Everything about this hotel is amazing! The staff is friendly and rooms are nice. Yes, the bathroom is small, but that is not why I select a hotel! The location is central to tourist areas. The lobby is grand. Truly takes you back in time...More

First of all, the staff was super friendly and prompt. If you don't know anything about the Francis Marion, the rooms are updated but preserve the look and feel that they originally had many years ago. By it's looks, some might not think that the...More

I could be wrong but I don't believe there is one. There are plenty of taxis and Ubers available. It's about $40 for cab from the airport to the hotel
