We stayed at the Francis Marion Hotel Christmas 2015. When we checked in and got to our room we noticed it was kind of small and on the 2nd floor. We thought it wouldn't hurt to ask for an upgrade so we did. The nice...More

A lovely historic lobby greets you. Our room was nicely done, with a great view of the park, the iconic bridge, and water. It was a standard room, so small, but adequate. (saved 30% by bidding) Warning the bathroom was smaller than a ship's cabin,...More

We certainly are right in the heart of this beautiful city, and I'm thrilled that our location was perfect for your stay in town. Of course, it wouldn't be a visit to Charleston without that southern hospitality, and it means a lot to know that...More

Here for an educational meeting. Great location in historic Charleston. Easy walking to dining, shopping, tours. Nice neighborhood. Would stay here again on my own choosing! Nestled amongst the College of Charleston campus, but not that many students in the King Street area.

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
