    Situated in the heart of historic Charleston, this inn offers charm and efficiency. The front desk and concierge were extremely friendly and very informative. The room was very comfortable and I especially liked the fact that the bathroom had two sinks. The location allows you to leave your car at the hotel and walk to attractions or restaurants. We spent... More

    Vendue is the definition of 5 star service and southern hospitality. General manager obviously knows how to hire and please guests. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. All staff extremely friendly. Happy hour art reception, turn down service, cookies and milk made our visit feel extra special. Loved art throughout hotel.

    We loved our two day stay at The Vendue. Our room was large and comfortable. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. The evening wine and art reception was lovely. We would highly recommend and look forward to staying here again.

    First, let me clarify that I did not stay at the hotel. I did, however, attempt to order a congratulatory treat be sent to a guest via the concierge -- as I was told by the person answering the phone it would have to be done that way. The concierge was evidently not available, so I left a message for... More

    I am regretfully writing my first Trip Advisor review. My fiancé and I stayed at The Vendue the weekend we got engaged. The hotel was beautiful, the valets were friendly and accommodating, and the food at the Drawing Room was wonderful.

    This was the perfect spot. From it's location just off of East Bay St. adjacent to the waterfront to the rooftop bar where you can view the sunset and enjoy some wine or a cocktail, this hotel had everything I like in a luxury inn.
