Enjoyed the stay & the friendly atmosphere of all working at this facility, The food was excellent & the location was nice because it allowed us to walk across to the Grand theatre to see a great show. The cookies they gave us were delicious & made a nice surprise.

good location to visit nearby attractions (longwood gardens, Nemours, Winterthur) nice dining options at river walk. Not much to do in the legal district on weekend. complimentary shuttle bus from hotel makes it easy to get to and from River walk area. At the hotel the area is not inviting to walk around but river walk area is fine.

My recent stay was pleasant. The pool is closed for repairs, I didn't see any construction going on but then again I didn't go look. I am used to walking around everywhere when I go to places, was told to be very careful outside because the area can get shady at night. I didn't go adventure or anything but I... More

Everything was wonderful and I would recommend this hotel to all of my friends. Our organization has their Annual meeting here every year along with other AME activities. I give great accommodations to the staff at this hotel.

After a long day of driving we decided to check into a hotel and this looked to fit the bill for the area. The GPS took us through perhaps some of the worst neighborhoods of Wilmington with roads closed which could really turn you around. Upon arrival the car port was nowhere near the parking so we followed a sign... More

Very good for the price. Does need updating but all in all it's a good deal. Restaurant breakfast buffet was very good and had a decent variety, although the booth seating was poor and definitely needs new bench seats.
