“It Just Doesn't Get Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

We recently enjoyed an extended stay at the Vendue and would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel. The staff is top-notch and a real testament to the good management of Susie Ridder and her assitant, Jerry Kerwin. The chefs and kitchen staff turn out terrific food every day, from breakfast through the daily reception to dinner. The hotel is sparkly clean and the gentlemen at the front door are always friendly. The administrative staff is efficient and very accommodating. The hotel's location near Waterfront Park is ideal for pet owners. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: Many are undergoing top to bottom renovations.

Great location in the middle of it all. We parked our car and didn't need it again for three days. Wonderful breakfasts. Small but very clean rooms. Don't forget comfy walking shoes for the cobbled streets.

We usually stay at more traditional bed and breakfasts but decided to give the Inn a shot. It was truly outstanding. Great location in the middle of everything in Charleston, the friendliest staff I have ever seen from top to bottom, great room, great breakfast, good happy hour and the cookies and milk were a nice treat at night. Great gelato shop across the street also. We would highly recommend the Vendue Inn. Not cheap, but worth it.

We recently stayed at the Vendue Inn in Charleston. In terms of location you couldn't ask for anything better. It was walking distance to the Market, the battery, King street shopping, restaurants and bars. A wonderful location for people who need a good central location. The building is well kept but the room is starting to look a little rough around the edges. However, the bed was very comfortable with high-end linens and lots of fluffy pillows. The fireplace in the room really cranks! There was coffee and tea available in the lobby each morning. Bikes are available to guests for use. The Rooftop Bar is a great place for a drink before you start your evening. The staff needs a little polish. One night we asked for reservations to the Library restaurant and were told we didn't need them...just walk in. That was a problem when the restaurant was booked and couldn't seat us. There were a couple other moments of miscommunication that resulted in vacation time wasted. However, the people were never rude...just not paying attention to detail. They also need to work out a better plan for seating people at breakfast...there was a wait to be seated. If you are flexible, earlier is better. Overall, a lovely experience. I would go back.

Room Tip: The building across the street has no elevator...if you can't climb stairs make that clear durin...

The Vendue Inn is where you want to be if you seek an experience back into the history of Charleston, S.C. It is located near Waterfront Park in the heart of the French Quarter, within walking distance or pedicab of the many historical attractions. The rooms are tastefully done with large comfortable king poster beds. The staff to a man was helpful, and displayed the classic Southern hopitality and charm. They meet every request quickly and completely. The complimentary Southern breakfast was outstanding with many choices now just waffles heated by your steam iron.

Room Tip: each room is different and the one we stayed in is slated for an update, the only drawback was lack...
