Reviews for The Vendue
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 friendly hotels in Charleston where I would want to stay. This hotel was small....three small buildings on the same street. We were in the building across from the main building where you checked in and the restaurant and roof top bar are located. We did not mind being in this building as it was extremely quiet and they have an art reception there every evening from 4-5 with wine and appetizers. The art is fabulous and the food and wine was not bad either. I love art and it is plentiful in this hotel. I tried to view all of the art during my stay. It was a beautiful afternoon when we arrived so we went to the rooftop bar which had lovely views of the water and also the beautiful buildings of Charleston. I highly encourage everyone to take advantage of the bar. We also found all of the staff in the hotel friendly and helpful. It will be my hotel when I go to Charleston again. Finally, our room was furnished with lovely antiques and original art. I loved the exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and a working fireplace in our room.

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 fountain. Definitely take a walk around that park!! Location 5 stars. The hotel is really quaint and charming. Check-in was a breeze, the valet park and bell man was cool. We had a some sort of king room. My issue was that the room we stayed in was close to the parking lot and dumpster so we heard garbage trucks like clockwork every morning around 7am. I'm not a particularly light sleeper but it woke me every single morning, even Sunday. oh well, next time I'd definitely ask for a diff room on opposite side of hotel. Cute how they give you an actual key-key rather than a card. Decor was nice and different, bed was comfortable & room was large. Bathroom was spacious & nice, no issues. The only other not-so-great was the smell of the elevator and hallways, kinda musty. The Vendue can't do anything about that, the hotel is old, just something to expect if you do stay here. Overall, I would absolutely 100% stay here again... looking forward to it actually.

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 nice chat with one of the servers; very informative on the area.
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! Our next visit in Charleston we will be staying at the Vendue!

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 big mahogany sleigh bed and lots of exposed brickwork. The only thing that didn't suit me personally was the venetian blind wooden shutters on the windows which were no good at blocking any light out so made sleeping difficult. If like me, you like the room dark then this form of window covering at night isn't ideal. Our room overlooked an electricity substation which had bright lights on all night adding to the issue. The art on all the walls of the building is a nice quirky feature and we enjoyed the little touches like cookies and milk and we would've enjoyed the wine and cheese if we'd ever been in the hotel at the time, but we were too busy exploring. Very nice lady called Constance checked us in and remembered our name when we saw her again. Ed, Michael and the other bellman, who's name I forget were great with our baggage and with valet parking. The rooftop bar at the Vendue is very nice and again, friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed our meal in the Drawing Room restaurant although this is not a budget dining option. We did notice, as others have mentioned that there is quite a lot of voice carrying from other rooms and at times, depending where you were in the room you could hear conversations very clearly. However, this is a very old, historic building and it didn't bother us at all. I'm not sure others would say the same though if they heard our snoring. We'd definitely stay here again and Charleston itself is positively gorgeous.
