you could want to see or so is a short distance away, and the history & character of the building is clear. My only complaint would be about the use of space in our room - (528) - instead of one full sized bathroom, there was two closet sized bathrooms. One with toilet, sink and shower, the other with shower and sink. Otherwise - would recommend.

Wonderful staff!
Due to Hurricane Florence, my mother had cancelled her hotel room at a different hotel and was hoping to stay with me in mine when it was clear no damage had been done to the city. Upon check-in, we explained our situation and were happy to pay extra for the late notice and request and were surprised to have my original Traditional Single Queen upgraded to a Deluxe Two Queen Room with a Harbor View! The staff was consistent with providing excellent service, from recommendations, bookings, and general help. They were very accommodating, kind and made our check in and check out smooth and easy. We were extremely impressed with our three night stay in the hotel and have not stopped recommending it to our friends and family. What was a very hectic and busy weekend was made easier with such lovely service! Our room was beautiful (and that view, wow!). The beds were comfortable, everything was clean, and we were consistently pleased (and very surprised with the free bottle of wine offered at their restaurant with the purchase of two entrees). The hotel is located in a wonderful area that is a short walking distance to the Visitor's Centre, the Market, and shopping on King. We would love to come back to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone travelling.
