We arrived the day before Thanksgiving and stayed until Monday after. Everything was perfect although frequently crowded! The rooms (we had two) were large, comfortable, well decorated --and above all quiet even though we were overlooking a busy street!! Having coffee an, pastries, and fruit in the hallway nearby is a very very nice touch All of the staff are...

I love this place!! Although I've been to the restaurant several times, this was the first time I've stayed there. It was amazing, they think of every detail. I especially loved the pastry's and coffee on each floor in the mornings. The rooftop bar/pool is the best place in Charleston to just relax if that's what you feel like doing....

This hotel is incredible! The attention to detail is unreal. They have evening "turn down" service. The rooftop bar is swanky and first class all around. The staff is phenomenal and the rooms are so well done. The restaurant Grill 225...all I can say is wow!

Attention to detail second to none. Great location, great rooms, great employees. Met the owner Nick and the GM Peter; top notch guys. Roof top bar/pool is hard to beat. This is a much stay in Charleston.

My brother and I had drinks last evening overlooking Market Street and city waterfront. Nice view of the Ravenel Bridge although it was somewhat smoky with all the forest fires to the west. The ambiance is very nice. There were man gas fired heaters around so the cool weather was no problem. The server was generally attentive and the drink...

Thank you for shaing your experience of the Pavilion Bar, high atop the Market Pavilion Hotel. I am glad you enjoyed the ambiance, the heaters to keep you warm and of course the service and drinks. It was a bit of a shame regarding the smoke, but everything has cleared and the views are back to 100%. We hope to...

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are lovely, the staff is so friendly and helpful - and the rooftop pool and restaurant - icing on the cake. The concierge set us up with the best walking tour and recommended some great restaurants. Perfect location right in the heart of the historic district, made it so easy to walk everywhere.

Good location, great restaurant, very nice decor.. Problems with hotel elevators prevented access to guest rooms, items in rooms that did not work, etc. would lead me to consider other hotels in the same price range for my next visit to Charleston.

What a fun spot to just soak up the city! We stopped up there for a cocktail only. The view and atmosphere was great. Our server was attentive and really didn't seem to mind that we were just hanging out. There were adequate heaters too.

We saw the lights on the rooftop bar from the street and had to go see it. You enter a lovely restaurant lobby and walk back to the elevators. Once you exit on the top floor and go through the double doors, there is a pool with soft lighting and fountain sprays and lounge chairs. The high tops all have...

We had a fantastic stay at the Market Pavilion Hotel. Having stayed at several hotels within blocks of the City Market, this hotel was like no other. Service, food, ambiance and the location are absolutely perfect. The concierge level had a delicious breakfast, afternoon tea and a cocktail hour. Also, the rooftop pool was gorgeous and offered amazing views. We...
