The Vendue Charleston's Art Hotel

Reviewed 25 July 2011

The Vendue Inn was an amazing find. It is ideally located less than a minute walk from the historic marketplace and two blocks from the waterfront. The staff was extremely courteous upon our arrival. The bellhop gave us a tour of the main lobby before escorting us to our room. He explained all the amenities the hotel offered, some of which were not even listed on the website. For instance, the hotel has bikes that you can borrow to ride around town, complimentary! Breakfast, a wine and cheese reception in the afternoon and cookies and milk at night were all included as well. We knew that breakfast was included but expected a small buffet like most other hotels in the area offer. To our delight, it was a full, sit-down breakfast! There were several options to choose from ranging from just eggs to biscuits and gravy complete with grits. The chef also offered a different special each morning. Everything that we tried was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive.

Our room was gorgeous. There were lots of neat little touches, like the sherry on the nightstand and the Charleston Chews on the pillow. Each night we received a card under our door with the weather for the next day, some trivia about Charlestown and information on things to do. The bed was as fluffy and soft as sleeping in a cloud. It was the most comfortable bed I have encountered in a hotel.

This is a great hotel. It is an amazing value and a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend staying here when you visit Charleston.

Room Tip: We called and asked if they would do a price match for a lower rate shown on travel websites. They d...

Stayed two nights at the Vendue Inn. Room was nice with a great bed, bathroom a little dated but how much time does one stay ina bathroom. Service was outstanding as was the breakfast. Rooftop bar is outstanding, great drinks, great view and a lot cooler than street level (it was 95 degrees during our stay). The staff couldn't have been nicer, and the milk and cookies served in the evening is a nice touch. Only negative is they allow pets and the dog in the room next to us barked for 30 minutes at 6:00 in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask not to be placed near a room w/ a dog.

Lovely older hotel with a lot of character. ...a lot of antiques. The location was ideal, being able to walk everywhere. Service was impeccable....got help with tour and restaurant...and, the doorman even called us by name every time we saw him. Our room was a King with Fireplace and was very nice. The hot breakfast was very good and we also attended the wine tasting from 4-5 p.m. with snacks included. Only a few things I didn't like which were very soft pillows (personal preference) and even though the bathroom was nice and updated, I didn't feel comfortable taking a shower. The tub was a claw foot, very high with only a shower curtain around the entire tub. Didn't feel very safe getting in or out. They are adamant about not smoking, but allow smoking in their rooftop lounge, even by the bar. I intend to take that up with them. Otherwise, just great.

Room Tip: Stay during the week if possible, Friday and Saturday really jump in price. King with fireplace is...

The Vendue Inn is an fantastic place to say! We stayed for two nights. The service is excellent. The room was very clean and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The room also had a whirlpool tub that was great after a day of exploring the city. The Inn also has a complimentary made to order breakfast. There are several items on the menu plus a special each morning. The location was perfect as well. It is just a block away from the waterfront park so you are near lots of sites. The staff at the Vendue are great! They are all very friendly and helpful. Most of them remembered our names. I highly recommend staying here.

Wonderfully located - you can walk to almost everything, or walk 1 block to the free trolley that go to most visitor destinations. Breakfast is included, and it was delicious, as were the free cookies in the evening, and nibbles in the afternoon. Staff were friendly, gracious, and extremely helpful. Rooms are beautifully appointed, and large. Can't think of a single negative. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to the Vendue.
