My husband and I had always wanted to go to Charleston, SC. So for my birthday this year we stayed at the French Quarter Inn, Charleston. It was an amazing hotel. The interior and furnishings were great, beautiful actually, very reminiscent of hotels in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Our room was excellent and very comfortable. In the service... More

Loved it! Outstanding service and a prime location! One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at and I have traveled all over the US (26 years in the Navy). Everything that downtown Charleston has to offer is within very short walking distance.

We stayed for 3 nights at the French Quarter Inn, and I wish it had been for a week. This is one of the best hotel experiences we've ever had. The Inn's interior is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious, but it is the perks that keep you smiling. And by perks I mean a sumptuous gourmet breakfast (with quiche, smoked... More

Probably 3 1/2 stars for the price we paid. We stayed in a Deluxe Market View Terrace Suite for two nights ($479 per night plus tax). The valet parking was $23 per night on top of it. The room (and Inn overall) was clean and spacious (except for the small shower). Service was wonderful. There were many nice touches as... More

Several times here with 3 couples continues to exceed our expectations. Well trained staff, always helpful and smiling, gorgeous tasting breakfast (love the lox) along with wine/cheese,etc in the afternoon and port wine,etc in evening. Great location downtown within a few blocks of many good restaurants ie SNOB, Husk in particular. I enjoyed hanging out at the hotel, walking to... More

We've had the pleasure of staying at the French Quarter Inn several times in the past and have always had a wonderful experience and this stay did not disappoint! This hotel is centrally located and perfect for touring. We took our daughter and her fiancé to Charleston for their first visit as an engagement gift. They were both so excited... More

I selected this hotel, based on reviews I read on Tripadvisor, so I'm passing on the favor! We had a beach home rental on Isle of Palms, beginning on a Saturday, but wanted to spend a couple nights In Charleston, before heading to the beach. Every contact I had with the French Quarter Inn, from reserving it, to checking out,... More

Again a wonderful stay at the French Quarter Inn. I have tried many hotels in the Charleston downtown and none compare to the service and quality of the FQI. The staff is friendly and the welcoming glass of champagne is my cup of tea. My son is a "5th" year student at C of C so Im there a lot... More

Believe every word of the positive reviews. I just returned from a two week journey down and up the eastern coast. The French Quarter Inn was, by far, the best hotel we stayed at. The room was amazing. We were in room 320 and had an enormous balcony with a view of the city. The staff is equally amazing. I... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The AAA Four Diamond Inn's newly redesigned rooms are inspired by the old world elegance of a Parisian chateau set against the architectural backdrop of Charleston's classic French Quarter. Red medallion-patterned draperies and damask chenille upholstery in hues of black, white and gold create a rich distinction between the fabrics and furniture, of the highest quality.Among many other amenities, guests of the hotel enjoy complimentary items such as: champagne and lady fingers at check-in, an evening wine and cheese reception, freshly baked cookies and milk, evening turn down service and gourmet continental breakfast in the lobby or served to your room. The over-sized guest rooms, some with working fireplaces, private balconies, and whirlpool tubs, provide imagery of an era gone by, but still grants contemporary amenities a sophisticated traveler has come to expect. ... more   less
