“Historic and First Class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We have always enjoyed staying at the Vendue Inn in Charleston, but our recent visit was the best ever! As a very historic property, the Vendue had had a few quirks and bumpy spots. But apparently, they have been through quite a renovation. Our junior king suite was absolutely gorgeous, with 10-foot ceilings, ornate mouldings, and sumptuous fabrics. Our bathroom was huge, with a modern glass shower and a claw-foot tub. The price included a breakfast that was just exquisite. I highly recommend! What a getaway! the staff was so welcoming and friendly.

This was our second time staying at the Vendue Inn and both experiences were exceptional and contributed greatly to the overall enjoyment of our trip. The staff is genuinely friendly and attentive, the accommodations are pleasant and comfortable and the little touches, like cookies and milk at 9:00 p.m. or the reception at 4:00 are lovely breathers and give you a chance to interact with other guests. It's location in Charleston is perfect for walking about this charming city. We will definitely stay there again.

Spent 5 days at the Vendue Inn last week and had a marvelous experience, from the Concierge calling me before the trip to see if he could help to an accommodating staff that put us in a requested room. The amenities were great: the wine and cheese hour and especially the cookies and milk at bedtime were a big hit. Sign up for their loyalty plan on the website ( free) and you get free breakfast which was excellent. The hotel is centrally located and easy walking distance to most of downtown Charleston. We skipped the rent car and had no issues. Would highly recommend the hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask the staff - they will try to accommodate you!

This was my third stay at the Vendue Inn. The King Suite is perfect for a special occasion. As pictures reveal, exposed brick interior walls, fire place, very large and well appointed bath. Quiet, historic charm. Staff always goes above and beyond. Above average wine reception and breakfast. Location is perfect; walk to anything all trip.

Thanksgiving week was our 4th trip to Charleston, and our 4th stay at the Vendue. A great stay every time. Although we had a minor problem with our room, it was made right. After we had checked out and were eating lunch a Magnolias, i realized that i had left my phone in the room. A phone call by my wife, the phone was found. After lunch a shot walk back to the Vendue and Suzi greeted us outside to say goodbye. Its nice to be treated like family! As others have said, location, breakfast, bikes, wine and cheese, milk and cookies, and great service! What else is there? Thanks again. Richard & Sandra

My daughters and I just returned from our 1st visit to Charleston, and were completely charmed! The Vendue Inn was a huge factor in our wonderful stay. Perfectly situated for easy walking to the waterfront, the Market - all shopping - best restaurants. From my pre arrival phone call requesting a suite with 2 queens - to saying our goodbyes - This property was perfect! Our Jr Suite was absolutely georgeous, the breakfast delicious, and our dinner at the Library outstanding and special. My daughters loved their bike ride to take photographs - we trampled each other to "not miss" the evening milk and cookies, and enjoyed the wine and nibble time and chatting with Chef Jude. I have stayed in many lovely hotels - but as always -it comes down to the staff - The Vendue warm and gracious staff made us feel like royalty - each and every single one. I have already begun plotting my next visit - but this time with my hubby!

Room Tip: We had a corner suite - Historic - beautiful #104 -
