          Stunning Design Details, Maybe Not Actually Luxury”

          There are parts of this hotel that are simply stunning. The interior design is tasteful and works well with the historical elements in many of the common areas. The onsite restaurant was spectacular, and worth every penny. But the rooms were kind of "meh," and I think I would have been disappointed if I had paid the full rate. I will say, the hotel is doing everything they can to make guests feel safe and stay healthy. I had no problems with the COVID protocols and in fact appreciated that the hotel was actively trying to keep folks safe. I would happily stay here again at a discounted rate. I'm not sure I would pay full price.

          Luxurious escape ”

          The lobby and ball room are truly magnificent. The rooms themselves are a little boring and corporate and our central air did not heat the room, but was an otherwise fabulous escape. Wilmington is a really cool city

          Lovely hotel, bring your own. ”

          The historic hotel is beautiful, the room was lovely, the bed perfect. Here comes the but… No place to get a drink before 4 PM in the hotel, nothing around the hotel either. The only food or drink available is in a mall-like food court that is mostly unmanned most of the time.

          Elegant but with a couple key things missing”

          Very elegant and charming old hotel on a pretty public park and in the center of town. Friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant and even a little theatre in the building. Two key thing missing however - for such a nice hotel the mattress and pillows were old and worn and needed replacing, and the curtains didn't keep the light out.

          Lovely hotel, very clean and well kept. The restaurant, however beautiful, has not kept up with the times. Service is dreadfully slow and the food in only mediocre. The prices are pretty high
