I visited Charleston, SC on Valentines' Day. We stayed with friends so we did not have the opportunity of staying in your gorgeous hotel, but had the opportunity to dine at the Grill 225 for dinner that evening and JB was our waiter. He was so gracious and kind and was on top of everything that we needed. Our dinner... More

What a great old hotel. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is wonderful, and very helpful. We only had drinks in the lobby bar, and didn't venture to the rooftop bar. It was a very nice, although it was too cold and rainy out for a trip to an outside bar. The pool on the rooftop looked nice. The... More

Market Pavilion is an amazing place. I can't say enough about the courteous staff, beginning with the greeting from Haven Turner, the wonderful bellmen, the front desk, concierge, the amazing pastries for breakfast, housekeeping, etc. If you want to be pampered this is your place. Thank you for such a nice stay, Market Pavilion!

Look you have lots of options in Charleston. I have stayed at many of them. This place is next to the market, walking distance to great places. In addition to this the roof top bar and the restaurant are tough to beat. Most of the good restaurants are on King in the town now so its a walk. But after... More

We stayed for a quick weekend trip. Immediately impressed at the level of service provided. Stayed on the concierge level and the lounge was wonderful, AJ was outstanding. Evening turn-down service was top-notch as were the cocktails at the rooftop bar. Dinner at Grill 225 was excellent as well. Hope to return soon. Amazed at the size of the bathroom... More

The hotel is lovely, we especially enjoyed our room. The water pressure in the shower is impressive, the robes are comfortable. We were especially impressed with the breakfast pastries and enjoyed the coffee service on our floor. Each of the members of the staff we encountered were enthusiastic, helpful, and pleasant.

Consistent staff that really cares, beautiful rooms, and a short walk to all that Charleston has to offer! Ending your day on the rooftop lounge, with a drink as the sun sets, says it all. We've stayed at most Charleston hotels, but this has been our first choice for years. Enjoy!
