“Business traveler pleased with the comfortable, convenient & new hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I'm a business traveler and was pleased to discover the new hotel in downtown Wilmington. Rooms have a great set up, clean, modern, good gym, walking to restaurants and water front. I would recommend to anyone wtih business in Wilmington, or for those visiting for non-business.

Beautiful new hotel right in the middle of all things happening in Wilmington! Step out the door and you are right around the corner from fabulous restaurants, shopping, nightlife and on the week ends (seasonal) the downtown farmers market.
Hotel is beautifully designed and decorated, modern, clean and comfortable. The bistro is a great place to begin your evening with friends before heading out. The outdoor patio area is beautiful! Stylish seating areas and a fire pit make it the perfect place to cozy up with a book or your other half. The pool was not open yet, but is designed to give the area a grecian palazzo feeling.
Our room was a corner suite with floor to ceiling windows showcasing the downtown district. Fully equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker and super fast complimentary basic high speed internet and two televisions. The walk in shower was a perfect added touch!
The management and staff were amazing! Clearly making sure every guests needs and wants were attended to. They definitely believe i delivering GREAT service!!
Reserve your room now for a romantic week end or a weeks vacation. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the corner suite!

We made a spur of the moment, first time trip to Wilmington- with no precious experience, we didn't know what to expect. After being turned away by the riverfront hotels due to no vacancy, we were pleasantly surprised to finally stumble upon this place. Brand new, extremely clean, awesome location, cool amenities (we spent hours by the firepit).

The only cons: our view was not great- but that's to be expected downtown.
The pool is not functional yet- and the yellow caution tape adds a Law & Order flavor that we weren't prepared for..

We will return!

I had a 3 night stay last week. The hotel is very nice and located in the historic downtown area. I was traveling on business so I only got to explore the area minimally. Be sure to book a room away from the elevator and 2nd. The music from both areas is audible in the rooms in those areas. It made sleeping a bit tough. If you are traveling on a budget, the $8.00 off - site parking and no continental breakfast could be a surprise. If you don't pay the $15.00 valet fee, the hike in with your luggage can be interesting.

The room was comfortable. The feather pillows and down comforter were a plus. If I were on vacation and not watching the expense account I'm sure the extra fees wouldn't have been a problem. Overall, a nice hotel, I never saw much of the staff. I am not sure if I would choose it again for a business trip. I would if I were visiting downtown for fun

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, great location. We were made to feel very welcome by multiple staff members. You can chose valet parking $15, parking garage $8 or find your own. One issue that did not bother us but could effect others, we stayed on a Friday night and lots of shouting and loud music could be heard from the bar just outside of our window.

We are so glad you have experienced a wonderful stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Wilmington, NC and it sounds like you were able to take advantage of some of our wonderful amenities. Getting a good nights rest is so important when traveling and I am truly sorry the night life across the street was loud. I have addressed this issue with the management staff across the street and they were very apologetic and told me they will have this issue addressed. We look forward to welcoming you again soon!

We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel within its first 3 weeks of bring open. It is located in the heart of downtown. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, modern and clean with plenty of space. Parking is $10(self parking in garage across the street) or $15(valet parking in the same parking deck as self parking)

This is a beautiful property. The service was great. Donna, at the front desk, was wonderful to us all and made me feel welcome. The hotel is in a great location with plenty to do. I look forward to staying here the next time I am in Wilmington.
