We took an absolutely last second trip to Charleston last weekend for my birthday. Both of my normal hotel choices were booked or charging higher than reasonable rates, so I chanced it on Priceline for any 4-star hotels. The Vendue Inn was a pleasant surprise initially, as I knew it for the rooftop bar and great location near my favorite restaurants. However my reaction at our actual stay is so much better. The rooms were both great, as they upgraded for the second night. Each had exposed brick walls, weathered beams, and beautiful furniture. The charm was incredible and the beds were great. This staff blew me away in its level of service and professionalism. I've stayed at many St Regis, Ritz, and Four Seasons, but none were as attentive and pampering as this crew. They acted like a B & B, each somehow aware of our names and room number without asking. They provided coffee in the morning, complimentary wine at four, and then free milk and cookies at nine. They all had the feel and class of a Ritz-Carlton concierge, down to the valet or bellman. The first room was small, but truly charming. Our upgraded suite on the second night was undoubtedly a five star experience. This is a hidden gem in a great weekend town full of better touted hotels who don't work this hard at making you feel like a VIP guest.
