We stayed at the Wilmingtonian for friend's desitnation wedding. While it wasn't on the list of hotels with blocked rooms, the rates were actually better than those affiliated with the wedding. Other friends were staying in neighboring hotels and we by far had the best value. The hotel was located within easy walking distance of all the wedding events, as... More

stayed here for one night on a quick overnight stay as part of a US road trip vacation. The hotel has a great location a short walk away from all down town attractions and restaurants. We were offered a reasonable rate turning up without prior booking and very friendly welcoming reception. Lovely room with great facilities - full kitchen and... More

We arrived in Wilmington on a Monday having spent the weekend in Myrtle Beach and heading back towards Charlotte. We had no accommodation booked and the tourist office gave us details of a few places. We liked the look of The Wilmingtonian and got a good deal. The check in staff were helpful and friendly. The room was more of... More

I decided to travel to Wilmington at the last minute for a weekend getaway and the Wilmingtonian did not disappoint! The hotel's accommodations are located in three restored buildings situated around a courtyard. My room, or small suite, was located in the Maritime House. The hotel is very reminiscent of a New Orleans or Savannah property. There is a guest... More

I found this spot through Trip advisor and all the reviews were accurate. I stayed in the middle building (i forget what the name was) in room 25 which was a corner suite. And i have forgotten to note the location to the riverfront was wonderful! My first impression on entering reception was fantastic. The clerk was very helpful and... More

Our suite in the Cinema building was really an apartment, ie, kitchen, livingroom, bedroom, and bathroom with washer and dryer. Flat screen tvs in livingroom and bedroom and very comfortable king size bed. The reception area provides water and juice, muffins, granola bars, etc all day long - gratis. The River Walk is just down the block as are many... More

Park your car and spend the rest of your visit on foot or on the free trolley that runs through town. The hotel consists of 3 buildings, we stayed in the Cinema. The one bedroom suites are perfect to relax -- rockers on each unit's front porch -- and fairly large with fully equipped kitchens, and washer/dryer. It is older,... More

We stayed in The Wilmingtonian last September. ( I forgot to review it then). I booked us a suite in the Cinema House. Car parking was free, and just across the small side road. We were on the upper floor, so had one flight of stairs. The suite was well furnished. Maybe slightly old fashioned, but all seemed clean and... More

This hotel is a great find in historic Wilmington. The location is nice and everything is within walking distance. The rooms are a little old but being in the historic district it's expected for things to be dated but it was still clean. The only issue is that the ac went out in the middle of the night. With that... More
