Reviewed 4 June 2014

MPH exceeded our expectations. All the hotel staff was very friendly, accommodating and provided the class and professionalism you would expect at such a place. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms were plush and the rooftop was breathtaking. The vouchers you get each day are a nice touch - we used the for rooftop drinks one day and then lunch at Grill 225 another day. Both were excellent. There is a light continental breakfast each morning and coffee throughout the day. Location is excellent, you can walk anywhere from the hotel and many of the best restaurants/bars are nearby. We got a corner Queen suite and highly recommend it - we had a great view and French doors leading out to a small balcony overlooking he market. Absolutely perfect. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else next time.

Room Tip: Corner Queen Suite guarantees a great view.

Stayed at the Market Pavilion last weekend. Wonderful service and attention to detail. Located right in the heart of the French Quarter; all local attractions are within easy walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel for those who want to experience the personal touch of Southern Hospitality! Roof top Pavilion Bar is a must stop with a great view of the city and harbor. Junior, Dave and Cheryl provide excellent service behind the bar. A great place for a casual dinner, lunch or a refreshing drink.

Room Tip: Consider the concierge level for added, personal service.

The service at the Market Pavilion Hotel is excellent. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and very attentive. We received great advice and service from AJ and Hugh at the concierge lounge. They were very accommodating to our dietary needs and gave great advice on local attractions and restaurants. The hotel concierge Kim did a great job at getting us tickets for the Fort Sumpter evening cruise and last minute restaurant reservations. All of the staff made this a very pleasant and relaxing stay here at the hotel.

We recently made a quick trip to Charleston and booked a last minute room at Market Pavilion Hotel. It was overall a delightful stay from the moment we arrived until our departure the next day. The staff was extremely welcoming (valets were exceptional) and our room was quite comfortable. The hotel's location makes it ideal for exploring downtown. It's an easy walk to many of the fun things that the peninsula has to offer. We especially enjoyed having a night cap at the hotel's rooftop bar. I'm not sure very many places can capture the beauty of the city quite like there. Charleston has a number of lovely hotels near the market that we've enjoyed through the years. I expect we'll be repeating our stay at Market Pavilion on our next getaway.

Perfect place to stay for a romantic weekend! The hotel is beautiful on the inside and the rooftop pool and bar just top it off. Prime location next to the market and right in the heart of downtown Charleston. We got a great rate for the weekend plus the hotel gave us a $50 food and drink credit everyday (this was a special and probably not always available). We used this for lunch on the roof during the day or evening cocktails before walking the city each night. We will be back!

This is a really nice hotel in the heart of the historic Charleston area. Walking distance from everything that you want to explore in this beautiful city. The staff is helpful and courteous. The hotel is clean and very well kept. They have a rooftop bar/pool area which seems to attract a lot of local folks too and appears to be a big hangout place for drinks before/after dinner. Very lively and happening scene. The rooftop (Pavilion) has a very nice view and due to it's popularity can make finding a place to sit hard at peak times.
The only thing I would change, if I could, would be a room with a window that gave us more natural light; even if no view. The window in our room (#219) opened to a wall only a few feet away and that deprived us of natural light. Apart from that one issue, the hotel was great and up to our expectation.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Charleston and wants to be close to the city and be in the heart of everything. This hotel did not appear to be one where I would necessarily take kids; but that can just a personal opinion and not a reflection on the hotel itself.

Room Tip: I stayed in #219 and that room's window does not get any natural light. If you're looking fo...

Thank you for being our guest and staying with us at the Market Pavilion Hotel. I am so pleased you had a “great stay” and found the hotel to be in the perfect location for you and that you found the hotel to be clean and well kept. Yes, the Pavilion Bar is the premier rooftop bar in Charleston and at times gets busy. I do apologize but your accommodations were an inside hospitality suite. Being in the city, we do have rooms which have an interior view. I am glad your overall experience was good and we would love to have you stay with us again in the future. Thank you for sharing your kind comments with us.

We booked the Market Pavilion Hotel for a Mothers Day Weekend with our grown daughter. She had not been back to Charleston since she was a little girl so we wanted to stay at a very special hotel. The Market Pavilion exceeded our expectations in every way. First of all, we were upgraded to a Concierge level double queen room with a view of City Market. We were treated to a full breakfast, afternoon tea sandwiches, and champagne and Hors d'Oeuvres in the early evening. In addition to the wonderful food, we enjoyed our conversations with our Concierge A.J. He was right on in his suggestions for wonderful dining experiences in Charleston. He also shared stores about his native India and by the time we left we felt we had made a new friend.

A.J. was just one of the many friendly employees we encountered at the Market Pavilion. Susanne at the lobby Concierge desk was helpful throughout our stay. We truly felt pampered.

Last but not least of the special amenities at this hotel was the rooftop pool and bar! I don't think there is another hotel in Charleston that has this feature.

It was a very memorable Mothers Day weekend.
