This Inn has one handicapped room and it was lovely. It is often difficult to find a wheel chair friendly room in old buildings, but the elevator and roll in shower were perfect. The location is near everything, and if you are strong enough to push the wheelchair over slightly uneven surfaces, Charleston is well worth seeing. The people at... More

The only thing we thought this hotel had going for it was that it was a fairly good location. Paint was dull - institutional green. No curtains. 40 watt bulbs in the lights and this made it very difficult to read. No help getting our luggage down and up steps since we were in an area below the third floor.... More

This is not a standard full-service hotel: every room is a bit different and their lobby is quite small. In fact, they share breakfast facilities with their "sister" hotel--King's Inn--next door. But, their sleeping rooms are comfortable and charming and the personnel go out of their way to assist. Their canopied beds are lovely and very comfortable, plus we had... More

You can't get a better location in the historic district. We did not use our car the entire week we were there. The Inn itself has good points and not so good. What we loved - was having breakfast brought our room - we could eat, drink out coffee and read the newspaper. It was very relaxing. The room was... More

Loved our stay. The hotel was clean and in an excellent location. We enjoyed the breakfast delivered to our room. Every night, the concierge would ask us how our night was. The price was good for the area. I would certainly recommend this hotel to someone traveling in the area.

This quaint small hotel is in the heart of downtown Charleston, on King Street. Parking is behind the hotel and is free with hotel room. There is a hearty Continental Breakfast served until 11am. Rooms are clean & spacious, but may be short on the quiet scale - not uncommon with a desired location. Lobby is not grand, by any... More

The Southern charm and authenticity of the hotel as well as the staff was much appreciated! Zane was particularly attentive and knowledgeable; we had lots of questions about where to go and how to get there and he had all the answers. The complimentary in room breakfast was an added treat. Our room (338) had a beautiful view of King... More

Super friendly and helpful staff, especially SuSu. Really nice old fashioned place with high ceiling rooms. Very clean and comfortable and a parking lot adjacent to the hotel. Breakfast included next door at Kings Court for several hours each morning. Very polite and gracious staff. All around great location and place to be, would definitely come back!

We arrived late and left early, so we didn't fully experience or appreciate the potential charms of this hotel. It was a bit difficult to find, and we didn't love parking in the lot behind the building and dragging the bags to the side entrance, but had we paid more attention we might have found the entrance first and borrowed...

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
