I usually find myself staying in a Hilton hotel as it's my comfort zone. I arrived and checked in. They have valet or self parking, I believe both cost. I received a voucher for breakfast, which wasn't bad at all. My room was updated with a very beautiful view. I had the view of the river as well as the... More

You will not be dissappointed in staying here. The rooms were comfortable and the ammenities were great. It was a pleasant, relaxing, four night business stay. I plan on returning with my family next year and extend our stay past just business.

stayed for 3 nights recently here and this hotel is in a great location on the water. It is in good shape but the room maintenance is lacking. The room was a nice size, bed was comfortable. The AC sounded like a jet engine roar when the fan was blowing. Other members of my group had the same opinion of... More

This hotel seems very good but it looks they had a very bad week the week I stayed in. Hotel is clean, nice view if you stay in a room facing the river (you see the battleship and sunsets are awesome). Rooms are "average" for the price. Location wise is incredible, many restaurants and tourist attraction are at walking distance.... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel as part of a developers weekend. The room was very nice, spacious, and comfortable. The desk service was very polite and knowledgeable. Our only complaint was the maid service. On the second day after being outside in the heat all afternoon, we returned to the room still not made up - it... More

We visited Wilmington for a weekend and wanted to be close to everything. This is one block down from front street that has shopping, restaurants, and clubs/bars. Our room over looked the river across from the battle ship. Got to watch people kayak and paddle board down the river. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Bathroom was okay could... More

We spent part of our anniversary weekend here. Upon arrival, the staff was very attentive and friendly. There was one glitch in the beginning. Our toilet got stopped up twice. We had to call the maintenance person to come unstop it both times. The clerk at the front desk offered to move us to a different room if the toilet... More

This hotel is a bit dated and pricey for what is included. Parking is an extra cost; no extra touches in the rooms. Items such as a small refrigerator would be nice. Better lighting in the bathroom is needed. The location is great, but hard to justify the cost to stay. Just average accommodations, but $200+ per night.

I've been at a few second rate Hilton's in my day. This is by far the worse. It's time for an overhaul of the entire place including the management. The best part of my stay was the coffee bar in the lobby. The pool is a totally unsupervised free for all. Guests walking around with glass wine bottles, kids running... More

We visited Wilmington for my husband's birthday and 4th of July. A hurricane blew up, but that didn't stop us from enjoying Wilmington! The Hilton has recently added a terrace and hosted a 4th of July party that was simply wonderful! We had great seats for the fireworks. Breakfast at Innovations was also great. It was also nice to be... More
