The Vendome, formally known as The Vendome Hotel, was built in 1872 on Dartmouth Street. This building was called by its owners “one of the most palatial and most elaborately furnished hotels in the world,” a claim backed up by five dining rooms and a 320-seat mirrored banquet hall. This was the first public building in Boston to have electric lighting. It had an independent lighting plant designed by Thomas Edison in 1882. Edison himself supervised the installation of an electrical system that ran lights and a passenger elevator. In 1880 the hotel expanded onto Commonwealth Avenue. By the late 1960s the Vendome was sold to a developer who converted the hotel into condominiums.

The Vendome is located at the intersection of Commonwealth and Dartmouth Avenues, just two blocks from Copley Square. This historic building features 24 hour security & concierge services, onsite superintendent, professional management, common laundry, and is pet friendly. Units feature 11 ft high ceilings, 8 ft high solid doors, lavish double crown molding, classic columns, and lustrous walls. Front facing units boast beautiful tree lined views of the Commonwealth Mall.
