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. 

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.

  • "On a clear evening this is the best place to start your night" -- Frommer's

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.

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.

Everything! This is one of the most delightful hotels we have ever visited. From the moment we stepped in we were greeted by Mark who offered us champagne! During our stay he greeted us by name & was helpful throughout our stay. We visited frequently with Toni, our concierge, who was enthusiastic & helpful. In fact, the entire staff was exceptional! I’m glad Travelzoo introduced us to this outstanding hotel. We are hoping to return to this beautiful city & our new favorite hotel!
