I had such a wonderful stay at this hotel. It could not have been any more perfect location for me. I was in town for business for two nights. I absolutely loved being by the water and the pineapple fountain, each night I was able to make sunset. The hotel itself is very pretty with wonderful staff that were very...

The hotel was beyond our expectations. Rooms were impeccable clean and service from all staff was friendly and overly helpful, reflecting good management. The location was perfect for walking to galleries, restaurants, and sightseeing. The rooftop bar was fun, wished we had more time to checkout the restaurant. The complimentary Starbucks coffee, afternoon wine and evening chocolates, cookies and milk...

We spent 3 days in Charleston site seeing and golfing. The Vendue is a perfect location for touring. The Press next door is great for coffee and breakfast. The room was very comfortable and real modern bathroom The staff was really helpful. The art throughout the hotel was really neat.

Charleston is dripping with history and Southern style & charm, and this is the perfect place to enjoy what is distinctive about this old American city. We think of the old South as being about the plantations, but Charleston was settled by the French Huguenots, who were traders and city people. So, a place emerged that was prosperous enough to...

Perfectly located off East Bay Street. Easy walk to everything downtown Charleston and water front park is at the end of the block. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. A true boutique hotel. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were first time guests and visitors to Charleston and they were very helpful with information and suggestions. Bar and roof...

Downstairs artwork was interesting. Elevator cue to rooftop was fast and worth it. We only went for drinks and snacks but the vibe was right, the drink service fast at the bar and the bartenders friendly and attentive. Restrooms immaculate. The views were lovely. Will return

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Vendue over Easter weekend. Our room was across the street from the main hotel at 26 Vendue Range. The room was small but had everything that we needed- we were out exploring the city most of the time anyway! The staff that we encountered were all extremely hospitable, especially the...

So first the obvious: Great location, Charleston French Quarter, historic building, yada yada yada. Doormen/Bellhop's are great. Knowledgable, animated, excited, good at their job. That's the good stuff. It goes down hill from there. Housekeeping is horrible. Your room is exactly as it was before they service it except the bed is made. Half empty Stabucks coffee cups, last nights...

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...
