Staff was wonderful. Very accommodating and hospitable. The location is within walking distance to everything in downtown Charleston. Short drive to the beach too! The rooftop bar is awesome and the food was great! Will stay again.

My daughter chose this hotel for our 4 night stay in Charleston. Everything about it was perfect. The location was 1 block from Waterfront Park and E. Bay St. where great restaurants are located. The staff was very friendly, especially Mark, a doorman who remembered our names all week. Each time Mark saw us he greeted us by name, asked... More

Sadly this is the first time I've been disappointed by Tripadvisor and given a less-than-5-star review to a top-rated hotel. My wife and I usually rely on Tripadvisor to find cool and interesting hotels, and we are rarely disappointed. First, the positive: The Vendue is located right in the heart of Charleston, exactly where you want to stay no matter... More

Dear Chicago520, We sincerely regret that your recent stay at The Vendue did not meet your expectations nor our standards. We describe our guest rooms with location and appointments on our website with transparency in mind, as we understand that an exterior entrance may not be ideal for some. I do wish that we would have had the opportunity to... More

The hotel was nicely done and unique. All the restaurants and bars were great. Loved the art everywhere. Several of the staff were unnecessarily snooty however. These were the guys at check-in. Wait staff in the restaurants and bars were good and pleasant, as was the housekeeping staff and the bell-men.

This location was fantastic, right by waterfront park and a very short walk to the historic district and the city market. The hotel has a ton of art on the property (an art tour is available although we didn't take it), some of which is quite spectacular. Guests of the hotel get free Starbucks coffee and tea before 10am at... More

We heard great things about The Vendue and it lived up to our expectations! Before checking in, I had read a TripAdvisor room tip about not staying in a room with an external entrance. Sure enough, we were initially shown a room similar to one that we had been "warned" about. The room also smelled like smoke despite that it... More

We visited Charleston for a few days without much of a plan, and the Vendue was the perfect base for exploring the city. We felt we were treated very well by hotel staff and loved many of the features the hotel offered. We only dined at the hotel's restaurant the Drawing Room once for breakfast, and while pricey for breakfast,... More

Lovely comfortable rooms in the historic style. Dark wood floors, lots of art on the walls, resident artist. Breakfast has to be paid extra (rather have the price included) - walking distance to places. Staff on front desk really helpful and friendly. A younger male member of staff across the road from the main hotel not that attentive though seemed... More

I booked the hotel on Priceline, so I fully expected to be relegated to basement or something, which would have been fine because I was really booking Vendue for the central location. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the room. Actually, that's an understatement - we were amazed. We had a fireplace, a two-person shower, a TV in... More
