My wife and I stopped here for a few days to unwind after dropping our daughter off at college. From the moment we arrived, everyone went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. We really enjoyed the continental breakfast, the wine/cheese every early evening, and the cookies at night. Tea, lemonade, water, and coffee were... More

My husband surprised me this past week with a get-away to Charleston and a stay at the French Quarter Inn. We enjoyed every minute of our visit but the highlight by far was the hotel. Upon arriving early, we were offered champagne (which was available all day long) and a very relaxing wait in their very European sitting area (which... More

From the start of our stay to the very end, it was the best hotel we could remember staying at. Beautiful interior design, artwork and features. Location was hard to beat, being close to the old market, most shopping areas, restaurants, as well as a fairly close walk to the Battery and most other Charleston attractions. We had plenty of...

We had a wonderful experience at FQI. The service couldn't have been better. Accommodations were very nice and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the marvelous breakfast every morning and the wine and cheese reception every evening before going out for dinner. Services provided by Marvin, Michelle, Travon and Will were excellent and made us feel so at home. What great Southern... More

This was the perfect place to stay in Charleston! It actually ended up raining most of our vacation so we were thrilled to have found such a cozy and beautiful hotel -- because we spent a LOT of time there! The staff is all terrific -- and Jenny hooked us up with reservations at a few restaurants that we couldn't... More

We just completed our 5 night stay at the French Quarter Inn and would like to express our gratitude to the staff and ownership for the most pleasant hotel experience we have ever had. The professionalism, cleanliness, and attention to detail made our time there so memorable. We took advantage of the in-room breakfast delivery a couple of times and... More

Having never been to the South I am so happy my first experience was at The French Quarter Inn. I have never had such wonderful and warm service by a hotel. It finally gave me the true understanding of Southern hospitality. If only all the people could be as nice as the people were in Charleston. Michelle, at the front... More

There is a reason why this hotel is #1 on tripadvisor for Charleston hotels. It is sensational. If you're hungry here...it's your own fault. They feed you from 6:30AM until 10PM. Breakfast buffet, wine and cheese at 5:30PM and fresh cookies and port at 8:30. There is always coffee and a selection of iced drinks as well. Jelly Belly and... More

Location- perfect. Cleanliness- excellent This hotel is beautiful. The staff was very nice, helpful and hospitable. The amenities are excellent. I sincerely cannot come up with one thing I was not satisfied with. The reception desk staff with whom I interacted were Brandi and Meredith. They epitomize Southern Hospitality and sweetness. Thanks for a very nice stay!

Our stay at the French Quarter Inn far surpassed our expectations and spoiled us for any future hotel stays. Everyone from the valet/bellmen to the front desk clerks to the servers and housekeeping staff was pleasant and extremely accommodating. It is located in a quiet part of downtown Charleston and yet within easy walking distance to local attractions, dining and... 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
