A girlfriend and I stayed at 19 Vendue for 3 nights of great restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. The location was prefect for early morning walks, touring all day and dining late into the night. The hotel had a fireplace, sherry in the room, chocolates with the turndown service and was very comfortable! I highly recommend it.

Perfect location, beautiful setting. The complimentary bikes, morning coffee and wine hour added daily pleasantries. The rooftop bar was a nice stop before heading out for dinner and there's plenty of art to gawk at while strolling about. The one complaint I do have is the room service/cleaning practices. The room was exquisite when we arrived but if you plan... More

I loved everything about this hotel. First of all, you can't beat the location. It's right downtown, and walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. It's also right down the street from a lovely ocean front park, which is great for early morning jogs, evening strolls, picnic, etc. My husband and I stayed in the smaller building across the...

A boutique hotel with a built-in art gallery? I wish all hotels were as lovely. We stayed here at a friend's recommendation and weren't disappointed. Great service, good wifi, small but charming rooms. We didn't get to use the rooftop bar due to rain, but will definitely be back.

Absolutely one the best hotel staffs, accommodations, and locations of any hotel I have ever experienced. My wife and I had never been to Charleston before and decided to go to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Actually, we picked 5 cities we had never been to and I got to surprise her with the final destination. Charleston was definitely the... More

A good fun place to stay in Charleston. Strategically oriented, you can walk to many restaurants, shopping areas and great neighborhoods. Some rooms do not have windows so we asked for a window room and were quite pleased. Good service, a good restaurant and art, art, art are their mainstays. We will return

We stayed at The Vendue Inn last week and after years of staying other places in Charleston, I can't imagine a better spot. From the amazing facilities (room, roof-top bar, dining room) to its stellar location blocks from the waterfront and walkable to everywhere, its fabulous staff who go beyond to provide a superior customer service, this place will NOT...

This hotel has the best customer service of any hotel I have visited. Great location in historic district. The attention by the hotel staff was outstanding. We highly recommend staying at this hotel and would not consider another hotel if we return to Charleston. You won't be disappointed!

Beware the room descriptions for this hotel. Our room assignment was way below the quality implied and described online for the price paid. Lots of noise from adjacent hall, stairway and very loud ice machine. Not much wriggle room, though the bath was nice. It met the letter of the description - yes, luxury sheets; yes, fireplace; yes, antiques -... More

This hotel really sells itself dishonestly. The hotel is actually two different properties across the street from one another. The main building is new and renovated and is mainly what is shown on the website. The second property (which is where we ended up) is a "refurbished" but not really renovated collection of old buildings. The rooms were really shocking.... More
