I booked the property for a business trip and brought two clients with me for 3 nights. The rooms are so small, hardly room to move around, no room to even put a computer for work. The first night my bedsheets were so rough I had to remake the bed to try to find a smooth spot. My clients not... More

We spent one night at the Vendue using one of the offers of their website. Our experience was nice, but not at the spectacular level described by other reviewers. Maybe it was the small room, maybe the non-existent view, maybe the free-up to-$15 dollars breakfast (which was not spelled out in the offer, instead it was "breakfast included") and the... More

The Vendue, located within steps of the Waterfront Park is an art lover's dream.The main building on one side of the street and another, smaller one on the opposite side, are filled with paintings and sculptures no matter where you look. There is an artist-in-residence and the evening we had dinner there, he did his work in the dining room.... More

The Vendue is fabulous! In the heart of the historic district and walking distance to great restaurants and shops. We stayed in the main building (where you check in). The room was large with fireplace and very nicely decorated. The public rooms are an eclectic mix of very tasteful "art gallery modern" and traditional. The hotel has been beautifully transformed...

The Vendue is a lovely combination of classic design and contemporary vibe, southern hospitality at its best, and a location central to Charleston's historic sites and foodie enclave that is hard to beat.

The location really could not be better it is in the historic district but is is within 200 feet of the harbor. It is about an eighth of a mile from the aquarium and the museum for fort Sumpter.

Great revitalized hotel that brings you to the heart of beautiful Historic Charleston. Taking a very creative and gorgeous intiative, this hotel moved away from the traditional Southern appearance and invited its visitors to view Charleston in a contemporary, manner with outstanding artwork, beautiful decor, and an amazing overall look in the two buildings.

I'll start with the location... it could not be any better. You are nestled right in the middle of amazing restaurants, historical buildings and amazing shops. Bring some walking shoes- it really is a great way to see the city. The hotel itself is in a beautiful old building that had been restored with the perfect amount of modern amenities-... More
