I requested that my room be fragrance-free & I did not detect any fragrances to my delight. The service was excellent and the staff always answered questions completely and then some. Cookies were a nice touch. Quite delicious which made turning away from them all the more difficult. I was also pleasantly surprised by the availability of a free shuttle... More

As a frequent hotel visitor (over 200 nights a year) I finally received great service at the DoubleTree in Wilmington. They have a great staff and provide the extra touches you need when on business travel. If your travels take you to downtown Wilmington this is a very good place to escape from the busy day.

I had an extremely pleasant staff at the Wilmington Downtown Doubletree. The staff were very courteous. The room was immaculate. Internet access was complimentary and the room was equipped with a clean refrigerator. Excellent accomodations for a very reasonable price. PS. Free shuttle from AMTRAK was a plus.

Hotel staff is graat but the food here needs some work. On the first night there I rejected the beef stew which was horribly seasoned - so I ordered the French Onion soup. There was NO broth in the soup, it was all onions, and no stringy cheese which we expect on this soup. FAIL. The next night I ordered... More

The staff at this hotel was very helpful, both James at the front desk and especially Laura in room service were attentive and friendly.

The room and staff were very friendly but the majority of the exercise room televisions, remotes, etc are not functioning. I have stayed at the hotel two weeks in the past month and the problem has existed both times.

Double Tree in Wilmington, Delaware is conveniently located in the city - close to food, entertainment, and shopping (Tax free) in the Christiana Mall or other Delaware stores. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the pool & exercise room can help guests stay fit. The breakfast & coffee are great, too!

The hotel was clean. The room was bigger than most with a bathroom that was bigger also. The hotel was in walking distance of the Grand, the DuPont Playhouse and the World Cafe. The indoor pool looked clean but we didn't have the time to use it. It's also in walking distance of the Riverfront but we took the trolley... More

Perfect locations for the Mid-Atlantic Food and Beverage conference as well as to view the Wilmington Grand Prix bike race. This hotel is within walking distance to some lovely restaurants (many with outside seating). The hotel's staff were very helpful and eager to make your stay more enjoyable.
