My husband and I stayed at the Vendue Inn for our anniversary and had the best time! We loved that this hotel was a "gallery hotel" - there was an abundance of art throughout the hotel some for sale and some a part of a permanent collection. Every night from 4-5 pm they have wine in the gallery and you... More

I'd highly recommend the town of Charleston and The Vendue. The food, history, land and feel, etc. in Charleston was great. The staff, accommodations, location, etc. of the Vendue were perfect! There are many restaurants/attractions close to this hotel.

Beautiful artwork on every wall, friendliest staff -- especially Chelsea! Champagne in the room, yummy robes / slippers, sherry at night to sip on before turning in, an amazing rooftop bar with awesome music, the MOST comfortable bed - EVER. What more could you want -- at an affordable price in the middle of everything?!! Don't pass up this opportunity!!... More

Had the chance to visit the rooftop grill. The food is absolutely wonderful. The choices are many and the sandwiches (yes, sandwiches) are something to write home about. I had a turkey sandwich & my colleague had a salad. Both were fresh and tasty. It's our new lunch place!

For well over a year, my daughter, now my son-in-law & I visited Charleston planning for their wedding on 4 Sept 16.

Great location & room, but the service lacked at what should have and could have been one of the best hotels Charleston. We arrived 15 minutes before check in opened and happily headed to the rooftop bar for drinks to wait, unfortunately the room wasn't ready for almost another hour and we were nearly late for an afternoon appointment.

We stayed in a premier king room, spacious, attractive and extremely comfortable. The bathroom is large with excellent amenities. The front desk staff was variable but ultimately responsive and helpful. There are a number of very nice personal touches, including the daily art tour and evening milk and (delicious) cookies. I can't give this hotel five stars simply because our... More
