Overview

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 to become 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 feature great views of the city. 

More than 300 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, while the rooftop bar "attracts visitors and locals alike for its open-air patios and multi-tiered vistas" and was named one of the "10 Best Rooftop Bars" in Charleston by Condé Nast Traveler in 2020. 

Complimentary coffee and individually packaged pastries are available in the lobby each morning. All guests receive a complimentary daily glass of wine, and cookies in the evening. Guests also enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and use of the hotel's bicycles to explore the city.

There are many wonderful things about the Vendue. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The lounge area around the bar was elegant and comfortable. We loved the free wine for guests from 4-5 pm, and enjoyed the morning fresh muffin and evening cookies. We also loved the artwork throughout the hotel lobby area. However, our room was somewhat of a disappointment, although it filled the bill in the most critical areas ....the bed was extremely comfortable, the shower was spacious and had wonderful water pressure, and the two room chairs were quite comfortable. The reason for our disappointment was that the room looked nothing like the photo used to describe the luxury king room online. The room have been freshly painted, which meant that all the luxurious looking wallpaper had been taken down and the walls were just drab beige. The photo of the room online showed a floor to ceiling window with beautiful drapes. We had two small windows with very plain drapes, and we looked out over another Hotel’s ugly rooftop. Ambience in a room means a lot to me, and the hotel’s efforts to make the rooms more contemporary was not appreciated. Coming to Charleston, and staying at the Vendue, who’s online photos of the bedrooms made the rooms look like there would be Old World charm, was very misleading.

If the hotel was great, it would be a great place, because everything else was terrific. The restaurant in the hotel called the Revival is definitely a 5 Star. Get the Grouper!

The hotel is just old and their best efforts can't change that. There are two parts and one of them is across the street and if you want coffee in the morning one has to get dressed cross the street, well you get my point. Make sure you stay in the main old building.

This is truly a beautiful setting! For anyone who loves historical buildings that have gone through considerable renovations, but respecting the value of history and its ambiance - you will love the old world charm of this hotel complex/2 buildings on a charming street borders a waterfront park! As well, the artwork displayed in abundance throughout the hotel buildings is fabulous! Ranging from highly contemporary to more traditional, in watercolors, acrylic, oil, and so the list goes on! The staff cannot be more accommodating to their guests! Although we do frequent other hotels in Charleston - The Vendue is our favorite! And based on its ratings, as well as their restaurant “Revival”/don’t miss its fine dining! Their TripAdvisor rating is well justified!!
