Named after General Francis Marion, the “Swamp Fox” of the American Revolution, the Francis Marion Hotel opened in 1924 and has since set the standard for Charleston hotels. The hotel boasts an enviable location in the centre of Charleston and as such guests have convenient access to all that this charming, historic city has to offer including an array of shops, restaurants, antiques and attractions, such as the South Carolina Aquarium, Charleston Harbour Tours, College of Charleston, the Charleston Visitor Centre and, of course, the region’s stunning golf courses.
