We took a two night escape on the Locals package and enjoyed our stay tremendously. Everybody was very attentive to us and appreciative of our business. The Swamp Fox restaurant had delicious food and the pub in there concocted tasty signature cocktails. We suggest that you stop/dine/stay there on your visit to Charleston.

Date of stay: January 2021
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Amazing hotel but terrible lobby restaurant. Restaurant is over priced, staff is terrible, food isn’t good. Hotel is clean and hotel staff is very friendly. I would definitely stay here again minus going to the restaurant.

Just terrific...we were Married and stayed in a suite for a week in December 2020. Gillian handled every aspect of our wedding, champagne toast, and dinner served in our suite. Everything was the best...more than we ever expected. We loved our stay at the Francis Marian.

From top to bottom, this hotel ranks as one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The 'at your service' bellhops were an exceptional nicety, as was the swift room service from the Swamp Fox Cafe. For those wanting a comprehensive Charlestonian experience, stay at the Francis Marion. You won't be disappointed.
