My husband and I stayed at the Vendue for a long weekend trip. The hotel has lots to offer on site--great concierge service, a rooftop bar, great art in the common areas (with a tour, which we didn't do), among other amenities. The location couldn't have been better--in the heart of the historic downtown on a quiet street about one...

Spent Thursday to Sunday, Easter weekend. Great location, 2 blocks from Battery, 1 block from Ocean, 2 blocks from Market. Walk every where. GREAT staff that make you feel wanted. Its a boutique so it does not have the grand lobby of a Marriott or Westin but that is made up for by great service. I witnessed management meetings discussing...

We celebrated my husband's 50th Birthday and enjoyed every aspect of this dynamic hotel. First and foremost, the staff were so lovely and Mark and Sarah were standouts! Their greetings were so warm! They were welcoming and always called us by name!!! How personable! The location, one block from the waterfront! Wine and appetizers nightly - breakfast- rooftop bar- free...

I just love this inn! Although it has been updated and now has more of an artsy feel, the Vendue maintains its historic southern elegant vibe as well. Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, its my favorite place to stay. Yes, parking is offsite, but they have valet and you can walk anywhere you need to go in the...

The word that I think of to describe this place is "quirky." Is is a great location? Undoubtedly. Were the free coffee and wine reception appreciated? Yes. But they park cars somewhere far away from the hotel and this is a hassle. There is no gym at the hotel and frequent travelers cannot live with that. The concierge is across...

The Vendue Inn is so centrally located, that you can walk to almost everything in downtown Charleston. We love the art which accessorizes the hotel, as well. Its a very upscale feel at an affordable price!

Great location for walking in Charleston. One block from the waterfront; easy walk to many restaurants and shopping. Room was on the smaller side but comfortable. The staff was amazing and very helpful with anything we needed. The hotel has valet parking at a enclosed garage nearby. We only got our car once - to drive out to one of...

It's difficult to pick what is best about the Vendue hotel because it checks so many boxes. Location? Couldn't be much better. Steps from the water, smack in the middle of great restaurants, bars, shops and art galleries, and a short walk from the residential zone filled with historic (and iconic) Charleston homes. Comfort? The rooms are large and luxurious....

The Vendue was nice! We stayed in the annex, across the street, where the art reception was held. The staff was nice, the rooms were clean and well done (though a bit small). The location was great! There were so many restaurants around. The rooftop bar and the press café were great to have right there! I would stay here...

This was by far the best experience I have ever had with a hotel! They went far and above! Everything about this hotel was amazing! From the time we arrived curbside to the time we left, you could have not asked for better treatment! Thanks again. We will be back for sure!!
