Very nice accommodations overlooking the river and the Battleship. Beautiful sunset. Valet and shuttle to take you to any local restaurant of choice. They can also provide recommendations. It was a beautiful evening so we walked back. Very nice place to stay. A little more expensive but worth it!

I checked into the Hilton and found it to be an older hotel! The rooms need a little updated face lift! The trade off is the location and the river view! I would visit again because of the location with the historic area and the river walk! Check out the seafood restaurant called, George on the river walk! Good seafood... More

Staff ok, bed ok, room was small and just a few TV channels to watch and no continental breakfast. For the price of about $170 anight and $9 for parking in the off season, I would expect more. The place was clean and good heating and air.

The location of this hotel is perfect to walk to all downtown had to offer. The rooms were modern and beds were comfortable. The historic riverview had a perfect view of Capefear River and Battleship.

The hotel is a bit old, and this you can see once you get in. Old refurbishings and structures, but well mainteined. On the other side, employees are all young and nice. Hospitality is the southern distinctive feature, and in this hotel this you can see at all levels, from reception to waitress at the breakfast, and to the nice... More

The Hilton has a fantastic location right on the Cape Fear River in downtown Wilmington. Directly behind the hotel is the RiverWalk, a very scenic walkway along the side of the river. Just on the other side of the river is the Battleship USS North Carolina. One block away from the hotel is Front Street, which has a bunch of... More

The Riverside Hilton is located on the Cape Fear Riverwalk. Very convenient to the downtown and river walk restaurants. There is parking at the hotel so you can leave your car and enjoy walking through the historic part of town. Parking was unavailable when we returned from dinner but the valet did park our car with out charge.Sadly, the hotel... More

I stayed here for New Year's Eve 2013 while passing through the area. The hotel is in the perfect location to walk to anywhere in Downtown Wilmington. (Not that big a town.) The hotel was clean, modern, and the room was the same. The front desk staff was super knowledgeable and friendly. I had zero issues while there. The valet... More

I normally really like Hilton. I am willing to pay a little more for Hilton because of the service I get. This was no different and the people were great. My issue is the room is a little small and cramped. There is no fridge, no microwave and no room safe. The hotel is a little older but in good... More
