  • Caroline Bean is worth her weight in gold and if I could I would put her in my pocket and have her plan my entire life for me. If I could do everything all over again I would do it at the Francis Marion again. I have no regrets... The Gold Ballroom was stunning, the food was to die for, the service was impeccable and the organization made it all run smooth.

  • Our wedding reception at the Francis Marion was absolutely wonderful! I would recommend this location to anyone. Our guests loved staying at the historic hotel so convenient to all of the wedding festivities. I don't have enough nice things to say about Caroline and the rest of the staff at the Francis Marion. Everyone was extremely professional, friendly, organized, and thorough.

  • We enjoyed a magnificent wedding held at The Francis Marion Hotel on June 8th, 2013. From our first meeting with the hotel's wedding planner and representative, Caroline Bean, we knew we were right at home having our wedding there. Caroline exudes confidence and calmness, which is highly important in planning and organizing an event. She provided us with all of the information we needed, including the hotel's preferred vendors list, which we utilized; accommodated all of our requests with ease; and answered all of our questions promptly, succinctly, and provided suggestions if the hotel was not able to accommodate a certain request. Our wedding was so much fun and all of our needs were met for the wedding itself, and during our guests' stay at the hotel, some for several days. We will forever have fond memories of our wedding and of our time at The Francis Marion Hotel!

  • Francis Marion was by far one of the best decisions we made! Caroline is incredible at what she does truly cares about every aspect of your big day. I planned my entire wedding through email cross country, leaving much of my trust with her and every detail was as I imagined-she is truly an angel. The food is to die for!!!

  • Working with the people (Caroline and Gillian mainly) at the Francis Marion Hotel was a fabulous experience. Every question/detail was answered and addressed before the big day! They helped make our special day absolutely perfect and go off without any issues! They allowed us to make last minute changes and were very flexible to our requests. Really sweet sweet people who are happy to meet your every need. I have absolutely no regrets about using this venue for our reception!

  • The Francis Marion Hotel was the perfect, centrally located venue for our wedding and primary stay location for our guests. The customer service was superb and the Catering Manager did a wonderful job of coordinating the reception with our wedding planner. Our wedding day was perfect and The Francis Marion team played a huge role in making that happen. Thank you!

  • Having my wedding at the Francis Marion was a complete joy!! There were a couple hiccups along the way, but the staff immediately stepped up and resolved the issues! It reminded me a lot of Sandals resort- 'leave the details behind!' I planned everything, then just left it to them to carry out and it was spectacular!! The entire staff was fantastic and I would get married there again in a heartbeat!! Thank you for everything :)

  • I had a NYE wedding reception in the Colonial Ballroom. We had 65-70 rooms booked at the hotel and they gave us a good rate (for NYE). The suites (Mark Clark and Harbor View) were pricey- but much needed for our other wedding weekend plans (welcome cocktails, mimosas and muffins, etc). See if they will give you a booking code for your room block- calling the hotel for reservations was very dated as the "reservation specialist" don't work at night or on the weekends (when most of my guests tried to call)- it all turned out ok but that was a little frustrating! At the reception, I had several carving/action stations and I provided my alcohol (Burris Liquors). I think based on the number of people and hours (5.5 hours) and the fact it was NYE so everyone was in party mode- this turned out to be better value. We did a cocktail hour in the lobby, which was still decorated for Christmas and a lot of the guests commented on enjoying this detail to break the night up. The food was sort of ex... Read more

  • The venue is very traditional and located in beautiful downtown charleston. Everyone complimented us on the food. The overall event was relatively expensive since everything is a la carte. The best deal is if you supply your own bar, and unlike many other local venues tables chairs and place settings are included in the price which was nice to not have to rent everything.
