Thanks Jackie!

If you’re looking for southern hospitality or historic Charleston charm, the Vendu is not for you. If you’re looking for a concierge or even a front desk, keep looking. We found staff pleasant but not effective. There was zero info available about Charleston or knowledgeable advice for visitors. The Vendu is heavy on glitz but short on hospitality.

Linda, thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share your feedback. We apologize if you felt we fell short on the Hospitality side. As you can probably see from other reviews, that is not representative of our standards and we hope to have another chance to impress you. Best Regards,

Chose that hotel because of the artwork throughout. It's lovely, not too large. The staff was wonderful. It's very old so if you need something very modern this is definitely not the hotel for you. It's in the middle of the French Quarter and within easy walking distance of the Market and numerous restaurants and art galleries.

Tried to check out at 3:45 am. Taxi on time. NO STAFF available to check out even though I was assured there would be. Very upsetting and ended our visit on a down note!
