We stayed at The Vendue Inn in Charleston for nine nights and it was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had.
As soon as we arrived, we were given a tour of the ground floor and a brief history of the hotel and it's current amenities. This tour was given by Mark, who I can honestly say is the best bellman we have ever encountered.
The Vendue consists of two converted warehouses from the 1780's which gives it great history, but it has everything we needed in a modern boutique hotel. The Drawing Room is a very good restaurant, The Rooftop a great open air bar with a city view, and The Press a coffee house that serves Starbucks but with better service (and free coffee for guests every morning).
The front desk staff and housekeepers took great care of us, as did concierge Robbie (who arranged for an excellent dinner nearby for our anniversary).
The Vendue is within walking distance of EVERYTHING in Charleston's historic district as well the South Carolina Aquarium and the Fort Sumter museum. If you want to see magnificent homes, eat at great restaurants, learn about the good and bad of the area'a history, and walk to great local shopping, this is the place to stay.
Oh, forgot to mention the hotel is filled with great art and has a resident artist, and there is an excellent Belgian Gelato place right across the street.
Summary: no where better to stay in Charleston. Highly recommended!
