Come and join us for the festivities! French Quarter Inn will be fully decorated with a 15-foot Christmas tree in the rotunda with complimentary offerings including cider, hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies. Don't miss out on holiday celebrations at Charlestons most award-winning hotel!

The Sleigh Bell Suite

The ultimate holiday hideaway, our holiday suite is completely decked out in festive decor with garland and mistletoe. Enjoy special in-room amenities including freshly baked cookies & milk next to the fireplace, and bourbon-spiced eggnog.

This year, in honor of beloved Charleston native Darius Rucker, the Sleigh Bell Suite includes a $100 donation, made on behalf of guests, to Rucker’s preferred philanthropic organization St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and French Quarter Inn will match this $100 donation for every suite booking,

Guests will be greeted upon arrival to the suite with the sweet sounds of Rucker’s album Home for the Holidays as well as a copy for them to take upon departure to bring the good tidings home.
