The concierge. Lady was so nice too. We booked at the Grill for dinner and she thought to ask if there was a special occasion. My husband's birthday... More

My husband and I stayed at the Market Pavilion Hotel for a wedding. We were part of a wedding party and had access to the gold floor: breakfast, afternoon tea, and evening drinks. The hotel took excellent care of us and the other members of the wedding party staying there. The room and bathroom were elegant and cleaned well everyday.... More

I read many reviews about where to stay in Charleston and location as well as price seemed to be the principle factors in play. There were only a handful ranked higher; however they were either located off the beaten path or very expensive. This hotel is as good as any an perfectly located in historic Charleston off East Bay by... More

We were in town visiting the grandparents and decided to spend an adult evening downtown. We picked Market Pavilion and are glad we did! We arrived early to find our room ready (a surprise during busy spring break) and a free upgrade! We were on the concierge level with free breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails. The parlor was beautifully... More

I surprised my husband with a one night stay in Charleston and chose this hotel based on location. We were thrilled with the location, the room and the rooftop bar. We received an upgrade for his birthday and that was a treat as well. The hotel is older so may not have all the new "bells and whistles" but it... More

We had a wonderful time and it was all worth it. The staff was one of the best I have ever seen at a hotel. The rooms were big and comfortable and they pamper you well. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.

I booked our trip to Charleston with the intention of showing my husband the Charleston area, so we stayed our first two nights at a B & B and planned to spend two nights on the beach at Isle of Palms. After checking in to Isle of Palms, we realized we wanted to spend our last night in Charleston. While... More

When arriving, be careful of the small loading/unloading area immediately in front of the hotel. The staff was easily able to accommodate us by parking the care and bringing everything to the room. Standard rooms are right for families with teen children. Fortunately, there are large bathroom spaces. The bar and restaurant are quite nice- creative drink menu. Would stay... More
