This hotel is on the Riverwalk and is central to downtown Wilmington. You can walk to Front Street and the many restaurants and shops within a few blocks. The hotel is large with restaurants, meeting rooms, an outdoor pool and an outdoor seating/bar area. Staff is very accommodating. The rooms are somewhat updated but I did not have a refrigerator...

My husband and I stopped in Wilmington on our way home from Myrtle Beach. He chose this hotel based on it being a Hilton and its proximity to the river. Pros:Check in was easy and the guy that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. They have valet parking available, as well as self-parking. We had a room on... More

Rooms are sub par. No refrigerator. No microwave. Staff is very friendly. Lobby and pool area is good. Place is overrated and way over priced!. Cost was $450 after taxes and parking for 2 nights. Yes, parking is an additional $11/night. Overall clean, not a bad place to stay just not even close to $225/night. Wish I had read others... More

This was my third visit to this hotel at about the same time of year--during the humidity and heat of summer in coastal NC. The best part about this hotel is the location. We walked everywhere we went from doing the Haunted Pub Crawl to shopping at the Cotton Exchange and Chandler's Wharf to eating at Elijahs and Pilot House... More

Hotel is overpriced and extra charges for everything. Additional fee to park and not enough parking availablen. Breakfast is overpriced and it worth the cost. The hotel was clean and nice but no fridge in room.

Do not like getting hit with a parking fee, not like we were in New York, with limited space. And put a fridge in the room hate the buckets of ice to keep 2 drinks cold, not to mention the 75 yard walk to get the ice.

Room service was wonderful with a delicious filet mignon and seafood ordered. The pool overlooked the river and was spotless and warm. Pool bar had very friendly service and very... More

Upper floors were quiet and the pool was uncrowded. View was ok and amenities were average. Took forever to get hot shower and neither fridge or microwave were in room. Not really a $200 night hotel with $14 valet or not. May be worthy the price if they up their game. At least give robes to diamond members. Local Dead... More
