Reviewed 1 October 2016 via mobile

We enjoyed our stay here. Had a great view of the river. Room and bed were very comfortable. We spent a few hours at the outdoor bar, and really enjoyed our time there. Location is great, but the hotel is in need of an update. Would return again.

Probably one of the best hotels and location you will get in the area. Wouldn't say it was overpriced and offers a lovely breakfast option- certainly try it. The eggs menu to order was a lovely addition to a standard hot/cold breakfast buffet. The rooms were light and spacious and the parking was on site and easy to access. Well...

The room was dirty, sink was so shallow you couldn't wash your hands under the faucet, bottle of something gross found in the bathroom on the floor, dirty cards under the coffee table when we moved it to use the pull-out couch (which means they don't clean under the coffee table). The beds were very comfortable, but we were very...

Nice hotel, but the worst bathroom lighting. There must be problems with these chains, except the Hilton Garden Inn was not this bad. There is poor-to-no lighting to put on makeup. So disappointing, only a pretty non-effective mirror.

Staff is friendly. Lobby is nice. Rooms are semi-renovated but just comes off as old with new coat of paint. Coffee maker was not cleaned from previous person. Bathroom was covered in hair. Water takes 20mins to get hot so plan ahead or you will be late in the morning. Parking isn't free.

Nice Hotel. Some aspects were a bit outdated and there was a long walk to the elevator. But overall, I enjoyed my stay. Staff was excellent and very friendly. It's a bit pricey considering its age, but the location cannot be beat.

Great hotel stay in the heart of historic Wilmington. We had a very short walk to Front Street and 3rd Street (where many historic houses were). Excellent lunch at the hotel cafe and dinner at Ruth's Chris (very conveniently located in the Hilton). Visitors can take a water taxi to the USS North Carolina Battleship, right across the river from...
