It's been a little over a year since we stayed here but the wonderful feel of days gone by is still evident. There is an elegance that had not been diminished by time or changes. The staff has seen little change and their willingness to go the extra step for you is wonderful. We also dined and breakfasted in the...

We had tickets for a concert at the historic Lincoln Theater, located just a few doors down from the hotel, so the location was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was charming. Sunday's continental breakfast was rather limited due to the fact that the adjoining restaurant serves brunch that day, but it was not a...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The property is beautiful and loved learning the history of the property. A charging station added to the desk would be helpful and the bed was a little hard, however we had a great experience there.

My husband and I were exploring historic towns and selected Marion due to it's close proximity to Knoxville, TN and the unique story about the revitalization of downtown. The General Francis Marion Hotel is a beautiful historic hotel conveniently located in downtown Marion, VA. The city is charming and people were friendly. The owner of the hotel owns two restaurants...

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for your less than satisfactory stay. Although confused by some of your concerns, I would like to clarify a few issues. We are indeed located on Main St. in wonderful downtown Marion, and are within a five minute walk to nine restaurants surrounding the hotel. We also have 18 parking spaces...

The General Francis Marion Hotel is an historic hotel built in 1927. It was completely renovated in 2005 with state of the art HVAC at the time. We offer 8 different room sizes that range in price from $75 to $189 per night. Perhaps if you would have notified our guest services department we could have changed or upgraded your...

The rooms are decent and the girls behind the desk were super nice. I actually felt sorry for the employees because they had to explain why I couldn't use the luggage cart until I carried all my bags from the street up a flight of stairs. Also, they had to apologize for the fact that there was no parking within...

I'm sorry you had such a disappointing experience. The hotel has a lift that can take your luggage to our lobby area directly from the street. We are a historic hotel with many stairs which is why a lift was installed. We also have parking directly behind the hotel and a two story parking garage less than 100 feet from...

The General Francis Marion is a lovely boutique hotel. My wife and I spent a weekend at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were both pleasant and responsive.

This is an excellent hotel with beautiful rooms and courteous service. There is a restaurant for added convenience and a few local restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Am pleased to recommend to my friends and family. Will definitely stay here again. Would be a great setting for a wedding and/or reception.

I love this quaint boutique hotel. I have stayed here multiple times over the last 4 years for business. This is a true gem of Marion.
