The Market Pavilion is one of the best hotels you will ever visit. The level of service and the quality of the staff are top notch. The Market Pavilion has a wonderful location in downtown Charleston parallel to the City Market, within easy walking distance of many excellent restaurant, and one block from the cruise terminal

The room was very nicely set up and the desk was conducive for getting work done and there were plenty of outlets available to charge computers and phones. Turndown every evening was a nice touch,...

Couldn't have asked for more. We towed a trailer and we're unfamiliar with the city and Peter the hotel manager went out of his way to accommodate us. The hotel itself is spectacular from the smoking Martinis to the unbelievable views from the rooftop bar it was a win win. The rooms are spacious and they even turn down the...

Outstanding 2-night adventure in Downtown Charleston at the Market Pavilion, while celebrating my wife's 71-st birthday. Affordable valet, exceptional, friendly customer service, clean, classy experience. We live only 3 miles away from the hotel, but this was a nice get-away to enjoy the fine venue. The location is at the corner of East Bay and Market streets, just a perfect...

Hotel was excellent and in a great location - room was fantastic and staff and concierge were great all around. Enjoyed the ability to head upstairs to the roof top bar and pool throughout our stay, but also enjoyed the live jazz downstairs at the lobby bar as well. Restaurant was very good and the daily self-serve breakfast pastries and...

My husband and I were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary last night (02-13) and originally had reservations at SNOB (slightly north of broad).
