The rooftop pavilion bar scene @ this hotel is perfect for a visit before or after dinner. Every time we looked out over the city we could enjoy an interesting view, especially to the east. The service was excellent!

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...

Our first trip to Charleston and this hotel was recommended by several others. Very clean and quiet with excellent staff. Private floors are nice with coffee and pastries by the elevators every morning. The rooftop bar is great. Highly recommend!

What an absolutely beautiful hotel-- from the marble floors to the grand mouldings-- it is simply lovely! Loved the rooftop bar. Perfect location for walking everywhere, too. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were impeccably clean. We will definitely be staying here again!
