Beautifully appointed, located, managed. The staff were so kind, from helping us plan the next leg of our trip to finding out we could purchase their fabulous pillows. Loved the rooftop pool and bar. Look forward to staying there for years to come.

We stayed four nights in November 2013. The hotel looks "old" as in classic but was built in 2002, so everything is pretty new actually. The rooms are modern, spacious and well equipped. Each morning, they leave coffee, tea, and an impressive continental breakfast near the elevator lobby, so factor that into the price, although there are some fun breakfast places to eat within easy walking distance. The location is excellent, at one end of Market Street --- Meeting Street and King Street are just a few minutes walk away. The Pavilion Bar on the roof is cool, very trendy, although it was chilly when we were there and the space heaters were struggling to keep up. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, helping us find some obscure shops in town. Greg, who tends bar in the lobby bar connected to the restaurant was great -- the second night he remembered me and my drink, and recommended a very good breakfast place in Mt. Pleasant for the next day. All in all a very pleasant place to stay, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor looking out at the Custom House

Thank you for being our guest and staying with us for four nights. We very much appreciate your kind comments and I will also share them with Greg from the Grill Bar. I am pleased that you enjoyed the many extra benefits we provide like complimentary continental breakfast and our location. It seems like you came when the weather was a bit cooler, but we do have the great Lave Lamps to help with keeping your warm on the Pavilion Bar. Thank you once again, and we look forward to your return visit with us.

We stayed at the Market Pavilion Hotel for a weekend getaway this summer and were so delighted that we did. Service was friendly and classy with each employee we dealt with making us feel like we were at home. The room was gorgeous and spotless and the rest of the hotel was beautifully maintained. The general manager, Mark, checked in with us personally to see that everything was going smoothly, and I saw him do that with each guest around us also enjoying cocktails on the awesome rooftop. Stay here and feel taken care of. I can't wait to visit again soon!

This was my first time at the Market Pavilion Hotel and it was memorable! We had a round of Nitrotini's at the lobby bar which was amazing then made our way to the rooftop bar just in time for sunset, what a magnificent view of the city and still managed to have a cozy ambiance. Our servers ( both nights ) were extremely attentive and friendly! I will definitely be back! Thank you

Pastries, fruit, tea and coffee on each floor for breakfast. The rooftop lounge is amazing, has a pool (not heated) and a great view. The food on the rooftop lounge was also very good. Hermes products in the bathroom of the hotel room. Excellent service. Great location. This really is a small leading hotel of the world.

Stayed only for one night in August but it was a great expierence. Service was excellent and prompt. We pulled up out front and immediately the bellmen went to work, car was unloaded and luggage was inside on a luggage cart. Very well appointed room, and the bathroom was the icing on the cake. The coffee and pastries on each floor for breakfast in the morning was a really nice touch. Staff was on top of replenishing both items as needed. Was looking to try the Nitrogen Martinis but they only served them at the lobby bar, and we already established at the rooftop bar for the night. Finally the location can't be beat. It is just steps (literally from the marketplace) and, within close walking distance of many restaurants and attractions in the downtown area. Would definately stay again on a return trip to Charleston hopefully for a longer stay.

Room Tip: All of the standard and deluxe rooms are on the 2nd & 3rd floors only. All others are on the con...
