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 an 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.

Upon checking in no info given as to daily clean towels, removal of trash, etc. We also had to ask about WiFi password. Total lack of communication. If we didn’t ask, we didn’t get it. It also took 10-15 minutes to get hot water to take a shower

The staff was very attentive and polite. I do have one complaint though. When I asked at the front desk for directions to the Fort Sumter tour that leaves at 10:15am, I was told that Liberty Square was a short 5 to 10 minute walk and that all tours departed from Liberty Square. That walk turned into a 20 to 25 minute walk and upon arrival was told that the 10:15 tour left from Patriots Point and the next tour to leave from Liberty Square wasn't until 12:15. I wish the front desk attendant had taken the time to confirm the place & time of the tour.

Perfect location. Our room was by a door to outside , first floor and most would say noisy but we slept right through the noise. Very nice, clean. Very near all the things anyone would want to do downtown.

Moved our son to Charleston to begin a master program at MUSC. We plan on staying here at the Vendue on every visit to see him!! The rooftop was so beautiful at sunset, all the staff were so incredibly Southern (some of the friendliest folks ever) and the room was one of the best that we’ve stayed at in long time. I use Travelzoo a lot and plan on finding more of these gems!! Thank you so much. LindaMillikan
