Francis Marion Hotel

View Website


The Francis Marion Hotel sits in the heart of downtown Charleston, on legendary King Street across from Marion Square Park, surrounded by shops, restaurants, attractions, nightlife, antiques and art galleries.

Named for General Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox" of the American Revolution, the Francis Marion Hotel was the largest and grandest in the Carolinas when it opened in 1924. The hotel has a long tradition of gracious service, elegant accommodations and splendid banquet and meeting facilities. The Francis Marion Hotel combines 1920’s style and grace with 21st century comfort and convenience.

Guests at the Francis Marion Hotel can dine on classic Southern cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar or relax with cocktails and live piano music in the Swamp Fox Bar. The hotel also offers day spa services at the on-site Spa Adagio

The Francis Marion Charleston Hotel also provides all the traditional services one expects from a grand hotel: a doorman and bell service, concierge, valet parking, room service, wireless internet services, gift shop and a well-equipped fitness center.

Whether you’re visiting Charleston for pleasure or business, the Francis Marion is conveniently located just two blocks from the Charleston Visitor Center with tours and transportation. It’s within walking distance to the College of Charleston, South Carolina Aquarium and Charleston Harbor tours.

Visitors coming to the Holy City for festivals and events are located right across the street from Marion Square, a 6-acre park bustling with activity throughout the year, including the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Charleston Wine + Food Festival, and Charleston Fashion Week. Upper King Street is also known for its shopping, a perfect location for home décor and accessories. Head the opposite direction on King Street for excellent shopping on mid- and lower King Street, including Charleston Croghan’s Jewel Box and M. Dumas & Sons and dozens more.
