We visited Wilmington for a weekend and wanted to be close to everything. This is one block down from front street that has shopping, restaurants, and clubs/bars. Our room over looked the river across from the battle ship. Got to watch people kayak and paddle board down the river. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Bathroom was okay could... More

We spent part of our anniversary weekend here. Upon arrival, the staff was very attentive and friendly. There was one glitch in the beginning. Our toilet got stopped up twice. We had to call the maintenance person to come unstop it both times. The clerk at the front desk offered to move us to a different room if the toilet... More

This hotel is a bit dated and pricey for what is included. Parking is an extra cost; no extra touches in the rooms. Items such as a small refrigerator would be nice. Better lighting in the bathroom is needed. The location is great, but hard to justify the cost to stay. Just average accommodations, but $200+ per night.

I've been at a few second rate Hilton's in my day. This is by far the worse. It's time for an overhaul of the entire place including the management. The best part of my stay was the coffee bar in the lobby. The pool is a totally unsupervised free for all. Guests walking around with glass wine bottles, kids running... More

We visited Wilmington for my husband's birthday and 4th of July. A hurricane blew up, but that didn't stop us from enjoying Wilmington! The Hilton has recently added a terrace and hosted a 4th of July party that was simply wonderful! We had great seats for the fireworks. Breakfast at Innovations was also great. It was also nice to be... More

I sent my married "kids" here for their 5th anniversary weekend and the hotel staff went way out of their way to make them feel special! Their anniversary was acknowledged by staff upon check-in. There were surprises of extra "yummies" and drinks in their room (more than the normal extras for gold members) plus a Happy Anniversary note. Every report... More

Great location right downtown for shopping and restaurants. Easy for us to get to the places in the area we were going to. Enjoyed the view and parking was easy (we used valet but non-valet was easy too). Will stay there again if the situation warrants.

We stayed here in February 2014 for a half business, half personal visit. We were impressed and would definitely stay here again if visiting Wilmington. The location is faultless; the hotel is right on the riverside, and the entire downtown area of Wilmington is walkable. Views from the room are either of downtown, or of the river and the Battleship... More

Very friendly staff from the valets to the people at the front desk. Clean rooms nice pool to relax. Some sight seeing around the area and plenty of places to eat. Would recommend it for a place to stay when travelling.

We stayed here for one night over the Fourth of July weekend and had a lovely time. The staff was friendly when we asked to check in early and also provided a lot of helpful sightseeing tips for the area. The room itself was pretty typical for the Hilton brand, although the tub seemed to be a bit dated. The... More
