Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 October 2017

Our party left Charleston agreeing that on future visits we would not even consider staying anyplace else. We'd encountered all kinds of amenities we'd never expected (e.g., water, fruit, and snacks to take with us when we left the hotel to explore the city and a wine and cheese hour in the late afternoon). And, all the expectations we did have were met or exceeded. The room was beautiful, the service prompt and gracious, the location perfect and the whole atmosphere one of friendly gentility.

I noticed one reviewer on Tripadvisor complained about the amount of walking she had to do, and another about the difficulty of driving around and parking. I don't understand this. The city of Charleston provides DASH, a clean, convenient, reliable shuttle service to virtually anyplace in the historic district-- and it's FREE! You just get on and off whenever and wherever you want.

Room Tip: We just accepted the room we were given and it was perfect.

I stayed here with my daughter and we had a fabulous weekend in this beautiful city! I spent a lot of time searching for a hotel among so many options and chose this location based on the many reviews . Indeed the location was convenient although most stores in the area close by 6pm or earlier. The Uber from airport was about $23 and I am glad I didn't rent a car as we walked nearly everywhere (miles each day)which was a good thing since we ate our way through Charleston! Thankfully the Fulton Lane Inn offers chilled bottled water in lobby , a nice touch . This hotel is quaint and it's a quiet respite after a long day of sightseeing. My room was not as clean as I expected as there were bugs in the light fixture and hair on the floor that did not get vacuumed . Worse inconvenience was the internet which was not accessible despite hours I spent trying to troubleshoot night after night. I ended up having to go in the hallway to use the wifi which was not ideal, especially for paying $300/night ( front desk told me I could come down to lobby to work). So I give a mixed review for this hotel . Maybe we just had bad luck but it did not keep us from having a nice time in Charleston even though I lost valuable time and the room could have been cleaner.

We wanted a hotel which reflected the character of Charleston and wasn't just a modern block. The Fulton Inn fulfilled all this. The entrance is down a side alley so you have to look carefully as you travel down King St. There is public parking behind the hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a large light corner room which was quiet. We loved the invite for pre-dinner drinks at 5pm and the sherry available in the lobby later. A continental breakfast is served in your room and whilst this was fine there were a few things missing and we had to ring down for them. They arrived quickly though.

Room Tip: The corner room was large and light.

This hotel was very clean , very nice.
They would bring breakfast to your room at the time you wanted it. However it was in the "high end" part of town. Be prepared to walk a lot in Charleston. We found it somewhat difficult to find things to do near the hotel. It's impossible to drive anywhere in Charleston. The traffic is horrible and there is NO parking. We ended up going to the outskirts of town everyday we were there. We went to the aircraft carrier and marina and under the big bridge. Everything was SUPER expensive. Charleston was my least favorite place we visited on our south trip.

We usually stay at a commercial chain hotel and this was a great alternative. It really is a combination of everything we read about: easy parking, great location, price point, nice rooms and the breakfast selection you choose the night before that is delivered to your room. Added together it made for an enjoyable stay, loved the high ceilings and the internet connection was excellent.

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
