If you’ve stayed here at the Fulton Lane Inn, you’ve been greeted by the warm smile and laugh of Keisha Hawes, a member of our star concierge team. Between her fifteen-plus years in Charleston, involvement in local charities, front desk post on King Street, and general love for the Holy City, Keisha’s suggestions for exploring our city are always spot-on.
For its “Southern charm, superb restaurants, well-curated boutiques and terrific bars and antebellum architecture,” Food & Wine Magazine recently ranked Charleston one of the world’s most romantic cities. In light of Charleston’s recent honor, Keisha offered up a suggestion for a perfect date night in Charleston. Since joining our team in 2008, she has helped plan anniversaries, birthdays, honeymoons, last minute romantic getaways – you name it!
Keisha believes the Fulton Lane Inn is perfect for the romantic at heart – our secluded location down an adorable alley on King Street, private, light-filled rooms, breakfast in bed… the list goes on. Keisha says:
“My idea of a romantic evening in Charleston would begin with a private carriage tour of the city with a drop off at Circa 1886 for dinner with wine parings. After dinner, enjoy a picturesque view of the city from the Wentworth Mansion’s cupola. Then take a rickshaw back to the Fulton Lane Inn and spend the evening in one of our Cathedral Suites appointed perfectly for a romantic evening with scattered rose petals, candles, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.”
