Wanting to be conscious of the environment on your wedding day? The Francis Marion Hotel is a proud member of the South Carolina Green Hospitality Alliance and a member of Green Hotels Association. We offer guests a completely smoke-free facility for a more clean, comfortable and healthy environment. We also take additional environmental care throughout the hotel, shutting off power on floors not in use and keeping thermostats at optimal temperatures over summer and winter months to help curtail energy consumption.

We are pleased to say we are the first hotel in Charleston to take part in composting and reducing what we send to the landfill by over 80%. With composting bins in the kitchen, wait stations and our employee cafeteria. The organic waste collected is returned to local farmers, which grow the food we purchase, then we compost again, making the process go full circle. The Francis Marion Hotel is locally owned and operated and we are a certified SC participate of Fresh on the Menu.
