Hand-Picked Hotel

Refurbished historic hotel of America in central Charleston with spa and restaurant.

This handsome 12-storey hotel sits proudly overlooking Marion Square in central Charleston. It’s one of the historic hotels of America where award-winning restorations have brought it bang up to date without compromising on elegance and traditional style.

The Francis Marion Hotel is something of an institution in Charleston. It’s been revered as one of South Carolina’s grandest and largest hotels since the early 1920s. Still to this day the ambience and service links back to yesteryear. Guest rooms and suites epitomise the era with marble and granite ensuite bathrooms pushing the pleasure buttons, still further.

Venture into the hotel’s Swamp Fox Restaurant and you’ll be treated to a hearty choice of classic southern cuisine in stately surroundings. Alternatively, enjoy an afternoon of pampering in the Spa of Charleston and you’ll be all set for a relaxed evening on the town.

From Starbucks and strolls around the historic harbour to an on-site fitness centre and swimming pools, nearby, the Francis Marion Hotel unveils Charleston, in style.

Local Area

The port city of Charleston is situated in the central east coast of South Carolina overlooking the Atlantic. It’s a traditional seafaring city with the click clack and crunch of horse drawn carts to be heard echoing around the cobblestoned streets and squares.

Staying in the downtown district, close to the green space and historic monuments of Marion Square, puts you in walking distance of most of the main attractions. Numerous heritage house museums, antique shops and the city university are nearby, alongside numerous boutique designer stores and well maintained private and public gardens.

Explore elsewhere in Charleston and you’ll find the fabulous French Quarter on the city’s southeast dockside. This walled district is where the rest of the city grew from and much of the history is detailed within the museums and galleries dotted along the waterfront.
