My husband and I visited Charleston for my birthday and our anniversary. This hotel was more than we expected. We stayed on the concierge level. All staff was discreetly attentive, and we felt special and pampered. I will definitely stay here again. In fact, I did not want to leave.

We have had the great fortune to stay at the Market Pavilion several times since its opening. Each and every time continues to amaze. From the greeting at the door by the bellman, to the check-in desk staff you feel welcomed and begin to relax. The property is immaculate. The rooms are beautiful with high-end touches everywhere. Fresh flowers in... More

We didn't stay at this hotel but visited it on our stay in Charleston. The hotel is just beautiful and the employees very nice and helpful. We wanted to visit their rooftop Pool/Bar and Grill. We sat outside and had a great lunch and drinks while we enjoyed the view. They have delicious appetizers (we had the thin crust pizza's)... More

To give detail would not suffice. Incredible staff and property. Treated my wife with such respect.to the point bartender waited on my drink till my wife returned. Pool is amazing and rooms were incredible. Classy 30s and 40s music filled the lobby. If I had to make a recommendation.....and yes we had to think hard to find one.....the pool needed... More

So many compliments for this beautiful hotel gem. Though rather unprepossessing from the outside, with the first step upon entering the hotel, one is transported to a bygone era. Understated luxury and elegance everywhere: the wood paneled walls, the flooring, abundant flowers gracing every nook, pleasant staff, refreshments (water in beautiful crystal containers, fresh fruit, tea and coffee) at all...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Market Pavilion Hotel in June 2015. We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. From the minute we pulled up to the hotel we knew our stay was going to be special. I can not save enough kind words about the Staff. Everyone we met was friendly and accommodating. When we were brought... More

Excellent hotel & restaurant!! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Market Pavilion with friends last week. The service was outstanding & the rooms were spacious & beautifully decorated. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Charleston.

This hotel was fabulous. Service, amenities, location in the city were wonderful. Concierge level was so convenient and well done. Continental breakfast was very impressive. Easy city to navigate from this location. We were able to walk to shopping areas, restaurants and historical sites.

We just spent four days at the Market Pavilion Hotel celebrating a friend's birthday. The accommodations were excellent and the complimentary croissants and danish each morning were delicious. Our last night we dined at the hotel's Grill 225 restaurant. From the signature martinis to the Bananas Foster it was our best dining experience while in Charleston. John, our waiter, was... More

Over the course of six months, the service has tanked. We've stayed four times this year, and the Front Desk staff have become more rude and condescending at every stay. Travelling for business, WiFi was hit or miss; ability to print boarding pass non-existent. On our last visit, we incurred more grief. Contacted Management and were told they were in... More
