My boyfriend and I stayed at the Vendue Inn last summer and were so pleased with everything. We were welcomed with wine and service from the moment we stepped out of our car. The valet took over and we were care free. Our room was in the building across the street which was wonderful. The privacy was great. The food,... More

We stayed here in the older conversion 26 Vendue for 5 nights in an interior room on the 2nd floor. The room was small but perfectly adequate but if you stay in it for any length of time the lack of windows adds a prison cell like quality. The biggest defect presently is the lack of a proper restaurant. Charleston... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, steps from the waterfront and a short walk to the centre of town, shopping and the historic district. Staff are very helpful and the rooms are comfortable. We stayed on a ground floor room at 26 Vendue. and it was very, very noisy. You could hear the plumbing from upstairs every time someone... More

We were there from Colorado to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, made a long trek to get there expecting, due the Vendue's website that the renovations would be completed by the time we arrived, NOPE! We were put in the "old Anchorage" which I have stayed in when it was the Anchorage and it's ok but nothing special. Our room... More

As of the 4/14, hotel mgmt has still not addressed us nor refunded $ as stated. When I made res, I called & was told we would get one of their new rooms. This was not the case, which by itself wouldn’t have been an issue. When we got to our room, there was a mildewy smell- attributed to being... More

This is with out a doubt the place to stay in Charleston. Perfect location next to the water and all the best restaurants. The roof top bar is the best in town. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is amazing. You truly feel like family while your there.

Stayed here during Christmas season. We were in the annex across the street and that was a bit of a pain. Suggest stay in the main building. Room was good size though the furniture was a bit dated. Staff were helpful.

Web stayed at the Vendue this past weekend (April 2014). There are many advantages to staying here when visiting Charleston, and at the top of the list is the old maxim, "Location, location, location!" It truly cannot be beat for convenience and atmosphere. We did not use our car once in our 3 night stay. Service is also excellent at... More

Great hotel! Top location next to the best restaurants in the city and a block away from the water. The service is superb. Everyone at the hotel goes above and beyond. Lawson should get best staff member award!

We arrived very early (6am) having caught the train from New York but we were immediately made comfortable in the lounge with tea and coffee, with muffins, pastries and fresh fruit arriving at 7. After relaxing there for a while we went to explore Charleston before returning to check in properly. We were upgraded to a great room- enormous, comfortable... More
