A small, old hotel well off the beaten path. We were actually put on to this place by a desk clerk at a nearby Holiday Inn. Its a clean and neat privately owned hotel/restaurant, with the owners clearly doing their best to reinvest and make the place better and better. The staff was OUTSTANDING, with special notice given to managers...

This historic hotel stands out as the jewel of downtown Wilmington, Ohio. I had called ahead for a reservation, but never actually went through with it -- a fact I neglected to remember until I was outside of the locked door of the GD on a Monday afternoon, searching in vain for the presence of an employee, or anyone, inside...

This is an old hotel in downtown Wilmington, Ohio. The restaurant is small but the food is great with a old time atmosphere. During the summer months they have live bands outside called Third Friday. A must stop while visiting town.

We recently spent the night in 204, a king room on the second floor opening onto the sitting room overlooking the lobby. If you like the 1928 era, you will love this hotel - lovely original dark wood, oldest operating elevator in Ohio complete with operator, wonderful breakfast included with stay, and excellent pub on site for meals. This is...

I have a passion for historic hotels, so when I found the Gen Denver on line, we went for it. We didn't have reservations, because we wanted to visit it first. Lovely old Hotel. When we went up to the front desk to check availability, we were greeted with a pleasant "Checking in?" When we said we didn't have a...

Great service from the bar and that carried over to the wait staff. We had a party of 6 with no reservation on a Thursday night and after 20 minutes or so, we were able to be sat. Minimal wait. The Apps we ordered: Brad's pub fries (yes! get them), Spinach & Artichoke Dip (yup. even the homemade chips), and...

Best spot for a dressy dinner or casual dinner in Wilmington. Menu has good variety, and locals appreciate their presentation. Old historic hotel with ambience. Formal room and grill room but the grill room is busiest.

Went to Mother's Day Brunch this past Sunday, 5/8/16. I understand it was Mother's Day, and a little bit of a wait is to be expected - but - it should not take 45 minutes to get your food when you have to choose from a limited menu. The entire idea of a limited menu is to give the kitchen...

I have driven by this place lots of times but never stayed here. So glad I stayed this time through Wilmington. The staff and owners here are so nice, the food in the restaurant was amazing and the room was very cozy. Even though it is an older property, the amenities were fine and things were thoughtfully added - nice...

My wife and I were traveling in a part of Ohio we have never been before. At the last minute, we called to see if there were any rooms available and much to our good fortune we got the last one at the General Denver Hotel. What a wonderful surprise! The property is OLD, almost the same as it was...
