“French Quarter Inn Charleston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Relatively clean, friendly staff, quiet, and a great location...plus the pillow menu is a unique idea. However, I don't see how this can be one of the top ten hotels in the US. There were dirty sheets left on the sleeper sofa, the hair dryer didn't work, and one of the comforters had brown stains. I would stay here again because it was quite and convenient to everything downtown.

We had an exceptional 2 night stay at this beautifully appointed, well located hotel. Spacious rooms with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. They greet their guests with chilled champagne, serve a lovely breakfast until 1030 am, host an afternoon wine and cheese reception, provide milk and warm cookies in the evening, offer beverages, jelly beans and m&m's all day long. Evening turn down service included a helpful note advising of the next day's weather forecast. Favorite feature - bikes are available for exploring this beautiful city. I can't wait to visit and stay here again.

Spent two nights here after taking our son to USC. The high praise from the other reviews is absolutely correct. The hotel is gorgeous, great central location, and the staff is extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our room was a decent size, but we also had a huge private terrace with table and chairs. The bathroom was very large, with plenty of fluffy towels. Everything was very, very clean. We will definitely be staying here whenever we come to Charleston, and will also highly recommend the hotel to anyone who asks. Cannot wait to return in October!

From the morning free breakfast with champagne,to afternoon wine and cheese, to evening cookies and milk,to fresh nighttime chocolates, to a selection of specialty pillows this hotel is different. Though the property is smack in the middle of the historic market district it feels a world apart. The service is impecable and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

The experience would have been better however if the matresses were equal to a Sheraton or W Hotel. An upgrade to better quality would make this place perfect.

With only fifty rooms the hotel never seems crowded even though it was sold out when we were there.

Get a room with a fireplace and jetted tub and it's even better as the romance factor goes up.

The restaurant Tristan adjoins the hotel and it provides excellent gourmet dining.

Cant say enough about both the service and our Beautiful, clean room with wonderfully comfortable beds. We arrived late and staff was so accommodating, answering my emails even helping me order a pizza at 130am. Loved the cool drinks in the lobby and great location in beautiful historic Charleston.
