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.

Previous reviews sealed my decision to book here. Location is ideal, walking distance to everything. Hotel is elegant with a customer centric approach. Concierge level room was a huge factor in my decision to stay here. Room was spotless and well appointed. Staff was fantastic. Concierge was superb. The fifty dollar credit per day is a nice bonus. Pool area is a great place to relax after a busy day of exploring. Great experience. Highly recommend.

Great Stay!

We had a wonderful stay at The Market Pavilion at the end of September. The hotel was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. We loved our room, it was decorated with true Charleston charm. Turn down service was offered every night and daily treats were delivered to the room. The location of the hotel was perfect. We felt we were in the center of downtown and everywhere we wanted to go was walkable.
We have to give a big shout out to the bartender at Grill 225 inside the hotel. Mike S. was amazing. We have never seen a bartender multi task as much as Mike did on the Saturday night we were there, not to mention he makes great cocktails.
We look forward to visiting again!!

Anniversary Trip
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Valet offered warm greeting, though had to drive around block once to look for it as no one standing outside and there was construction nearby. Nice greeting upon check in and room was spacious though view in concierge king was of a parking garage. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast provided in concierge area was filling and a good start to the day. Anniversary treat was sent to room, which was a very nice touch.

From the moment we walked into the Lobby we were treated like VIP's. The staff and ambiance is 5 star. The rooms are beautiful and well kept. From the roof top bar to the bar in the lobby you will be impressed! If you are going to Charleston and please go....stay at the Market Pavilion.
