Can't say enough good things about the staff. The Valet/Bell Hops were fabulously helpful even with my wifes 5 bags of food and such.
The room was super comfortable with a fantastic view of the river and the USS North Carolina! Not many hotels can boast of a battleship view like this.
The location is convenient for walking tours of the river area and the historical areas of Wilmington. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. But why would you leave for dinner when you have a Ruth Chris Steakhouse right in the lobby.
Only two complaints. The shower was a bit dated with a slow drain. The bathroom could have used a modern treatment.
The other is the thongs of folks in the lobby. They serve drinks at the coffee stand in the lobby and it was crazy all night Friday with half inebriated brides maids wandering around being loud and obnoxious. I suppose this is why I usually avoid tourist coastal towns in Summer.
Will likely stay again but maybe in late fall.
