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.

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.

Parking Nightmare!

My husband and I have stayed at the Hilton Riverside in Wilmington, NC several times before. For the past two visits, we have been very disappointed with this facility, especially the parking. After paying $9/night, you receive a tag for your vehicle which apparently gives you a hunting license to find a parking place wherever you might see one. Our first night with them, we found one space in the designated lot beside the hotel when we arrived around 5:30 p.m. The followiing evening, we did not return to the hotel until around 8:30 p.m. There were no vacant spaces in any of the three designated lots. We wound up parking down the street from the hotel. We did not feel very comfortable leaving our car there but we had no other choice. The hotel had a wedding and reception booked for that evening in one of the ballrooms as well as some sort of dance taking place in another area. Plus it was Saturday night so there were people coming to eat at the Ruth Chris Steakhouse which further took up parking spaces. When we walked back into the hotel from parking down the street, we had to manuever past several very drunk people. At approximately 2:30 a.m., we were awakened by some obviously drunk people in the hallway outside our room singing, clapping and talking loudly. When we checked out on Sunday, the nice young lady at the front desk took the $9 parking fee off of our bill since we were not able to park at the hotel. We have stayed at other Hiltons and enjoyed our stays immensely. However that is not the case for the Wilmington Riverside.

Great Location for seeing NC history

This was a terrific location for a business trip. Also try the sweet potato fries in the hotel restaurant. They are outstanding. Instead of being coated with salt they are covered with cinnamon and sugar. Very Tasty.
