We enjoyed the hotel and room but the bathroom was like a small closet with very little room to move.

We loved our stay at the Francis Marion! It was charming, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel's location was a real plus- it was convenient to downtown attractions.

Nice stay but 2 tiny bathrooms in our guestroom.
Great location for shopping, restaurants & historic sightseeing. Entire hotel staff was very professional & accommodating. Guestrooms are in need of some updating, especially bathrooms. Lobby & other public areas were very upscale & attractive.

Needs renovation
It is an excellent location. But the bathroom was very old and needs to be redone. Also very small.
