Stayed at the Double Tree in Wilmington DE as a part of a bridal party. It was a two night stay. The hotel knew for months that we were coming - bride had several conversations with hotel manager about the event. During check in we were told there was a continental breakfast offered - yet the next morning we were... More

I was bowled over by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Their free shuttle service to the DuPont estates was fabulous, particularly for those who don't drive. I would definitely stay there again. Susan

Stayed two nights while visiting my daughter in college. The hotel was very nice and the room was big and comfortable. The hotel staff was very helpful to our needs. I would definitely stay at the Double Tree in Wilmington, Delaware again. The only slight inconvenience was that the hotel does not have private parking. However, they reimbursed me for... More

Great hotel overall. My one complaint is they dont have the Fox Sports channel on the hotel room tv's. The MLB playoffs and World Series are currently and will be airing on Fox Sports, so it was a little annoying that this channel could not be accessed in the room. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay.

My stay was, without exception, outstanding. Kina (sp?) at the front desk was super friendly and helpful. Without question, she upgraded my room because my reservation came through for another date and a room of my type was not available. I had dinner in the restaurant, and the food was excellent. The room I got was enormous, very clean, well... More

We had a lovely stay with no problems. From the travel to Wilmington from Marlton through check-in and check-out and the travel home to Marlton. The room was just right. Very nicely decorated and clean. Our view was not great but maybe next time. We arrived earlier than expected but they still had a room available. The cookies were in... More

This hotel was very conveniently located for the things we wanted to see and do. The free shuttle van for anything in a 5-mile radius of the hotel was really great-virtually everything we wanted to see was in that 5-mile radius and so we did not have to rent a car. The room was large, comfortable, and was very clean... More

average customer service, housekeeping needs work as the room cleanliness was not up to Doubletree standards, fitness center is too small for a downtown area where you can't get out and walk or run and too small to handle morning peak times. good location if that is important. Room service was fast, food was OK.

William, Thank you for telling us about your stay. My apologies for the challenge you encountered with cleanliness. This should never be in question and I will review with our housekeeping team. While we are in the planning stages, we are working on enlarging the fitness center to a larger room with additional equipment. I am not completely sure of... More

Rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel situated in a quiet area. The staff is friendly. Hotel is within walking distance of the bus and train station, as well as river front. There is a limited (with regard to distance that they will travel), free shuttle service. They welcome you with a warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

Thank you for writing a reveiw on TripAdvisor. I am very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. One of the perks of the hotel is definitely the complimentary shuttle. It does travel within 5 miles fo the hotel which does encompass many things to do in the area. We do hope to see you again when travel brings you... More

This hotel gets the highest rates in every category but to me, the most impressive thing about this hotel is it's staff. Each and every one of them was friendly and helpful. One of them even came up to us when we were in the lobby and said for us to contact him if we had any problems at all!... More
