This hotel was SO classy and beautiful. You get a complimentary breakfast brought to your room each morning, wine/cheese cocktail hour every day, cookies and milk every night before bed, champagne at check-in, and on and on. The staff was amazing and SO friendly, and the best part of the hotel was the Pillow Menu- you get to select what kind of pillow you'd like to sleep on and they'll bring it to you upon request. This hotel truly makes you feel like royalty and if I ever go back to Charleston again, I'll be staying here!

French Quarter is an exceptional hotel and offers wonderful service. Beautifully appointed, though it is showing some age. I would recommend FQI to anyone coming to Charleston and staying Downtown.

We had a wonderful stay. They are so attentive to their guests. I had casually mentioned to to the front desk that we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. The following day we returned to our roon to find a tray of chocolate covered strawberries with a beautifully written card thanking us for choosing their hotel to celebrate our anniversary! The bed was amazing and they even have a menu to choose special pillows. I highly recommend this hotel! Our stay was perfect in every way!
