Everything about our stay was perfect. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the building charming and full of beautiful art. The location was fantastic! The waterfront is less than 1/2 block away, and restaurants and galleries are in very close walking distance. We loved the roof top bar and restaurant. I had researched places for lunch, but after our...

Staying at The Vendue set the stage for a spectacular weekend in Charleston. Upon arrival the staff were the definition of Southern hospitality.

My husband has traveled all over the country in top hotels and rated the Vendue #1. The service was impeccable, everyone was helpful and friendly and the location couldn't have been better. The Drawing Room (restaurant in the hotel) was fabulous as was the rooftop bar. Great place to stay. Can't wait to return.
