“Best hotel in Charleston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

My husband and I travel to Charleston once or twice every year and we try to stay at a different place every time. Our stay at French Quarter Inn may be the last time we try a new place. Our stay was exceptional! We knew we were in for a treat when we drove into the valet drop off. We were greeted warmly and asked our name. I went upstairs to check us in. Another warm welcome from the desk. We were also given a glass of champagne and enjoyed it on their patio. Our room was so nice. We booked for a corner room with a balcony. I would highly recommend. The view wasn't that great but it was nice to overlook the area and the nice weather. We also enjoyed their wine and cheese reception both nights. Very nice spread. We choose to have our breakfast delivered in our room. The quiche was excellent and we had more than enough food. The people were so nice and worth every penny. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor (3rd floor) and had a balcony. The balcony is very big. If you want to en...

My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding. The accommodations and service went above and beyond our expectations. The room was huge and we got all the special treatment one would expect in a honeymoon suite. The next morning we enjoyed ourselves on the oversized balcony overlooking Market Street. Overall, the experience was decadent and we would highly suggest others to stay here while in Charleston.

The French Quarter Inn is the best hotel in Charleston! I have stayed at four and five star hotels all over the country and the housekeeping staff at this hotel was the best. Their friendliness, promptness, and attention to detail was incredible. I really enjoyed the Lavender Lemonade in the lobby. I really enjoyed sitting out on my terrace overlooking the market. Every award the hotel has earned is deserved.

The French Quarter Inn was a phenomenal hotel. Everyone who works there were very friendly and accommodating, our room was beautiful and immaculately clean. I loved the triple sheeted bed and the turn down service. Our bathroom was huge with a big shower. the hotel's location is superb to walk to all the popular sites. The breakfast was great, and the wine and cheese at 5;30PM was an added bonus. What I also loved was the fact that main lobby floor has many places to sit and relax, and I spent an hour or so in front of the fireplace. All my interactions with the staff was great, and a special thanks to Jenny who booked me my room, and chatted with me when I came to say hello. I would definitely return to the French Quarter Inn, and highly recommend it.

Green Features: I noticed that the hotel recycles, and supplies a split trash can for recyclables and trash.

We had the good fortune to stay at the French Quarter Inn recently and we felt so well taken care of that we wanted to share this experience with other travelers. The location could not have been better, the service was attentive and accommodating and the amenities from welcome champagne, to late afternoon wine & cheese, to evening port, milk and cookies were all delightful. The only negative, after you have had a great night's sleep in your spotless room, on their fabulous beds using their amazing pillows, is that you will not want to leave. You will truly want to move in permanently. And finally, we would like to give a special thank you to Jenny (from the first phone call to make the reservation to meeting her and chatting with her during our stay, she could not have been more helpful), and to Marvin and to Emily. We have no doubt that the entire staff deserves cudos but these three lovely people stood out particularly. We look forward to returning!

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms. Both were perfect and quiet! I am not sure if there is a "b...

My husband and I decided to stay at this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and we were glad we did. The room was beautifully decorated, and it included an impressively large bathroom. All staff were all extremely accommodating and pleasant throughout our stay, giving us great recommendations for tours and dining. We were especially grateful to the doorman who shared his background and books about the slaves of Middleton Plantation, as we found it so educational and insightful. We loved the complimentary breakfasts, wine and cheese hour, and the bedtime fresh-baked cookies and dessert wine. The weather was pleasant enough for us to enjoy sitting outside on the garden patio, and location-wise, it was perfect for walking to the finest restaurants and history tours this wonderful city has to offer. We couldn't imagine anyone not being completely satisfied with the French Quarter Inn. We will definitely stay here the next time we come to Charleston.
