What People are saying

Great Experience at The Vendue

Christy Con 16/07/2017 02:03

We loved this hotel, all of the little details were much appreciated and made us feel special. The king room was a nice size, the bathroom was better than expected with a double-shower that was awesome. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Having the ability to have drinks downstairs in the Drawing room or upstairs on the roof felt like a luzury as well. I cannot say enough good things about the friendly staff and how welcome they always made us feel. I took advantage of a Travelzoo special that was running at the time we were travelling but even without the special rate and $25 credit for food or drinks each day of our stay, this hotel would have gotten all the same high ratings by me.

Pleasant but cold shower

Robert Don 11/07/2017 04:31

I enjoyed the Hotel. It is very close to parks, markets and great restaurants. I stayed 2 1/2 days and had 2 morning showers that were almost cold. Not lukewarm or tepid. Hotel staff offered to have the shower faucet checked. I should have taken them up on that offer.

Good choice

The hotel is located in the historic district and has a high class ambiance. The front desk and the concierge were very helpful. The bellmen were polite and efficient.
The wine tasting between 4-5 pm was fun and the hor d'ouerves changed daily.
Parking was a bit pricey at $22 per day but we never needed the car so at least we felt it was in a safe place.
The room was the highlight of the stay. It had a gas operated fireplace; beautifully furnished with a four poster bed; large bathroom and shower; and a decanter of sherry.
The only negative was the breakfast which was not very good and very expensive. With all the restaurants in the area I am sure we could have found better alternatives.

Just Don't

This is a long review so I will start in chronological order. The front door to the hotel does not close on its own. You have to pull/push it closed. Once inside you are greeted with the wretched smell of mildew. The entire lobby smells like something got wet and was never properly dried out. There are two desks at the reception area. The employees who work the reception area are either very rude and unhelpful or very nice. Our first interaction here was with a very rude woman, not what you expect at this price point to say the least. The key they give you is a real key, not a mag strip card, which does not seem very secure. Valet costs $22 per day and was pretty reliable. The bellmen/valets were actually the nicest and most professional workers on this property, especially the older black gentleman. After getting past the smelly lobby and rude reception desk worker, we proceeded to the elevator. It is slow. Very slow. There are only 3 floors that it travels to and it still takes forever. Sometimes the light on the button will go off but the doors won't open so you have to press it a few times to get on the elevator. Our room was on the second floor, which fortunately did not smell as horrible as the lobby. It was not without flaws however. Our room, #220, was down a narrow winding hall with a couple of small sets of stairs along the way. The carpet was frayed on the stairs to the point where holes had formed. At the end of the hall there was a door that led to a stairway. Rooms 220-223 are through this door and another door in that stairwell. The doors are very difficult to navigate since both open into the stairwell and there is very little room to stand when there is more than one person or when you have luggage. This property is not handicapped accessible in any way, so if that is important to you just move on to the next listing now. It is also important to point out that this stairwell that must be navigated through to reach the room cannot be used by guests to reach the lobby. We went down the stairwell on our way to the street only to end up in the restaurant's kitchen. This arrangement also makes the already hot stairwell you must pass through smell very strongly of whatever is being prepared in the kitchen, often seafood. The second floor hallways varied in temperature throughout the day/night ranging from comfortable to sweltering heat.

Once we arrived at the room we discovered that there was a small set of stairs inside that led up to the bathroom. This was strange but not an issue for us. The room had a USB charging station, an iHome for iPhone users, a television (about 42"), a chair, a dresser, and two night stands. There was a grey stain on one corner of our bed's sheets, right near where your head goes. The carpet had many stains that appeared to be caused by bleach. The view from the large windows was of the street in front of hotel, nothing spectacular, but no complaints there. There was no coffee maker, which was disappointing. The bathroom was nice, with two sinks and a nice shower. The water that came out of the tap (and shower) smelled disgusting. This is not a slight against the Vendue necessarily as everywhere we went in downtown had this disgusting smelling/tasting water. It tastes like the water had shellfish or seafood in it. Do yourself a favor and drink bottled water. You can bathe in it, but I would not recommend drinking or brushing your teeth with it. Blech.

On to the rest of the property... There is a coffee shop called the Press on site. It closes at 5:30pm. There is also a "restaurant" called the Drawing Room on site. The unoccupied tables had crumbs on them when we walked by. We did not eat there. These properties are connected to the lobby, but in the evening the staff puts up a gate in one section to keep people away from the hotel rooms I suppose. The bar area of the restaurant remains open to the hotel reception area. There is a rooftop bar which cannot be accessed via the main elevator but can be accessed on one of the hotel stairwells or by a separate elevator. Noise travels easily through doors and walls.

The first night the bed was turned down and chocolates left. They also filled the ice bucket which I thought was a nice touch. The next day housekeeping did not come until very late in the day and they did not fill the ice bucket at night. I went to get ice for our bottled water only to find that the ice machine on our floor was empty. I went up to the third floor but there is no ice machine there. There is only one ice machine for all three floors of rooms. A gentleman at the reception desk offered to send ice up to our room when I addressed the lack of ice with him. On the second morning we ordered room service. We ordered a breakfast plate and a plate of French toast. They called back to confirm the order minutes after we placed it but when it arrived the French toast was missing. There were two pieces of bacon that had been cooked as one piece and were fused together. Not the end of the world, but details matter. The soft drinks are not a can, just a small glass with ice. There is also a 20% gratuity added automatically to room service bill. The WiFi is abysmally slow and to top it off Verizon 4G had a hard time working in the room. The television had a sparse selection of channels (some in standard definition) and went out for several hours when it rained one day (satellite).

Overall, I would not stay at this hotel again. The pictures on the internet make it look pretty but up close the facade fades away. The white paint is full of smudges and grime. The carpet is worn. The hallways are hot and inconvenient to navigate. The lobby smells like a locker room that was flooded with swamp water. There is expensive modern art with multi-thousand dollar price tags hanging all over the walls but it can't make up for the lack of maintenance, poor attitude from select employees, and just general mismanagement that ruins this property's appeal. There wasn't one moment that made us decide that the review would be negative, it was the sum of things. There are too many hotels in this area to give your money to this one. Stay elsewhere.

Boutique hotel and art gallery

lucy021482on 10/07/2017 19:17

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vendue Inn, a unique boutique hotel. Not only was the staff extremely friendly and efficient, and our room was very spacious and well appointed, but the entire hotel is decorated with artwork (some from the artist in residence). In addition, the art pieces are changed on a regular basis so that each time you visit, there can be a completely new display. In fact, the hotel offers a daily 'gallery tour' ... complete with wine and snacks if you desire more detailed information about the art (much of which is also for sale).
