The Market Pavilion exceeded expectations at all levels. The property is beautiful and well maintained. It is refined and exudes the charm of old Charleston while providing all of the contemporary comforts one comes to expect from a quality hotel. The staff is eager to please and they all seem sincere in making your stay enjoyable.

We have stayed in Charleston many times however this was our first stay at the Market Pavilion Hotel. Although the hotel was very elegant the service was even better.

Stayed at the Hotel to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Place is perfect to a capital "P". Restaurant was very crowded, but, our server Jon DiMania was spot on. Dinner was great and he remembered the smallest of details. I think this is better service than Charleston Place Hotel!

There are soooo many choices of hotels in Charleston, its hard to know what to choose. Choose this one! Very affordable, and our rate included a $50 voucher per day to spend at the rooftop bar or the hotel restaurant. How great is that? Cool cocktails, great food at the bar and the restaurant. The rooms were very well appointed,...

We decided to stay local for a quick staycation, live over the bridge in Mount Pleasant. Weather was amazing and decided to take the opportunity to be a tourist in our own town.

Their rooftop bar is one of the best places in Charleston to soak in the sky any clear evening. Plenty of tables, comfortable bar, not too noisy. Central in town location. Walking distance to a hundred restaurants.

This hotel is amazing. The service is great. You never have to leave the hotel if you don't want to. Room service was wonderful for breakfast but you also have the choice of muffins and pastries set up in the hall. Dinner at Grill 225 was amazing. You have 2 bar options as well.
