Our first stay at this hotel will not be our last. Perfect location in downtown Charleston. Wonderful views from our room and the rooftop bar. Walking distance to most of the desired areas of Charleston for shopping, dining and sight seeing. Our room was lovely. Comfortable, elegant and quiet. The extra security of each floor having access only with a... More

My daughter and I had a magical time in Charlston. The Market Pavillion Hotel is located in a great part of town, walking distance to the best shopping and site seeing. The restaurant downstairs is one of the best in town and the rooftop bar has an incredible view of the city. The best part of our stay was the... More

We arrived on Friday and were very sad to leave on Sunday. The hotel is in a premium location, the service is friendly and impeccable; the concierges are very helpful, resourceful, and knowledgeable. We dined at the Grill 225 restaurant and the food was amazing. A real treat for foodies! You must try one of the many Nitrotini (a martini... More

Our company had an Area Operating Review at the Market Pavilion in early October. The room was first class where we held the business meetings and everyone who stayed at the Hotel said that the rooms and service were exceptional.

We stopped by for a cocktail at the rooftop bar and we were greeted by Dave the bartender. A great view from this area overlooking the Charleston Market. We will return and hopefully enjoy lunch or dinner and stay at this beautiful hotel with southern hospitality and charm.

There are many wonderful and laudatory comments about this establishment. Perhaps they are true depending on who you are. Several months ago my boyfriend and I wanted to take a long weekend trip to Charleston and splurge a bit. We had read that Market Pavilion Hotel was a gay friendly establishment. We elected to stay on the concierge level. Except... More
