An elegant, historic hotel in the heart of Charleston with a luxurious spa and fabulous onsite dining
When the Francis Marion Hotel first opened in 1924 it was the largest – and perhaps most luxurious – hotel in the Carolinas. Today, the 235-room hotel has undergone many refreshments to add modern conveniences while preserving the historical opulence. Rooms feature stunning harbor views, flat-screen televisions, cherry and dark wood headboards, customized marble topped vanities, and walls and furniture splashed in hues of smoky blue and navy. Unwind in the full-service spa for aromatherapy or hot stone massages as well as facials and exfoliating sea salt body scrubs. The Swamp Fox Restaurant and bar showcases jazz piano music and crafted cocktails, as well as farm-to-table entrees such Low-country catfish served with pecan and blue crab coleslaw or spiced-rubbed pork chops topped with South Carolina’s, Virgil Kaine bourbon barbecue.
