Need hotel close to Amtrak for an overnight stay

We will arrive at Wilmington (on Amtrak) at 9:41 PM. We need to find a hotel close to the station - or one with a shuttle that will pick us up.

We will leave on the Vermonter (Amtrak train) the next morning at 9:35 AM on the way to Burlington.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! We are seniors with some mobility problems, so can't walk a long way and stairs can be a problem.

I think you will need to call a cab. There might be a cab outside the train station, but I wouldn't count on it at that hour.

www.yellowpages.com/wilmington-de/taxis

Hotels near the Amtrak station (all way beyond walking distance for safety and definitely if there are mobility problems):

go to maps.google.com. In the search box, put in

hotels loc: 100 South French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 (Amtrak Station - WIL)

That will yield Sheraton, Doubletree, Hotel DuPont, Courtyard, Execustay. Any of those will be fine.

You can call to see if any have an on-call shuttle to pick you up at the train station. It's more likely that there might be a shuttle to drop you off the next day.

ok - thanks - this is exactly what I needed to know! One more question - We'll be hungry when we arrive. (Minimal fast food car on this train) Where would be a place still open? Not that picky, just to have something hot - as only sandwiches on the train car and we'll be on there all day long!
