We have visited Charleston many times, but this was our first time at FQI. It is a notch above everywhere else downtown that we have ever been. The staff is very helpful (especially Michael) and the hotel itself left nothing to be desired. As convenient as it gets to the market/dining/etc. as well. Will definitely be back!

Whenever I travel to Charleston, I start my vacation with a stay at the French Quarter Inn. It is truly a gem in the heart of downtown Charleston. The staff is exceptionally courteous and helpful. The physical surroundings, including the common areas as well as the guest rooms are luxurious and comfortable. The daily perks of breakfast, twilight wine and... More

This was our 3rd visit last week to celebrate our anniversary. Eric greeted us at the front door and took our luggage and parked our car. He knew us by our name for the next four days. We were greeted by Glori at reception with a smile, the best Mimosa, and an upgrade to a corner King room with huge... More

I can see why this hotel has such excellent ratings. When we first arrived I went looking for the ice machine. A gentleman offered to get my ice and a diet coke. He arrived back in the room in about five minutes with the ice and coke. He introduced himself and wished us a good stay. I found out later... More

Great customer service and nothing was too much to ask. Breakfast amazing and taken outdoors in the courtyard a real treat. Rooms clean and housekeeping excellent. Couldn't be in a better position for all of Charleston and would highly recommend. They did reduce our bill due to building noise but that would not stop us staying here again. Value only... More

The entrance area and ground floor were not as impressive as the rating would suggest. The arrival was not helped by the adjacent building works.However all the staff were attentive and we enjoyed all the extras including cheese and wine on arrival, cookies in the evening. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. The restricted outside area was disappointing... More

Anything you needed was provided or efficiently arranged from carriage tours of the city to offsite plantation tours. The level of... More

Really lovely hotel. We booked last minute during a road trip. Front desk was helpful as we booked via phone, and was just as helpful and nice upon our arrival. Very reasonable rate for a great location, free wifi and complimentary valet parking. We arrived around 9:30pm and were excited to be greeted with freshly made cookies that were still... More

The amenities: Coffee 24/7, breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese,etc..; cookies and milk, who could ask for more? The Jr. Suite was so comfortable, and we miss it all already, not to... More

We did a lot of research before booking here and it was everything we hoped for. Start with the exceptional staff - we told friends we think it is the most gracious and friendly hotel welcome we ever received . The special extra touches at FQI include breakfast, wine and cheese, port in the evening, and turn down service. Combine... More
