My boyfriend and I stayed at the Vendue Inn last summer and were so pleased with everything. We were welcomed with wine and service from the moment we stepped out of our car. The valet took over and we were care free. Our room was in the building across the street which was wonderful. The privacy was great. The food, the gallery and wine receptions each afternoon, milk and cookies in the evenings, and the rooftop bar all made our stay awesome. We will return!

We stayed here in the older conversion 26 Vendue for 5 nights in an interior room on the 2nd floor.
The room was small but perfectly adequate but if you stay in it for any length of time the lack of windows adds a prison cell like quality. The biggest defect presently is the lack of a proper restaurant. Charleston is a foody town where the good restaurants get booked early for popular time of the evening i.e. between 7 & 8.30 so on the night of arrival eating can be difficult. The hotel advises the recently opened rooftop bar opposite. The food offerings there are very restricted & more of a tapas variety although of good quality.
A nice idea is the provision of free wine and canapés between 4 & 5. Perhaps one hour too early.
Breakfast which is free consists of juice, fruit & varying cakes with Starbucks but has to be eaten in arm chairs unless one of 3 small tables are available. Not ideal
The site is ideal, close to the river & the sites & the staff excellent but management need to rethink
these issues or at least warn guests of the deficiencies at present.

Room Tip: Avoid interior rooms especially on ground (1st) floor near reception

The hotel is in an excellent location, steps from the waterfront and a short walk to the centre of town, shopping and the historic district. Staff are very helpful and the rooms are comfortable.

We stayed on a ground floor room at 26 Vendue. and it was very, very noisy. You could hear the plumbing from upstairs every time someone turned on a tap or flushed the toilet, and the doors are thin with no seal at all. You can hear every word spoken in the hallways.

Afternoon wine and the coffee, tea, water and night-time milk and cookies were a nice touch. It was unfortunate that the bar and restaurant were closed for renovations but there are many good choices within steps of the hotel.

We were there from Colorado to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, made a long trek to get there expecting, due the Vendue's website that the renovations would be completed by the time we arrived, NOPE! We were put in the "old Anchorage" which I have stayed in when it was the Anchorage and it's ok but nothing special. Our room was crazy small, no outside window which we were aware of when we booked but very poor lighting, some lights didn't work, felt claustaphobic. Staff was friendly and location great but next time I'd stay at the Harbor View in which I've stayed at before. Feel like we were duped on what we paid for and what we got, certainly was NOT The Vendue, very disappointed!

As of the 4/14, hotel mgmt has still not addressed us nor refunded $ as stated. When I made res, I called & was told we would get one of their new rooms. This was not the case, which by itself wouldn’t have been an issue. When we got to our room, there was a mildewy smell- attributed to being an older room. When we tried to use the shower, there was no hot H2O. We called the front desk, and Alex came up to verify. He called us in 10 mins to tell us that there was a tripped breaker & that we’d have H2O immed. We did not have H2O immed., or 10, or 20 mins later. We called again & while he was kind-he certainly didn't do anything to help. We had to ask to be moved-which they begrudgingly did. When moved, we were told that we would have to move in the am-which was unreal. Wasn't checking into a room w/o hot H2O inconvenient enough? Mgmt was nice to leave a bottle of wine & chocolates but we just wanted hot H2O. Both subsequent rooms had issues-the 1st room only had 1 bath towel-there were 2 of us registered-in addition to bulbs burned out & a raised board in the bathroom & the 2nd room had bulbs out & a leaky hot water handle on the sink. As if this wasn't enough, housekeeping is VERY loud in the am. They were yelling at 8 am in the hall both mornings we were there. While Alex & Lawson tried to be helpful, & the hotel had an amazing location, we won't be returning to this hotel -EVER. I hope they will make good on their word.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere...
