“Great Last Minute Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

A last minute reservation was made and I could not have been more pleased. In town for 3 nights for work. Hotels was right downtown in a great area in the middle of everything (20 mintue drive from the airport) The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The room was across the street from the Main Building and was very comfortable. It had a great layout it was a good value, very clean, great ammenities. Bellmen were a wealth of knowledge along with the office staff.
Roof top bar and dining was special...

We discoved this beautiful hotel in the French Quarter by looking at recommendation from trip advisor. We were very happy with our find. Great location, wonderful staff, most comfortable bed we ever slept on. My husband and I loved it. We have stayed in great hotels all over the world and the Vendu Inn competes with all of them. We had a wonderful breakfast in the morning and a great time in the rooftop bar with a friendly staff and exception music on a Thursday night. Unfortunately we were only here one night, next time will be longer and we will try dinner in their lovely restaurant. I am sure it will be awesome.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Crosby who took care of our bags and showed us to our room. We were impressed beyond measure with the standard of service from him as well as anybody else on staff we came in contact with. Everything about the whole hotel is charming! Our room was clean and very nicely decorated. The bed was incredibly comfortable. My husband and I came down for breakfast on one of the days we stayed, and they seated us in this cozy little nook right next to the window. Not only was the food great (I had bananas foster french toast!), but the atmosphere was perfect. I grabbed a bike from their complimentary rentals and my husband grabbed his longboard and we rode all over downtown Charleston. What a cute city! All in all a great city to visit and a GREAT hotel to stay in. We are definitely coming back!

Great stay at the Vendue Inn last week. Every detail was looked after and the amenities were fantastic. The bed was super comfortable! Highly recommend Carolinas for Dinner and a Charleston Sole Walking Tour. Both were fantastic. We can't wait to return!

We have stayed at the Vendue twice and there was a reason for coming back the second time. The hotel is old and charming, conveniently located and the service is 1st class. Expect it the moment the bellman greets you curbside. Comes with a great breakfast. The concierge contacted us a few days prior to the trip to make sure our plans were in order or if we needed assistance. Enjoy a glass of wine after your days activity. Book direct with the hotel for best results. Enjoy.

Our second time to the Vendue and once again, the accommodations and staff were outstanding! The Concierge recommended a local favorite restaurant (Cru - which was so perfect) prior to our arrival and made our reservation. He initiated the call and advised us it was Restaurant Week and therefore restaurants may well book up early. When we arrived, the Bellman remembered us from our previous visit and helped us in many ways.

As before, best bedding in any hotel ever to top off lovely rooms. Fun rooftop bar. And the perfect location for a weekend getaway. We were in walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Can't wait for our next visit.

Stayed one night in a very historic and comfortable hotel. The location was walking distance to our restaurant and local bars. The only thing I would recommend is to keep an eye on your billing information because I was charged twice and it took a couple of days for them to figure it out.

Room Tip: If you want quiet request a room away from the street.
