My wife picked out this hotel. What a great choice. Everything about this hotel was first rate: location, service, people, and facilities. The $50 food and beverage voucher also was a pleasant bonus. We would absolutely go back to this hotel.

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at this hotel. We especially felt welcomed by the front door staff and the men who helped with our bags, coming and going. The location is excellent--we were in walking distance to all of the nicest dining locations! We enjoyed all aspects of our room, as well. It was very clean, the bed was... More

We spent 3 nights here while visiting Charleston for a brief vacation. The location is perfect to walk throughout the downtown area. It is next to the large Market and surrounded by tons of shops and restaurants. The room was pleasant and clean and included coffee/tea, pasteries and fruit set up on each floor in the mornings, which was nice.... More

Husband and I originally chose a hotel farther from center of town but changed in order to be closer to Old Town Charleston. The hotel was superb. Every staff person we came in contact with provided outstanding service. The pastries at breakfast are made on site and melt in your mouth. The location of the hotel is right by the... More

I visited Charleston, SC on Valentines' Day. We stayed with friends so we did not have the opportunity of staying in your gorgeous hotel, but had the opportunity to dine at the Grill 225 for dinner that evening and JB was our waiter. He was so gracious and kind and was on top of everything that we needed. Our dinner... More

What a great old hotel. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is wonderful, and very helpful. We only had drinks in the lobby bar, and didn't venture to the rooftop bar. It was a very nice, although it was too cold and rainy out for a trip to an outside bar. The pool on the rooftop looked nice. The... More

Market Pavilion is an amazing place. I can't say enough about the courteous staff, beginning with the greeting from Haven Turner, the wonderful bellmen, the front desk, concierge, the amazing pastries for breakfast, housekeeping, etc. If you want to be pampered this is your place. Thank you for such a nice stay, Market Pavilion!

Look you have lots of options in Charleston. I have stayed at many of them. This place is next to the market, walking distance to great places. In addition to this the roof top bar and the restaurant are tough to beat. Most of the good restaurants are on King in the town now so its a walk. But after... More
