Front desk attendant, Kimberlee was extremely helpful with recommendations for dinner - quick check in and just overall delightful. Room was very clean and updated. Looking forward to visit again soon!

The rooms were not very clean and could use some updating. It is not what I would expect out of Hilton brand. The pool was not working and we were not informed of this until our arrival. The wall were paper thin and could you hear everything in the hallways and the outside. Our room was over the Porte Cochere... More

Not a bad place for 1 night on the way to D.C. Cheap rates for the type of hotel. Only the pool wasn't working. I would consider staying there again, but would have to check out the other area hotels first to see if they had a working pool.

Always friendly and accomodating. Food is excellent and room service is fast and courteous. Locations is great - close to the train station and 30 minutes to the Philadephia airport. Call in advance for a taxi from the front desk. Their van shuttle will pick you up at the train station and will take you to area restaurants if you... More

I left a wake-up call with the hotel staff on my second evening of a two day stay to ensure I was up in time to catch my plane back to Charlotte the next day. I DID NOT RECEIVE THE CALL. I was fortunate to wake in time to make my plane. I was told I would receive added Hilton... More

We were greeted with great warmth and courtesy. It was a wonderful time. We were blessed with a great room, wonderful hospitality and service beyond our expectations. The only complaint was the chef may have been having a bad day. Our dinner was a little overcooked. Being a chef myself, My wife and I noticed it right away. We were... More

Yawn, Overnight stay in downtown Wilmington Delaware after watching 4th of July fireworks in Philadelphia was ho hum, no area fun places open after 11pm on a Saturday night. Perhaps for business the pace might be ok during the week. Bartender and Breakfast server stood out as kind. Omelette station was unmanned, might of been the man who was stocking... More

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.

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
