A very unique hotel right downtown Charleston. Every room is different and decorated with original art. The hotel is an art gallery on its own. The restaurants are excellent and the rooftop lounge offers excellent views of the city. A highly recommended hotel.

We had a great experience on our anniversary trip to Charleston. The Vendue provided a comfortable room with classy old style and modern amenities. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The Rooftop Bar was great and we enjoyed it on several nights given the weather. The Drawing Room provided a nice night cap venue. I highly recommend the Vendue.

The Vendue – 19 Vendue Range – A very cool and classy boutique hotel. They have an impressive art ‘gallery’ in the lobby that has 2-3 different exhibits a year. That alone is worth a visit by itself, but a more popular attraction for most is the rooftop bar. Voted ‘Best Rooftop Bar in Charleston’, it is actually two bars...

For those who loved the old Vendue and it's awesome happy hour in the cozy library, sorry, they now send you packing across the street for an unnecessary attempt to purchase art. Somebody's vision of a friendly get together at day's end. Pity. On the plus side, they still lend out bikes which is the best way to check out...

We had a great time in Charleston and partially it was due to our stay at The Vendue. The hotel is very conveniently located to places of interest, restaurants and historic sites. We walked everywhere! The rooms, the service, friendliness of the staff and an art-filled halls of the hotel, made our experience very special. I highly recommend this hotel....

The Vendue is a very nice hotel. It is also expensive as are all the hotels in that area. Many of the rooms are interior rooms without windows. They are very nicely decorated with original art work and updated bathrooms. We were without hot water for a day but they did try to make it right first by offering us...

The hotel is so unique and fun! Artwork everywhere and, actually it's an art gallery with a studio and artist on sight. Best reception and greeting I've had in a while. Every room is unique. We had dinner on our first night here because it was raining so we didn't want to go out. The restaurant had an amazing menu...

I found this property on TripAdvisor. My daughters and I enjoyed three nights here while visiting a nearby college. The hotel is beautiful with lots of wonderful art. The staff were all very nice and accommodating. They really wanted guests to enjoy the hotel and the city. One of the doormen was especially helpful in providing advice and directions. I...
