Huge room. Fireplace. Complimentary decanter of cream sherry. Delicious food. Fun bar. Cookies and milk in the lobby at night. A coffee shop onsite. A great location in the French Quarter. And cool, interesting art on display everywhere. Can you find anything not to like? I can't!

I have stayed at this hotel on multiple trips to Charleston prior to moving to this wonderful city and this is hands down my favorite hotel. Staff and service is impeccable. But the best part of this hotel is the artist in residence and the nightly art gallery viewing with complementary wine! :)

The Vendue is touted as an art hotel and it is certainly filled with many beautiful and interesting pieces. The location, at the corner of East Bay Street and Vendue Range can't be beat. Lovely pier at the end of Vendue Range and connected to a beautiful walk along the water. I was disappointed with my "Premier King" room, it...

The staff is amazing, polite, attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are good size, well appointed, very clean, with delicious linens. Perfect location in French quarter, I give this hotel my top recommendation. My husband and will be returning there. Also, their lobby bar is fun at night as is their rooftop bar!

The Vendue is an Excellent boutique hotel, across from the water and within walking distance from everything in Downtown Charleston. The room was beautiful, bed was comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful. Loved the Starbucks and the beautiful artwork. We have found our home away from home at The Vendue.

I surprised my husband with a 3 night stay at the Vendue Art Hotel for his 56th birthday!! My difficult goal is to be brief in describing an EXCEPTIONAL hotel and experience. FIRST, thing you’re aware of is that the hotel is in a prime location, 5-10 minutes’ walk to everything, The French Quarters, The Market, Restaurants, shopping). The second...

We did not stay at the inn (which looks wonderful), but I met colleagues for a rootop lunch. The food is excellent--not your normal lunch fare. I had a delicious turkey sandwich; my colleagues has salads and burgers. Everyone was happy! Highly recommend!

We just spent 3 nights at the Vendue. We enjoyed it very much. The hotel's location is great; in the heart of the historic French Quarter and easy walking distance from great shopping, dining, city parks and historic homes. Be prepared: the hotel itself is housed in a series of now-connected, centuries-old converted warehouse buildings, so the rooms are small,...

This hotel has an excellent location right next to the waterfront park and a helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are a bit small and very modern. The art on display is also fun to discover and if you can go up to the roof top bar for a drink and view of the city. We had an "inside" room...
