“Lovely treat away from home”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We celebrated our twenty second anniversary in Charleston. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Charleston, you can walk to where you want or find transportation. The service and people who work at the hotel are sweet and ready to help. Your room is alway made up and ready when you return from your day.
I would come back in a heartbeat.

Do yourself a favor and look no more. We took our in-laws for their 60th wedding anniversary. We looked and read about all the places to stay in Charleston and ended up coming back to the French Quarter Inn and it was absolutely perfect! The Four Seasons of Charleston. Stay here.

Absolutely adore this hotel from the charming and gracious staff to the delicious food. The breakfasts, wine and cheese reception and cookies and milk are enough food for the whole day......but of course we didn't stop there, there's too much good food in Charleston. It's in a great location by the Market, King Street and Museum Mile. Would definitely come back on our next visit.

Just returned from a stay in the French Quarter Inn as part of a long southern US self drive holiday. I cannot rate our stay high enough - location, room, service, staff, extras all made our stay the best of the trip. Could have stayed much longer. If you are travelling to Charleston this is a must!

Wonderful hotel, great location, good service, lovely amenities. Would definitely recommend it. We had a marvelous time, and it's a value for the money compared to some of the other hotels we priced. Breakfast, wine and cheese, cookies and milk - very tastefully done and a nice break in the day from one sightseeing activity to the next.

This was our fifth stay at the French Quarter Inn and just when we thought they couldn't improve a thing, it continues to get better and better! They recently went through a renovation. The complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent before and now they have added quite a few new items to the buffet. Complimentary coffee, tea, ice tea and lemonade are available in the lobby at all times. Complimentary wine and cheese is offered starting at 5:30 p.m. Cookies and milk are offered in the evening. At check-in I mentioned I had an allergy to down and asked if my pillows could be replaced so as soon as we arrived in our room there was a knock on the door with two ladies holding eight pillow replacements. One evening I inquired when they usually put out the cookies and milk and was told around 8:30 p.m.-- when I mentioned that I might be in my pj's by that time, they offered to deliver our cookies and milk to our room! At 8:30 there was a knock on the door and voila they delivered the cookies and milk! The service and hospitality from the doormen, the front desk staff and room service couldn't have been better. It's like staying at a small Ritz Carlton except with very personal service. On top of this, you can't be in a better location -- right next to the market and within walking distance to many restaurants.

This was one of the most exceptional places I have ever stayed. the rooms were great, the service wonderful, and the inn amazing. Our trip was a much needed break, and we felt thoroughly pampered. The afternoon food and wine and the morning breakfast with the balconies were great. You couldn't ask for a better location. The staff made us feel so at home. I will definitely go back to the French Quarter Inn.
