“Another great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Spent a couple of days over our anniversary in Charleston. We were given a room across the street from the main inn. The room was beautiful, although no view to speak of. We had a fireplce, whirlpool tub, king bed...it was great!! Sherry on the dresser for the evening... The Inn also provides a wine and cheese hour from 4-5pm, with more than just cheese and crackers, It was very nice. We were close to many restraunts and bars...close to the river, walking distance to many historic sights.

This hotel is one of the nicest experiences we've had recently. It is "old world charm" and a European style in the heart of the South. They bent over backward to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Wine and horsdeurves in the early evening, warm cookies before bedtime. A charming elegance with no stuffy overtones.

This hotel was really great from beginning to end. The beds were really comfortable - like sleeping in a cloud - so probably not good for those who like firm beds.
We had room 150, on the first floor and enjoyed it very much. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. We didn't go for the milk and cookies but we did do the wine and cheese one night and that was good too. It was fun to chat with other guests.

Everything is within walking distance for downtown Historical Charleston at this location so no need to take a taxi. We had a rental car and parked it for a few days in a nearby garage.

Room Tip: TIP: if you don't like sot beds, see if they have rooms with firmer beds. Also you can hear the...

Great downtown location. Pricey but with free bikes a full breakfast, evening wine hour and bedtime cookies and milk thrown in-it is almost worth it.Creaky wooden floors and the hotel decor remind you that you are in Charleston which isn't a bad thing. The staff is very friendly but that seems to be true of every hotel. shop and tour guide in the area. If you want to splurge go ahead and choose this hotel. If you are on budget- there are some other choices downtown that are very good.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms in advance if you want some space. We were in a smallish size room with a very s...

This hotel is a lovely stop in a beautiful town. Check inn and valet was easy and the room was beautiful with a fireplace and a bed so high you needed steps to help you up !!!! Breakfast was cooked to order and very tasty. Well worth the price for the serenity and the evening cookies !

We took our first family trip with our new baby (4 months old) and were able to fit her Pack-N-Play comfortably in a Standard room. We enjoyed the morning tea and coffee, the evening milk & cookies, but never had a chance to try the wine & cheese service. We loved the decor of the building and the service of the staff. The bathroom was quite large and I enjoyed a bubble bath with the bath salts provided. Quite relaxing. My only complaint was the fire alarm which went off once each night we were there (around 10pm) when one of the other guests admitted to taking a long steamy shower. The alarm's sensitivity is both commendable and lamentable, but my heavy-sleeper didn't even notice it!

Vendue's website says it is a pet friendly hotel, as does Tripadvisor. We made our plans to bring our small dog based on this. However, when I went to the site to book the room...once you get into the "fine print", the only room that is actually pet friendly is the King Suite. Quite a sneaky way for them to push their more expensive rooms.
