I adored this hotel what a find, from the friendly valet to the artist on duty what an experience. I stay in a lot of places but what makes the Vendue special is the people that work there I never stayed at a hotel that 100% of the staff was on the same page. I also enjoyed how the guest...

We stumbled upon this hotel on an app and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the milk and cookies they served at night. If you stay here I recommend going to the cocktail hour in the art gallery. They served us complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres. Both of which were delicious. The hotel restaurant...

My son who's in Law School in Charleston took my wife and I here for a late lunch and afternoon cocktails. We got lucky and got a table up top... Fantastic venue and atmosphere. View was amazing... and it didn't hurt we had fantastic weather. Food was very good as well. Well worth your time!

I absolutely loved the Vendue Hotel. First, the location in the French Quarter was perfect for our visit to Charleston. In fact, we parked our car and walked everywhere all weekend. We also loved walking along the water which was right down the street from our hotel. This Vendue was not cheap. However, I discovered there really aren't any budget...

We stayed here over Charleston Wine + Food weekend, March 2-5. I absolutely LOVE the location, it's right near the water and the market. Really close to outstanding bars & restaurants (Paw Paw, Magnolias, The Gin Joint, the bakeshop, Kaminsky's, Savannah candy co) and right at the end of the street towards water is a gelato place and famous Pineapple...

Our room was very comfortable and cozy. The staff was helpful and always available to answer any questions, or to give us good suggestions on places to eat and sites to see. The hotel location was perfect; we did lots of walking checking out Charleston's beautiful city! We enjoyed the Rooftop Bar experience; very friendly staff. We had a very...

We had a wonderful first experience in Charleston at the Vendue. The entire staff was friendly, knowledgeable and eager to please. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable! The art displayed throughout the hotel is amazing. Grab a cocktail at the Drawing Room and go for a tour of the artwork on display around the hotel!...

We spent a lot of time trying to choose the right hotel in Charleston. There are a lot to choose from and many are very expensive. The Vendue is expensive but not too over the top. We had a Signature room in the annex at No 26 across the road from the main building. It was very charming with a...

I should have known from the start that my experience at this hotel would NOT be a good one... my mom and I were in Charleston for a mother-daughter trip and we stayed at The Vendue on our last 2 nights. We got to the hotel (which is incredibly hard to find if you aren't familiar with the streets of...

We had plans to attend a concert in Charleston and at the last minute decided to spend the night. I looked on priceline and booked an express deal that happened to be The Vendue. Wow! What a quaint, small, amenities packed place. We absolutely loved everything about it. Eric, our bellman who helped us get settled, was a wealth of...
