We have been staying at the Market Pavilion since its inception. We stay at least once a year and always for our January birthdays! We do not stay anywhere else. We love being pampered and made to feel special on our special day. Special thanks to Austin in the concierge level and Andrew at the downstairs bar.

I stayed at this hotel over the Christmas holidays. As an early riser wanting coffee right away, I was very disappointed that the coffee/tea service was not available on my floor or to order from room service until 7:00 a.m. I asked for an electric tea kettle for the room, but none was available. When the service was set up... More

We stayed here in late December for 2 nights and really loved this hotel. Staff was helpful and professional from the valet and front desk to the maids. Top notch!

One of the great things about living here is being able to vacation and celebrate those special occasions close to home. We celebrated our anniversary here this month and even though the weather was lousy that day the experience was magical.

I met friends at the rooftop restaurant at Market Pavilion Hotel for lunch on a beautiful sunny day. It's a fabulous place for lunch with the great views of the City and the Bridge. Unfortunately I left my credit card when I walked out and went straight to the airport. Fortunately the Hotel did a great job of communicating with... More

We decided to splurge a little and stay in this hotel since it was our wedding anniversary. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are nice. You also can't beat the location - near amazing restaurants and within the charming historic district. I probably would have liked the hotel more were we not traveling with a toddler in tow...our...

Our room was beautiful, with a nice balcony overlooking East Bay Street. We went up to the rooftop bar to enjoy the view. Dinner at Grill 225 was great (see my review).

My wife and I enjoy rooftop bars in every city. Market Pavilion has a great rooftop bar. For Winter, there are dozens of heaters allowing you to sit close to the bar or far away in isolation. The staff were friendly and outgoing. There is a gorgeous rooftop pool that would be perfect during Summertime! Highly recommend this view!

The hotel is very elegant, the rooms are clean, spacious and nicely atmospheric. We really enjoyed the breakfast that is available on each floor (coffee, tea, juice, pastries and fruit) as well as the roof top bar and pool area. (It was too cold to swim, but it's a cool area.) The staff was helpful and friendly. What really made... More
