“Very Pleasant”
Reviewed 14 October 2009

We stayed at the French Quarter Inn for one night en route to Kiawah Island. The first impression was how friendly and helpful the staff were from the valet to the check in desk. The hotel is clean and very appealing to the eye. Nice touches such as the champagne welcome at 3.30pm for new guests (which we didn't partake in) and the general wine and cheese for guests later in the afternoon (which we did). The room was sizable with a refreshingly large bathroom. Complimentary breakfast was available in the lobby or the room...we chose the room. Simple but fine. There were no movie selection on the TV but they had a selection of CD's at the front desk. The location was excellent...right in the heart of the old town. All in all a very nice hotel...would recommend.

Luxury & romance, in the middle of everything. We were made to feel special the moment we got out of our car. It was everything we hoped for and more. The French Quarter Inn is a great place for honeymoons and anniversaries. I would recommend the queen suite with fireplace and private balcony. Free champagne, wine & cheese, coffee & tea all day, and breakfast served where you want it. We will be going back to Charleston someday, and this is where we will be staying!

We have stayed at the French Quarter Inn before, and this time was just as lovely. The staff, room and hotel location are excellent. The little touches really made our stay special. Would definitely stay there again!

After reading so many glowing reviews on tripadvisor, we had high expectations for this hotel. We were not disappointed! The staff was welcoming and accommodating. The room was large and well appointed - we had a room with a separate living room. And the location is perfect; we walked to almost everything. But it's the attention to detail - the champagne at check in, iced drinks all day, wine and cheese reception, cookies and milk at night, turn down service and pillow menu, to name a few - that made us feel pampered and well taken care of. I can't wait to bring my husband in March for our wedding anniversary!

After spending our first night in Charleston at the Courtyard on the river we were ready to go back to Michigan. But, we decided to try the #1 hotel on trip advisor and made a reservation at the French Quarter Inn. It was by far, one of the best hotels we have ever encountered.

We arrive early, 11:30 am and were immediately given a room, just what we had ordered!

After checking in and depositing our luggage in a lovely, clean room with a large bathroom, we went on a tour of the city. Upon returning at 3 pm, we were given champagne and cookies and later in the early evening, wine and cheese, eaten on the beautiful upper courtyard. And when we returned after dinner, again, another treat, warm chocolate chip cookies!

We chose to have the complimentary breakfast delivered to our room, a royal treat! The pastries were warm, the juice cold and the coffee hot. Did I mention there was coffee and tea available in our hallway, 24-7???

The entire staff treated us as though we were honored guests. The valet, staff at check in, the woman who delivered our breakfast, to those who cared for our room, were outstanding.

We will never stay at another hotel in Charleston. It doesn't get any better than this!

Great boutique hotel. Staff was very polite, but not too informative or attentive. I would still stay here above a lot of the other places we saw. Quiet, quaint, in the middle of everything. Comfortable beds, great breakfast delivered to room as a service. Wish there was a spa on site or even a pool, but it didn't distract from our wedding.

What an unbelievable hotel. The staff was great, that included everyone from the reception desk, to the maids, they were all great. The hotel was in a wonderful spot, we had the car parked (recommended, well worth the fee), and didn't get back into it until we left. Breakfast and wine and cheese were both delicious and the cookies at night were so good. Coffee & Tea on each floor is great and very much appreciated in the morning did I mention the newspaper, what could be better. The special touch was the M&M's and Jelly Bellies all day long (what a great idea). This hotel has got to be the best in Charleston. The room were cleaned every day to prefection. We will return some day.
