My husband and I just returned last week from a weekend getaway to Charleston, SC. During our visit we stayed at theMarket Pavilion Hoteland I thought this was a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting the area and wanted to share our experience.
The hotel is located in downtown Charleston right next to the Charleston City Market and close to bars, restaurants, shopping, attractions, the waterfront and the cruise terminal.
My husband and I recently spent the weekend in Charleston, SC. I hadn’t been to this area since I was a kid. I couldn’t believe all that there was to see and do! One of the first questions we were asked when we arrived was if we were in town for Bachelor/ Bachelorette parties or a wedding. Charleston has become a destination hotspot for both and I can easily see why. The historic charm of the downtown area coupled with all bars, restaurants and attractions make this an ideal location for a celebration.
If you've followed my travels over the years, you know I sail all the different cruise lines. Each cruise line is unique. I look forward to different things on each cruise line. Here's the things I look forward most on Princess Cruise Lines:
Have you sailed Princess? What are some of your favorites? Which of my favorites would you be sure to try?
Are you looking for a pre cruise hotel in Fort Lauderdale for our cruise out of Port Everglades. In this post, I share my review of the Holiday Inn Express Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel.
The location is terrific. Lots of restaurants, grocery
stores, and shops nearby plus you are one stop light away from Port Everglades.
The hotel provides a free airport shuttle. Parking is only
$5 per night during your stay. You can sign up for an extra charge cruise port
The rooms were clean and well- equipped.
The free breakfast has several options: pancakes, hard
boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, toast and cinnamon
The pool is small, but clean. I like that it's on the 4th
floor so you aren't right next to the street
Check in / Check out is a zoo. It's not hotel's fault. This
is cruise hotel. That means hundreds of people are checking in and out the same
day. You have the people disembarking from their cruise arriving between 8 am -
10am. No rooms for them so some just hang around in the lobby. You have a mass
check out at 11 am as everyone heads to their cruise. Then, you have people
arriving the night before their cruise. They arrive anytime throughout the day.
Tip: If you will arrive at the hotel before 4 pm - make a
plan outside of the hotel. Book an excursion. Head to the beach. Grab a
barstool at Duffy's Sport Bar.
