I was working a local event and was booked to stay at this property. It was easy to find, conveniently located in the Legal District of Wilmington and a very nice place to stay. Check-in was pleasant and the front desk was efficient and that set the tone for the remainder of my brief, but well needed, stay. As far as dining options, my stay was on a Saturday, and there were a few restaurants but not a ton within walking distance. I'm sure it's a different story during the week. I ended up ordering room service and the food from the restaurant was some of the best, albeit pricey, that I've had in my hotel room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The only complaint - that I have albeit a minor one - is that the bathroom was pretty tiny. Otherwise this is a really nice property and I'd recommend it if you're in Wilmington.

James (especially) & Kimberlee on evening shift front desk were very professional, friendly & accomodating. I don't know the name of the shuttle driver for the evening of 4/29, but he too, was EXCELLENT. I have been here with my husband before on business trips, and this was a trip to visit theatre friends, and I think you are an OUTSTANDING option for Broadway tours, etc. that come thru town. Parking super reasonable, easy in & out, great staff (including Reggie in Engineering who introduced himself to me in the hall in case I needed anything). Well trained & considerate staff overall. Also, very happy that hotel bar was open late & accomodating to the late traveling/arriving theatre group I was visiting. Only caveat: Please get a better reasonable house wine than the Rex Goliath oir other choice--maybe RH Phillips or Big House. Rex Goliath has too many sulfates & hurts in the morning:-) Will always recommend/choose this hotel for my Wilmington stays.

If you find yourself assigned to a room in the proximity of the DoubleTree's (Wilmington, DE) indoor pool, quickly insist on another room. a) you will have NO internet connectivity in that room; b) there's a very "off-smell" likely due to its proximity to the indoor swimming pool.

Parking costs excessive at $15 per night Toilet lid would not stay up on its own, and shower drain was clogged Check-in took a while even at 11PM and it appeared that other staff were available who could have helped Other than that the hotel was great

Stayed 2 nights with another couple. Very friendly and helpful people. Our room was great. The other couple we were with had a view of the people where about 20 people were swimming. It was really loud so they asked to change and ended up in a room that stunk of baby powder. The restaurant in the lobby offers a breakfast buffet for $15. The staff there are really friendly and the food was standard. I'd stay here again because the price was right. Not a fan of the neighborhood but we were only there to sleep.

Just a quick one night stay but hotel was very comfortable. Room a little heavy on the color brown, not sure I would like that if I was staying very long. Front desk was quite clear about parking options. Breakfast service was very slow. They wanted me to serve myself at the buffet and I had to track someone down to pay.
