Close to the 'waterfront', train and bus stations as well as businesses. Room was very nice, no issues. Free shuttle service from the train station and to dinner along the river. Staff was nice and the chocolate chip cookies are great too.

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip and found it perfectly acceptable for what I needed. Rooms - Massive and the selection of TV channels is excellent. Breakfast - I only had breakfast in the hotel a couple of times and it was pretty standard fair. Staff - The staff were very helpful and a pleasure to speak... More

Stayed there a few weeks ago and since it was late I usually use Hilton brands. Anyway, it seemed that the hotel was in disarray. The rooms were average, and the breakfast was average as well. I expected a bit more from a Doubletree. Additionally, the hotel had a sewer line that was broke, since when we went outside it... More

I recently had an injury that landed me on crutches, in pain and a trip that could not be cancelled across the country from California to Delaware. After 6 hours of delays & 2 flights I arrived around 1:00am exhausted and hurting. The next morning was an early start and that is when I met Hotel Bellman Mark Badson. He... More

Our accommodations to stay here were made for us here by a third party. We were pleasantly surprised (not knowing what to expect) and enjoyed our stay. It's clearly an old building, but the room renovations were done well to make it less so. Staff was welcomingly, friendly and very helpful. Because we had an additional reservation to extend our...

First let me say you really should not have rooms that look onto the swimming pool. Having handicap rooms there is really bad. Handicap people get tired earlier than others. It is hard sleeping while kids are making noise outside your room Second the bed was too high to get in from a wheelchair. The desk was very good and... More

The area outside was not busy and was similar to a city like area. We walked through the doors and greeted well by the hotel personal. The cookie was uplifting. When walking into the room it smelled so fresh and clean. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable.

Gina, Thank you for the 5 star review. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and everything was to your satisfaction. The hotel is considered in the business district part of the city, so the surrounding area can tend to seem quiet, particularly on the weekends, unless there is an event going on in the city. There... More

Stayed here to attend a concert at the Grand and the location was ideal for that. Hotel is situated in downtown, which is not the best place, but they do have a shuttle service to take you to other areas of interest. The hotel itself was a good standard, clean and neat, and the staff were welcoming and helpful.

The DoubleTree by Hilton at Downtown Wilmington Legal District gave me everything I wanted: friendly and helpful staff; roomy, comfortable, quiet and well-equipped room; excellent service and extras; and a free shuttle service to all the magnificent sites I planned to visit, thus eliminating cumbersome logistical difficulties and making my three-day visit an absolute delight.

Stayed at this hotel overnight for a family/business event nearby. Having never stayed at a Doubletree before I had no idea what to expect. The very first thing I noted was that the General Manager replied to all of the reviews of his hotel on this site addressing all kinds of reviews - this already told me that they very... More
