We made our first visit to Charleston as part of our 30th wedding anniversary and chose to stay at the French Quarter Inn based on other reviews. We could not have been more delighted. We could not think of another place in all our travels during that time that paid attention to every detail, anticipated their guests needs so well, and executed so flawlessly.

Can't even imagine a better hotel. Pampered in luxury from the moment of our arrival. This one sets a whole new standard for us. Spacious rooms, appetizers, cookies and milk at night. Spectacular breakfast with fine charcuterie and Greek yogurts. Simply heavenly. Wasn't planning on coming to Charleston, so glad we took a detour off the beaten path. This is an amazing city of great historical relevance. Perfect area of town to explore in mini sessions then get out of the heat to relax. Loved it!

The French Quarter Inn is the panacea for any troubles you may have. Their service is spot on and the "spoiling" begins with check in and your glass of champagne.

Visited over Labor Day weekend so prices were hiked a lot. The hotel is in a great location. The inclusive breakfast is pleasant and they seem to have a 2 day cycle. We tried it then decided it was more interesting to eat out. The staff are mixed from very helpful to disappointing so the good get dragged down by the less good to give the hotel an average rating. We went with fiends and the difference in room sizes was a lot. So clearly they are going annoy one of the party. Why do they do that... Read more

So what if some think the Spectator or the Restoration are more hip? The French Quarter Inn is consistently, although often still surprisingly, top notch across all fronts. Service is impeccable from valet to front desk to room attendants. Complimentary food and drink is above and beyond. Cleanliness and outfitting of rooms and common areas is fabulous. The comfort of stay and friendliness and service make this our must stay hotel in Charleston. Although I like "hip", I like "aaaaaahhhhh" mor... Read more

My husband and I spent the weekend here. It was a Christmas gift from our daughter. We had a special time being close to everything in Charleston. Our room had its own private terrace. It was very peaceful there at night listening to the live music from the Irish pub across the alley. It would have been nicer if there had been comfortable lounge chairs on the terrace. All that were there were wrought iron-like straight chairs, a round table and a small table between two of the straight chairs. ... Read more

I was ecstatic when I saw the ceiling fan in our room. That alone was worth the high price to us! Other good things were the wine and cheese and the cookies and milk services. It was great to come in from walking around Charleston to find a quick, convenient bite to eat sitting in the lobby. If these things are important to you, then you may find the price justified. If not, you can get a similar bed/room (sand ceiling fan) for a much lower price elsewhere. The location was good for walking arou... Read more

The French Quarter Inn is rated as the top place to stay for good reason. The location is outstanding, across the street from the city market. You can step from the front door and it is hard to not bump into an historical sight. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel at home. Breakfast comes with the room and is outstanding.

Five couples stayed at The French Quarter Inn in mid October. It was a fabulous and expertly appointed hotel with the most cordial employees. The bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds. A nightly wine and cheese hour was a nice touch. The hotel was superb. Although the hotel does not have a bar, there is a Ruth's Chris Steak house attached that can be entered through the lobby. That Happy Hour is excellent as well. You'll love the French Quarter Inn.
