Our HotelPlanner expert reviews of DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Wilmington - Legal District

Our experts HotelPlanner experts periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Great Hotel for Business or Leisure."
Overall score3.5/ 5
The Doubletree by Hilton Downtown Wilmington Legal District is located right off of King Street within walking distance to local companies and two blocks from World Café Live. This full service hotel has recently completed renovations that included the lobby and guest rooms. Upon entering the hotel lobby the staff greeted me immediately and was professional. Straight ahead is the front desk with a sundry shop next to it and then to your left is the main lobby with business center, one way to the guest rooms and other way is event space. Hotel amenities include complimentary WIFI, fitness center, indoor pool, connected parking garage (additional fee), complimentary shuttle service within five mile radius and three dining options on site: Metro Café (breakfast, lunch, dinner), Metro Lounge (dinner) and In room dining. Holding a meeting or event you can select from 19,000 sq. ft. of flexible space including a legal center. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler whether on business or leisure especially family reunions, weddings or sports teams.

"A poor nights sleep."
Overall score2.0/ 5
Our room shared a wall with the elevator shaft corridor so we heard the elevators going up and down all night through the walls. At least once a minute, if not more. I can't believe this is a room that they give to customers! It also smelled like stale smoke. I would not visit again.

"Bad Experience"

"Needs Updating"
Overall score3.0/ 5
Hotel is old. The indoor pool area is not heated. I was not aware we had to pay for parking and breakfast. Adding the extra costs, it's expensive for what it is.

"Nothing to rave about."
Overall score3.0/ 5
I was not informed of a few things like other customers were of a different skin color. I'm disabled and was locked out of my room for over an hour because Expedia messed up on there in with my reservation but I offered to show the confirmation email in my phone but it wasn't received. Because of my skin color. No apology nor any was offered for my inconvenience Ieft out and asked for my room to be cleaned and I came back to a unclean room. Again no apologies offered. After spending a week in this place I check out and was told my bill was clear and that I would get the incidental hold against my credit card for $100.00 instead I received a charge for $32.00 with no explanation.
