After celebrating its diamond anniversary, the Francis Marion continued to benefit from Charleston’s robust tourist industry. Ownership received the Three Sisters Award recognizing efforts to revitalize Marion Square. The restoration of the original “Citadel Green,” delights historians and visitors to this day. The addition of the Carolina Conference Facility (or Carolina Ballroom) enhanced the Francis Marion’s meeting space offerings. Refurbishment and enlargement of guest rooms with décor reminiscent of 1920s grandeur, adds to modern day comfort and elegance. Sophisticated penthouse suites including the Mark Clark Presidential, offer unsurpassed views of Charleston’s harbor.
