As the hotel is at the corner of East Bay st. and Market st. , there is hardly a better location in Charleston. As you enter it almost looks like you are entering a high class restaurant, which you are as the hotel restaurant is, in fact, great. The hotel is, of course, a lot more. Large rooms with all...

The location is perfect, walk to everything. This is a grand old style hotel, but elegant in every way. The roof top pool and bar is a great place to view the surrounding area and enjoy a cool drink. We especially enjoyed our waitress, Jessica, who displayed Southern Hospitality at its best. The Market Pavilion is definitely on the top... More

I recently spent an evening at this hotel on a very enjoyable girls' getaway. The pros: - Central location - Conveniently served continental breakfast - Super comfortable beds - Nice, spacious bathrooms The rooftop deck is nice, but the pool is fairly tiny. We were pretty disappointed in the quality of the drinks -- expensive and pretty weak. I am... More

This hotel is dark inside (a lot of wood in the lobby) and was not quaint or southern feeling. However, the room was very spacious and clean and the location can't be beat. The rooftop bar and pool are also very cool and hopping on a Saturday night. The unfortunate thing about this hotel is the fact that the employees... More

We stay here as often as possible and they never disappoint. We checked in very late (2am) after a family wedding reception. The entire staff was as attentive and professional as they are when you arrive at a normal hour. The room was beautiful and very clean. I love the robe and slippers with turn down service. This is the... More

I am a platinum marriott member. After a sleepless night and 1 star customer service at a marriott property near King Street, I called the Market Pavilion and spoke with Grant. I explained my experience the previous night, and he assured me that I would be taken care of if I choose to move to the Market Pavilion. I took... More

This hotel was great. The concierge was very helpful, setting us up with tours and making restaurant recommendations. The bartenders were just OK as was the rooftop bar. The concierge floor was great. Just being able to grab a water before heading out was worth the extra money. Stay on this floor. The room was comfortable. We were given a... More

We were hoping to find a fun late night spot and our personal attendant made our night. I can't call him a waiter because he fulfilled our every need. Funny courteous personable good looking smart. Are only a few of the descriptors of this fine young man. We will definitely be back.

So much to love about the Market Pavilion. Central location, posh rooms, rooftop pool, calm in the heart of the busy downtown. We visited at the height of the summer season (stifling hot), and greatly appreciated returning to this sparkling and blessedly cool oasis every night. Yes, the decor and menu skews toward an older crowd (dark wood, marble, brass)... More
