Employees were great. Property a bit dated.
A
8.0 Very Good
Historic charm. Lovely room with two double beds on 7th floor with great view of Charleston. Very small bath. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location. Easy drop off/pick up luggage, valet parking available. We self parked at nearby garage, $18 per day. Free shuttles run every 15 minutes and can take you to Broad Street/Market areas.
S
8.0 Very Good
The Francis Marion is an elegant old hotel. The furnishing are a little dated but clean and the room was very quiet and comfortable. The bathroom is very small but we left our toiletries on the large table in the bedroom and it worked out fine. Location is excellent and Charleston is beautiful. We walked a block away to La Patissiere for coffee and pastry every morning. I would stay there again.

Best value hotel in Charleston.
C
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was amazing and very helpful. The on-site restaurant has wonderful breakfast!
Cons:Broken closet door in entry hall would swing into the path of the room door. There didn’t appear to be a vent in the bathroom. The 2 person elevator policy does not work when you’re at 100% capacity and it is busy.
B

A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We have a 1-year-old baby that needs space to move and the rooms were perfect for it. The hotel is not new, but they have done and do a great job maintaining the comfort, I love the way everybody treated us. I recommend this hotel 100%
Cons:The only thing I would have like to have was better mattress.
B
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We had an amazing view from the 9th floor. What an exceptional stay in global pandemic
Cons:Not being under mask requirements
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great location, beautiful hotel but more importantly fantastic customer service. Our room was not ready at check-in and we were willing to wait a few minutes. In under 15 minutes they had us checked in and gave us vouchers for free drinks and appetizers at the hotel restaurant. The breakfast buffet was scrumptious (at Swap Fox) and had a great selection. Plus it conveniently had a Starbucks on site. Will definitely be back!
A
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Elevators are 1920s size so there small with luggage but the hotel is gorgeous and embodies the Charleston spirit
