Rooms smelled musty, and the bathroom smelled like soured towels. To top things off, the afternoon of our second day, there was no water. There was no water for over 24 hours. There needs to be staff training on how to handle these situations in a professional manner which the front desk supervisor did not. After 7 hours without water,... More

For the most part we enjoyed our stay at this property. We had a beautiful view of the river. The air conditioner was loud so if you are a soft sleeper good luck. The walls are thin we were able to hear conversations from the room next door. Valet parking was a plus. The valet staff were exceptional. My three... More

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Issues all over the place - toilet was rocky, shower didn't drain, in-room dining was disgusting and OLD. Did I mention, that we reported the condition of our bathroom to the front desk so maintenance could fix it and it was NEVER addressed. Their rates are pretty high for such poor quality. My husband and I... More

Thank you for your response regarding your recent stay with us. Again, we're incredibly sorry for the slow-draining problems in your restroom. I checked our Maintenance Department logs and a gentleman did go into your room after the first report and believed he had thoroughly fixed the problem. When you reported it again at check out, we substantially compensated you... More

Located on the Cape Fear river, the Hilton is in an excellent location in downtown Wilmington NC. An easy walk to downtown, a great board walk along the river with terrific restaurants and pubs. Easy access to river boat rides and horse drawn carriage tours. Prices, in town were about as expected. A great cigar store and ice cream shops... More

Buffet is a total loss. Start out your day somewhere else - but not here. Service was poor and to call it a buffet when you had to have one of limited number of servers have to bring your, coffee, water, juice, toast other than plain sliced bread is not really a buffet. maintenance of the buffet line, presentation was...

We're very sorry to hear you did not enjoy our breakfast buffet! Though it is a buffet, it is in Innovations Restaurant where guests have the choice to order the buffet or off the menu, so beverages are provided by a helpful server. We're disappointed to hear there were too few available and will be sure to correct this for... More

We got a deal for $79/night including breakfast. The hotel is located downtown by the Riverdale and you can easily walk to shopping and sights in that area. Check in was easy and pleasant. The room was clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had no exhaust fan, which seems to be true of all Hilton's.... More

Our window was not a small deal, it was a huge picture window. The ricer was the primary view and accompanied by a Navy battleship, tug boats, a boardwalk and tons of places to go within very short walks. Truly loved our stay.

We're so glad to hear you had a wonderful time with a beautiful view! It's hard to beat the majestic presence of the USS North Carolina resting just across the river from the hotel. We hope you'll visit us again soon. More

We went on a travelzoo deal and really enjoyed it. The hotel was clean and modern. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Server in the Innovations restaurant, Jackie I think, was so nice. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is right on the River Walk. Lots of street vendors and tons of eclectic restaurants and bars in... More

My husband and I took advantage of a discounted weekday rate during our one night stay in Wilmington on business. Our accommodations were on an upper floor, with a nice view of the city. The room was refurbished, clean, and comfortable. The hotel staff was accommodating and courteous. The parking fee is the same for self parking and valet parking,... More
