Just a charming hotel with modern amenities and excellent service. It is clear why this inn is at the top of the reviews. Beautiful bathrooms with large showers, updated rooms and tasteful decor. Complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and light breakfast in the morning. Just perfect.

This has to be one of the best hotels around Charleston. Here is why: 1) Valet service when you arrive and your luggage is taken directly to your room 2) The glass of welcoming champagne as you are checking in. 3) The wine and chess party every night and a wonderful full size breakfast on the terrace. 4) The cookie...

This is our 2nd stay at the French Quarter Inn in historic Charleston, SC. This is absolutely the best hotel we have ever stayed at, including Hiltons. The staff and service are fantastic, from the wonderful breakfast to the afternoon wine & cheese to the chocolates and turn-down at night. And cookies (all kinds) served in the evening too. A...

After skipping a year, we returned to the French Quarter Inn for our board of directors meeting. Again, nothing but very positive comments from our board members. The group has become fond of the generous breakfast display, afternoon wine and cheese reception and evening port offering with fresh cookies. Even with renovations going on, the inn operated smoothly and there... More
