My husband and I traveled to Charleston SC recently on a combined holiday and house hunting trip. We selected the French Quarter Inn as our destination hotel, mainly because of the recommendations on Trip Advisor. Boy are we glad that we selected the French Quarter Inn. We loved everything about our stay. Our room was large and lovely with a King size bed and sitting area, also they provided a computer and printer in the room which was great (WE COULD PRINT OUT DRIVING DIRECTIONS/MAPS OF THE AREAS WE WANTED TO VISIT), and a large flat screen TV which came in handy since my husband hurt his arm on our way to Charleston and we spent a day in the emergency room. Injections and pain medication were a help after they kicked in but it took a few days out of our vacation. The staff did everything they could to assist me in the care of my husband by providing ice for his shoulder, recommending a doctor, and each day always asking how he was and if there was anything else they could do to assist us. JUST GREAT SERVICE AND CARE!!!!!!! Also Jessica went beyond the call of duty on a few nights when my hubby wanted some orange juice and that is not served during cookie time. So she went to the kitchen and retrieved some for us. Very kind and lovely service indeed. So my hubby was taken care of very well.

Our room was spotless and the house keeping was amazing. We enjoyed each night!!!
The Location of the hotel is wonderful as it is situated within walking distance of all the great spots and restaurants that you would like to visit. Also the hotel is amazingly quiet never heard a peek from guests in the hotel or from the outside. The main entrance to the hotel is located on a side street off of Market (THEY HAVE VALET PARKING) which in my view makes the hotel a lot more quiet then most of the hotels in downtown Charleston as most are all located on the very busy streets and at night the street traffic really increases in downtown Charleston as everyone comes out at night in the Summer months to avoid the heat during the day. So we were glad to be in a good location that was really quiet but yet close to all that we desired to do during our stay.

We loved the extra's given to guests: The breakfast was always fresh and so elegantly presented and we loved dining in the foyer with the lovely classical music in the background. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese and it was nice to have a snack before dinner as it gave us more time to browse the restaurants and make our choice without feeling rushed due to hunger. The cookies and milk served in the evening were wonderful and a perfect compliment to the ability for guests to select a movie from the hotel and watch it on the DVD Player in the room and the large flat screen TV. So each evening we had a movie night with cookies and tea as they also served hot tea and coffee in addition to the milk. Also if you wanted you could also get coffee and tea on each floor through out the day as the hotel provides an elegant coffee/tea bar on each floor for guests. I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel, loved our stay and would indeed stay with them again while Charleston

I read a lot of reviews about the French Quarter Inn before deciding to spend a few nights here. I have to say some of the critiques were very nit-picky. I had a room on the second floor - the room was huge with plenty of room to work/spread out. The bathrooms were very large as well (although the bathtub looked like a bulk purchase from bathfitters). Its not always the amentities that make a hotel - true the FQI does not have a pool, there is no fitness center but what they do have is beautiful common areas, fine furniture and terrific staff - from staff at the door to staff at the check-in desk. I would definitely stay here again during my next visit to Charleston.

The FQI is as fine as it gets. The inn is beautiful, elegant, and comfortable all at the same time. The FQI welcomes their guests with champagne and offers guests complimentary wine and cheese, cookies and milk, and a beautiful breakfast daily. The staff's restaurant recommendations were perfect as well. The service was exceptional. We were so pleased with our stay and will definitely return.

We are pleased you think that our hotel is “Fantastic”, because so do we. In the design of the hotel much thought went into the comfort and spaciousness that our guests would be able to experience right in the heart of the Charleston’s hustle and bustle atmosphere. Creating a great experience for our guests is the key to our success. All that you mentioned is what makes us fantastic. Thank you for your review.
