The Historic Francis Marion Hotel has taken proactive steps to ensure the safety and health of our guests and staff members. These measures include increased cleaning of high touch areas throughout the hotel, constant sanitation of public areas, limits on the number of guests in particular areas, and the health screening of our staff. Each department has dedicated a significant amount of time and care into policies and procedures to align with guidelines from local authorities, DHEC and the SCLRA. We are confident in our plan and are excited to welcome you.

Named for Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion (the “Swamp Fox”), the Francis Marion Hotel became an instant Charleston landmark when it opened in 1924. Rising 12 stories above the Historic District, the hotel offers spectacular views of Charleston’s church steeples, historic mansions, and famous harbor, providing easy access to the wealth of Charleston’s attractions.

An award-winning restoration in 1996 refurbished all of the 234 guestrooms and suites, which now feature plush furnishings and marble baths. Located downtown on Marion Square, the hotel is within walking distance of the magnificent gardens, house museums, antique shops, local boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife that has made Charleston one of the south’s premier cities.

With such on-site amenities as Spa Adagio, the Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar, Starbucks, and 18,000 square feet of meeting space, no one will fault you if you end up staying inside the Francis Marion Hotel for the duration of your stay.
