We chose the General Denver Hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. If you enjoy older architecture and an historic feel to your hotel stay, this is the place for you. The restaurant/pub seemed to be a popular place, even on a Wednesday night. The rooms are small, consistent with the era in which this hotel was built. Comfortable, with private... More

While visiting family, we stayed at the historic General Denver Hotel. This is a charming, historic hotel with friendly staff. We knew the hotel was older, so we were expecting small things with the room. The room we stayed in didn't have a thermostat and it was plenty warm :) during the most frigid, windy night so we cracked the... More

This was our second stay at this charming hotel and enjoyed it just as much as we did our first stay. It's 20 miles off our route to our final destination but well worth the extra travel time. It's so much better than staying at a change hotel! The staff is so very personable, friendly and helpful during our stay.... More

I have stayed at the General Denver on 3 different occasions. A unique place and find it nice to stay in something other than a new hotel. The staff are always friendly and help in anyway they can. The restaurant is fabulous! Many hotels have breakfast included, but I will say theirs is one of the very best!

Historic Hotel in downtown Wilmington. We stayed while attending an event at Wilmington College. A local told us it was a great place to eat. They were right. The bar restaurant for dinner went from empty to full in about ten minutes. We discovered the great food at the General Denver last year. At that time we learned the hotel... More

My wife and I try to seek out unusual (non-chain) places to stay while traveling, and we couldn't resist booking a room in this hotel after reading about it's history. The hotel (built in 1928) has an amazing presence in this small town, and looks inviting from the outside. It's even cooler inside - an old fashioned register where your... More

This hotel was out of our way in our travels but so very worth the side trip. It was an amazing hotel with a even better staff who were so friendly. Our room was very comfortable. The restaurant, food was over the top!

Wife and I stayed here in June, when we were in town for a relative's wedding. I'll be honest, we weren't expecting much from central Ohio, but we were blown away by the quality of the food and the comfort of the room. We ate 4.5 meals here (I'm counting the pub fries as a half meal... more on those... More

My husband and I dined at The General Denver Hotel restaurant last weekend and the Black Bean Chili was great but the Carrot Cake was superb!! Likable plates for sure. The restaurant is situated in a historical building, very clean and the manager is very knowledgeable - his wife is the dessert chef. We will definitely go back - a... More

for the price is an excellent stay in Wilmington if you have the misfortune have to be in Wilmington Ohio. the rooms are very retro to a different time in our history. Delightfully clean what is modern of facilities as they can provide. The real gym is the pub on the bottom floor of the hotel. Complete with at least... More
