We were spending a weekend in Charleston and searched various hotels in the heart of the historic district, when we happened upon the Fulton. It is tucked away off an alley and is delightful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and well furnished. We loved having our breakfast delivered to us each morning on a silver tray. The food was plentiful and delicious and everything that shoud be hot was hot and the cold food was cold.
We enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese after a day spend shopping in the market and touring the city. In the evening we helped ourselves to a glass of sherry before retiring to our room.
For the money, this hotel is a great deal, considering the chain hotels in the area were about the same cost. Instead of a generic place, you can experience the warmth and charm of Charleston in person. There is parking in the back and for $12 you can come and go. It was convenient and easy to leave our car there and walk around the city.
- 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.
