Making Memories Since 1924

Since it originally opened its doors almost 100 years ago, the Francis Marion Hotel has been the epicenter of weddings and social events in Charleston society. The tradition of elegance and grandeur live on in two of the most elegant ballrooms in Charleston. With unique features like antique chandeliers, 20-foot high ceilings, monumental windows, and marble accented fireplaces, the Francis Marion Hotel provides the ideal location for a romantic Charleston wedding.

In addition to our stunning ballrooms, the Francis Marion Hotel has modern conveniences located right on premises. For rejuvenation and relaxation, pamper yourself at The Spa of Charleston. For a taste of the south, dine in at The Swamp Fox Restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our restaurant also has private dining options for your rehearsal dinner or bridal luncheon. For your guests, the six levels of garage parking located adjacent to the hotel make the Francis Marion easily accessible in the heart of the historic district.
