Overview

Gilded Southern belle in Charleston’s historic downtown with a clubby steakhouse and rooftop pool

The Lowdown

Marble floors, ornate wainscoting and gilt-framed antique paintings offer an Old South welcome at this gentile abode in Charleston’s historic district. There’s an old-boys club vibe to the Grill 225 steakhouse, where USDA-certified cuts are wet-aged for 42-50 days. Also on the menu? Straight-up martinis and a menu of sustainable seafood. Ascend to the roof for panoramic views, a waterfall pool and small-bite-paired cocktails that range from tropical signatures to speakeasy staples. Pillowy mahogany beds and Italian marble bathrooms with Hermes products feel refined yet inviting.

In the Area

Surrounded by time-tested tributes to the Old South, Charleston’s historic district colors the present with shades of the past. Take in 1,000 feet of Charleston harbor views along paved strolling paths at the Waterfront Park, or trot through 2 ½ miles, 30 blocks and 300 years of Antebellum charm with the Old South Carriage Company. Sift through more than 150 American artisans’ work (think: blown glass and handmade jewelry) at the One of a Kind Gallery. When you’re ready to refuel, take a day trip and head to Cucina 24 in Asheville for Southern Italy meets the Deep South cuisine. Then take a brewery tour to drink in Asheville’s microbrew scene.

This is a great place to stay for some R&R in Charloeston. We stayed on the concreige level and you can just about get enough to eat there for your vacation. But you need to try some of the nearby resturants. 3rd time staying there and it my wife's favorite place in Charleston!

The Best Service at an Amazing Location!

Such a beautiful hotel right in the heart of downtown Charleston. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, particularly Mr. Will Morrison at the front desk/concierge desk. I definitely would recommend staying here!

Perfect Pick

Location was great, hotel room was clean and spacious for a downtown room bathroom was ample size with top notch shampoos and lotions. The cookies at night were delious. If you opt for the consequor floor you won’t be disappointed. The rooftop bar is the perfect break from a busy sightseeing day.

Great location and service!

We loved the location and charm of the city. The roof top at Market Pavillion is cool amd the food is excellent. We were a little disappointed with the pool, I would say it is more for ambience than actual swimming. Fantastic concierge and room attendents, fresh pastries to room each day wow! Decor in room is a bit old, but still nice and classy.
