Stayed here for a little romantic getaway with my husband. Accommodations were spot on...just perfect! Ed the doorman was a ray of sunshine each time we approached the door! Staff friendly as can be. Bar was nice and rooftop bar has amazing views. Close to everything!

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. The bellmen are very alert and do an excellent job. I stayed at both of the hotels ( they are directly... More

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

There is also a very nice rooftop bar with views of the city. The room was very well appointed with nice furnishings. We had arrived just after the tropical... More

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.

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.
