Fulton Lane Inn was the perfect place to stay for our honeymoon. As out-of-towners, we had many questions about Charleston and all it had to offer. The staff at Fulton Lane Inn was exceptionally helpful, friendly, patient, and courteous. The rooms were beautiful, spacious, and clean. We truly enjoyed very minute of our honeymoon and would highly recommend Fulton Lane... More

Perfect location-- very convenient for walking everywhere around Charleston. Loved having the complimentary breakfast delivered to our room (on time both days!) and the wine reception for happy hour from 5-6. While we had a lovely spacious corner room w/high ceilings and lots of light, it was in need of a face lift--lots of stains on the carpets, very slow... More

My husband and I loved this place. It's a little unusual in that there is no front check in desk per se. When you walk in the lobby, you will see someone at the desk there -- this person checks in guests and also acts as the hotel concierge. We asked for a quiet room and we loved the room... More

Beautiful room, comfortable bed, romantic jacuzzi tub! What a nice place to come back to every evening after strolling around Charleston. The staff was very pleasant and informative, if you needed for anything, you just asked. We would definately return, close to everything but quiet.

We stayed here during July 4 weekend. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Located in an old building, room was clean, large, and the location of the property was PERFECT for exploring downtown. Didn't love having to pay a daily parking fee but this seems to be the norm. Really the only complaint was the absence of an actual... More

A wonderful intimate inn, romantic and plenty to do. The staff helped us plan our trip out, and all the little extras to staying here were marvelous. We got the package with the rickshaw ride to the Circa 1898 restaurant, the bike rides and packed picnic, breakfast every day in bed, and a bottle of wine delivered to our room... More

we loved this Inn-- and the staff were very helpful and top-notch. Charleston is a beautiful town and this place was perfect for our needs. Loved the room (King suite) and the breakfast in the room was a great added bonus. Be careful with rooms right on King Street- due to the noise level.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Fulton Inn for four nights and it was the perfect accommodation for us. A room with two double beds on the second floor, facing the back parking lot with a lovey big tree at our window. The room was just right, not too much extra space but enough to move around in. At...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A romantic hideaway in America’s most enchanting city, The Fulton Lane Inn is private, intimate and exceptionally accommodating. The Fulton Lane Inn surrounds you with the comfort and gracious ambiance of a bygone era. Many of our spacious rooms feature oversized whirlpool baths and luxurious canopied beds, draped with hand strung netting. Other rooms boast cathedral ceilings and several offer fireplaces.Throughout, soaring windows frame captivating vistas of the city's historic skyline, punctuated with the many trademark church spires. The charm and spirit of the Old South live on in this historic inn, built by the family of Confederate blockade runner John Rugheimer. Regarded as the most sophisticated city in America, antebellum Charleston was the cradle of Southern gentility. The proper Charleston home then welcomed summer's casual pace by covering formal furnishings in airy muslin, replacing wool carpets with sisal, and positioning shutters to admit fresh breezes and to provide gentle shade. At the Fulton Lane Inn, that spirit has been beautifully recaptured. Here, light filters softly through louvered shades, casting an inviting glow on lush plants. The patina of fine woods, natural textures and soft pastels invite you to indulge in the simple pleasures of a more gracious time. During your stay, you'll be pampered with complimentary continental breakfast delivered to your room each morning. Our traditional Southern hospitality continues with sherry in the lobby each evening. Of course, our concierge is always at hand to attend to your every need. You're just a mere stroll from the famous harbor, historic homes and attractions. The Fulton Lane Inn is situated just off King Street, tucked away on a pedestrian lane in the heart of the city's famous historic district. The inn is literally surrounded by countless fascinating boutiques, scores of antique shops and elegant restaurants. There are countless ways to enjoy the Fulton Lane Inn. ... more   less
