Let down,expected more from the name Hilton

I booked through this site which made it very easy. I like that. Upon check in I was told I had to pay for parking for each night of stay. I was unaware there would be a charge for parking. Then once we got to our room I could not locate a refrigerator. I like to have cold drinks on hand when I'm away. I called the desk and they said we don't put refrigerators in the rooms,but I could rent one for $10/night. Reluctantly I did it. It was the smallest dorm frig you can find. Mold and hair in the shower. The only thing that was as described was we did get the king bed and river view as requested. One of the two elevators was not working properly so wait times were long. We were on the 5th floor so kinda needed to use it. No free breakfast. I really expected a lot more from this place. I was distracted by the name Hilton but I guess that doesn't mean much.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Dixie Grill is excellent for breakfast. Worth the walk. Just a few blocks away.

Nice

Staff was very helpful and friendly at the front desk. There was an issue with the pool bar, we payed cash but noticed she also charged us to our room. The front desk was helpful and took care of the issue. Comfy room, good food!

Good stay but....

Rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Shower hot water seemed to take a long time to warm up (15 minutes) and never seemed to get past "warm".

Hilton Wilmington

For the price it wasn't worth it. But since they don't have much competition, they get away with it. But Marriott is building a hotel close and they will easily get the business. The Hilton was drag, dingy, and needed a really good cleaning. The carpet in the main lobby, stairs, conference area was almost to the point it was gross. Plus the pool area was suppose to be done and it was not.

Great last minute get away

When we travel we spend most of our time outside of the hotel, that being said the hotel was clean and the staff friendly. Beds we comfortable and linens looked fresh.
