Our take on The Francis Marion Hotel

The Francis Marion Hotel is the kind of Charleston hotel you want to be at when you're on vacation. Dating all the way back to 1924, the Francis Marion was named for General Francis Marion, the “Swamp Fox” of the American Revolution. Today, the historic hotel has seen extensive renovations and enhancements to help it revive some of that 1920s grandeur. Each of its 234 guest rooms are elegantly appointed and feature European-style bedding, down pillows, marble bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and on-demand movies. If you're feeling a little worse for the wear after your journey to the hotel, make an appointment at Spa Adagio for a relaxing massage or facial. Or, if you prefer indulging through fine food and drink, then a meal at the hotel's Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar will send your taste bud into orbit. For an old-world hotel experience with modern amenities, consider the Francis Marion Hotel for your next Charleston vacation.
