5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for two nights, April 15 & 16, 2014. This was our second time staying at this hotel. We had a great room on an upper floor with great river views and a great view of the battleship. Our room was large with a king sized bed and a spacious bathroom. The bed was comfortable with nice linens.... More

This hotel has an incredible location right in the heart of the historic area. The views are exceptional! The staff is very friendly and very accommodating. They helped us with every request-including looking for a nearby post office and coffee house. The lobby is modern and well-appointed. However, the hotel rooms are VERY shabby!! The carpet and furnishings are very... More

My window had a view of the Cape Fear river. The hotel is centered on the Wilmington historic district and an easy walk to the many hotels and shops in downtown. I found a decent price online when I reserved through Hilton, so I'm not sure about all the pricing complaints in previous posts. I usually reserve several weeks out,... More

If you are looking for a hotel that offers complientary breakfast and a refridgerator and microwave in the room then this is NOT the hotel for you. For the price, I expected more not less. The hotel was very clean and the staff was excellent and the location was great but that is the best I can offer. For the... More

The rates at this hotel are exorbitant. Service is horrible and the facility is run-down. A very negative experience. My son was terrified when a heavy ceiling tile fell from the ceiling into the shower. We never had enough of any supply: toilet paper, shampoo, coffee stirrers, bath linens. It took multiple requests to get anything. The hotel is very... More

I recently attended a conference held at the Hilton Riverside Wilmington and was amazed at the service received. The check-in process was quick. The food was good but not anything to get excited about. My hotel room was always cleaned in a timely manner and always had clean towels although I indicated I would reuse my towel. The location of... More

A perfect location next to the riverside. Our room directly overlooked the USS North Carolina battleship museum. Walkable to quaint shops and fine dining. The river walk provides a picturesque boardwalk for running along the water. The room walls are paper thin however- so all conversations amongst rooms and in hallways are easily heard and can wake anyone up from... More

Beautiful property - good restaurants within walking distance - friendly staff. My only complaint...they should have a concierge lounge for diamond members. At that price point - this would be an expectation for me during business travel.

The hotel is very clean and walking distance from places to eat and shop. The river view and city view are fantastic. The food served at the conference that was prepared by the hotel was outstanding. I would have to say the best conference meal I have ever had. Internet service was free and it worked very well. The room... More
