“Wedding Reception at Hilton Wilmington/Christiana”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana on June 15, 2013. Our wedding was such an amazing event! We had a lot of compliments about how beautiful the place was, along with how delicious the food tasted. Everyone was impressed with all aspects of our wedding and so were we. Our ceremony was beautiful and our reception was absolutely gorgeous!!! Words cannot express how happy we were with the staff and services, especially with Leah M. for all her assistance in the planning process and for creating a wedding for us that far exceeded our expectations. All of our family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed our wedding! ~Rosa & David

WOW! What an incredible review! First of all, congratulations on your marriage and thank you for entrusting us with the special day. We really are honored. Food and Beverage is something we have always taken very seriously here and we believe it really seperates us from other options that customers have in the area. I am grateful that you chose us! We look forward to your return on your first anniversary!

I have been working in the area for several months, and this hotel is the choice of my team. The staff at the desk is exceptional. And, I have stayed in many hotels in 13 years of travel. Several of us keep coming back week after week, amounting to several months while working here. The location works great for us, the staff is efficient and friendly, and the patio is a great place to chill for a while after work with music on Wednesdays and Thursdays when in season. It's our home away from home during the week. Jim

Very nice full service Hilton property. Exceptionally accommodating staff. Property is very clean. Comfortable rooms with well functioning HVAC. Plenty of free parking. Good breakfast. The seemingly never-ending I-95 construction project makes travel north of the property somewhat problematic.

Thank you for staying with us and giving the hotel such positive marks. Fortunately we are near the end of the construction project and it has already reduced the congestion significantly. Hope to see you soon!

Recently celebrated our daughters first birthday here. Celebration went very well. Thanks to all the staff and the manager Leah/Todd, the event went very well and smooth. If anything we were the ones who were a little delayed getting there :)

The guests were completely in awe of the room and the guest service. The food arrangements and set up worked out very well. Thanks so much for making our daughter's birthday even more special. And thanks for helping us plan everything. It was a pleasure working with you.

We have had a company training event at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana for the past two years. Theresa Langan, along with her team of event coordinators do an amazing job. They made sure all details are covered and did it with a smile and can do atitude. The meeting room, dining room, outside patio areas and sleeping rooms were all excellent.

I highly recommend the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana.

I decided to host my brother's rehearsal dinner at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana. I've been there before for other functions and was always impressed by the service. The dinner was a success! the staff was excellent and the food was amazing! I had great communication with the coordinators. I will definitely have the Hilton in mind for future events! Thank you again!
