The Vendue is not just a hotel; it's a culturally enriching experience. Originally warehouses for storage, trade and auctions, the hotel has come a long way since its humble beginnings, reinventing itself with a $5.5 million renovation into a sanctuary for art lovers. It now comprises two lavish buildings across the street from one another, coming together as one high-end boutique hotel.

No two rooms are the same: Traditional guest rooms feature Egyptian cotton sheets and neutral beige tones, while some rooms are classically designed with four-poster beds, rustic hardwood floors and the original exposed brick walls. Signature rooms are decorated with reproduced antique furniture for a vintage feel, while the Premiere rooms offer more space and many have great views of the city. 

Sculptures and paintings line the walls of the lobby, eating areas and guest rooms. Pristine white-marble and dark hardwood floors flow into the Drawing Room restaurant, where the marble floors and the chocolate-colored wood bar are prominently featured against charcoal walls. 

Each morning, a free continental breakfast is served in the lobby lounge. All guests receive a complimentary daily reception with wine, and even milk and cookies in the evening. Guests also enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and use of the hotel's bicycles to explore the city.

Superior customer service, fantastic location, unique rooms, inviting lobby, attention to detail. Snacks, water and drinks are provided in the lobby through the day. That along with a friendly staff, artists, musicians and comfortable seating areas made the lobby a place to relax and visit, not just a place to pass through. The Roof Top Bar was a nice place to wind down and relax in the evenings. The rooms are comfortable and clean. A top-notch establishment.

THANK YOU Travel Zoo for introducing us to this amazing hotel. We had a wonderful experience from the time we checked in until we left. This hotel and staff know how attention to customer service can make a stay completely exceptional instead of just a routine hotel stay.

Yes, we did like the facility and the pleasant lobby and interesting things to do in the hotel as well as downtown. I just feel like we paid too much for the room while keeping in mind the discount from TravelZoo. Last year, our experience was so wonderful with our room and, in fact, in all aspects.
Other Comments
In a nutshell, we paid a substantial bill and our rug in our room was faded, torn, raveling, and had a hole in it right at the door. It was hard to feel elegant when that rug stared at you. Plus it took awhile to change a blown light in the bathroom. Delayed our showers and changing for the evening. You know, we just wanted it to be nice for our anniversary.
