Quite, rest and relaxation is what you get at this hotel. The down town area is a safe place where you can walk and enjoy the city. I didn't like having to pay for parking but you are able to come in and out for $15.00 per day.

I was in Wilmington for a couple of days for business and chose the downtown Doubletree based on TripAdvisor reviews. The room was clean and comfortable and the service was very good. However, a few things put a damper on my stay. First, and this is inexcusable for a business-friendly hotel, there were no electrical outlets at or near the... More

This hotel is overdue for a renovation. A/C units in rooms are old and very loud. Dark shades don't close all the way because of the A/C unit and therefore are useless. No USB ports in the room, at all, nowhere!!

Location: downtown, close to the Amtrak station Check in: Very accommodating staff, everyone was smiling. Hotel: Nice, large lobby, convention rooms, fairly busy bar with guests Room: Typical, most important...clean! Bath: Typical set up for Doubletree, and most other hotels. Notes: This part of town can be dicey. Check with staff before planning a run or walk. Parking is available... More

This is not an indictment of all Doubletree hotels. I stayed at a Doubletree in Wilmington, Delaware. I stupidly left behind a small bag where I had received several personal gifts the night before. Bottom Line it took 5 phones in 4 days to confirm that they did not find my items. I even called the Hotel General Manager and... More

The hotel was cleaned and my room was organized and clean. I do eat at the restaurant and everyone were very helpful and make me feel very well. Even that the hotel is in downtowm near a lot of places it was quiet and I really rest. If I return to Wilmington I definitely stay there.

This hotel is very clean. The front desk people were very pleasant. You do have to pay for parking which is now $11 a day. My only issue was there was a group of students who were roaming my floor from 11:30pm to 1am screaming and slamming doors. It was unreal. It stopped after I opened the door and yelled... More

It is always a pleasure to stay at Doubletree as it is my first choice of places to stay. Came to DE for a wedding and was very pleased. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Had a lack of communication at a point but it was resolved.

I have stayed at many DoubleTree hotels and this one so far is the best. If there is an option for a 10-STAR, I would give it to Cheree at the front desk. She is so friendly and she made our trip a memorable experience. We checked in late the night before and they ran out of our favorite cookies.... More
