About The Vendue, Charleston

Vibrant art hotel in the French Quarter with rooftop bar

Near Charleston Harbor

A 3-minute walk from Waterfront Park, The Vendue sits in the French Quarter of Charleston, 3 blocks from Dock Street Theatre. The colonial era St. Philip's Church is a 5-minute stroll, and you can drive to the renowned military college at the Citadel in 10 minutes.

Charleston City Market

East Bay Street is lined with restaurants and art galleries, and the nearby Confederate Museum and Old Slave Mart Museum provide a glimpse into local history. You can take a bay cruise to see Fort Sumter, and shop for local goods and crafts at Historic Charleston City Market.

Free daily wine reception

The Vendue is home to 2 restaurants, including The Rooftop which provides sunset cocktails with sweeping views of the city and Charleston Harbor. Each evening, you can enjoy free hors d'oeuvres and wine at the Manager's Reception while admiring the onsite art exhibits. A complimentary continental breakfast is also provided.

Warm fires, premium beds

The art show continues in the 84 guestrooms, decorated with antique-style dark wood furnishings and featuring feather beds with Egyptian cotton linens and duvets. After a day in town, you can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, and some rooms have working fireplaces.

The Vendue, Charleston
Wonderful stay, recommend highly!
Expensive but well worth it. Wonderful service from start to finish. We were told about and shown where the continental breakfast and wine and appetizer reception are held daily, how hotel guests can get to the Rooftop bar ahead of non-guests, live jazz in lounge, other amenities explained on arrival, housekeeping excellent and non-intrusive. Location is ideal.

Best Hotel in Charleston!!
Been to Charleston many times and this was our first stay at the Vendue. Amazing stay -- from upgraded room, attentive service, amenities, great location, to beautiful roof top bar. We can't wait to return!

The Vendue, Charleston
Great unique hotel in Charleston
The Vendue is a unique art hotel in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. Amazing location where one can walk to almost anything you’d like to visit: parks, shopping, food, etc. Friendly staff, nice continental breakfast, art in the rooms, great roof top bar, good happy hour, with milk and cookies plus location make this a fun stay. One note, interior rooms are nice and cozy, thankfully there was a sky light for some natural light in the morning.
