Conference Hotel Information

The Francis Marion Hotel, located in the heart of historic Charleston, South Carolina, was the largest and grandest in the Carolinas when it opened in 1924. Named for General Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox" of the American Revolution, the Francis Marion Hotel re-opened in 1996 after a $12 million National Trust award-winning restoration, and is once again Charleston's Grand Hotel.

Guests at the Francis Marion Hotel can enjoy classic Southern cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar, cocktails and jazz piano music in the Swamp Fox bar, complete spa services at Spa Adagio, and gourmet coffee from Port City Java.

The Francis Marion Hotel also provides all the traditional services one expects from a grand hotel: a doorman and bell service, concierge, valet parking, room service, business center, newsstand and gift shop and a well equipped fitness center.
