Visited Wilmington for a business trip that used the conference room in the hotel during the week of April 26th. It was a great visit at a super clean hotel with a wonderful staff. The location is great with plenty of restaurants and local breweries within walking distance.

I recently visited this hotel for a conference. This is my second stay in a few months. The place is outstanding! The staff is super friendly and place is spotless. The hotel looks small but when you get inside it is perfect. It even has a pool on the 3rd floor and a Starbucks. The breakfast at the Starbucks is good also. If you are looking for a pleasant stay this is the place for you. The best part about it is the location. You are literally walking distance to all the great restaurant's, bars, and grills in the downtown area. It really takes the hassle out of your stay. Parking is across the street and not a hassle either.

I have stayed at 3 Marriott properties on this road trip and this one is hands down the best. From check in with Taylor to the very clean room. Everything is in working order. Perfect location for exploring the downtown area.

Wanted to stay in downtown Wilmington after a few days at Carolina Beach. The location is great, walking to restaurants, shops, riverwalk, horse drawn trolley, and historic buildings. Arrived early, room was not ready, understandable since the hotel was sold out due to the annual marathon being run that morning. Valet put the car aside till the room was available to unload. Staff were efficient and friendly. King room was clean and well appointed. Covid protocol in place.

First, Will was the very best experience at a hotel ever! He was always friendly, helpful and on time with our car service, making our trips flow smoothly. The hotel is clean and conveniently located. We walked down town and experienced the bars, restaurants, and a boat ride. The fire pit was warm and a great place to enjoy an adult drink from the lobby at the end of evening. We will definitely return. Wishing Will good health and happiness until next time.
