Great service. Old noisy building.

Posted Feb 11, 2015
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: Better soundproofing? Not sure if that is possible
Location: Great location, minutes walk from King and Market Street. Plenty of great bars and restaurtants near the hotel. HUSK, SNOB, Gin Joint, Craftsman Bar.
This hotel has a great location and the staff is excellent. Also very nice little perks/services like Starbuck coffee in the a.m. and win/art reception in the afternoon, milk and cookies at night. Rooms are nice but the building is a bit noisy. You can hear all around your room, doors closing, people walking in the hallways, etc. It's no fault of the management but just be weary if you are sensitive to noises or don't want to hear that kind of stuff this might not be the hotel for you. It's just kind of an old building(s). Other than that, a great hotel. Staff was great, rooms were renovated, lobby was nice. Didn't eat or drink at the bar or restaurant because so close to other great places.

Staff is the highlight

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Great location on the water. Friendly staff. Great rooftop bar.
Cons: Windows sealed shut resulted in rooms that were damp and verging on smelly.
Every staff member at the Vendue was incredibly nice and accommodating. Location is great!However, the actual rooms were very small, stuffy and damp.

Superb location

Posted Feb 9, 2015
Pros: Location. Art. Food. Service. Bathrooms. And not in any particular order.
Cons: The best historic section of Charleston
Beautifully renovated historic buildings in a superb location. My recent two night stay was wonderful. The hotel is just steps from the waterfront pier right in the most historic section of the beautiful city. It is away from the most commercial sites but close to great restaurants. And the hotel is an art venue - a changing show is hung in the lobby and all of the halls. Excellent. The Venue is actually several buildings dating back nearly 300 years. The well decorated generous rooms have modern bathrooms as well as Southern charm. But the most outstanding feature is the staff. Everyone knew my name upon arrival and went the extra mile to make sure the room and service were perfect. Don't hesitate to order room service because it arrives quickly and comes from the excellent restaurant. Dinner after a long flight was a real treat - crab bilinis with caviar and creme fresh? How good is that? Top it off with a good coffee shop and free coffee - perfect. I will definitely enjoy this art filled treat again!

within walking distance of great bars/restaurants

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Everything!
The hotel staff was so kind and helpful and the rooms were so warm and comfy. It was my husbands birthday, so the hotel surprised us with a bottle of champagne. The concierge made reservations for us at a nearby restaurant and recommended several things for us to go see and do. We had a fabulous stay. We will be visiting The Vendue again!

Great location but needs a facelift

Posted Jan 10, 2015
Cons: Pictures should reflect actual room
When I booked the room, it was not clear that I was booking/paying for the older (non-renovated) section. All of the pictures showed the renovated section, which led me to believe that was the room I was getting.
