Visited Wilmington for the first time for work and though the Hilton Wilmington Riverside stretched my budget a bit, I chose this property for the proximity to "where I needed to be".
Service was attentive, prompt and friendly without being pushy. The only real hint of age on this property is the elevator inspection report which lists the original inspection date -- otherwise I would have guessed it was much newer. (The property does appear to have an "old wing" and a "new wing" but from my room in the older section I was none the wiser without looking hard).
Room service food was likewise good and prompt (though the margarita could have used a bit less tequila or a more thorough mixing).
Sitting in the room and staring out overlooking the river and boardwalk was a wonderful way to end the night after a long day working. The deck looked like it would be a wonderful place to relax, sadly it was fairly gloomy both nights I was in town for this trip.
Location was great for where I needed to be -- the rental car was completely unnecessary as I could walk everywhere I needed to go within 10-15 minutes. If I return I probably will opt for taxi/shuttle instead.
