Great location, and you pay for it.

Great location, but the King Suite was overpriced at $400/night. Perfect location and walkable to the river, shopping and dining. If I were to stay here again, I'd book the cheapest room.

Excellent Staff, but beware of Construction

First off I cannot say enough good things about the staff, they were the definition of excellent customer service. Great location for downtown Charleston. Within walling distance of restaurants and historical sights. The only issue was the construction! As someone who has overseen hotel renovations and improvements this was unacceptable. The worker's started at 6 to 6:30am, and it was loud (jack hammering, hammer drills, and sledge hammers pounding). I understand the need for completing projects, but this was ridiculous. I would stay again, but would wait until construction is done.

Great location, fair rooms

Room was small but comfortable. Bathroom was very nice, but low pressure and inconsistent temperature in the shower. I would look elsewhere if you plan to spend any significant amount of time in your room not asleep. Basically paying for the location.

Great Location and Staff

The staff made the difference in our 2nd anniversary trip. The front desk manager was always eager to give us all the inside info on what to do and where to dine. We went as a tattoo convention was wrapping up and we got to enjoy the very end of that. I met the dance troop Pilobolus, at the hotel's indoor pool, and they gave us free tickets to their sold out show which was an added bonus to our wonderful trip. The room was quaint, but the bed was very comfortable. The complimentary food was also wonderful.

Comfortable Inn in Downtown Charleston

We had a very pleasant stay at the Vendue Inn. The staff were very welcoming, and the room and amenities very comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance of many Charleston sights and excellent restaurants.

Vendue

Very nice boutique hotel. Very charming, Location is very good, close to the water and within walking distance to all points in the Charleston downtown area. The staff was excellent, very attentive to our needs and very friendly. Always a smile and a kind word. Our only disapointment was that there was no mention on their web site that the hotel was undergoing extensive renovation and the roof top rest./ lounge is closed and we were housed across the street.
