Can't say enough good things about the staff. The Valet/Bell Hops were fabulously helpful even with my wifes 5 bags of food and such. The room was super comfortable with a fantastic view of the river and the USS North Carolina! Not many hotels can boast of a battleship view like this. The location is convenient for walking tours of... More

WIfe wanted to visit daughter at UNC-W for her birthday so we booked this hotel on the Riverwalk and requested a riverview room While checking in, a gentleman stepped up to the desk, butted in without so much as an "excuse me" and asked for a pair of scissors. Instead of asking the gentleman to wait as the desk girl... More

you may reach the river by walking distance and the view with the walking path is great for exercise with nice view. there are some nice restaurant and ice cream shop nearby. The staffs are friendly and helpful. But the elevators are very slow. Some room was too small, but luckily I reserve junior suite snd I like it. But... More

I was there for a Convention and the meeting facilities were very nice. All the rooms and AV equipment was great. The rooms themselves were ok, not quite up to Hilton Standards, more like a Hampton Inn. Water stains on the ceiling in the room and in the bathroom left you wondering if you would get wet at night during... More

The location along the river can't be beat and is convenient for walking along the riverwalk and to restaurants and shops in downtown Wilmington. The only downside was that the door that adjoins the two rooms let a lot of sound through and we could hear the neighbors as if they were in the same room as us. Our neighbors... More

The hotel staff was very helpful during a rainy, but wonderful weekend. I didn't like the breakfast buffet. The food was only average and it was very expensive. The rooms were satisfactory-beds very comfortable. The refrigerator was bad-dented and stuck in the middle of the room.

There is not a big selection of hotels in Wilmington, especially with an outdoor pool. This Hilton is ideally situated on the Cape Fear River, right across the street from the Cotton Exchange. The decor throughout is adequate but for the price, I would expect updated furnishings. The bathrooms are clean but have old school tubs. There are two full... More

The accommodations at this facility were just awful. The smell in our original room smelled like dogs were living in the room. When we were moved to another room another couple walked in on my family because they were assigned the same room. They had door keys! If we had not been in the room our belongings could have been...

This hotel is in a prime location. Staff is courteous and extremely helpful. For the price you would expect roomier accommodations plus larger and faster elevators. I don't sleep well and would have loved to have been able to move to a recliner or comfy chair when I couldn't get comfortable in bed. Not the bed's fault. Although the rooms... More

I usually stay in a Hilton or Hampton hotel when traveling. This Hilton was an ok place--nothing spectacular. I was quite disappointed when upon arrival I was not greeted as an hhonors member. I usually receive at least a bottle of water when checking in and some hotels even offer snacks which I find a very nice gesture. Not here... More
