My sister and I have just returned from a wonderful visit to Charleston (our first). We had a fabulous stay at the French Quarter Inn. I read many of the prior reviews, and decided that this had to be our choice. Thank you Trip Advisors posters! The French Quarter Inn is perfectly located in the heart of Charleston. Nothing was more than 5 minutes away. We had a great room (214) 2 queen beds with huge balcony and a fireplace in the room. We loved all the little extras (breakfast brought to the room and served on our balcony, pralines and robes left on the bed during turndown service, fresh baked cookies and milk in the evening, wine and cheese before dinner). Housekeeping was great: plenty of towels and the room was always well taken care of. Room service was prompt (received a telephone call that it was on the way--nice touch). Great to have coffee/tea always available in the hall outside our room. Front desk staff was always very nice and helpful. Next time, we want to try their restaurant--Tristan. When we return to Charleston (and we hope to do so soon), the French Quarter Inn is not only our first choice; it is our only choice! Thanks for making this a memorable experience!

We are honored that you chose the French Quarter Inn for your first trip to Charleston and we are ecstatic that your stay was fabulous. Our Junior Suites with Terraces are one of our most popular room types because it is a larger room with oversized bathroom, large terrace, and a great view. You made a great decision to book the Junior Suite for you and your sister. Thank you for your compliments of our staff, amenities, and housekeeping department, they are greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you next and will be pleased to make your reservations at Tristan. We know you will enjoy it as much as you enjoyed us. Thank you.

My husband and I and another couple were aware of all the 5-star reviews and therefore, we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The champagne upon arrival, evening wine & cheese, and 24-hour coffee and tea service nicely complemented the first class rooms and central location. The quiet music added to the elegant feel of the lobby and patio areas. Dinner at Tristan was wonderful and we felt a very good value for the quality of the food and contemporary/eclectic atmosphere. Everything about the accommodations was acceptable or better although I suggest that with the high price of the rooms, the parking fee of $17 per night was a bit annoying. I guess that's typical for top city hotels.

We are delighted we were able to meet your high expectations for your recent stay at French Quarter Inn. Our amenities help set us apart from many hotels in Charleston; we are pleased you enjoyed all of them. Your complements of Tristan are greatly appreciated and will be passed onto the chef. Our apologies for your annoyance with our valet parking fee; as parking in Charleston is incredibly restricted, especially in the historical district, we are required to charge for parking just to ensure we have enough parking available. We hope this tiny annoyance does not keep you from returning again and again. Thank you for your lovely review.

We stayed two nights at the French Quarter Inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. After a long day, how could you not enjoy having champagne while you check in! Our king room was adequately sized with very nice decor. Our bathroom was very large and elegant, which my husband loved. Our bed was very comfortable, with great pillows. It's wonderful to be able to have coffe, tea, or cold drinks any time of the day. I especially liked the nice cup and saucers for my coffee....I'd bring a cup back to my room with delicious cookies for a nighttime treat. The cups and saucers made it more elegant than just styrofoam cups. Afternoon wine and cheese was another treat! Eating out on the terrace was wonderful.....it was so good to be outdoors because we came down from New England where it's been cold for so long.

Because I have trouble walking too far, the location of the hotel was perfect. Market Street with all the vendors was right out the door, with lots of restaurants nearby. We'd highly recommend this inn to everyone. We'll be back again!

When one books a hotel in a city they've never been to it is often with apprehesion and trepidation. That was our situation with our first time travel to Charleston. I have to commend the reviewers at tripadvisor for their "right on" remarks.
When we arrived the front desk staff couldn't have been any friendlier. They discussed our plans for our stay and offered to make reservations where they could. As a result we had some delicious and authentic meals at some lovely restaurants.
The rooms are spotless and the ambiance is lovely. The wine and cheese reception and included breakfast were welcome repasts.
Our stay was more like being in a bed and breakfast, with more privacy, than being in a stuffy, lonely hotel in a strange city. And oh did I mention that the location is PERFECT ? because it is.
The air conditioner in our room failed to remove all of the humidity at times during our stay until we turned it to cooler. The weather was perfect outside however.

The staff were superb.They were friendly and very competent.
Breakfast in the room was on time and delicious.
Our Jr. Suite was very roomy and spotless.

When we returned home a staff person called to inform us we left a couple of gifts in the room. They were shipped to us.

We can't wait to return to this great hotel.
