Hotel's Favorite
We booked this hotel based on reviews. We assumed it would be very nice , but also thought that it would be different due to covid. We were wrong. This place is as beautiful as all the reviews stated. The staff is levels above other hotels on all counts. They are ultra professional and sincerely friendly. The first impression from the greeting of the valet gentlemen, through the front desk people is top notch. We got there way to early to be checked in, but they brought our luggage in, recommended a nearby restaurant for lunch, and arranged for a driver to get us to our dinner reservation. This was all before we even officially checked in. The deluxe corner terrace king room was gorgeous. Very comfortable and sparkling clean. We were very comfortable with the safety protocol they were following from masks to elevator policy, and how immaculate everything appeared. We assumed there would be a major cutback of amenities. They had to adapt the amenities and they did it wonderfully. They still had options for breakfast in your room, lobby, or outside terrace. Everything was wrapped and packaged to a great level of protection. The bathroom amenities were all high end and nicely presented. The shower is awesome. This hotel deserves every award and good review it has earned. The staff at all levels is fantastic. We won’t need reviews on our next trip to Charleston. We will call the French Quarter Inn. We hated having to go home. You will too.

So glad we chose this hotel for our stay. Everything that the other reviewers said about how nice, beautiful, and customer service is true. We will be only staying here when we come to Charleston. On the customer service side the ladies who did a brief turndown service for me....we didn’t want one we just arrived but brought us a extra pillow and blanket for us to Sarah who checked us in. Wonderful...wonderful customer service.

Beautiful, clean hotel with impeccable service and attention to detail! Beds were comfy and the bathroom was beautiful with good water temperature and pressure. We enjoyed the free breakfast in our room, as well as the cheese/wine and cookies/milk receptions. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief visit, and hopefully we will be able to return again!

First off the location is great. The service is ok although the people are very friendly. Room was turned down 1 out of 3 nights, manager failed to respond when we asked to speak to him, staff walked into room unannounced and without knocking which led to a very embarrassing naked bathroom moment. We expected a higher standard for the price we paid. The food was repetitive. Whilst the concept of afternoon wine /snacks was great, serving the same meats and cheese for breakfast and afternoon wine by the 2nd day was boring and by the 3rd unacceptable. There was only so much salami and cubed cheese you can eat and I love both but... Once we returned home we reached out AGAIN to the manager who suggested letting him know the next time we are in Charleston. The mark of a good hotel is not when everything is great but what happens when something isnt great. There are lots of lovely options nearby...We recommend trying a different hotel for the $ you will pay.

Dear "magicmully", Thank you for taking the time to provide us at French Quarter Inn with feedback from your recent stay. I am sorry for the inconveniences you experienced. It is not in line with our normally high standards, and for that I apologize. We do have a slightly different account of the events and for how we tried to remedy/make the situation right; that said we recognize we should've done better. Thank you for your time and we wish you all the best. Warmest regards, Carlo Carroccia General Manager
