The hotel is nice but overly pricey on Friday and Saturday nights. Stay on a Sunday night if you can. Hotel is in a great location with lots to see. Definitely get a room with a river view, there is not much to see on the city side. Hotel pool is very nice, but the poolside bar is frequently closed... More

I usually stay here when I come to Wilmington. You can't beat the location. It is right on the river walk and convenient to many restaurants and shops. For OTH fans ( if you need to ask, disregard), this is the perfect location, you will reminisce about certain things and be within a very close distance to where many scenes... More

When asking for river view be sure to get a high level room. Ruth Cris was awesome. Being able to walk downtown was the best part of the trip. Great restaurants, sight seeing tours, Henrietta III cruise.

My recent visit to Wilmington I needed to be in the downtown area. This was perfect! Very comfortable and quiet rooms. Close to everything. You are a short walk to all the great restaurants, bars, coach rides and more. The staff is very knowledgeable in helping you choose the right place for a solo or group meal, catching a bar... More

This was a really beautiful hotel with an incredible staff. We had an updated room, top floor, riverside. Yes, there was some noise from the rooms on either side of us. That happens, especially in older hotels. The elevator was very fast, as was the housekeeping service. Everything was clean and smelled fresh. Staying within walking distance of the historic...

This hotel is in need of an update. In my opinion it is way overpriced for its current condition. We were very dissatisfied. The staff was what we expected from a Hilton but the property itself just didn't hold up!

Hotel is in a great location, but is dated and average at best. Price was excessive for the quality considering the overall quality is mediocre at best. Not what I would expect from the Hilton family of hotels. Bed was comfortable, bathroom seemed clean, but shower grout was disgusting and looked dirty.

When the convention center hotel gets built, this Hilton will die a slow death unless it refurbishes its meeting space and pool. During a three day stay, the pool rarely had towels available outside, and one day there were black ants/bugs floating everywhere. The rooms were okay and offer a spectacular view of the river (assuming you have a Riverview).... More

My first Hilton experience was not the best. We arrived right around at check-in. First we drove up the ramp and no one really directed us where to go. We saw the bellman, but they didn't seem like they wanted to help us. We parked in self parking and walked up to the front where the bellman were helping other... More

We arrived at noon after an 8.5 hour drive from Pennsylvania to find our room was ready. We had reserved and paid a little extra for a river view room which is exactly what we got and on the 8th floor. The room was clean and roomy. The room did not have a safe or refrigerator which was a downer.... More

Thank you for the great review regarding your recent stay with us! We were delighted to hear your room was ready and you made full use of our close proximity to activities in the Historic District. Our guest rooms do come with safes but they are located inside the dressers. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your view of the... More
