“Fantastic Hotel for Business Meeting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We have hosted our Fall Planning meeting at the FQI for the past 2 years and it couldn't have been a better experience. I received nothing but positive comments from the attendees. Over the years, we have held our meetings in other nice hotels, but the staff, amenities, and location of the French Quarter Inn are second to none! Group Services Manager Scott Martindale did an outstanding job and took care of everything we needed to conduct a first-class meeting. I would highly recommend FQI to those considering a business meeting in Charleston. We will definitely be returning in the future.

What a wonderful hotel, right in the heart of Charleston. The room was lovely and spacious with many little luxuries to enjoy. There's a true southern charm to this location and the staff made sure they were friendly, helpful and attentive to our needs. Charleston is a wonderful walking city and the French Quarter Inn is nicely situated to be a great respite from your visits. I really have to write another line about their staff: they were wonderful. The valets knew your name and the front desk went out of their way to assist in any way possible. The bed and bedding were excellent. The breakfast was very good with lots of variety and the cookies and milk at night were a treat. We loved our stay here and would recommend them to friends and family.

We stayed at the FQI for several days in January and were so pleased. Everything was perfection; from champagne at check-in to the lovely breakfast, wine and cheese, and cookies and milk. Our spacious room with a huge terrace was lovely. I felt I was wrapped in cozy comfort the entire time. We loved Charleston, and are already planning a return trip. The French Quarter Inn will most surely be the centerpiece of our return trips.

This is a very pleasant hotel, with friendly staff (who greet you with a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival), large and comfortable rooms, excellent beds, fast free internet, and a very decent breakfast. Everything in the hotel is very good quality (from linen to toiletries), including Tristan – the gourmet restaurant on the ground floor. Views are not great from all rooms (if it matters to you – ask for one on the Northern side, overlooking Market Street), but the location is quiet, safe, and within walking distance of pretty much everything you may wish to see. They offer several perks, from daily free cheese & wine receptions, to cookies & milk. Southern hospitality at its best.

Room Tip: If you want a view - ask for 3rd floor on the Nothern side

What a pleasant surprise. We saw all of the other hotels and for service, ambiance, quality and location this was a first class find. Breakfast, wine and cheese reception and milk and cookies were icing on the cake

Words don't begin to describe the beauty and wonderful atmosphere of the FQI! From check-in to check-out it was a wonderful experience. Your stay begins with a glass of chilled champagne and fresh lady fingers! Your room will be clean with spacious bathrooms and the most comfortable beds ever! Our room even had a fireplace and balcony:) Every afternoon they have a free wine and cheese reception and every evening you are offered cookies and milk. I have to say my favorite "perk" was the FREE room service breakfast! This hotel is top notch and it is why I keep coming back! The staff too is MAGNIFICENT.... especially Michelle, Madison, and Justin who ALL made my stay even more special! This hotel should be a must stay for anyone!

From the champagne at reception through to our checkout we found the Hotel to be outstanding. The staff was wonderful, the room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese as well as the evening cookies and milk! The location of the hotel is in the heart of the historic district. We did not need our car during our stay and we were able to walk to everything! We loved being near the market. The City tours arranged by the Concierge were terrific. The only downsides (and they were minimal) were the lack of a good reading chair and lamp in the room and the lack of options on the room service menu. Also, the restaurant was not open on Sunday so there was no room service available at all. But, there were so many restaurants nearby it was not a big issue. It's just convenient to have some food options in the hotel for those evenings when you want a bite to eat in your room. We would surely stay there again!
