We had such a wonderful time at the Vendue. The hotel was beautiful and we loved the art located throughout the hotel. We met the in-house artist and really enjoyed talking with him. Maurice, the bellman, initially showed us around and was very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. Our room was gorgeous, the bed was amazing and the staff was top... More

The Vendue's location is perfect for a Bay Street dining experience. Plenty of very good places within only 10 min walk. The buildings of the hotel are older so don't expect state of the art accommodations. There are copious pieces of art throughout the complex. Most are of the 'modern' variety. The rooftop bar has a great view of the... More

The Vendue is my all-time favorite hotel because of it's uniqueness and impeccable, customized experience. The staff goes above and beyond the call of duty to meet every need whether travelling for work or pleasure or hosting and event there. (I have done all three.) They are also generous with their charitable contributions. If ever there was a hotel to... More

This was our first visit to Charleston and the Vendue was great. Great location for restaurants and for walking to most of the historic areas of old Charleston. Their coffee bar served Starbucks products and their main dining room were very good. They have two roof top bars which are fun.
