Dear Peter, Thank you for such a lovely stay. I checked in on Tuesday, booked through the business office at my district, and extended my stay through Saturday personally for a weekend planned with my family. Originally, I had booked to move to the Spectator, and cancelled that reservation. Just writing to say how grateful I did. I love the... More

This is a perfect hotel for a visit to Charleston. The rooms are very elegant (and fairly large). The location is perfect to walk to nearly everything in Charleston. The roof top bar is excellent. The pool and the poolside service are also great- its a perfect spot to relax at the end of the day.

Charleston has a number of lovely hotels and great restaurants, but the Market Pavilion has, hands down, the best rooftop bar. Protected by transparent plastic sheeting, with heaters for the cool days. Lovely view all around. Small pool for those who want to show off. Only flaw is no hot coffee on the roof, so no Irish Coffee.

The rooftop bar is a great place for late-night drinks and dessert or a meal. Our dessert was great and the waitress was attentive. Even in January the rooftop bar was warm and busy and the views were great. We will definitely go back, hopefully in warmer weather.

We had a wonderful time last weekend at the Market Pavilion. It was a spur of the moment trip I decided to surprise my wife with. The reservation agent, Austin, was fantastic and was able to get us a room facing the harbor with a "Juliette" balcony. We loved it, stepping out in the morning for a hug and a... More

I enjoyed a long weekend in Charleston recently with my husband and in-laws. We returned to the Market Pavilion because our first experience there four years ago was so fantastic, we knew we'd return there the next time we'd go to Charleston. We stayed on the concierge level again which is just wonderful. The sense of camaraderie among guests on... More

Planned to stay only two nights but ended staying for four due to cancelled flights headed North. This hotel is perfectly located for everything...especially great restaurants. Blossom, Magnolia, SNOB, Amen etc etc. It was particularly perfect because the weather was bad. Staff was very accommodating, rooms comfortable and inviting, upstairs rooftop bar cozy, even in bad weather and the jazz... More

For out anniversary/birthday celebration we stayed at the Market Pavilion for 3 nights. The service was wonderful! We had concierge access on the 4th floor and it was worth the extra money! Hot breakfast each morning, champagne, beer or wine from 6-8 every evening. The room service was timely and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in a corner... More

Weekend get away with my wife. The hotel and staff are top notch! Love the continental breakfast on each floor for a lazy morning wake up. You are literally next door to the market. You can be at many restaurants within 10 minutes walking. The restaurant in the hotel is beautiful and I'm sure fantastic but was not on our... More

The wife and I in town again for business and we chose the Market Pavilion for a change up. Staff was great and I especially enjoyed taking to the bell staff. Good folks. We usually have to walk to the restaurants on East Bay Street but staying here offered all of the awesome restaurants closer to our room. Nice to... More
