“Suite Hospitality 5 Star Performance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

This was our 1st visit to Charleston & celebrating our 39 th anniversary so I wanted everything to have a "special" moment. Well this is First class treatment from the moment we where greeted at the foyer by Mark to the entire staff who welcomed us to their establishment. A great location, both quiet side street less than a block to the beautiful waterfront park.
Everyday we where greeted by name and the complimentary breakfast was perfect to reflection. Our server everyday was Rebecca and she made sure the coffee, fresh squeezed juice and fruit was served promptly and with a smile.
Robbie is a well informed concierge who made suggestions and rservations that showed both his knowledge & local high quality tours. If you want a 5-star experience your search is over

We recently stayed overnight at the Vendue Inn after attending an event at their rooftop bar. What an amazing stay! The hotel itself holds so much of what Charleston is known for - historic southern charm and true hospitality. The rooms were a great size with traditional southern furnishings, fireplace and even a taste of sherry on each mantle.

The location was perfect! Once we valeted the car, we walked to several locations nearby including restaurants, bars, and the fab shopping on King Street.

I cannot finish this review without saying what a huge impact the manager at the Vendue Inn made. Suzy Ridder is one-of-a-kind and welcomes everyone with open arms to her establishment. She understands how important it is to be comfortable and makes sure each and every person feels at home. She makes this hotel unique!

The staff at Vendue Inn is topnotch! Everyone is extremely friendly, the epitomy of Southern hospitality! The Inn has many wonderful special touches, from a personal note on your bed upon arrival, to lemon and orange waters in caraffe's outside the library. Complimentary made to order breakfast, where they address you by Mr. and Mrs. xxxx, to wine and cheese at 4pm, and cookies and milk at night. Extraordinary! The location is fantastic for gettting to the market and the harbor. The downside? It is a bit noisy, so we thought several times someone was trying to open the door to our room. The one time we tried to use the concierge, he failed to find a reservation to the restaurant where we wanted to dine. We walked over to the restaurant to get a reservation for a different night, only to find we could be immediately seated! All in all, in it was wonderful stay, and I look forward to returning to Charleston. Visit the Magnolia Plantation when you go. You won't be sorry!

I cannot recommend this place enough! My husband and I stayed here in January during a ridiculously cold long weekend :( However, it was not a problem at all! We stayed in the Junior Suite across the street from the main building. Our room was amazing. We walked in to a King size bed (the most comfortable one I've ever slept in), fire place, complimentary sherry, bathroom with shower and separate jacuzzi! We felt so spoiled by everyone. Our days began with an amazing breakfast cooked to order, an evening complimentary happy hour and appetizers, and to put the icing on the cake of our stay, every night we were spoiled with delicious warm chocolate chip cookies and milk....mmmm..... I miss it already! Allow me to share with you the hospitality that is displayed at this hotel: My husband had a terrible case of food poisoning from shellfish (not from the hotel), so we called the front desk to get the number for the nearest hospital, needless to say, the man at the front desk ( I am so sad I can't remember his name, but he working at 2 am when we were rushing to hospital.) He was so kind to run to the parking garage, in 20 degree weather, to get our car and help us to it! I can truly say that we had a truly wonderful experience staying at the Vendue Inn (aside from my husband's food poisoning :O( Everyone was so nice, and helpful, our room was splendid, and all the amenities were such a nice touch!

Room Tip: If you can splurge, I highly recommend the Junior Suite!

This Inn in downtown Charleston is very charming with great service. They accommodated a bachelorette party very well! The sit down breakfast that's included has a great menu and wonderful staff to take care of you. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The beds were very very comfy!

The only cons were that the reception area and lobby were very small...each hallway had a few stairs so if you are rolling heavy luggage you have to lug it up or down a couple steps...I guess just let the bellman struggle with that! The rooms were very clean and pretty but need a little tlc and revamping in the bathrooms. Nothing big but some tile looked worn or damaged. I think they are renovating starting with the suites first.

One minor thing is their TV had limited channels with no music channels! Not a big deal since you won't be staying in the building long because there is so much to do and see in Charleston. But I love some tunes to listen to while getting ready.

Nice and great service but a bit steep in price.
