A $4.8 million renovation transformed the Vendue into an art-filled space that feels as much like a contemporary art museum as it does a boutique hotel. Little evidence of this pair of 19th-century warehouses remains, but you will find white marble and hardwood floors, flowing chandeliers, and an eccentric collection of modern art curated by local gallery owner and artist Robert Lange, as well as a rotating artist-in-residence program. The modern feel spills into the well-regarded
Drawing Room restaurant and the accompanying coffee shop, the Press, as well as to the Rooftop, an adjoining double-terraced bar with soaring views of the city and harbor. Rooms maintain a classic style with exposed brick and four-poster beds.
