We recently had a New Year's Eve wedding reception at The Hilton- Riverside and there were some good points and some bad ones. First, my room #428 was very nice and convenient to the elevator . It had a little foyer to reduce the noise and the 2 queen size beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was big with a...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 8, 2016

This stay was very enjoyable and I compliment the entire staff. Everyone was very friendly & accommodating. The room was comfortable & the restaurant food very good. The location on the waterfront in the historic downtown was the best!

The hotel is in an excellent location right on the River Walk. There are tons of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The restaurant is good, and service there was great. The room was very clean and comfortable, if a little bit old. I would highly recommend this hotel because of its great location.

We decided at last minute to get away for a night. Very pleasant staff. Enjoyed our stay, room and dinner. Valet service was very helpful and pleasant as well. We had a king bed room with view of the river. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

The Hilton Wilmington Riverside has an excellent staff. They are extremely helpful and efficient. The hotel also boasts a great location if you wish to stay in downtown Wilmington. The hotel is showing some age, though, and could use some minor renovations.

Enjoyed our brief stay in Wilmington. Room was clean except for a place on the wall behind the door that was stained. Had a breakfast in the dining room, morning of the first and the waitress was very nice friendly and helpful.

Near historic district and restaurants. Good walking access. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends and family. If you need a refrigerator during your stay though, you better request it. Service staff is very good.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff is very pleasant. The hotel is clean. The rooms are a bit on the smaller side but they're nice. The breakfast was good. The steakhouse connected is great. The view from the room is great. The Battleship North Carolina is docked in the river right next to the hotel.
