“right in the middle of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

The market pavillion is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Charleston, no need to rent a car. Everything is in walking distance. The rooms are amazing - immaculate, nice furniture and very large. Every morning there is a continental breakfast laid out in the hallway of each floor for the hotel guests - lots of coffee and tea. The rooftop of the hotel has an outdoor pool, bar/food and hangout area. Also, you will find the steakhouse "Grill 225" in the lobby. All in all not a single complaint.

This hotel is exactly what you always hope a hotel will be. I reconnected with an old high school friend there for a "girls weekend". We were thrilled with our accomodations and the ambience of our surroundings. Pampered is how I would express our stay. Location could not have been better - we walked everywhere and did not need at car at all. Coffee, tea, breakfast breads and fruit were in the hallway every morning - we could just pick up whatever and take it back to the room for a leisurely beginning to the day. After a morning of shopping and sight seeing we reinvigorated ourselves by relaxing on chaise lounges in the sun, drink in hand, at the Pavillion Bar on the rooftop. What more could one ask for! We agreed that we could most definitely like to return to Charleston and the Market Pavillion. It was a great experience.

Pampered, is just how we want all of our guests to feel. I am glad you not only felt pampered but enjoyed the ambience and your surroundings. The Sideboard Continental Breakfast is indeed very convenient and I am pleased you took full advantage. I am also pleased that you enjoyed the Pavilion Bar on our roof. It is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink and the view. We appreciate that you chose the Market Pavilion Hotel for your "girls weekend" and hope you will return soon and give us the chance to serve you again.
Thank you.

The Market Pavillon is a wonderful hotel. Unbelievable service and beautiful rooms, rooftop lounge, and the dining room is elegant. The food in Grille 225 on the gorund floor is not only beautiful it is the best food I have ever eaten any where in the world. I travel all over the world and the presentation, the quality, and the sevice is unbeatable. If I want to impress someone I will take them here.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are of equal quality I am sure but we stayed on the north side and could see the bi...

We visited the Market Pavilion Hotel during Charleston's restaurant week and had a wonderful stay! Everything here is top notch. There are fabulous specials on their website, and it is easy to book. Everyone, from the front desk, bell staff, restaurants and housekeeping made our experience very special. Dinner at 225 Grill was divine. Don't miss the Tuna Tower...and the steaks are to-die-for. We LOVED the Pavilion on the roof, especially at night. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we can't wait to return!

We stopped in for drinks--excellent service in a beautiful setting. We'll be back to try the food. The staff were very helpful with a small problem I had (not related to anything there or that we ordered). If the service and the lobby's decor are any indication, it's also a great place to stay in Charleston.

my husband and I checked into the hotel today. The restuarant is closed. We tried to order room service to be told that our menu was not current and what we ordered was not available and they had a boiler disfunction which meant that there is no hot water in our room. We are here for a few more days so wish us luck. Suzanne in the concierege room has been the only treat.

Thank you for your posting. Every year just after New Years, we do close the restaurant to refinish the hard wood floors and unfortunately you arrived as we were in the middle of that project. I am truly sorry for the inconvenience and hope the remainder of your visit was positive. Please contact me the next time you are visiting Charleston as I would like to try to regain your confidence. Thank you again for your candor, I do hope we will have the chance to serve you again.

We were blown away by the attention and service we received by the staff. Everyone was so professional, yet friendly. The roof top bar was a great retreat. This is the best location for exploring downtown!
