French Quarter Inn

166 Church Street , Charleston, SC 29401 USA (Show map)


The French Quarter Inn, known to many as one of the best Charleston SC Hotels, overlooks the Charleston City Market and St. Philip's steeple. The French Quarter Inn is an inspiring treasure surrounded by American history. This small luxury hotel continues to be Charleston's landmark of timeless elegance. The Inn’s newly redesigned rooms are inspired by the old world elegance of a Parisian chateau set against the architectural backdrop of Charleston’s classic French Quarter. Red medallion-patterned draperies and damask chenille upholstery in hues of black, white and gold create a rich distinction between the fabrics and furniture, of the highest quality.
