Imagine how good it feels to have no worries when planning an event at a venue? The Hilton event team always exceeds expectations with prompt, flexible, and stress-free planning and execution of my event meetings. They are my go-to location, though there are many other choices. The team is friendly and customer service savy, with no drama. Ever. Thanks Theresa and Suzan!

A delightful place to stay during a business trip to escape from the work day. Very nice amenities, and great food. Enjoyed my week long stay. Really loved the water pressure, no wimpy shower stream. Pretty location, close to the mall and other restaurants.

This is the standard for "Pet friendly Hotels". They treat pets as quests. The rooms are clean, do not smell doggie and well maintained. We highly recommend this hotel if you are traveling with a pet. Great pillows.

We are indeed pet friendly! Thank you for mentioning this in your review. We realize leaving your furry friend behind when going on a trip can be a hard decision to make. We didn't want out guests to have to make that decision! We make an extra effort to ensure all of our pet friendly rooms are always up to standard, and are well maintained. It's great to know you felt this was the case.

The Hilton Wilmington/Christiana was centrally located for a recent business meeting of 75 people. The sales and catering staff was very professional and helpful every step of the way. Great value for a meeting in Delaware!

There are several front desk staff members to greet you when you arrive. I especially liked that someone stood in front of the desk to greet you and answer questions that didn't necessarily require the desk staff to answer.

The hotel rooms seemed like they could use an update - peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, the doors slam when others enter/exit their rooms. However, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable.

The business center is open 24 hours, which was a relief when I realized at 11 pm that I needed to print an attendance roster for the meeting.

Overall great for business travel and meeting space.

We set a group reservation for 18 rooms at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana. The group I was traveling with stays at over 10 properties per year. Everybody commented on how great the hotel is, some saying it was the best we have stayed at. A sentiment that I would have to agree with.

I highly recommend this property when visiting Delaware.

The breakfast buffet is well worth the price.
