    Outdated did not meet expectations

    Due to construction in front of the building, we could not turn right to go to check in. There were no signs saying how to get to parking. Some elevators were closed (maybe due to pandemic precautions? Yet the service elevator was available). Bed was very uncomfortable - we rolled to the middle! The bathroom fixtures were loose and felt like they were about to fall off in our hands. The shower didn’t route the water fully - so the drain couldn’t keep up. There was a nice view of the battleship. I was expecting higher quality from a Hilton.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The hotel was clean and the bed was very comfortable! I was very disappointed that they charge for parking when the price to stay there is already pretty high. Also it was noisy the night we stayed and house keeping knocked on our door an hour before our checkout time.

    Location of hotel is great. The front desk staff were kind and courteous. I thought the corridors and room itself were very “worn”. I was disappointed in this aspect.

    Love that River View!

    The location was amazing. Was kind of put off because the room had no fridge and the gift shop did not offer coolers. But there is a convenience store directly across the street. Overall I would highly recommend the hotel simply for the view!

    Gave it try - not again

    Busy weekend - only 1 elevator was operational. There is a RuthChris steakhouse for dinner, but no breakfast/lunch rest. Coffee bar which is listed to open at 6:00am does not open until 7:30. Could be a much better place but is run like a motel. Yeah room was clean but should be more than that for price

    Valentine’s weekend

    I’ve been to this hotel in the past but it seems to me that it went down. The elevators were not working properly so it was long waits and I didn’t like the fact that we had to pay for parking. I also feel you should have refrigerators & microwaves in the rooms. That was an inconvenience for us. There was lots of construction going on in the area making it very difficult to get in & out of the hotel. For the money we spent it could have been better. I can say that the hotel was very clean.

    Great hotel and location!

    Amazing hotel! Probably one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. My room was the size of an apartment and has everything you would need. Only a couple of downfalls. The on site restaurant and was closed so the only option to eat on site was Ruths Chris but luckily there are alot of restaurants within walking distance. Also, when I arrived they gave me a key for on site parking and never mentioned a fee which turned out to be $15 a night which would have been fine if they would have told me. Other than that this stay was flawless and I will definitely stay again on our next trip to Wilmington!
