I recommend you stay here at this wonderful hotel. They spoil you with so many amenities. The service, food, location and comfort are 💯. It all started with Jenny at the front desk. She made us feel at home and it was off to the races. Great place!

In all my travels, including New York and Boston, the French Quarter Inn is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed. The service from the staff is above and beyond anything that I have ever experienced. Their breakfast along with the wine and cheese in the afternoon were excellent. Don't hesitate, book this hotel if your are ever going to Charleston.

The hotel deserves a review! While the hotel is beautiful, the amenities and service put this hotel above all others! Everyone we came into contact with were lovely, but a specific thank you to Josh snd Jenny for showing what southern hospitality truly is! Our suite was beyond comfortable and then the welcome champagne, daily snacks, amazing breakfast, wine and cheese cocktail hour snd the nightly cookies with milk snd sherry put our stay over the top - oh and the nightly chocolate and turn down service were amazing. Everything is done with a smile. We’ve stayed all over the world and no one made us feel so much at home. Looking forward to our next visit!

My wife and I stayed at the French Quarter Inn for three nights in early July of 2022, and have only the best things to say about the hotel. The rooms are very nice, but not over the top. Location is also very good. But what sets this hotel apart are the services. First of all, they serve a complete complemntary breakfast every morning in the lobby or on the adjoining patio, which is followed by fruit, cold drinks, coffee, fruit and candy out all day, a beautiful spread of wine and cheese every afternoon, and cookies, drings and coffee late at night. Bikes are complementary every day. And to top it off, the staff was the most friendly and helpful we have experienced in a lifetime of travel. They provided suggestions and reservations, they brought in a roll away bed when our 26 year old son arrived a day early for the next leg of our trip, treated him to breakfast in the morning, held our car and luggage for us after our checkout so that we could continue to explore the city, and just could not have been kinder or more welcoming. If we go back to Charleston we'll stay at the French Quarter Inn again, and if you're traveling you should do the same.

This our favorite hotel ever! There is so much to enjoy between the wine and cheese hour, milk and cookies at bedtime, and so many more small touches. My husband and I just stayed for our 10 year wedding anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it one to remember. Jenny at the front desk was THE BEST! She took such good care of us. Carlo the GM went out of his way to greet us by name and make sure we were enjoying our stay. Toby worked extremely hard to make sure everything was perfect. Josh in valet was also so friendly and welcoming every time we came and went. We will definitely be back!

We checked in for a 2 night stay, Friday and Saturday. Since we had dinner reservations, we couldn’t wait to get help with luggage. They seemed short and told us it would be awhile to get our stuff to our room, so my husband and I lugged everything up. I wanted to grab a coffee since they said they had coffee 24/7, but when I made up my cup and took a sip it was barely warm so I threw it away. The room was really nice but for $750/ night we sure expected more. I will post pictures of the balcony and part of the reason it was more and my disappointment. The balcony had a think slime/mildew over multiple sections you had to walk around. I just feel for the price point, this should not have been the case. We got breakfast in our room Saturday morning but it was cold. We had planned to have a nice breakfast on our balcony. When paying this much per night so many things should been better. When we got back from dinner we wanted a drink and we were surprised to find out they have no bar so they sent us to the hotel next door. The location was great and the staff was friendly. I would not stay again, especially with all the other choices in Charleston.

What a perfect place! Comfortable, spotless and luxurious. The staff family is amazing and made us feel the same. Marvin, Josh, Kim, Jennie and Ely especially. The included breakfast and cheese and wine in the afternoon is a delightful surprise. Will never stay elsewhere. We walked to shops, galleries, restaurants and historic streets. Oh did I mention turn down service and never ending chilled water?

My family ( husband, 8yo daughter, and 11 yo son) had a wonderful weekend stay at FQI. From the moment Jenny greeted us at the front desk, she made us feel welcomed and cherished. My son was even impressed she remembered his name the following morning! The service was impeccable, the room spotless, breakfast was delicious and the beds are insanely comfortable! I thoroughly recommend this hotel if you want to be in the heart of Charleston, walking distance from everything!

The hotel is very clean, and the staff was so wonderful. The turn down lady, Anne was so kind to my Mother. She hit her leg and was kind getting her ice and caring for her. I appreciate all the southern hospitality.
