This hotel is right on the Cape Fear River and hosts a boardwalk. Not sure how far it runs since it was too chilly to walk it. However, if your room faces the river it's a pretty view overlooking the river and you can see the Battleship North Carolina which is available to visit as well while visiting Wilmington. The room was very comfortable and clean which are my priorities. The hotel has a few restaurants to include a Ruth Chris. For dinner we were not too hungry so we decided to eat at the Ruth Chris bar area. My husband had a open filet steak sandwich and i had marinated filet steak kabobs both were delicious and plenty for dinner. There is a smaller kiosk in the lobby for starbucks coffee and I believe cocktails, I did people purchasing beer there. In the morning we ate at their cafe on the lower level and it was very nice. Typical buffet or you can choose what you would like from a menu. We drove around a bit and found many stores abandoned / closed and then there were many typical beach type shops with all the junk souvenirs. The older homes surrounding the center city were beautiful to drive by, takes you back in time. We were only there over night so we didn't have a chance to tour the city further. The only thing I would add here is our room also overlooked the pool area which was a little messy and not cleaned up, I'm assuming it's because it's too early in the season...
