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. 

From the press:
  • "An art-filled space that feels as much like a contemporary art museum as it does a boutique hotel" -- Fodor's
  • "On a clear evening this is the best place to start your night" -- Frommer's

This is our favorite special occasion hotel. As we were celebrating my birthday, this was the place to do it. Staff surprised me with champagne in our room when we returned from dinner. New complimentary continental breakfast was spectacular! As was Revival the newly opened dining room

Need a stronger water pressure in rooms. Also, one of the buildings does not have an elevator to some rooms. For folks like me with physical conditions it was very difficult. As part of the booking process, it would be good to know about this situation and maybe highlight that when booking a room.
