The staff was very helpful and answered all my questions. The rooms was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bartender was very friendly and talkative. The hotel was within walking distance of the venue I needed to go to. I parked my rental on the street in order to not have to pay for parking. I could do... More

This hotel has very nice rooms that appear to have been renovated in the past few years. The restaurant in the hotel is ok, but with very good service. For the area, this is a solid choice hotel especially at a decent rate. On the weekends, downtown Wilmington is very quiet.

LOCATION: The Doubletree may be your only decent downtown option unless I'm misinformed. It's on N. King St., the main downtown drag. If you arrive on Amtrak or Greyhound (across the street from each other), it's a moderate distance but I don't recommend walking as you're continually going up a grade that may be difficult. I walked (no cab available),... More

The hotel staff were relatively polite and chatty with me. I do think they overestimated how safe the Wilmington area is...since we were in a pretty shady place. So, I was excited that there was a complimentary hotel shuttle (so I wouldn't risk walking around on my own) that would reach all of the places I needed to visit. But,... More

I was visiting Wilmington's legal district for a training program and found the Doubletree to be the perfect place to stay. I simply love the warm cookie welcome when you check in. The hotel is a short walk from some great restaurants and shops, and was a great place to return to after a long day of training. The hotel... More

Bryan, Thank you for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope your training went well. I completely understand regarding the brightness of the room. If an effort to be green we did change all bulbs over to fluorescent some time ago. We are currently looking at changing everything to LED... More

I just wanted to follow up on my previous review/experience with this hotel. In May, my husband and I visited this location (not our first time) and the experience was not as pleasant as we felt it should have been (see my last review for details).

My boyfriend and i were on our way back to Georgia when we decided that after being awake for over 24 hours we had enough traveling.

Very friendly staff. Got in very late and needed a quick place to stay. Booked from the plane and they were waiting with my cookie when I got there. Because it was so late, they probably knew who I was since I was probably the last of their reservations to check in. It was nice they welcomed me by name... More

Pool closed with a severely bad smell filling the whole floor. The bellhop lost my very expensive bag (which was eventually returned to me) after very bad unneeded stress. The hotel is a bit outdated but not awful. The room was nice. The parking is not owned by Doubletree and you have to go to the front desk to validate... More
