Reviews for The Vendue
Very historic with modern touches. Parking is close by but you don't really need a car to take advantage of great restaurents. Breakfast in the morning was fine but didn't change very much from day to day. Evening wine was nice as well but again the same wine was served several days in a row. Due to the historic nature of the hotel the rooms were on the small size but suitable for our purposes. Our bathroom was large and functioned well. The hotel was very clean and the people very nice. Turndown service was not consistent.

Today is our wedding anniversary! The Vendue Hotel welcomed us as family with a glass of champagne upon arrival and a historical tour of the hotel (ask for Mark! Heâ€™s awesome.) The Vendue is a historic building from the late 1700s with old charm but with modern renovations (including a walk-in shower.) We checked in on St Pattyâ€™s Day and got a free room upgrade for wearing a ridiculously large green bow tie. Everything you want is within a half mile (the ocean is across the street) so you can walk off all the fantastic food nearby. They offer a free continental breakfast from 7-1am, wine and cheese from 4-5pm, and home made cookies and milk from 9-10pm. The rooftop bar is picturesque. They have an artist in residence that you can ask him questions and view his work. And did I mention there is a decanter of complimentary Sherry in the room thatâ€™s refilled daily? Stay at the Vendue and feel like your family.

The Vendue is a very neat place and they have a fairly eclectic art collection at any given time from various local and national artist. The room that I stayed in was very tidy and comfortable albeit small. The main lobby and breakfast area were always being cleaned by staff when I was in those locations which I found to be very strange, but I guess comforting to know that they keep the place very clean. All in all I would recommend the Vendu. Itâ€™s a very boutique hotel and the location is perfect.

My husband and I stayed at the Vendue for our 2nd time in early March 2018. + Our room was located in the building across the street from the main lobby/restaurant. We had a first floor room and noticed off the bat the amount of art throughout the first floor. Our bellman mentioned that there was an art exhibit on the floor and there was a happy hour on Fridays. No big deal, we thought that was cool. +On Friday, March 2nd- t was FOUR HOURS of constant foot traffic, loud laughing, clapping and constant chatter. We had been out all day and wanted to nap before dinner but after 3 hours we gave up. We left for dinner at 9:30 and there were still groups of people in the hallways and lobby drinking and hanging out. Totally unacceptable for a hotel that has guestrooms that share the same floor and walls as the art exhibit. Keep to one hour, respect your guests need for peace and quiet. + On Saturday, March 3rd we were not told of any events in our building so we thought we were in the clear. NOPE. At 5pm - the music started. Yes, music. Apparently it was yet another event. Luckily we had abandoned any hope of getting rest at this hotel so we just left to grab cocktails before our dinner. + On Saturday, March 3rd we went to get late drinks and came back to the hotel well after midnight. We swiped our key only to walk in and find two men passed out in the lobby. I'm attaching photos. They were PASSED OUT. No security around, nothing. I was with my husband but if I'd be alone or with another woman, that would be really unnerving. + The room we noticed after a day began to smell or feel sort of musty. Nothing really offensive, but we noticed that after a long day of walking around in the crisp air, coming into our room was kind of stifling. + The breakfast buffet at the main building was a nice touch, as it wasn't available last year. Unfortunately, it's a little bit clunky for guests staying across the street to take things back to their room. May want to consider setting up separate buffets. + Upon checking out, I spoke with two women at the front desk. They seemed aware of both the evening art events and the drunk men. The reason I was given was due to the Food & Wine festival that weekend. While I understand it's a busy weekend full of drinking, a hotel like the Vendue should be more prepared and better staffed during that weekend. Sadly, we will not be returning to the Vendue after this experience. Such a shame b/c we had a lovely stay last year (the same weekend) and they have an excellent location, but while they brand themselves as an Art hotel, we found they were more of a boozy party hotel. It seemed they were more concerned with hosting art events outside guest rooms than making sure their guests were able to relax in peace.

This was our third visit to the Vendue Inn. It continues to have great customer service and is an outstanding accommodation. Because it was my birthday they gave me a bottle of champagne. They also gave us one of the art suites which was beautiful. The breakfast is very nice for a continental breakfast and the happy hour amongst the artwork is tastefully done. We highly recommend the Vendue Inn!
