I booked this hotel as a Father's Day present for my husband so we were traveling with 2 teenagers. If you have looked at downtown Charleston hotels,many require 2 rooms for families of 4.

We always stay by the water when in Charleston, but as this was a quick business trip, we stayed in town. Therefore, it was our first time at the French Quarter. I kept holding my breath, hoping that I wasn't going to be the ONE person that had a bad stay at the French Quarter. I wasn't --everything was wonderful....

My husband and I have been coming to the French Quarter Inn since it opened (with 2 teenagers along in earlier years). It's always been perfect, so we always know where we'll stay when we visit Charleston.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The AAA Four Diamond Inn's newly redesigned rooms are inspired by the old world elegance of a Parisian chateau set against the architectural backdrop of Charleston's classic French Quarter. Red medallion-patterned draperies and damask chenille upholstery in hues of black, white and gold create a rich distinction between the fabrics and furniture, of the highest quality.Among many other amenities, guests of the hotel enjoy complimentary items such as: champagne and lady fingers at check-in, an evening wine and cheese reception, freshly baked cookies and milk, evening turn down service and gourmet continental breakfast in the lobby or served to your room. The over-sized guest rooms, some with working fireplaces, private balconies, and whirlpool tubs, provide imagery of an era gone by, but still grants contemporary amenities a sophisticated traveler has come to expect. ... more   less
