My husband and I visited The Vendue for our anniversary. It was beautifully decorated with a hint of modern touches throughout wrapped in all of the iconic fixtures of Charleston. The staff was top notch! They were kind, professional and attentive to all of your needs. My only suggestion would be to make sure that you know what size room... More

Our stay at the Vendue was lovely. We were in the renovated part of the hotel and our room was big, nicely appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was a nice surprise... a big shower with modern fixtures. But the best part of our visit was the staff - very friendly and intent on making our stay enjoyable. The concierge booked...

My mother and I drove into Charleston and I we were exiting I26 a torrential storm hit. Unfortunately the roads flooded with knee high deep waves and we had to seek higher ground in the parking lot of a post office. After the storm over, we called the Vendue and he sent a van (much higher of the ground than... More

Visited the Vendue for a quick couples getaway. We loved the hotel, and will definitely be back - in fact, we plan on eloping in Charleston in October and will be staying here again!! Anyone a fan of small botique hotels with personalized service will not be disappointed! You can't beat the location, and the rooftop bar is excellent. The... More

We have stayed at the Vendue over the past 15-20 years and have watched them grow. We previously stayed in what is now the coffee shop with windows right on the street. was very nice. Our most recent stay was in the older section but the room was, as usual, well appointed and comfortable. Family staying elsewhere were quite impressed... More

Looked great, comfy bed, but the room we had was right in front of the elevator and not at all soundproof. It was hard to get comfortable when you hear people constantly outside the door. The bellhop, Mark, was very friendly, and went out of his way to help us. Nice place, but next time, I'd request a room far... More

From the first phone call to The Vendue to the goodbye from the valet, this hotel was delightfully helpful, friendly, and refined. We chose to stay in the renovated section of the hotel, which houses the three dining options and local art by carefully chosen artists. The decor is both modern and traditional, and feels very genteel while still feeling... More

Really great hotel, the staff are all fantastic and make you feel like its your home. Stayed there for 5 days and even the current Mrs McGarry could not find fault with it and she is not easy to please. Food is very good and the whole ambience of the place is just so perfect.
