We opted to stay downtown at the Hilton Riverside because we thought it would be more quaint. Our experience was disappointing. My review is based on the fact that I normally stay at a lot of Hilton Hotels worldwide. Usually, you can expect the highest standards at a Hilton, but it appears that Hilton attempted to renovate an old building in Wilmington and overlooked a lot of detail. Old elevators, small rooms, peeling wallpaper, missing grout from tile in bathroom, outdated decor in lobby and buffet area, dirty carpets, etc.. Just felt like they tried to update the hotel, but missed the mark enough that I regret staying there. i would recommend staying at a partner hotel in the area (Hampton Inn). The staff and service was good, but I would describe the overall condition of the hotel as a bit dingy. Disappointing for a Hilton... more Like a lower end hotel chain.
