September 2022 Stay at The Francis Marion
I enjoyed my stay. It was the host hotel for the conference. Restaurant was top notch, Starbucks is on site. Staff was courteous and professional. Rooms were comfortable and the daily cleanings and towel refreshment were performed. I would recommend the place to anyone.

Great weekend stay
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Location was great! The only complaint was the room temp. It was hard to maintain a comfortable temperature without the room feeling damp. I consider that the price for staying at an older hotel.
