From Frommer's Guide to Charleston:
"In its annual reader survey, Condé Nast Traveler magazine named Charleston the number-three city to visit in America, which places it ahead of such perennial favorites as Boston; Washington, D.C.; and Santa Fe. Visitors are drawn here from all over the world. If the Old South lives on in South Carolina's Low Country, it positively thrives in Charleston. All our romantic notions of antebellum days -- stately homes, courtly manners, gracious hospitality, and, above all, gentle dignity -- are facts of everyday life in this old city."
The Francis Marion Hotel, located in the heart of historic Charleston, 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 in Charleston re-opened in 1996 after a $12 million National Trust award-winning restoration, and is once again Charleston's Grand Hotel.
