    Fun stay in the fabulous area. It offered light continental breakfast for the money. Double room was scenic, very well taken care of. Cool coffee, tea and whiskies in the sports bar, easy to access parking place.

    Wanted to explore Wilmington and this hotel was best base for doing it. Adjacent to the downtown, 20 minutes on foot. Private bathroom with all essentials. Venue's barista helped us a lot! Worth its 4 stars.

    We liked the Riverside view from our room and the staff was awesome.

    The fact that we had to pay to park and no refrigerator in the rooms.

    Nice

    The view was great and the pool fantastic. I enjoyed the outside bar area was nice.

    The staff at the front desk were cold and very unfriendly. I will not be going back because of first impressions.

    Nice

    Location is awesome, hotel overall is nice.

    The staff at the front desk was not the nicest. We requested early check-in and our room was not ready. They didn't offer to call or text when it was ready. I just feel they could have been much more accommodating since we spent $300 for one night there. We expected wonderful service. The room itself was not all that impressive either. You are paying for the location I suppose, which is def a plus.

    Nice

    Location was excellent. Bed slept good & area was clean felt safe!

    We didn't like the small bathroom. I should have checked because I didn't know the room didn't have a refrigerator or microwave. Free breakfast would have been nice. Next time I will verify more closer before I book. We were use to these things being the norm!!

    Very good

    Location of Hotel, and view of the river from our room was fabulous. Riverwalk also a nice bonus. So much to do within easy walking distance.

    First nice hotel I've ever stayed at without a real bar. Bar inside Ruth's Criss closed at 10, other small cafe type had some limited drinks, but for a nice Hilton, just very strange not to have its own bar. Only other thing was the very poor bathroom lighting by the mirror, not enough for women to do hair and makeup.
