Charleston, South Carolina

  • World's Best
The Vendue hotel is a Charleston favorite — and a repeat winner of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards — for its exceptional art collection and bar-none service. Set within a pair of 18th-century warehouses in the French Quarter, the boutique hotel combines contemporary artwork with original architectural details in each of its 84 rooms. Take a tour of the collection with the hotel’s resident docent, and dine on artful cuisine in the restaurant, where the chef works fresh local ingredients into every dish. The rooftop terrace is one of the finest spots in all of Charleston for a sunset cocktail.
