Located on King St... right in the heart of this historical town.
First of would I recommend? Yes. But I will have to say that while walking around here I saw plenty of intriguing alternatives and we will try somewhere different the next time we visit here. I saw some with outdoor pools and more amenities for about the same rates. Just FYI the King's Court is right next door.
Bottom line this was a nice stay but for $129.99 + parking charges you are paying for the convenience. The rooms at a Fairfield Inn or Hampton Inn are much nicer for a fraction of the cost. It seems everyone who stays around here for a week or more rents a condo or owns timeshares.
The nicest/fanciest hotel in this area here is the Charleston Inn but it runns double the cost of the Fulton.
I originally looked this hotel up at http://hotels.com and now that I am here there are plenty more than what was posted.
Parking: They charge you $12 a day in addition to your rate. It is right behind the hotel and honestly unless you are going to Folly Beach you will not need your car.
Location: It is conveniently located in a block away from Mart St. Excellent location within walking distance from all there is to do here even Ft Sumpter is within a few blocks. There's the market or French Quarters and all the horse carriage rides are all very close.
I now truly understand the difference between an Inn and a hotel in this city. You can barely see this hotel as you drive by. We thought to ourselves "oh my God" this is not what it looked like online BUT...
It is surprisingly very very nice. it is small and personable but with elegance its definately a nice place. The staff here was so friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very nice with high ceilings and beautiful tall windows with great views.
The rooms are a little dated but very nice and clean. The bathroom was okay. The water pressure was just right. I did not care for the lighting. There was none except for the lamps.
There was free wifi access and the rates included a complimentary breakfast and newspaper delivered to your door. But you will not find eggs and bacon on the menu. It is either freshly baked pastries or a healthier choice of bagels, fruits, yogurts, etc...
We had a great experience during this trip and this hotel played a part in it.
- 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
