3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Staff were great, housekeeping was mediocre at best. No curtains on the window that overlooked car park, dirty toilet, very sparse furnishings rumpled bedspread, no mattress pad other than a thin cover. No rooms safe or in room coffee. Great location for city visit. Free unlimited bottled water.

We absolutely loved this hotel! We will definitely stay here again the next time we come back. Everything was neat and clean and the staff was extremely nice! We mentioned we were in town celebrating our anniversary and my twin daughters' birthday and we had a nice goodie surprise in our room!

Great location, great room, and great staff. Susu was very welcoming and friendly. They had a nice bottle of chilled prosecco in the room for our anniversary. Room had a very nice bed, decorated to southern Charleston standards. Also a wine hour next door.

We stayed at the Fulton Lane for 2 nights. It was as advertised. Very good location. The price was okay for downtown Charleston. Some extra costs for parking. The room was spacious, clean, and cool. Overall...a nice stay. Breakfast was next door at a "sister" property. Unfortunately a manager entered the dining area during our breakfast and questioned an employee... More

Beautiful hotel. They offered a wine hour next door and had delicious sherry available in the lobby at night. No bar though which was a little disappointing. Breakfast was full of healthy choices and they gave us a bottle of champagne later in the evening. Also the folks at the front desk were very helpful is digesting places to visit... More

Went to Charleston for a 4-day anniversary getaway and had a wonderful time. The Inn was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and always asked how our day was when we came back for the night. We slept in a very comfy and beautiful canopy bed. The only complaints that I could possibly have would be the low water pressure... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while in Charleston. Ms. Su checked us in our first night and greeted us warmly with helpful suggestions for dinner.

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend and perfect babymoon getaway at the Fulton Lane Inn in Charleston and couldn't have been more impressed with the experience. We stayed in the standard king room, which was both gracious in size and comfort. For an older building, surprisingly the hallways were quiet and allowed us to sleep soundly.... More

After reading some of the reviews here, I was unsure of what I'd find at the Fulton Lane In. It was delightful!! Clean and bright, with a large window and a great little restaurant right next door. The Inn is also in the ideal location for visiting Charleston. My friend and I stayed here for four nights in April during... More

We had never heard of the Fulton Lane Inn but it is hands down one of the most charming and well-run hotels at which I have ever stayed. Our room had a bed with a lace canopy and everything was meticulous and just felt historically appropriate to the setting of historic Charleston. A tremendous contrast to the cookie-cutter institutional feel... More

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
