My wife and I made a last minute getaway, and I picked The Vendue after a couple of looks at Charleston websites.. The information available on the Vendue's website gives you a little better feel for the beautiful place, but it can't prepare you for the attributes that you will appreciate first hand. The management and service staff was the...

Our room was at the 26 Vendue (room 246). Everything was perfect to one small exception (see at the end of the review). Excellent valet parking, warm reception, helpful and extremely attentive staff. At the manager reception we were offered excellent wines (the red and white were equally good) accompanied with crakers, cheese and meats. The gentleman who helped us,...

Except for a problem with the bedding, which was supposed to be non down/feather, we found the Vendue very quaint and delightful. It was located where we could walk and stroll everywhere we wanted to go. Staff was excellent, and always helpful when needed. Afternoon wine and cheese was included everyday, and the artwork was really beautiful. The rooftop bar...

The Vendue is a delightful place to stay: excellent location, extremely attractive bar and restaurant, and most important of all, staffed by an exceptionally well-informed and helpful group of concierges. They went way beyond the call of duty, offering help and advice and following through (not just waiting for us to make a request). Ourbedroom (a signature King) was comfortable...

Just stayed for the first time at The Vendue and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is beautifully appointed as well as having a fabulous rooftop bar and coffee shop.

I usually book a national brand when traveling for business, but decided to take a chance and get some local flavor. I am glad I did. The hotel's decor fits right in with local flavor.

When we drove up to the door we thought we had chosen well. The exterior and the location were very appealing. But the impression was dashed when we walked inside. The reception staff was seated at two small tables with computers on them and they remained seated when we walked up to them. Not much Southern hospitality or courtesy there....
