My wife and daughter stayed here for three days last week and it exceeded our expectations on every level. The professionalism and graciousness of the entire staff from valet to front desk to housekeeping made every contact a pleasurable experience. The room, the daily breakfast, the wine and cheese happy hour and the evening cookies were all delightful. The complimentary... More

I went with my family of 4 and stayed at the French Quarter Inn during Labor Day weekend This hotel has so many great features that make the high price justifiable. The champagne welcome, the wine and cheese reception (which includes charcuterie, bread , and fruit), the evening cookies and milk with port wine, the turn down service, and the... More

Went to Charleston for a girls week to celebrate 30 years of friendship. We stayed our first 2 nights at the French Quarter Inn. We were greeted warmly and check-in was a breeze. We were given Mimosa upon check-in. Our room was beautifully decorated, comfortable and spacious. The hotel offered cheese, fruit and wine from 5-6 PM and cookies and... More

My husband and I wanted to getaway for a couple days to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We chose the French Quarter Inn, in part because of the positive reviews and they are all true. When we arrived in Charleston we had a bit of a problem finding the entrance to the Inn. A front desk person stayed on the phone... More

This hotel is as close to perfect as it gets - it's worth every penny. There are so many good things I don't even know where to begin. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful (Will in the valet is awesome!). Location to everything couldn't have been better. The in-room breakfast and evening reception (wine and cheese) was fabulous. I... More

Truly flawless experience for those who love boutique hotel experiences. French style meets Southern hospitality right next to Market Street in Charleston. Our kids found the nightly milk and cookies quite yummy. Wife and I watched the amazing thunderstorms from the balcony while sipping (complimentary) champagne. Worth every penny.

This is by far one of the best hotel stays we have ever had. Our first trip to Charleston was made memorable by the warm greeting we received when we arrived, by the front desk clerk, Glori. She and the day shift clerk, Marvin were very helpful in getting us information about the city and pointing out places to see... More

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.

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
