I recently spent a long weekend at the Front Street Inn and the worst part about it was leaving! I stayed in the Pearl S. Buck suite which was very clean and stylishly decorated (not in the antique-y way most Bed and Breakfasts are). The breakfast that they serve is delicious and was re-stocked frequently by the extremely friendly staff. I actually got one of their spa packages and had a bottle of champagne chilling on ice when I arrived, along with hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries, a goodie basket, and an in-house massage. I can't wait for my next stay in this lovely hidden treasure. If you get the chance, stay in this inn!

We stayed at the Front Street Inn for a long holiday weekend and loved it. Our room was the "Segovia" which cost $138 per night (not including taxes). This room has a poster bed, comfy leather recliner w/ottoman, wet bar, a table and two chairs, and an armoire with television. The room has a 14' ceiling and a ceiling fan over the bed. Although located on the first floor and on the street side of the inn, the room was very quiet. The bath did not include a bathtub but did have an oversized shower. The bath had a unique decorative paint motif done by a local artist. Two plush robes were provided in the suite as well. Our friends stayed in the "Cabana" suite on the second floor. This is a slightly larger suite which also has a wet bar and a garden tub as well. This room cost $188 per night. Rooms on the second floor may be accessed by a private stair at the outside of the building. This led to a private porch area adjacent to the second floor suites. Breakfasts were in the main entry area and featured a wonderful variety of juices, coffee, fruits, cheeses, cereal, and breads with jam. In the evenings we enjoyed relaxing in the Sol y Sombra bar area with a glass of wine. After returning from dinner in the evening, we enjoyed playing pool downstairs in the activity room. Our group found that the Inn is very close to the riverwalk and this was an excellent place for morning jogging. (The Inn is within easy walking distance of many restaurants and shops.) Innkeepers Jay and Stefany helped with recommendations for dining and even made reservations for us. They also helped someone from our group arrange a visit to a local day-spa. Altogether it was a wonderfully quiet, private place to stay with luxury amenities at a very reasonable price.

My fiancé and I enjoy taking several trips a year to Wilmington for weekend vacations and had always stayed on the beach. This March, we stayed at the Front Street Inn downtown and I must say it was spectacular. We will never stay on the beach again. The owners put their heart and soul into the place and it shows. The entire inn was immaculate and the staff was so personable. The rooms all have different themes and very comfortable. We stayed in a suite called the Bistro, which included a contemporary style hand painted bed, jacuzzi and beautiful hard wood floors all for $150 + tax. It was well worth every penny. You really have to see it to believe it. You will not be disappointed.
