Great service from the bar and that carried over to the wait staff. We had a party of 6 with no reservation on a Thursday night and after 20 minutes or so, we were able to be sat. Minimal wait. The Apps we ordered: Brad's pub fries (yes! get them), Spinach & Artichoke Dip (yup. even the homemade chips), and... More

Best spot for a dressy dinner or casual dinner in Wilmington. Menu has good variety, and locals appreciate their presentation. Old historic hotel with ambience. Formal room and grill room but the grill room is busiest.

Went to Mother's Day Brunch this past Sunday, 5/8/16. I understand it was Mother's Day, and a little bit of a wait is to be expected - but - it should not take 45 minutes to get your food when you have to choose from a limited menu. The entire idea of a limited menu is to give the kitchen... More

I have driven by this place lots of times but never stayed here. So glad I stayed this time through Wilmington. The staff and owners here are so nice, the food in the restaurant was amazing and the room was very cozy. Even though it is an older property, the amenities were fine and things were thoughtfully added - nice... More

My wife and I were traveling in a part of Ohio we have never been before. At the last minute, we called to see if there were any rooms available and much to our good fortune we got the last one at the General Denver Hotel. What a wonderful surprise! The property is OLD, almost the same as it was... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, were in town for a concert and stayed one night at the General Denver. We were booked into two adjoining rooms which was a surprise --- and perfect! The old hotel is fun of character and charm including the state's oldest operating elevator, which must be operated by a staff person (makes... More

We chose the General Denver Hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. If you enjoy older architecture and an historic feel to your hotel stay, this is the place for you. The restaurant/pub seemed to be a popular place, even on a Wednesday night. The rooms are small, consistent with the era in which this hotel was built. Comfortable, with private... More

While visiting family, we stayed at the historic General Denver Hotel. This is a charming, historic hotel with friendly staff. We knew the hotel was older, so we were expecting small things with the room. The room we stayed in didn't have a thermostat and it was plenty warm :) during the most frigid, windy night so we cracked the... More

This was our second stay at this charming hotel and enjoyed it just as much as we did our first stay. It's 20 miles off our route to our final destination but well worth the extra travel time. It's so much better than staying at a change hotel! The staff is so very personable, friendly and helpful during our stay.... More

I have stayed at the General Denver on 3 different occasions. A unique place and find it nice to stay in something other than a new hotel. The staff are always friendly and help in anyway they can. The restaurant is fabulous! Many hotels have breakfast included, but I will say theirs is one of the very best!
