This is not a hotel, it is a home. Felt like I was either back at my grandmothers or in a romance novel. Staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. The location fantastic. Clean and large rooms. The breakfast is basic but enough to get you started.

Beautiful Inn with lots of charm. Close and within walking distance to much of Charleston. Stayed here once about 5 years ago, and since then, there have been many updates. Very clean and the staff is super friendly! We love the location and the setting is classic southern style. So cute and quaint! Yes, we would stay here again!

Had a nice couple of days at the Fulton Lane Inn in February. Perfect location for the historical district in Charleston, very close to the City Market. Parking was easy and affordable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Comfortable bed and room. Continental breakfast was delivered to the room, I'd say just "ok". The wine and cheese late afternoon was a...

This Inn was so charming! My husband and I absolutely loved our stay. It was our first time in Charleston. The evening concierge, SuSu, made dinner reservations for each night of our stay and also recommended items from the menu to order. Her recommendations were spot on! We loved having our breakfast served in our room as well as meeting...

Clean, kind people. We enjoyed our stay and loved having our breakfast in bed. If you are looking for a quiet hotel in the center of it all then The Fulton Inn should be on your short list. We will be back.

This inn is located down an alley off King Street right in the middle of the downtown area - everything you could want to visit is walkable from here. It is very much a European type small hotel right down to having a real room key instead of a plastic card. My room was large and attractively decorated; the four...

I love Charleston. There is a wonderful collection of boutique hotels and this is one of them. Location is very central to downtown. Tons of shopping, dining and tourist activities within walking distance. The lobby is off an alleyway and has a great secluded feel to it. Parking (notoriously tough here) is a breeze. The rooms are a mixture of...

Going to the Holy City? Stay here. The location, the accommodations, the parking, the staff, the delivered to your room continental breakfast, the vino at 5pm, the sherry in the evening....how much more can I say???

My wife and I have stayed here a number of times over the past two years. Within the past year the rooms and baths hrave been redecorated .

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
