I only stayed for one night but was delighted by my experience. My room was great with a super comfy bed. The highlight was the bistro food. Did you know they have an award winning executive chef? Me neither but when I ordered dinner, the bistro staff member told me about the world class crab cakes. I thought "at the... More

This was our first time at the University of Delaware. We were here for a cheerleading competition at the Bob Carpenter Center. Decided to stay the night instead of driving back home because it was a late end time. The hotel was minutes from the venue in a residential area. The hotel was still on campus. Easy access to everything.... More

This hotel is not the Four Seasons but it is perfect for visiting your student at UD. Plenty of parking and you can walk to campus. Rooms nicely equipped, staff very nice and it appeared to be quite clean. Reasonable price and food options if you want them. I would stay here again without reservation.

The staff went above and beyond to answer all my questions about the area and transportation. The hotel was clean and spacious. Breakfast was tasty and reasonably priced. It was everything that I wanted.

I have stayed at the Courtyard UD several times on business, however, I will not stay again. When I travel for business (which is quite frequently), I expect to receive excellent service at the hotel. Whereas, the Courtyard UD is, typically, very friendly and accommodating, I feel I needed to share my last experience with the Trip Advisor readers. During... More

Very nice room, comfortable bed & lots of great pillows! My son & I were too tired to head back out after our arrival so we grabbed a snack at the lobby bistro. It was excellent!

Excellent food downstairs. Try the homemade chili and crab cakes. Very attentive and professional staff. The rooms are spacious and clean. Would definitely stay here again. Room is well lit and great for reading. Very unusual in a hotel.

We stayed here when my father in law passed away in the Wilmington area. The hotel gave us a bereavement rate. Very helpful for an extended stay. Our room was very large and clean. Only wish they had free breakfast! Or at least less expensive. It was good but costly for a family. Staff was very kind and helpful.

The hotel is undergoing renovations, and I could tell we were on a recently-renovated floor. Besides the new carpet smell, everything looked and felt clean and contemporary. The bed in our room was very comfy, although an additional blanket would've been nice. Free Wi-Fi is always a plus. We didn't eat here so I can't comment on the restaurant. We... More
