Each member of the staff with whom we had contact were warm, friendly, professional and competent. We had parked the car across the street, leaving everything we needed in it until we checked in. Next thing we knew, our car had been parked and out belongings moved into our room. All this happened while we sat on the terrace enjoying their complimentary wine and cheese. Excellent wine choices were constantly refilled as we made new friends on the terrace. It was a joy to walk into our room. Graciously appointed and welcoming. Really good night's sleep on the comfy bed. Our stay was short but we look forward to returning to the French Quarter Inn. Our new home away from home in Charleston!

Hotel's Favorite
I cannot say enough about our recent stay at the FQI. The hotel itself is a wonderful combination of charm and opulence without any stuffiness. Perfect for a romantic getaway, a girls weekend, or a family vacation. We immediately felt at home and the staff went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome. As soon as you enter the hotel you feel like royalty ascending the beautiful grand staircase to the warm and open lobby. You continue to be pampered by champagne (or sparkling cider) on arrival, a lovely wine and cheese reception at happy hour, and warm cookies and after dinner drinks in the evening. The rooms are lovely with very comfortable beds and fun amenities. Our kids loved choosing their own pillows from the menu! The breakfast the next morning was just amazing. An extensive and delicious selection with something for everyone, from foodie to picky eater. There is also an extensive gluten free section which was wonderful. The location can't be beat. It is directly on the Market yet hidden just enough away from the hustle and bustle that it retains all of it's charm and privacy. Walking distance to everything you need. (I highly recommend a walking tour which the hotel can set up for you!) All in all the perfect hotel for a stay in downtown Charleston, we cannot wait to return!

The French Quarter Inn was so wonderful to us. Even though our stay was cut short due to the Coronavirus the staff treated us as though nothing was amiss. The breakfast was fabulous. We felt completely spoiled when we left. We did rebook for the fall and look forward to returning. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

We came across this jewel for a 5 day escape from stress and found it was just heavenly. Our comfy room, great lively baroque music, a daily sumptuous complimentary cocktail hour, gourmet breakfast on the porch, topped with warm cookies and milk every night convinced us to spend a lot of time at the inn, resting our tired feet. Their very thoughtful staff made the French Quarter Inn an excellent Charleston getaway.

Excellent room, superb service, aesthetically beautiful, very clean, and delicious food. Expensive relative to chain hotels, but absolutely worth it. Great location, too. Kim and Tori at the front desk made us feel like honored guests, and we were certainly treated that way. Would return again!
