“Wonderful spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was our second stay at The French Quarter Inn. It's a lovely boutique hotel, with wonderful amenities and very attentive staff. The location is central to all of Charleston. Although this is a fairly new hotel, it has an old world charm about it. Don't miss the cookies and milk that they serve each night.

Thank goodness for the internet because I dont know how I would have come across the French Quarter Inn in the past. Exceeded expectations and our family of four enjoyed our stay at the Hotel and Charleston imensely. The hotel is classy quiet, they just go about their business and treat you right and make you feel at home. The amenities are great, especially enjoyed the continental breakfast, like no other. The location couldnt have been better with it proximity to shops and restaurants and site seeing services.

I just can't say enough about this wonderful hotel! We stayed here for 3 nights during Spring Break, with kids. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. Upon check-in we were greeted with champagne. At 5:30 there is cheese, wine, and light snacks. There is always coffee, tea, lemonade, and water available near the front desk. There are bikes to use and for goodness sakes - a pillow "menu" should you need something different than what is on the bed. The kids loved the milk and cookies in the evenings! The hotel is in a perfect location. It's super easy to walk and explore everything in the historic district. My kids called it a pretty swank hotel! We had a great visit and hope to return soon!

My wife and I were fortunate to stay at the French Quarter Inn on my first visit to Historic Charleston. I had read about the hotel's many awards and accolades prior to the visit there. The hotel lived up to its reputation. The location is perfect for visiting Charleston, within easy walking distance to the many great restaurants, shops and historic areas of Charelston. However, it is the hotel's customer service which sets this hotel apart from others. From the bellman parking the car, to Marvin at check-in, the attitude was of Southern charm and graciousness, befitting the charming look and feel of this hotel. Our room was quite nice and quiet, the breakfast delicious, with such nice other touches as fresh coffee waiting in the hall in the morning. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Charleston - and look forward to staying there again.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary staying 2 nights here. The staff was extremely friendly, courteus and helpful. Although our room was not ready when we arrived, our luggage was stored so we could go out for the afternoon. We loved the champaign service in the late afternoon, the wine & cheese early evening, and the warm, baked cookies with port each evening. There is always coffee,tea, iced tea and water available as well as M&M candies and jellybeans.The buffet breakfast was very good.The "front desk staff" made us feel at home, were welcoming. They are helpful in giving suggestions of places to go and giving directions. The hotel is very well located - we didn't take our car out until we left Charleston.We were pleased with how quiet it was - never heard noise outside of our room. The hotel is beautifully decorated, luxurious but comfortable.

Our first visit to Charleston was made that much more pleasurable by our stay at the French Quarter Inn. Perfect location, attentive staff, excellent room. Breakfast more than adequate, the early evening wine was enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone and look forward to a retun visit.

I have stayed in some memorable hotels, but the French Quarter Inn may be the most memorable. From the well-trained and courteous staff, to the spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, this hotel delivers an unforgettable experience. My family and I were especially impressed by the bountiful breakfast, the late afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres, and the evening port and freshly baked cookies, all served in the comfort of a well designed and elegant lobby, with adjoining terrace. That the hotel is centrally located in the heart of Charleston's historic district, just steps from the City Market and other sites, adds to its charm. I will definitely return!

Room Tip: We had a spacious queen junior suite with balcony. The views were wonderful.
