The four-story French Quarter Inn blends seamlessly into the heart of Charleston’s tree-lined historic district. Inside, a glass of champagne awaits guests at check-in; a wide staircase, embellished with a wrought iron banister, spirals up toward an ornate skylight; and an eclectic array of sophisticated French furnishings evokes the elegance of the city’s past. The 50 guestrooms have plush European bedding, Provençal-style tufted benches and spacious balconies with city views. The apartment-like suites enable guests to stretch out, soak in a Jacuzzi tub or cozy up to a crackling fireplace. The bathrooms are equally spacious and elegant, with walk-in showers and plenty of luxury bath products. Best of all is the hotel’s pillow menu, which offers seven choices, so even the most finicky sleeper should get a good night’s rest.
In the Area
Visitors can walk the cobblestone streets from the Battery to the French Quarter, immersing themselves in the city’s Old World charms. Hail one of Old South Carriage Tours elaborate chariots, which allow you to do some virtual time traveling, clopping down narrow cobblestone streets lined with colonial and antebellum buildings. You’ll cover 30 blocks of the historic district in an hour. Or visit the plantations of yore, including Boone Hall Plantation, with its avenue of moss-draped oaks, or Middleton Place, which has America’s oldest landscaped gardens. And with some of the country’s most beautiful golf courses (designed by a who’s who of the fairways: Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Rees Jones), Charleston can’t be beat if you’re looking for outdoor beauty while challenging your game. Don’t miss the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, a barrier island dominated by five stunning designer courses.
How to Get There
Such a lovely hotel in the heart of everything! Great, comfortable bed, wonderfully large bathroom. The staff was always spot on if I needed something, and the rooms were so extremely well kept. I was to stay 5 nights, but only stayed for 4 due to the scare of when Dorian was going to hit. The manager completely understood my need to change flights and graciously did not charge me the for the night I couldn't stay.
This was my first trip to Charleston and will not be my last. I will certainly not hesitate to stay here again!
What can I say! This is an absolutely wonderful hotel! From check in to check out our experience was wonderful! Breakfast was excellent and Happy Hour was fabulous! Let’s not forget about the milk and cookies at night, All this is complementary with your stay. Rooms were large and clean. My only regret is that this hotel isn’t closer to my home! Would definitely stay here again!
Room was perfect. The hotel put champagne and glasses in our room as a special congratulations. Was not expected!! Breakfast, wine and cheese, cookies and all the other special attention that the hotel gives all their guests was above anything you could have asked for. We definitely will be returning.
