If instead of just going down to the basement to fetch a bottle of wine, she went down THE STAIRS to the basement to fetch the bottle, would you conjugate descendre with etre or avoir?
It would require avoir, because les escaliers are the direct object and descendre is used as a transitive verb.
J'ai descendu les escaliers à la cave.
That's how I would say it.
