We chose the Vendue to stay in after our wedding based on all of the reviews here at Tripadvisor, and because it's more of a boutique hotel (smaller size, distinct atmosphere). We reserved a Standard King, but got upgraded to a Junior Suite. This had a huge comfy bed, a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. Everything was very well-appointed, with the expected elegant, historical Charleston charm. Service was speedy, efficient and thoughtful -- bonus points for letting my husband check in early (he had to get to our wedding, after all!). Also, when his cab arrived to take him to the wedding venue, the driver just waited outside without coming in, and the reception guessed whose cab it was and called the room to let him know it was there.
When we arrived after the wedding, still all dressed up, it felt sort of magical to step into this beautiful and quiet place right by Waterfront Park. And again in the morning when we were escorted to a pretty, sun-lit parlor for our delicious Southern breakfast.
I wish we'd had more time to enjoy everything else the Vendue had to offer. I grew up in Charleston and never had any reason to stay in one of the fancy downtown hotels. As far as I'm concerned, this is now the only place I'd want to stay!
