We were delighted with the staff and quiet location. Breakfast was very good and we especially appreciated the excellent shuttle service to Amtrak. We had no problem getting to the hotel from Hwy 13 even though it was dark.

<10 minutes to the convention center. Very convenient location. Yes, it isn't the ritz but as a using ss traveler it worked fine for me. Easy in, easy out. Had read about WIFI issues and asked for a good room. No trouble participating in a video conference. I'll be back next time I have business in the area.

We did the valentines day special which included overnight stay, dinner, and breakfast buffet. Everyone was exceptionally nice and courteous. From check in through check out. Staff was pleasant and made the whole experience great. Dinner was delicious, waitstaff and bartender were very accommodating. We didnt feel rushed and had a really nice time. Champagne and strawberries in the room... More

We have stayed at the Belle with our two dogs on a couple of occasions on our trips from Maine to Georgia. The staff is very welcoming, the room clean and cheery. Phil, the desk clerk, was especially warm and made us feel so welcome. He provided good directions as well. We will most assuredly stay here again!

Recently stayed at the Clarion for a week on business. The hotel is convenient to where I needed to be and the room was spacious with a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. However, the restaurant closes too early for business travelers and the night I did get there before closing, the chicken caesar salad was not edible. Housekeeping was also... More

The hotel is very nice. The rooms are clean and temperature control was very easy on a very cold wether stay. People were friendly in the restaurant. Food was good but not outstanding. I used the Wilmington train one day and it was a very short ride straight into the terminal area.

I was passing through the New Castle area for business and found the Clarion to be a perfectly good place to spend the night. The free wifi worked well, and I did not have time for the complimentary buffet breakfast, but it seemed more promising than some of the rudimentary free breakfasts normally offered in hotels of this type.

I wasn't sure about choosing this hotel at check-in since the process took 30 minutes….trying to find adjoining rooms that had been requested. Ultimately, it was determined that there were no adjoining rooms available that had the required bed configuration. While this was a long process without the desired outcome, I was impressed with the obvious efforts being made to... More
