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.
- 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
