I live in a city nearby and conduct business here frequently which often requires an overnight stay and rapid reservations. My "go to" hotel" was full so this opportunity arose. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and ammenities of the room. Very comfortable bed, beautiful linens, fabulous pillows and bathroom amenities. The restaurant 225 downstairs is fantastic as is...

When I lived in Charleston, the Rooftop Bar at the Market Pavilion Hotel was always a must when showing off my town to guests. I no longer live in Charleston but was visiting and made the required afternoon cocktail stop. As usual, the staff and view were amazing. Jr., the bartender was very pleasant and good natured. Upon arriving, everyone... More

This hotel was so perfect that it's difficult to know where to begin. A warm welcome from Steve on the door and the ladies in reception, a beautifully decorated and comfortable room looking over the market area and overall one of the most pleasant hotel stays in a long long time. Not cheap but offered excellent value for money. Fabulous... More

Traditional, very clean, "old school" hotel in excellent location. Rooftop pool/bar not quite as happening as I was expecting and as depicted in their website. There are also just a small number of lounges for hotel guests around the pool and no pool attendant to manage. This was a bit frustrating as for $450/night I should be able to have... More

Thank you for staying with us at the Market Pavilion Hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed our location and found the concierge to be helpful. I am not sure why you felt the décor needed updating as all the guest rooms have just been updated with new carpeting, new upholstery, freshly painted. I wish I would have known what things... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Market Pavilion Hotel in Charleston. This hotel is nice and located very conveniently to wonderful restaurants and the Market. It is within walking distance to carriage rides, Rainbow Row, and to Battery Park. The room we had was very nice and spacious. The rate we paid was a good value considering the... More

Back in my own bed and wish I wasn’t. How I’d rather be cocooning in my sumptuous king,’ with its plump pillows, European linens and duvet. The carved, wooden headboard is positively aristocratic. And I don’t have a ladies’ Maitland-Smith desk, nor do I have an efficient, Russian maid who places gold-embossed slippers on a towel! I had been sick... More

We stayed at the Market Pavillion for our vacation...based on it's 4-star rating and learning of the pool & bar/restaurant on the roof. While Charleston is a historic town... the Market Pavillion Hotel's decor appeared a bit out-dated for our taste. The furniture in the room was older, armoire doors were hard to close possibly due to the humidity (which... More

Beautiful surroundings, elegant linens, relaxing room decor and gracious staff--all resulted in a wonderful experience. I would suggest you stay on the concierge floor-- free breakfast, afternoon tea and a cocktails. The ambience was of the old south and is certainly lacking in most hotels today The rooftop bar, with a view of the city, should not Be missed. Food... More
