Wonderful stay for the holidays. The lobby was inviting and festively decorated. Rooms spacious and accommodating. Love the magnified mirrors and large soaking tub with book/iPad stand! Staff very attentive. Surprisingly quiet hallways.

Pleasantly surprised on the size and comfort of our room! A beautiful elegant hotel built in 1913. Gorgeous lobby, Green Room Restaurant, and ball rooms! Perfect place for a wedding! We stayed for 2 nights before flying home.

My wife and I went here for a wedding. Check in was at 4, we arrived at 430 and our room was not ready. We had to sit and wait 15 more minutes. We went to our room to freshen up before the ceremony. We came down from our room as the DuBerry room opening for the cocktail hour. When we checked out our room was charged another $44 for 2 glasses of wine from the Green Room bar, which we never purchased foot in. My wife doesnt drink and I only drink beer. The clerk told me the charge will go away. 5 days later it was still there. I contacted the manager who was rude with me when I was telling him I did not go in the bar and charged the glasses of wine. He ended up pulling the receipt and compared the signature from the bar receipt and the hotel receipt. He told me the refund was issued on 12/6. I received the receipt today 12/14 and it shows that the refund was issued on 12/14. I will never stay here again. Be careful and review your receipt.

This is my favourite hotel in the world so I don’t know how it is only the second in Wilmington! I love it’s size and the giant rooms. The corner suites are best. The Green room for breakfasts is best of all. Go for the egg Benedict’s. The staff are lovely as well.
