“Great location, attentive service ...”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Located in downtown Charleston, the Fulton Lane Inn offers convenience, comfort, and restrained elegance typical of the south. Tucked away from King Street, you've got to watch closely for their sign. The best bet is to use the adjacent parking lot's address - found on FLI's web site. The parking lot provides easy access to the main hotel entrance. While the lobby is small, it offers easy access to the receptionist/concierge/cashier/desk attendant. Each of the lovely ladies who staffed the position were helpful with tips about the surrounding area.

We stayed two days mid-week. The base rate was $129 per night, with $12 per day for parking. This was very reasonable considering all aspects of our stay, especially the location and the complimentary breakfast & Wi-Fi. Our second-floor room featured high ceilings, two queen beds and standard amenities. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. I can strongly recommend the complimentary continental breakfast - the cinnamon rolls nd croissants are to die for! We had ours delivered to our room - and both deliveries were right on the time we requested.

Bottom line: I'll be back!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Fulton Lane Inn. It was a comfortable place with unique rooms that were clean and inviting.. The location was PERFECT as it was close to everything. The staff was very accommodating and went overboard to make sure we had everything we needed. We have stayed in many of the hotels in Charleston in the past and for the price.. This is been our best experience. I would Highly recommend it!!!

We stayed in this hotel for three nights over the new year weekend, and it was absolutely fine.
The outside is brick, situated in a quaint alley, and we were greeted by a very helpful concierge. The interior of the hotel and our room were very nice--muted, cheerful colors, and a luxurious feel. It gets three instead of four stars for a couple of reasons: continental breakfast (free) consisted of very weak coffee and soggy pastries; there was one day when the maid didn't make up our room; every morning we were awakened by garbage trucks outside our window.
But overall, it was a pleasant experience, though nothing spectacular.

Having visited Charleston over the past forty years I have stayed at many different locations. I found this property and made reservations friday and saturday night (new year's eve) We parked the car on friday and never moved it until we left on Sunday. What is the saying, "Location, Location, Location" Centrally located we walked everywhere.
The room was well furnished and well maintained. My only problem was it was smaller than I like but since we spent little time in the room that was not a problem. The continental breakfast was fine and we chose to have it brought to the room each morning. This property is part of a group and there is one of their larger properties adjacent where they have full hot breakfast if you desire for a fee.
Parking is provided in a city lot located behind the Inn and the charge was $12 per day which seems to be a standard rate where ever I travel. All in all I'll be back.

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
