My wife and I went for an overnight trip to Wilmington. This hotel had been recommended to us by a friend. Check-in was easy. The room was comfortable and relatively spacious. There was a big stain on the carpet beside the bed that was a little disgusting. The bathroom was nice but there was not an abundance of towels. We had a river view which was nice. The gift shop was tiny and inadequate for gifts. Magazines and snacks were fairly limited. We discovered breakfast by accident since we were not told about it at check-in. Breakfast was good but not wonderful. The buffet was not kept we'll stocked so that I had to wait and catch waitstaff to resupply it. I did not find it nearly good enough for the $30+ it cost. I previously had a very similar breakfast at a less expensive hotel that came with the stay. The location was great as there were lots of interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance. All in all, this was not the hotel I would have expected a Hilton to be. But the stay was okay, and it gave us the affordable opportunity to enjoy the area.
