French Quarter Inn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is one of the finest hotel properties we stay at when we travel the World. The ambiance is in tune with the city, friendly, welcoming, efficiency with class. It’s location is perfect and there are lots of fine restaurants within walking distance, along with shopping & historic sites. We walked to the Ft. Sumter National Park boat for a visit to this piece of history and enjoyed a beautiful day. We had meals at High Cotton and Blossom, but the amenities at French Quarter are so wonderful, we spent mornings with complimentary breakfast, afternoons with complementary wine, cheeses, & meats, and evenings with complimentary port, & desserts. Everything is top quality and the staff are first class and accommodating. We have visited Charleston many times and stayed a couple of times at B&B’s but now the French Quarter Inn is our destination of choice in this favorite Southern city.

Everything was perfect!! Room was lovely, bed very comfy and nice cite view. Walking distance to many fine restaurants and stores. The marketplace is only steps away and the waterfront a quick walk.

The French Quarter Inn is conviently located by the best restaurants and tours. The Spectator Bar and Ruth Chris Steak house are steps away from your room. The breakfast buffet is full of wonderful things to start your day and you can order your breakfast to your room at not extra charge ! Just put your order on your door by 11 pm the night before. There is a cheese and wine reception in the early evening and then end your day with warm cookies and milk . Port wine is also available. They also offer a pillow menu. The beds are super dreamy! We will definitely be back if our travels take us back to Chareston!

We have stayed in various accommodations all over the world. This was one of the best for location and staff. Amenities included Champagne on arrival, afternoon wine and cheese, evening cookies and milk/port, continental breakfast each morning.

We were welcoming by a beaming agent with Champage, bottled water and early check in. Our room was impeccably clean and was refreshed by the same friendly housekeeper each day, even if we were slow to get out of her way! The location in FrQtr is perfect for exploring tho the Breakfast, Wine and Cookie receptions almost make you want to just stay in!

Wonderful hotel, excellent and attentive staff. There's always lemonade, coffee and ice water available. The rooms are clean, modern bathrooms and historic looking rooms with big headboards. The bike rental service is an excellent way to see the city. It's in the heart of the city but quiet as well. Highly recommend!

Charming, clean and very friendly inn in a great location. Wonderful amenities and close to Market Street and many great restaurants.

Love everything about this place except valet check in and check out very slow. Takes about 20-30 min to get car from valet

This is a beautiful hotel with lovely rooms, wonderful amenities and a very attentive staff.

This fantastic hotel is in a perfect location for walking to sites, restaurants and shopping. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. All the food perks were excellent as well, from the convenient coffee station, breakfast, afternoon wine, and late night dessert. Staff is very well informed, courteous and helpful.

My wife and I visited Charleston for our anniversary and decide on this hotel for our stay based on the location, and the reviews. We were not let down with either. When we checked in, we were a bit early for the room so we left our bags and went for a walk. During our initial check in, we were given a glass of champagne and we sat in on the terrace to drink it. We were also given some recommendations for a good lunch spot, along with the coupons for it. The recommendations were spot on and enjoyed lunch before heading back. The check in went well afterwards and the room was great. The bed was very comfortable and were even given a a choice of different pillows. Most of the trip was spent around town and everywhere we went was walking distance. There are tons of amazing restaurants right by the hotel and the market is right next door, the horse carriage tours right next to that. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. There is a cheese and wine hour which was great as well as a dessert hour that was wonderful. The whole experience was excellent and I would highly recommend this hotel.

They provided so many included amenities. Champagne in lobby all day!

I can not say enough good things about this hotel! Excellent location, wonderful staff, and the amenities were unbelievable! The breakfast provided is delicious, the evening wine reception was wonderful, and the evening turn down service with treats was a great way to end your day! The staff would do anything to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

This is my second stay at this hotel and it was as amazing as the first. Front desk is helpful and friendly and our room was comfortable. In the heart of Charleston walking distance to everything.

Loved the hotel. Staff was wonderful! Great food, from breakfast to cocktails at 5:30 to cookies & night snack at 8:30.

My wife and I stayed at the French Quarter in for a getaway weekend and it was the perfect place to stay. Customer service by all staff was excellent. They really go out of their way to genuinely make your stay not only pleasant but awesome. Concierge was excellent. It was like have a personal assistant to find and make dinner reservations, theater tickets and even calling us while out on the town to confirm our reservations for events they had booked for us. Champagne at check in and a great spread or wines, meats, cheese, etc...at 5:30 was awesome. Breakfast were a great touch as well with all of the basics including bagels and lox. The location is ideal as everything is right outside your door. The use of hotel bicycles was a terrific way to se the city as it is all flat and very little traffic so you can get around quickly and have a great time pedaling around town. The French Quarter Inn was the ideal place to stay and is the only place I would stay when returning to Charleston.

Although the room rates were expensive, the value for dollars were very reasonable. Everything was as you would expect froma 4-5 star property.

Fantastic room, great balcony. Loved the breakfast, enjoyed the wine, cheese and snacks every afternoon. Great location, in the center of everything. Would definitely go back. Wish I was there now.

Stayed in Charleston previously. First time at the French Quarter Inn and we are looking forward to returning. Outstanding amenities, very helpful staff, relaxing! Breakfast was excellent with many choices. Perfect location, room was perfect. Thank you all so much.

I have stayed here several times and it is always great! Perfect location, you can walk to everything in the historic region and restaurants, great wine/cheese at night and good breakfast continental breakfast. You won't be disappointed here
