We just spent 3 nights at MP. The room was large, lovely, and clean. Terrific service from housekeeping. We ate at the bar every night. Fabulous food and drinks. Loved our bartenders Camden and Cheryl-hardworking, professional, talented. Susanne the concierge was so helpful and accommodating. She worked to find a way to get us to Middleton Plantation, even though we... More

Market Pavillion is everything a 5 Star property demands. This formal elegant hotel is a delightful jewel in the Holy City of Charleston, SC Spacious and detailed rooms, views and vistas that must be seen over and over again, exceptional ambience from the rooftop pavillion to the main restaurant, all contribute to this must experience delight.

My husband and I had been to Charleston once before, staying in the French Quarter. The FC consistently gets rated on of the top 100 hotels in the world by Conde Nast and always receives high accolades from other magazines like Travel and Leisure. It was lovely. I wouldn’t say really “special”, but very nice. This time we thought we... More

I selected Market Pavilion for a special weekend with my husband. Our first stay, nice hotel, nice room, but we have stayed at places just as nice for a lot less in the Charleston area. We were expecting special consideration at the restaurants. We requested reservations at the main restaurant in the hotel. But nothing available. However, when we walked... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the MP Hotel in Charleston. It boasts a wonderful rooftop pool and bar and an award winning steakhouse. We wanted it to be special as we were celebrating my mother's birthday, so we booked a concierge level room. This entitled us to a good hot breakfast, drinks available all day, a tea in the... More

The hotel is "almost perfect". Foremost is the location. There seems to be a couple divisions within the town - shopping and/or dining. The Pavilion is in the center of many fine restaurants. Anything you want is only a few doors, or floors, away. The hotel itself is beautiful. The rooms while not huge are extremely well appointed, clean, and... More

We recently returned from a weekend getaway and our first stay at the Market Pavilion Hotel. We thought this hotel was elegant and nicely decorated. The level of service in all areas was excellent. Special note - if you can splurge, it is well worth it to stay on the 4th Floor Concierge Level. The privileges include breakfast, afternoon tea,... More

The rooftop bar is a must see and has a view that is unmatched anywhere in downtown Charleston. Dave, our bartender, was top notch - very attentive, friendly & made us feel very welcome. (Not to mention, he makes a great drink!)

Susanne was not only helpful, she was incredibly attentive and sensitive to my requests. There were 10,000 runners who had just finished a run in town, and it seemed that all of them were streaming past her desk at the elevator to get to the rooftop patio (or coming off in very "festive" moods). She was able to get me... More
