“Southern Charm At It's BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This fabulous hotel, staff, and its venue can not be BEAT! My husband and I have been to Charleston more times than we can count. We are from South Carolina. This hotel is a great find. The valet service, room service, and the concierge service is always OUTSTANDING! The roof top pavilion is not to be missed. Experience Charleston with your favorite cocktail in your hand! Try their chocolate martini. I promise you will NOT be disappointed. This hotel's southern hospitality will blow you away. Enjoy this hotel during the winter season as well. The roof top has heaters and is still as much fun as it is in the summer. This is a year round hotel!

Hadn't been to Charleston since I was stationed there on a Navy destroyer in the '60's. Needless to say this visit was much different, most especially thanks to the Market Pavilion Hotel. For starters, it has a great location near the most charming part of Charleston and within easy walking distance of some very nice restaurants. Rooms were very nice, as was the dining room and the rooftop bar. We particularly enjoyed the small dining and lounge area on our floor where a delicious breakfast was served, and later in the day, tea and snacks. Our hostess, Melissa (I hope I have her name right) was most gracious and attentive. She made us feel completely at home.

It is a great location with a wonderful & friendly staff. Melissa - the parlor concierge- was phenomenal. She couldn't do enough for us. It is worth the extra $$$ to stay on the concierge level with a wonderful, full breakfast, tea & cookies & sandwiches in mid-day and plentiful food & wine for cocktail time.

Room Tip: Concierge status & not on the back side of the hotel!

This beautiful hotel is in the heart of historic Charleston and is situated directly across from the Charleston Market.

The staff from the valet to room service could not have been more attentive, or preformed their job anymore flawlessly. As a South Carolina native that frequents Charleston often I can honestly say that you will not find a nicer accommodation in town.

I suggest that you take in the entire experience, from the amazing rooftop bar and pool, to the DELICIOUS 225 Grill....this will solidify your stay and make return to the Market Pavilion whenever you return to "The Holy City".

Great place, wonderful ambiance and restaurants, we went in March and had great weather. Visited the rooftop bar several times. We plan to go back next year, as well as future years. They want a 200 character review and I have no more to say . . . .

Room Tip: We stayed in a premium king room, the pictures led me to believe we had a huge marble bath, that is...

While the Market Pavillion is an exceptional property, with a great restaurant (Grill 225) have the Ribeye..) and a super fun roof bar, The main reason I am writing this review is their extraordinary Concierge Susanne Cohen by name. Susanne took care of every minute detail of our, (8 folks from Texas), visit to Charleston. From Restaurants to Golf tee times, to tours to sending us lost articles she managed our whole trip perfectly, and with such southern charm. We would return to this lovely place primarily because of the amazing TLC provided by Susanne and her team. Joe and Bonnie Kelly

Room Tip: Standard rooms are very good, remember to use Plat Amer express for upgrades if you participate.....

This was our third time staying here. We haves stayed at the charleston place hotel, but this hotel has a better feel. Smaller boutique style hotel with a more personal feel. We stay on the concierge floor (4). Full breakfast is served there every morning. Along with a high tea(cookies, flan, creme brûlée) and a happy hour 6-8pm featuring plenty of hot and cold appetizers along with good selection of wines and beer. Melissa and Amanda were very attentive and helped us arrange for anything we needed. The only suggestion I would have is to change up the breakfast every day. I ate the same thing for 4 days in a row...
Our room was an average size, but nice furniture, tv, and the bed was very comfortable. The bath had a separate shower from the tub, and that is a must for us. Two sinks would have been preferable, but I understand space is limited in an older building.
