I came to visit Charleston with my friends and family. The hotel staff was so friendly. We stayed on the concierge level and had the pleasure of meeting Harris who had many good recommendations on activities and restaurants. We also visited the Pavilion Bar, and the view was absolutely amazing. This will definitely be our place of choice on our... More

We recently went to Charleston for a couples getaway. After a disastrous night in a VRBO rental with no AC, we treated ourselves to two nights at a nice hotel. We were greeted by Steve, whom I believe now to be the world's most accommodating bellman. We had four bicycles that he found a spot for and agreed to help... More

We decided at number 99 to go down to Charleston for 3 nights and honestly it was worth it. What a great town, if you are considering going please do so and try get in at the Market Pavilion. The town and the hotel left us with a sense of joy. Words can not describe how good the service was... More

The location was ideal, just across the street from the Charleston Market. The staff were top notch. The room was luxurious and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. Our stay met all our expectations - which were high considering that we typically do not splurge on hotels in this prices range. It was definitely worth every bit of the expense.

We had a great experience at this hotel in July. The hotel was in a great location and all of the staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was more than expected. The only negative was the view from our room (ours overlooked the parking garage), but the view from the rooftop bar made up for it.

Came down to Charleston to propose to my fiance on a romantic weekend getaway. I informed the hotel prior to arrival to have roses and champagne in the room and they did not disappoint. The lobby bar is great - the bartenders are knowledgeable and love to make liquid nitrogen martinis (be sure to have one!). The rooftop bar offers... More

This hotel is one of the most aesthetically pleasing that I've stayed at in Charleston, SC. It has beautiful artwork and flowers in the lobby area, which contains a small bar and the hotel's restaurant. I had the chance of visiting the bar, which had excellent service and drinks. The Pavilion bar on the rooftop was also nice, but a... More

I found the hotel to be in a great location in the heart of downtown Charleston. The staff was helpful and the room was fantastic. I do want to note three things. The valet garage fee was ridiculous at $50 per night. I was also underwhelmed by the hotel restaurant but that may be because it was a Thanksgiving Buffet.... More

I've been to Charleston more times than I can count. It's my happy place. And, although I have a go-to favorite (hi, Indigo Inn!), I've stayed at a lot of different properties to keep visits interesting. But, since 2005 when my mom & I had first visited its oh-so-fabulous rooftop bar, and every time we passed it since and viewed... More

Just back from a quick summer retreat at the Market Pavilion hotel with my husband and 9 year old daughter. This is our second visit and I have to say it ticks all our boxes. For our daughter the small rooftop pool was the perfect break from the heat and most of the time she had it to herself. We... More
