Awesome hotel, nice hotel staff, especially the front desk staff. Bed was a little uncomfortable. Staff at the rooftop bar were very rude. Great location within walking distance to most things.

Danielle, Thank you for the kind words about the majority of our staff. I'm sorry to hear you had a negative interaction with someone at the Rooftop as this is very much out of the ordinary. We are constantly working to improve the property and mattresses are on the list. I hope that you will come and visit with us again very soon. Kind regards, Tarleton McManus - Asst. General Manager

Staff were excellent friendly and efficient. We had on minor issue which was addressed immediately. I’ve stayed at many different hotels in Charleston over the years and I would rank The Vendue among the top choices.

Not convenient when you are checking into the property across the street. There should be a check in for each property, not just one. Very confusing not organized properly.

The check in with wine and an escort to your room explaining all of the amenities was great. The room was spacious and decorated in great taste. The sherry bottle for night caps was a great touch.
