My sister and I recently stayed at the French Quarter Inn and were pleased with the kindness of the staff, the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel and the spaciousness of the room. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and there was a wine and cheese reception, followed by brownies and milk in the later evening and chocolates at bedtime. The hotel is located near the City Market and there are lots of other things to do close by. We never had to worry about parking because valet parking was available.

Hotel's Favorite
We booked this hotel based on reviews. We assumed it would be very nice , but also thought that it would be different due to covid. We were wrong. This place is as beautiful as all the reviews stated. The staff is levels above other hotels on all counts. They are ultra professional and sincerely friendly. The first impression from the greeting of the valet gentlemen, through the front desk people is top notch. We got there way to early to be checked in, but they brought our luggage in, recommended a nearby restaurant for lunch, and arranged for a driver to get us to our dinner reservation. This was all before we even officially checked in. The deluxe corner terrace king room was gorgeous. Very comfortable and sparkling clean. We were very comfortable with the safety protocol they were following from masks to elevator policy, and how immaculate everything appeared. We assumed there would be a major cutback of amenities. They had to adapt the amenities and they did it wonderfully. They still had options for breakfast in your room, lobby, or outside terrace. Everything was wrapped and packaged to a great level of protection. The bathroom amenities were all high end and nicely presented. The shower is awesome. This hotel deserves every award and good review it has earned. The staff at all levels is fantastic. We won’t need reviews on our next trip to Charleston. We will call the French Quarter Inn. We hated having to go home. You will too.

I recently stayed at French Quarter Inn for my birthday. Everything was absolutely wonderful from the driver, staff and management. First, if you have to visit the inn and is in need of transportation Kalef is wonderful. He is informative,timely and vechile was very clean. Inn can provide contact information. As noted by several reviews, staff is very accomdating and aim to please. Rooms are very well appointed with large area space. Inn is located in a prime area, so finding restaurants would not be a problem. The Inn does provide breakfast more on a continental style( coffee, jucies, teas, bread/pastries,etc.) that can be delivered to your room. Delivery is very timely or as indicated on hang card. Sanitizers and disposable hand wipes are located all over property. Masks wearing and social distancing appeared to be well enforced in Charleston. This was my second time visiting the area and staying at this property. My main focus was relaxation, catching up on reading, snuggling around the fireplace and just escaping. The Inn meet all my expectations. I highly recommend a stay at the French Quarter Inn, it's a decisions that will not be regretful.

I first stayed at the French Quarter Inn in 2011. Since then, I have tried every other top hotel in Charleston only to realize that the FQI offers the best experience and value of them all. They just do things right, across the board. The breakfast is superb; don't miss it. This is my go-to in CHS, and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Thank you, as always, for a memorable and relaxing experience. "I'll be back!"
