This was my third stay here....and by far the best! If at all possible, the staff has ramped up the service,attention to detail, and beauty of the common areas! Eleanor was the person in charge of the concierge level and was amazing! The PASTRY CHEF turned out VERY high quality cookies, pastries, and delicious breads....better than ANY Ritz I have...

We are in Charleston often and stay at Market Pavilion many times over the years. Hospitality is an art and one that cannot be taken for granted. The location is excellent and the view from the top is the ultimate in Charleston. But any visit starts with the 1st person you see. The man in the top hat out front...

JR Yniesta did a fabulous job helping us at lunch at the upstairs grill. He was attentive and modified the meal as I requested. While I was there, I noticed how helpful he was to other patrons. It is nice when you are visiting a city to have such wonderful service.

From the staff to cleanliness of rooms, to luxurious bath and separate shower to rooftop dining, rooftop pool area and to the turndown service (exceptional touch), coffee on every floor throughout the day, pastries on every floor in the am and free...

This hotel is so beautifully decorated...I really love the ambiance of this place. The service is great and the room is clean. The location is also great as all the stores are within short walk distance. I would recommend this place to those that are willing to spend a bit more for the convenience and the atmosphere.

My wife and I look forward to staying here when we're in the Charleston area. Staff is excellent & service is top notch. We try (and recommend) getting a room on the concierge floor (4th floor I believe). Roof top deck is a great place to kick back & relax although we found the mixed drinks "weak". Food is good....

When I go to Charleston, I make the Pavilion Rooftop Bar at the Market Pavilion Hotel a must see. The cocktails are pricey but the view is terrific.

You will love the Market Pavilion. The hotel exudes grace, charm, comfort and an understated elegance. Staff couldn't be nicer. We arrived a little before noon. The front desk stored our luggage while the concierge gave us ideas for a walk and a great recommendation for lunch. At 12:30 we received a call letting us know the room was ready....
