“Great Hotel When Visiting UD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This hotel works out very well when visiting UD. It's clean, comfotable and quiet. The breakfast is excellent especially on Sunday when they offer omelettes. The drive to UD takes about 15 minutes, but the hotel is close to many nice restaurants

I'm glad we are such a good match for your needs when you visit the University of Delaware. Your observation about our proximity to area restaurants, shopping, etc. is spot on. We really appreciate your positive comments about breakfast as well. Hope to see you soon. Graduation will be here before you know it!

Just had a cocktail party for clients and it was handled beautifully! The event coordinator was completely "hands on" and always available and this attention to detail was continued with the entire staff. The food was a big hit with all and our party was a complete success. Thank you Christiana Hilton!

The Legion of Honor event was a huge success. Everyone was delighted with the arrangements. The food was delicious, the appetizers scrumptious and the staff was attentive to detail. True banquet professionals. The hospitality room worked out extremely well and again the food was a big hit. Anything we need the Hilton employees were there to make our evening memorable.

Just coordinated a banquet there for a non-profit organization, and it was a great space! The staff were very helpful. The food was good. The event coordinator was very accommodating for all of the vendors that we had during our cocktail hour.

Enjoyed a recent stay at this hotel. The facility is very nice. Out room overlooked the courtyard area which was quite pretty. The breakfast buffet was good and well presented. Our room was clean. All in all an excellent stay.

We stayed at the Hilton during UD parents weekend in November. This was our second stay at this Hilton. The staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. Despite having a full house the front desk went out of their way to find us a second room when we needed more space. The rooms are comfortable and surprisingly quiet even though you're near the highway. The property is beautiful but it is a little tired and needs some repairs - especially the doors. Not a big deal and certainly shouldn't keep you from staying here.

We really appreciate your loyalty. I hope the University of Delaware has been a good experience for your family. I'm thrilled that you find our staff to be friendly and accomodating. We have just replaced the guest room carpet throughout the entire hotel and have other renovation projects coming in the near future. Next thing you know, we will be seeing you for graduation!

We booked this hotel because it looked from photos like it was in a beautiful rural setting. While the hotel was lovely and it had a good restaurant, we really did not like the location. It's right on a highway , where there is major shopping. Very congested.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit. This area certainly has a lot going on! I'm sorry you were under the impression we were in a rural area. The good news is that the 3+ year road construction project is now concluding and traffic around the hotel has never been smoother! Hope to see you again soon.
