“Glorious French Quarter Inn”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

It is easy to see why the French Quarter Inn is ranked the #1 hotel in Charleston by Trip Advisor. The location is perfect, steps from East Bay Street and the city market. We loved the complimentary breakfast in the lobby and the evening wine and cheese. The hotel is simply beautiful, with its winding staircases and attention to every detail. Thank you, Jessica Diaz, and your team for a wonderful visit. We can't wait to return!

The French Quarter Inn is in the perfect location - situated in the middle of the market and wick walk in either direction takes you to abundant shopping on King Street or to restaurant row on East Bay.

Our room was pretty, well maintained and had a large balcony where we enjoyed reading in the afternoon. I highly recommend room 320. Importantly, the bed was very comfortable and the room was well insulated and quiet. Despite being right above the busy market, we did not hear the street noise. We slept very comfortably.

The hotel is nicely appointed and charming. There are beverages and other goodies available all day long, starting with a yummy continental breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed having our coffee and fruit on the patio each morning. During the day there is iced tea and lemonade along with M&Ms and jelly bellies. A cheese and wine selection is available in the early evenings. Finally, milk and fresh baked cookies are available at night.

One of the very best features of this hotel is the staff. From the valet to cleaning crew, they are all friendly, polite and helpful. I must give special recognition to the ladies at the front desk who helped make our trip so enjoyable, starting with our initial phone call to make our reservation. It's apparent that Glori, Faith and Michelle sincerely enjoy helping people! All of their helpful tips and extra efforts to make our vacation a success were much appreciated! We will be back!

Right in the heart of downtown Charleston, the French Quarter Inn offers hospitality unheard of in today's hotel market. It IS expensive, but absolutely worth it. It is very easy to forget the cost when you experience the hospitality and generosity you are sure to find at this beautiful hotel. We (grandparents and two grandchildren) felt so welcome; so well taken care of by the exceptionally polite and efficient staff.
At the French Quarter Inn, guests are greeted with a glass of champagne; wine and cheese are served in the early evening; milk and cookies later on; turn down service with lovely chocolates...and...continental breakfast....all of these niceties are complimentary.
We did splurge on a suite...it was comfortable, quiet, nicely furnished; bathroom was quite luxurious; beds and pillows were outstanding.
I was a bit concerned about being located in the very busy, potentially noisy, market area, but found this hotel to be a peaceful oasis.

This was our third visit to the French Quarter Inn. We have stayed in Charleston before but nothing that compares to the French Quarter Inn. Starting from the perfect location, to the wonderful service, breakfast, clean rooms, etc. I could go on and on. You will not be disappointed staying here.

We stayed at the French Quarter Inn for three days following a cruise. The service was exceptional, starting with check-in, where you are given a glass of champagne. The room was very comfortable and well maintained. We booked a package and the coupons and roses I ordered were in the room when we arrived. Continental breakfast is included each day -- either in the lobby or delivered to your room. There is a daily wine and cheese reception at 5 pm, and fresh baked cookies at 8:30 pm. The hotel is perfectly located in the old town area, a block from the (renovated) city market, and convenient to historic homes, restaurants, shopping, churches, etc. during our visit, we also did a private carraige ride around the old town that was terrific.

Best hotel we have stayed at in some time. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: a room overlooking church street would probably have the best view
