“Great Experience”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The hotel is well located, has a great ambience and good lobby. Though there are limited options for vegeterians for dinner, the breakfast menu is great. Rooms are comfortable and well designed really helps you relax. I had a good stay at the hotel. The staff is courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms on entrance side have a good view.

A short but very pleasant experience while attending a conference. Room was very comfortable. Dinner was fabulous. Crab specials was something I had hoped to experience while in Delaware. Great Choices!

Thank you for taking time to provide feedback on your visit. I'm glad you had a positive experience. Many "road warriors" make the comment that "a room is a room is a room. It really comes down to the people and the service". We know you have a lot of choices so we try to focus on what makes us different. Food and Beverage is one of those areas. I'm glad you had a great meal in the restaurant. Hope to see you back soon.

We were booked in at the Courtyard Marriott, but after the first night, but moved to Hilton b/c the beds/pillows were so uncomfortable. Even though we could hear a noise that sounded like the elevator, we enjoyed a very restful night. Would have like to use the pool/spa, but at this location it is outside.

This is a beautiful hotel, little pricey for the area; however, similar to the others in the area. The breakfast buffet is AWESOME! I have been to this hotel many times for breakfast and to eat and it is delicious, well worth the extra charge.

Thank you for such a positive review of the hotel! There certainly are less expensive options in the area but we believe you get what you pay for! One of the things we have worked very hard on is breakfast. There are very few hotels in the area that provide a breakfast that involves no frozen product and such a great selection. I'm very happy this was a big impact area for you. Hope to see you soon!

My stay was for a brief business overnite from Oct 1 through Oct 2, 2013. When I called to make reservations , I asked if they had a shuttle from the train station to the hotel . I was informed that there was and told to just call the hotel when I arrived. I called however was informed that the shuttle service was not availble that day and I should catch a cab. The cab cost arount $35 dollars.
Arrived at the hotel and the check in process was smooth. Staff friendly.
The room was clean, nice bedding, bathroom was fine nothing out if the ordinary. There is a nice buffet breakfast as well as regular menu breakfast. Monday the restaurant was featuring a prime rib and I beleive crab leg special. It looked good, however my party decided to get to one of the restaurants in the nearby mall. The next day before I checked out and requested the shuttle service and was told it only operates in the evening. Bummer!!! Another $35 dollar cab ride back to the train station.

i recently had the chance to visit the area for a job. Upon arrival, I did notice the hotel had a somewhat aged appearance on the outside. On the inside, it was very classic and modern. Staff were super friendly! The hotel features a wonderful bar, great restaurant, and work out room. The courtyard was lovely as well, but since the weather was cooler, the area was closed.

I stayed in the king suite. My room was very comfortable, and very spacious. Nice flat screen TV, big bathroom, and big comfy bed. Housekeeping had the room cleaned very early, so it was nice to come back to a tidy room in the early afternoon. This hotel is located close to the interstate, so hwy access is easy. We were no more than 15 minutes away from any town or state for that matter. There are also restaurants and shops located right across the street. I would highly recommend the Hilton Christiana for this area.

This hotel just accommodated a party of 40 people touring the Brandywine area. We stayed 2 nights and had a delightful experience. The staff was wonderful and gracious. The rooms were beautiful and well appointed and the breakfast buffet pleased everyone. We particularly enjoyed the "omelet king" who expertly prepared our made to order omelets. I would definitely return to this hotel when I am in the area again!
