Thumbs Up...
Loved the hotel! It was in a good location with walking distance to everything... The room and bathroom is small, but that didn't bother us because we weren't there to hang out in the hotel room..

Convenient and clean
Stayed at this hotel for College of Charleston orientation. The hotel is SO CLOSE to the college; it was very convenient. Pros: very clean, mini fridge in room, personal safe in room, A/C worked well, quiet, modernized room although the hotel is old, comfortable beds, friendly staff Cons: very small bathroom, problem at check-in because Hotels.com reserved 2 separate reservations instead of 1 reservation for 2 nights like I had entered on the Hotels.com website (had to go down and check out and check in again the next morning because of this - inconvenient)

Stay for convenience but not comfort
Hotel was lovely and in a prime location downtown but rooms were tiny, especially bathroom. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Inquired about our plans and gave us coupons to aquarium and children’s museum.

Wonderful Stay at the Francis Marion
Loved our stay at the Francis Marion. Only real inconvenience was the size of the bathroom, extremely small. Outside of that, wonderful staff and great location. Nice touch from the staff to send up delicious chocolate covered strawberries, with a sweet hand written note of congratulations, as we were celebrating our anniversary.
