“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Certainly one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. I see it as a large boutique hotel. The location is perfect - you can walk anywhere. There is no restaurant, but the hotel is surrounded by restaurants. Instead they offered so many little amenities that made our stay special - champagne when we checked in, an evening serving of port, fresh coffee in the corridor outside our room every morning, etc. Their breakfast is described as 'continental' but is much more than that, with almost everything you could want including champagne and orange juice. Our room 310 was very comfortable, with a large outdoor terrace. I would definitely stay here again.

This is how a hotel should be operated.The room was large clean and very comfortable. The location could not have been better. The entire staff was excellent. Everything about the French Quarter Inn was perfect.

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was the best hotel experience I have ever had. The amenities alone are incredible (champagne at check-in, mimosas for breakfast, wine and cheese reception in the evening, and delicious chocolates at night to name just a few) but the service is what really made the experience for me. All of the staff was incredibly kind and friendly and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. I want to mention Treyvon, Valentina, and Mr. Paul especially for their kindness and hospitality. This is the only place I will stay in Charleston from here on out and I recommend the same for anyone visiting this richly historical city.

I'll keep this short as there is little to add to the previous reviews. The hotel is fantastic. Our room was one of the largest I have ever stayed in; it was beautiful, comfortable, spotlessly clean and had a little balcony overlooking the market. Every morning there was fresh coffee in the corridor just outside our room. The breakfast was excellent, the complimentary wine was good quality and all the staff were lovely.

This is a great location, over the top excellent staff. Went above and beyond in helping plan my parent's 50th anniversary. They said their stay could not have been better and Jenny was a great help in all of that.
Thanks for everything!

Although this hotel is somewhat pricey, it cannot be beat for the value. The location is just steps away from the center of town. The rooms were lovely and the hotel is unique in its afternoon wine and cheese offering. Sweets and beverages are available later in the same lobby setting. This is a first class operation and no visit to Charleston should be complete without a stay in this outstanding hotel which offers the best of southern hospitality

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the patio offer an oasis in the city

My wife and I have been visiting The French Quarter Inn in Charleston, SC for many years now (since soon after they opened). Each visit has been wonderful and this last visit was no exception. In fact the hotel has recently upgraded its furnishings and returned to classical music played in the lobby which we really enjoy.

The service is top notch from the reservations, to check-in, bell service, housekeeping, etc. We enjoyed working with Karen Wharley and "Lori" in Reservations - they were helpful and professional. The front desk staff is always friendly and helpful as well, and also knowledgeable of the Charleston area. We enjoyed Michelle and Jenny who work the front desk.

The General Manager, Brent Gresham, takes personal attention to his guests and truly endeavors to make your visit memorable and ensures you will want to return - which we always do !
