“My New Favorite City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vendue Inn in Charleston, SC. The inn has the cozy feel of a bed and breakfast. Even before our arrival, we were contacted by the concierge with an offer to recommend restaurants and activities. The service was top notch from the moment we arrived and we could not have been made to feel more welcome.

This was our second stay at Vendue. It exceeded all of our expectations as it did the first time. The location is wonderful, so close to everything. The breakfast is made to order and delicious. The afternoon wine and cheese party is always a fun time to meet other Inn visitors. The concierge was very helpful. We have stayed in many places in downtown Charleston, this is always our favorite!

We loved our stay. Great for exploring the many places in Charleston. Also shopping and dining was great. The staff at the Inn was so friendly, from the housekeeping to the Inn keeper.
The Concierge service was exemplary. He could not have fulfilled all our requests any better than he did. The breakfas was great also

Room Tip: The corner suites are large and beautifully decoratged. Nice and sunny

After a 7 hour drive, check in was quick and responsive and our room was ready, it was a one bedroom king suite with a fire place and a beautiful bathroom with jacuzzi tub. The location is wonderful, close to shopping, reataurants, etc. The hospitality at the hotel was more than expected and as loyalty members we not only got a wonderful breakfast daily, we also got turn down service in the evening. The bellmen, servers, and all other staff we came in contact with seemed to really care and ensure your experience was a good one. My husband and I will go back to the Vendue on our next trip to S. Carolina.

The Venude is well located for walking, shopping, dining in Charleston. The rooms are typical of the period, but tend to be a bit from-frou for me. Breakfast is included if you join the loyalty program, and despite being neither a banana lover nor french toast lover, I yearn for the Banana Fosters French Toast - so good, but pass on the maple syrup, no need for that! Staff is warm and friendly, and it's fun to partake in the afternoon reception to meet other guests and enjoy the ample appetizers.

My wife and I have been waiting with anticipation to explore Charleston SC. We wanted to experience Charleston and its southern hospitality and charm. The Vendue Inn did it for us! Perfect location. Unbelievably friendly staff. We extended our stay because of them. We can not remember being treated better and any other hotel. Our room had an old world charm, complete with a fireplace and the most comfortable bed. We were in the Inn across the street which was very handy because public parking is right next door. Do not be nervous to drive to this Inn. It is very easy. Because you are right down town, everything is within walking distance. More restaurants than you can count. (My favorite was Pearlz Oyster Bar). The Vendue Inn offers a free breakfast, don't miss it, and a managers social hour of a free cocktail (excellent wine) and great hors d'oeuvres. We will never forget it!

Vendue Inn really surpassed our expectations by going out of their way to make our trip a memorable one. We received an upgrade when we arrived and everyone made sure we had all the information we needed to get around town. They have a nice included breakfast in the morning and bikes you can use to see the sights. Overall a very charming inn, great for a weekend away. I will definitely be revisiting. It is also close to a bunch of fantastic restaurants!
