We had a wonderful time. We wanted to pick a place where we could lay out by the pool and tan- and do it right in the city. Since this hotel has a roof top pool- what better place to do just that. The hotel room was pretty and spacious, as well as the bathroom- there was a separate shower... More

We love this hotel for a change of pace from the ultra modern décor offered by most high end chains these days. There is something about the lush furnishings, gleaming dark wood, antiques, art, and fresh flowers that evoke a feeling of calm and comfort the minute one enters the door. We were set to be there June 18th-20th, but... More

We live in Charleston and decided last minute to get a room downtown for a reunion. We spent the whole day at the roof top pool having drinks delivered to us, then headed to the downstairs bar for a great charcuterie plate while being entertained by Gerald, a manager, and our great bartender Andrew before we left for the reunion....

We stay downtime Charleston each year for our anniversary and this has been the best accommodation so far. The location is perfect to walk downtime. Request to stay on L4 so you can easily take advantage of the finger sandwiches at lunch and wine and cheese platters in the early evening. The rooftop pool was a must this year (temps... More

But that was the only negative thing we can say about this hotel. Everything else was fabulous, hence the terrific review. The location was terrific. Close to the market and close to all the top rated hotels. You wont see any hotel better than this. It is within walking distance from all the major attractions. The concierge is simply amazing....

We were trying to find the right place to stay in Charleston and someone suggested the Market Pavillion. After speaking with Kim and Suzanne at the Concierge desk, we decided that was the right choice (and it clearly proved to be a great hotel experience). Everyone was super friendly from Steve and Andrew who helped with our luggage (and so... More

Beautiful place in a perfect location. You can do no better in Charleston. Enjoy! You are right next door to the Charleston City Market (cool little local booths for shopping) and very close to a dozen excellent dining options. The rooftop pool is also amazingly beautiful with a great view of the harbor. Perfect for sunset.

My wife and daughter spent 3 days in Charleston during March of this year.
