Nice hotel in a nice neighborhood
Though I would have preferred to be near the Battery and the Market, we were in a good location, adjacent to shopping and restaurants on King St. The lobby is nice, and the hotel puts out coffee and tea in the morning, and citrus water in the afternoon. Our room was spacious, and our king bed was very comfortable. The room was a bit odd, with two tiny bathrooms. The furniture was mediocre; the dresser is just ugly. I forgot to bring a hairdryer, and, like many hotels, the hairdryer here was horrible. I don't know why hotels skimp on such inexpensive items. The cleaning staff forgot to clean our room one day, but it was done quickly when we asked. Overall, this was a nice hotel, and I would stay here again. Even with a Hotels.com discount, it was very expensive given the time of year and the quality of the hotel.

Second time staying and already ready to go back!
This was our second time staying at this hotel and it has been a fabulous experience both times. Excellent location, staff is very friendly and helpful, beautiful very clean hotel. The only thing that I wish were different is the bathroom size, they are tiny!! But that definitely wouldn't keep me from booking this hotel again.

a nice place
The bathroom is real small, and although I loved the view of the park, the room was noisy from the street. The sunrise was so beautiful as well was the park out our view window. The staff was more than hospitable. And the lobby is so beautiful. There is a Starbucks on the property, and that was nice. Parking is easy and right next door, we didn't use the valet. Parking was 14.00 a night for covered parking.

Charming Hotel
Whenever we visit Charleston, we stay at the Francis Marion - I love the vintage charm of this hotel. The lobby is warm, welcoming and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's location on King St makes walking the city quick and easy. The availability of a parking garage next door is also a huge bonus!
