Wow! What a great experience at The French Quarter Inn during my first visit to Charleston! My mom and I decided to come to Charleston for a mother & daughter trip, and we absolutely fell in love with the charm of this unique city. The French Quarter Inn was the perfect place to stay. Location, hospitality, service- all top notch!... More

It was our second time around the FQI and it was as great as it was the first time. The location is also ideal for all the restaurants, galleries and center market. I highly recommend staying here while in Charleston. Room are on the smaller side, but very classy.

I reviewed this hotel in April 2013 and we were back for a visit again in May 2015. We find this one of our favourite hotels, the service is excellent, the included breakfast is very nice, so is the surrounding. We were able to eat on the terrace every day as it was not too cold. The room again was... More

Everything about this hotel is wonderful in terms of comfort, friendliness of staff, and concierge help. Located near the Market, there is a wealth of restaurants within walking distance as well as art galleries. We have been here for two special occasions, and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Charleston. There is no hotel restaurant, but Ruth's Chris is... More

The French Quarter Inn located right on the market in downtown Charleston is the heart of our returning to Charleston again and again. The staff, the amenities, the location and the fabulous beds and linens are certainly some of the best to be found. Starting with champagne and almond macaroons at check in, you know that you will be treated... More

Anice, informed us about the tours, water taxi ($10 for the day/$6 one way), Dining, and shopping. Linda, a wait staff served with perfection. She was... More

The hotel is in a great central location. Amenities are limited in that the hotel has neither a pool nor, more importantly, any restaurant. So, while the 24 hour coffee, tea and cookies help to soothe needs it is unfortunate that there is no on-site facility for even rudimentary room service staples such as sandwiches etc. Breakfast was good, though...

My friend and I do at least 2 girl's trips a year, but this by far was the best. We stayed in a Queen suite. The room was spacious, exceptionally clean and just beautiful. So much Southern charm. The staff was professional and so gracious. Anisa and Marika were 2 of the many helpful people we dealt with on our... More

What a great hotel!! The staff was super friendly and hospitable, the rooms were spotless and the beds really comfortable. The hotel goes over the top with the breakfast in bed, wine and cheese reception and other treats throughout the day. We were in Charleston on vacation and the location was perfect. We walked everywhere from the hotel, and also... More

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!
