“Charleston in March = perfect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

A very cozy inn set in a perfect part of Charleston for exploring the city on foot. The complimentary bicycles also allowed us to venture out for more sightseeing along the waterfront and historic neighborhoods. Staff was friendly (especially breakfast service staff!) & helpful. The concierge - Robbie? - helped us make dinner reservations so that our first night in town was enjoyable. Our room was a bit small and loud on the first night (Saturday night, St. Patrick's Day), but we were expecting that. Great breakfast! Wonderful stay!

The Vendue, right at the Cooper River, is a quiet, very pleasant series of hotel residences built in a very historic bloc of former warehouses. We enjoyed the "old fashionedness" of its decor, the fascinating portraits around on the walls, the quiet (although we were on the street side), the attentiveness and helpfullness of the staff and the charming "manager's happy hour" where we met several very interesting other guests. A trip to the rooftop bar is a "must." Good music most night (although you can't hear it in the guest rooms), cold drinks and a great view of the City, especially at sunset. We were within walking distance of all the restaurants we wanted to eat at, all the sights we wanted to see and all the shopping I (the male) could stand. If you want to eat in the inn's restaurant, it is best to make reservation a day or so ahead. It is very popular! The fireplace in the room was a great place to share a quiet time together when it was nippy outside.

Room Tip: We had what would usually be a room I wouldn't choose (street side) but it surprised me by being...

My wife and I stayed here a few times last year. I have stayed at many of the hotels all over Charleston and this is my favorite. Very charming and historic. hardwood floors, big rooms, canopy beds, great breakfast...We got a great deal on priceline...we wouldn't pay full price to stay here. the location is also great

Couldn't have had a better time, such a sumptuous wonderful old inn! As long-time Charleston residents, we occasionally make a trip back "home" when we grow homesick for that gorgeous old city (the best kept vacation secret in the world!!!). Forget Savannah folks. Charleston is simply the most delightful destination you'll find! Don't miss the Vendue's wonderful breakfast, we had a perfectly situated table overlooking the strollers in the old market, oh sigh,,,, perhaps you can indeed, go home again. If you're looking for a beachfront experience as well, The TIdes at Folly Beach was in a word, fabulous!!!
