“Great location...very warm and friendly staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012 via mobile

I booked the room for the Bridge Run weekend via hotels.com. We had low expectations, though the reviews we read were favorable. We were pleased to find out that the location was perfect for our pre-scheduled dining choices -- literally across the street from McCradys, Magnolia, and Cypress. This was great since both my wife and I had foot injuries and could appreciate a shorter hike. The room was small, dated, and simple. It had peeling wallpaper and a bathroom from the 70's. However, we really enjoyed our stay due primarily to the friendliness and warmth of the staff. From the bellman to the hostess for breakfast, everybody was hospitable and gregarious as though they really enjoyed their jobs. So, though the rooms were subpar, the people were Ritz-like! We do recommend this hotel.

Stayed March 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Vendue in mid-October for our anniversary. It was our second visit to the Vendue, this time staying in a King Suite that fronted East Bay on the ground level. The suite was pricey, though spacious. We were a bit disappointed with the appointments in the room, specifically the bathroom. Fixtures were old, the shower grout was molded, and the cabinetry cheap and in need of repair. Two colors of paint graced one of the cabinet doors. The bedroom was quite nice, The door from the hall opened into a foyer that featured a wet bar. This was a nice touch, but the bar was in the same old painted plywood style cabinetry as the bathroom, with a couple of glass shelves above. The space was dark and uninviting. This foyer had a lot of potential as a welcoming space, but did not live up to that expectation. The living room was very nice with huge windows and a large mirror. My only recommendation for this space would be repositioning the sofa (a tad worn) so that it faced the wall mounted TV, instead of having to turn one's head sideways to see it. Overall, we enjoyed our experience. As mentioned in other reviews, the location is superb and the Vendue Rooftop Bar is wonderful. Breakfast as the Vendue is included and delicious. I hope the management addresses so of the issues we have noted. We would like to return.

My wife and I stayed at the Vendue Inn during our stay in Charleston, and couldn't have been happier. The historic buildings have been renovated in a manner that preserves their character, while providing a wonderful place to stay. The beds are incredibly comfortable...wish I could sleep on one every night. The staff couldn't have more friendly and helpful, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place to stay for our first visit to South Carolina.

Room Tip: This place is spendy, but we bid for a 4 star on priceline and got it at a pretty good price, and it...

My Book Club planned this trip after reading "South of Broad"; the Vendue Inn was very comfortable. Hardwood floors, soft linens, jacuzzi tubs and a friendly, helpful staff made our stay pleasant and memorable. We also enjoyed the complimentary bicycles, the afternoon Happy Hour, and cookies and milk at 9 p.m. The rooftop bar was a popular place, with great drinks and a wonderful view of the city. We were able to walk to a riverfront park complete with bench swings, shopping, dining, and of course, the Battery. I will stay here again on my next trip to this beautiful city.

Room Tip: We had a suite with 2 Queen beds, a sitting area, gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub and separate shower. P...

A very cozy inn set in a perfect part of Charleston for exploring the city on foot. The complimentary bicycles also allowed us to venture out for more sightseeing along the waterfront and historic neighborhoods. Staff was friendly (especially breakfast service staff!) & helpful. The concierge - Robbie? - helped us make dinner reservations so that our first night in town was enjoyable. Our room was a bit small and loud on the first night (Saturday night, St. Patrick's Day), but we were expecting that. Great breakfast! Wonderful stay!
