Fodor's Review

A fortresslike building on Marion Square became the first home of the Military College of South Carolina—now called the Citadel—in the 1840s. Today it houses a hotel, and you can stop into the lobby to see a case of interesting artifacts. The present-day Citadel is near Hampton Park on the Ashley River.
