French Quarter Inn is one of Charleston’s most luxurious hotels. The best part? It’s particularly charming during the holiday season. Make it your homebase whether you’re planning a trip over the holidays, or just visiting for a few days during the span of the season.
A Boutique Getaway
The boutique inn sits on historic Church Street, right next to Charleston’s famous open-air market. There’s easy access to all of Charleston’s most beloved shops, food, and culture.
With a classic, home-baroque interior and a sweeping, central staircase, the French Quarter Inn is a masterclass in glamour alongside hospitality. Upon check in, enjoy your free glass of champagne before making your way to your room. The Inn is decked out each December-early January with festive touches from top to bottom.
Why You Should Stay At The French Quarter Inn Charleston
Each room boasts amenities like a pillow menu, 40-inch TVs, and evening turndown services. Several of the suites also feature large patios overlooking the city. Holiday-specific amenities for the entire hotel include a special ornament delivered at turndown and classic holiday movie screenings. You can also enjoy the melodies of Christmas carolers on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and nightly milk and cookies.
If you want to really embrace the season, book the special Sleigh Bell Suite. It’s completely decked out in holiday décor, including garland, a tree, and an in-room eggnog bar. Available throughout December, the seasonal suite offers complete privacy and the ultimate holiday experience.
Charleston During The Holidays
These months are a unique time to enjoy the Holy City. A vast majority of the residences don sparkling white lights, garland, bows, and twinkly touches. When you’re ready to shop or explore, King Street and Market Street have their fair share of gems, and Waterfront Park is only four blocks away. November and December in Charleston still have plenty of pleasantly warm days, so grab a complimentary bike from the hotel and hit the streets.
For nearby dining options, we recommend Renzo, a beautifully designed trattoria in Charleston with a cult following, and Tempest for seasonal seafood and an extensive wine list.
Afterwards, return to FQI, nestle up next to one of the lounge area fireplaces, and enjoy a nightcap from the bar.
