My husband and I recently stayed at the French Quarter Inn for 4 nights, Oct 12-16 and we could not have been more satisfied with the hotel and staff. The location was perfect, the hotel itself is a great combo of cozy and elegant, and the amenities are spot on. We absolutely loved every breakfast delivered to our room, happy hours with a generous spread and attentive staff filling your glass when needed, and the port and cookies, etc at night, upon our return to the hotel after dinner....all included in the room price. We cannot wait to go back to Charleston and undoubtedly stay at the FQI. We thank Marvin, Jenny, Josh, Matt, to name a few of the most kind and helpful staff members there....THANK YOU all for making our vacation so wonderful.

My wife and I stayed here for our minimoon to Charleston, and we were very thankful to have chosen French Quarter Inn for such a special occasion. The service was excellent, the hotel was clean, and the stay was thoroughly enjoyable. Between complementary champagne upon check-in to free happy hour with wine and cheese, and milk and cookies at night, what was there not to like?

My mother, sister and I recently stayed the FQI for four nights in a Queen Jr. Suite. The hotel is lovely. Upon check-in we were greeted by friendly staff and provided with a glass of champagne. Our room was spacious, clean and well furnished. The bathroom was roomy. Toiletries were good quality. There was a variety of breakfast selections, brought to our room. We especially enjoyed the evening wine and cheese reception each night, along with nightly dessert. All hotel staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent as it was within walking distance of many restaurants and sight seeing. We also enjoyed sitting in the courtyard area.

We booked French Quarter Inn on a recommendation. We loved it! It’s in the heart of the historic district and the main purpose of our trip was to see history. We had complimentary water bottles, access to tea and coffee, free breakfast, and each pm there is complimentary wine with apps. Forgot to mention there also is fruit available in the reception area. One night, we missed the cookies that are offered so the hotel clerk found some for us. Loved our room and the staff was great. We went on to Savannah after this, stayed at a hotel almost the same rate and were offered nothing in terms of anything complimentary. If we wanted bottled water, we had to pay. This struck us as to what all the French Quarter offered Definitely will return

The service was outstanding. From the housekeeping staff, to the room service personnel, and especially the front desk and concierge staff, everyone was happy to help and went out of their way for each guest. The rooms are clean, large, and quiet with comfortable beds. Our room had a balcony overlooking the market. The complimentary charcuterie boards with wine and the nightly milk snd cookies were a nice touch. Highly recommend!
