We just spent two nights at the Fulton Lane Inn in Charleston in a spacious, airy room with large windows that we could open---yea! It would be difficult to beat the location of this small, charming inn on King Street within walking distance to restaurants, riverfront, shopping, and the market. Parking is immediately outside in a secure lot and very reasonable at $12 a night.
Happy hour at 5 p.m. includes various cheeses and reasonably good wines. I enjoyed an Oregon Pinot Noir---not too shabby. A continental breakfast of items of your choice is delivered to your room along with USA Today at a time you choose. The bed was large and comfortable, the shower good, and although we faced King Street and slept with the windows open, it was very quiet. If you're looking for a sleek, high-tech hotel/inn, this is not it. But if you are looking for warm ambiance and Southern hospitality, than the Fulton Lane Inn will make you happy. We will definitely stay here when visiting Charleston again.
- 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
