We chose this hotel because of the location. Right on King Street for shopping, one block from Market Street for more shopping, one block from Meeting Street and historic homes, and two blocks from Church Street and the beautiful churches. If you don't like walking, the Dash trolley picks up right across the street. We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms. We had a petit suite with a king size bed and a sitting area with a fireplace. It didn't get cold enough to use the fireplace, but maybe next trip. The bed was comfortable, with one large wardrobe for clothing. It had two drawers and there were two more drawers in the night stand. Enough storage for two. We asked to see some larger suites to see what they looked like. These had full size closets. The King Suite had a separate sitting room and a full kitchen. Back to our room. The windows looked out on King Street. There was plenty of light and privacy as we were on the 3rd floor. The bathroom was large with both a jetted bath tub and a stand up shower. My husband was pleased that the shower was tall enough for his 6'3" frame. We did not try the free continental breakfast, but we did go to the wine reception in the evening. The wines were good quality. The Chardonnay was Freemark Abbey. There were also crackers, cheese and a dip. A nice appetizer before dinner. We previously stayed at a high end exclusive boutique hotel in Charleston, but we were very pleased with the Fulton Lane Inn.
- 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
