My husband and I spent four nights at the French Quarter Inn and loved it. The hotel was beautiful and convenient to everything. The room was wonderful- great pillows. I loved the turn down service with the little chocolates a d water. The breakfast was nice. We are in our room all four mornings and tried each of the offerings. All four were very good. We loved the wine and cheese hour and the milk, cookies and port. The front desk was always helpful (love the m&ms! I would absolutely stay there again.

Hotel's Favourite
We booked this hotel based on reviews. We assumed it would be very nice , but also thought that it would be different due to covid. We were wrong. This place is as beautiful as all the reviews stated. The staff is levels above other hotels on all counts. They are ultra professional and sincerely friendly. The first impression from the greeting of the valet gentlemen, through the front desk people is top notch. We got there way to early to be checked in, but they brought our luggage in, recommended a nearby restaurant for lunch, and arranged for a driver to get us to our dinner reservation. This was all before we even officially checked in. The deluxe corner terrace king room was gorgeous. Very comfortable and sparkling clean. We were very comfortable with the safety protocol they were following from masks to elevator policy, and how immaculate everything appeared. We assumed there would be a major cutback of amenities. They had to adapt the amenities and they did it wonderfully. They still had options for breakfast in your room, lobby, or outside terrace. Everything was wrapped and packaged to a great level of protection. The bathroom amenities were all high end and nicely presented. The shower is awesome. This hotel deserves every award and good review it has earned. The staff at all levels is fantastic. We won’t need reviews on our next trip to Charleston. We will call the French Quarter Inn. We hated having to go home. You will too.

There’s a reason for all the good reviews. Location doesn’t get much better than this. For anything else this hotel may lack it’s trumped my service. Anything we needed was taken care immediately and graciously.

Celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary here over a few days and was happy with our choice. This is a boutique hotel. Staff is warm and welcoming throughout all levels of service from valet to front desk and maid service. Would definitely go back here. They were super kind and upgraded our room for our celebration! They are small and front desk doubles as concierge as well. For what they do over all and their efforts they give 5 star treatment to all. They give the same feeling as when traveling through Europe and staying in hotels with similar services and breakfast included.
