My husband and I recently stayed at the Vendue in April for two nights. We were told we would have a nice room that had been recently updated. Upon our arrival we were taken by the bellman to a room where we had to navigate narrow hallways, traverse a small stairway and finally to our room. It was like a maze to get there. Expecting a room that could lend to romance and relaxation, we found a HUGE emblem of the U.S. Department of the Navy right above our bed and Navy details in the room decor. We have nothing against the Navy, my father proudly served in the Navy, but we were not visiting Charleston for a military parade. We promptly requested a room change, and after some searching (1/2 hour of surveying the "only" two available rooms - which were both smaller), the management found us a MUCH nicer room on the first floor overlooking the street. That initial haggling over the room was unfortunate and left us initially feeling uncomfortable, especially given the price point for the hotel. Other than that fiasco, the hotel is wonderfully located right in the heart of downtown. It is only a few buildings away from the waterfront and a large fountain. The staff were attentive and very polite. the hotel has a nice dining area and bar downstairs as well as a big bar upstairs with an upbeat nightlife. Our visit was quite pleasant, but I would recommend that you ask about the room before booking. I also would recommend the Vendue at 19 Vendue Range vs. the other part of the hotel across the street. That building seemed dated and stuffy.
