Gilbert, Minnesota
Reviewed 6 July 2015

We chose this venue as the location for a navy reunion. The rooms, services and staff were truly the best we've encountered and we've held our reunions all over the country! They couldn't have been more welcoming, accommodating or professional. To make the experience even better, the food was outstanding!

We paid $197USD for a night here through Booking.com in July. It was well worth it. Seamless check-in at the décadent foyer which has been restored more tastefully than other sites in Charleston. We were on the 11th floor if 12 with an amazing view of the city. Complimentary water and coffee and a modern machine were Nice. Lovely antiques,...

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel lobby was. The staff was very friendly and we got to check in and get a room early. The room was a little small and old, but the air conditioning worked well which was important as it was over 90 out! We really enjoyed our stay and it was very centrally...

We visited Charleston to take advantage of the opportunity for members of two families including husbands, wives, children, grandchildren and close friends for a family reunion. The Francis Marion Hotel was wonderful. Upon arrival, Lauren checked us into the three rooms reserved for this visit and made arrangements to have our luggage stored until our rooms were ready. Two of...

Friend and I stayed here for our friend's wedding recently. The location was great in walking distance to everything on King and market street, which was convenient since we did not rent a car.

The day my daughter and I arrived for a nice weekend together, it was a very solemn day in Charleston as it was the day of Rev. Pinckney's funeral and President Obama and VP Biden were in town.
