I stayed here in 2008 and was really impressed with the accommodation and staff...3 years later and it was just as good, if not better than I remembered.
I stayed on my own last time, but this time I had my brother with me. We both enjoyed the room we had which was very modern and considering I am a BW loyalty member and I was at the start of a 3 month trip, they have one of the best quality rooms I have come across thus far. I was very impressed by the quality of the room, the bathroom was very nice, and the free car parking since I had a hire car was awesome! The room rates were also great value too!

The hotel is central to Historic Wilmington, and with a car everything is so accessible whether it is in Southport or Wrightsville Beach. You could stay at the Hilton next door, but why pay so much for a few more feet closer to the main street? This is a place I always stay at in Wilmington, not because i am a BW member, but because it is a hotel I love, it is on the water with great views from every room, and the staff are nice and always willing to help.

You can't go wrong staying here, I came back after 3 years and will be back next year and the year after when I return to the US for further trips. I love Wilmington, so I always love coming back and staying here! You will love it here, it was yet another awesome stay! Thanks again!!!

Room Tip: All rooms face the water, you cant go wrong no matter what room you are given!

Great hotel right on the Cape Fear River. Although the hotel was not heavily booked I received a very good rate ($89) with short notice. The free breakfast was the standard, but the staff was very friendly & the food was fresh. Rooms are newly refurbished and clean. Great view of the river and of the Battleship USS North Carolina. I would stay here anytime.

Room Tip: Go for one that has a view of the river.

We spent one night here -- a quiet Sunday night. Room was very clean and comfortable with nice view of the river and a short walk to restaurants/shops at River Walk. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They did make sure to tell us the property was all smoke free -- nice for us non-smokers but didn't expect the maid to be smoking on the walkway between the rooms and elevator. Nice breakfast with eggs, waffles, etc. Would stay here again.

I’m living in the area for now but enjoy a nice staycation. This weekend was the beer festival so I decided to stay downtown and was glad I did. As I was driving up the front desk called me a cab so I could be on my way to the festivities. As I was checking in they informed me they were very sorry but they gave my room away…….so we are putting you in the Suite. The hotel was nice, the staff was friendly, I WILL stay there again. As for location it takes about 4 min and your right downtown. On, a side note they have a large building next to it (maybe the convention center or part of the old rail station) that was putting on a wedding, looked like a great spot and a great time.

Room Tip: If you can get a free upgrade to the suite, try it the shower is amazing.

Great hotel, great location, great staff. We took a few days away for our 24th wedding anniversary so we wanted a romantic getaway. The hotel has a beautiful setting; riverside with a boardwalk and a 2 story pier. Much better than it appeared in the pictures on the internet. It was a wonderful place to enjoy a sunset. The rooms are small and cozy but the use of the space is very good. The only thing that disappointed me was that thier was no pool but that was my fault; I should have checked. Also, this is the first room I have checked into in years that did not have a refridgerator. Again I shoud have checked, but did not think I needed too.

Regardless, great stay. The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly.
