After searching Charleston hotels online, I booked a room at The Vendue for my husband's 50th birthday weekend. To put my review in perspective, I did book the cheapest room they had ($250/night). It was like staying in your uncles 70's basement den that he's thrown a squeaky old bed into for your stay. No windows to the outside. No...

We stayed at the Vendue over Thanksgiving. It was completely full and yet the service was truly outstanding. From the doormen to the folks at the front desk, every individual we dealt with was excellent. Our room was on the first floor of 26 Vendue and it was beautifully appointed. We also had the Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant. Once...

We stayed here on a Saturday night in July. We were in Vendue 26 (right across the street) in a King room, with a window.
