Anniversary trip

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
We chose Charleston for our 45th Anniversary trip and decided to stay at the Vendue Inn. The food and drinks were gourmet, delicious and served in an elegant atmosphere. The focus of the Vendue is art so you feel like you are dining in an upscale gallery. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There was a little issue with the plumbing the first evening and we were immediately moved to a new room with an upgrade and also given a complimentary breakfast in the Drawing Room which was there main dining area. The Rooftop bar offered a panoramic view of Charleston. The hotel is located in the middle of all the action and near the waterfront. Love the memories that we made at the Vendue!

Wonderful staff, fantastic location

Would recommend Wed, Nov 18, 2015
The Vendue's main strengths are its location, its warm, friendly, helpful staff, and its offbeat but elegant style, art all over the walls, old fashioned furniture in the rooms, elegant public areas. Drawing Room restaurant: wonderful yoghurt, granola and berries. Press Room coffee house a great place to hang out and have a pastry or sandwich. My room was small but adequate, I am sure there are nicer pricier ones. Dim lighting for reading. Reception for wifi and TV, spotty, although I appreciated HD HBO, CNN, etc. It's by the harbor and East Bay Street's shops and restaurants and the gorgeous French quarter. Great stay.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

Would recommend Mon, Oct 19, 2015
From the moment we walked into The Vendue- the staff was fantastic. They took us on a tour of the hotel before taking us up to our room. Our room was perfect- a very comfortable king bed, a fire place and a huge bathroom. The staff made sure our room was always spotless and turn down service was always discrete.

Wonderful stay at Vendue

Would recommend Sun, Sep 27, 2015
The hotel did meet our expectations. However, the room had very little light and one small window. Trying to use the mirror in the bathroom was almost impossible and yes I should have said something sooner but we got in late and we did not want to change rooms. The SERVICE was excellent.

Wonderful Getaway

Would recommend Fri, Sep 25, 2015
The Vendue is a beautiful Inn, great location, comfortable room, and friendly staff. The room we stayed in, a signature queen, may be small to some, but to us it was wonderful. The rooftop bar is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery. We would definitely stay again.

Labor Day/Birthday Weekend

Would recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2015
Mark was terrific! From the second we arrived at the Vendue to the moment we left, Mark made my girlfriend and I feel like we were getting the Presidential Treatment. Nick at the front desk as well as Everyone made us feel like we were the most important people at the hotel and were so genuine and sincere. Customer service was above and beyond and this is easily now one of my favorite spots! Can't wait to stay again

Southern Comfort

Would recommend Tue, Sep 8, 2015
When you first arrive, you enter into a gallery of art. Every detail of the Vendue is a piece worth admiring from the paintings on the wall, to the furniture and the iron work. The King Street Suite was spacious and rustic. And then there's the food. The Vendue is a great choice for southern comfort in the French Quarter.

Romantic Getaway

Would recommend Wed, Aug 26, 2015
The Vendue is a wonderful intimate hotel where the staff is truly attentive when need be. The restaurant on property is outstanding. We stayed here for a romantic getaway and the staff was extremely courteous about giving us the privacy we wanted, but then assisting us when we wanted to do certain excursions. I highly recommend staying at the Vendue.
